How to strain hair out of hard wax

How to strain hair out of hard wax

If you are trying to remove hair from hard wax, it can be difficult. There are a few easy steps that will help you get the hair out of the wax without damaging your skin or wasting any more product! This is especially useful if you are trying to reuse your hard wax for another session. Read on below to learn how to strain hair out of hard wax!

Heat The Wax

Place the jar of hard wax into the bowl for ~15 minutes until melted. Be sure to put something under the jar so that it does not melt anything beneath it or break. We recommend using an old dish towel or wash cloth, as these are easy to dispose of after use and will protect your surfaces. Do not let any water get inside the glass jar during this step. While waiting for your wax to melt, work on de tangling hair or doing other tasks around the house. If you have several jars, melt them one at a time, as this process will take longer.

Check for Hair

After the wax has melted, check for any hair that may have been stuck in the hard wax and remove with tweezers or a fork. Even better, you can use a needle nose plier to remove stubborn strands! *Carefully fill your container with hot water from the bowl and place it on the stove over low heat. NEVER LEAVE THE KETTLE UNATTENDED WHILE HEATING! If you leave it unattended too long it might boil over and cause damage to your stove or burn injury to yourself or others. Be sure there is enough water so that after heating the jar of wax is covered by 1-2 inches. This will prevent it from boiling over or bubbling up and spilling.

If you do not cool the wax off quickly, then you will have boiled too much water out of the bowl and your wax will be extremely runny and hard to work with! You just want to remove any excess liquid so that you don’t end up with one large glob of liquid wax when melted. This should take 2-3 minutes maximum.

Can You Reuse Hard Wax?

If you are someone who uses hard wax often, make sure to get a second jar so that once the first one is cooled off, you can reheat it while working on de tangling hair or doing other tasks. This will make the process go much more smoothly and quickly for you.

You can reheat melted hard wax as often as you need, but be sure to strain it out before storing in the fridge for next time. Once your hard wax is strained of any strands, you will have no problem using it over and over again in your hair removal routine!

We hope this method helps solve some of the problems our customers have been having with straining their hard wax.
