Types of Wax

This type of wax is applied in thick patches and removed without the use of cloth. The wax cools then hardens around hair.

Soft wax is the most well-known type. The product is used in conjunction with cloth to remove hair. It is the ideal option for removing hair on large areas like legs and arms.
