The Natural, Less Painful Choice for Hair Removal

What is Natural Sugaring Hair Removal?

Many people have never heard of Natural Sugaring Hair Removal. Considered one of the treasures of Ancient Egypt, sugaring hair removal combines sugar, honey and lemon juice to create an all natural and less painful solution for hair removal.

Trust us… Sugaring will leave you with a SWEET taste in your mouth! Something you using don’t get with waxing.

Sugaring for hair removal is becoming more popular as people search for more natural and less painful hair removal solutions.

Here’s why many people love it.

All natural sugaring pulls your hair out by the root. With traditional waxing, the wax sticks to your skin AND you hair. This method causes you to pull your skin and this is where the pain, redness and irritation comes into play.

Sugaring is a great choice for hair removal all over the body, with the exception of eyebrows where threading is a better option. The sugaring option has become a huge fan of those with sensitive skin and those with thin “peach fuzz” because there is less irritation than with any other option. **Note: Soft Sugaring can be used on eyebrows.

The Different Types of Sugaring

Soft Sugaring

Soft Sugaring, also known as Brazilian sugaring is a 100% natural sugaring paste made from honey, sugar, and lemon juice. Soft sugaring is designed for sensitive skin areas. It can be used for underarms and even the face… including eyebrows.

How to Use Soft Sugaring

  1. Make sure you have clean and dry skin. We recommend you use CocoJojo Sugaring Cleanser and Sugaring Sterilized Powder to complete the drying process and sterilize the skin.
  2. If the weather is cold you may have difficulty getting the sugaring out of the jar. Warm the container for a few seconds in a microwave or place the entire container in warm water.
  3. Apply sugaring in a cool room or in front of a fan. Try to provide the best environment to avoid sweating during the sugaring process. Sweating makes the process harder and can cause irritation. Always check the temperature of your sugaring before applying. It should be slightly warm, not hot. (80 F / 27 C)
  4. Once you have cleaned and dried the skin… use a tongue depressor to apply a thin layer of sugaring, against hair growth.
  5. Work Slowly.
  6. Apply the cotton strip and press firmly into skin.
  7. Rub the strip a few times to ensure sugaring has absorbed into strip.
  8. Tightly stretch skin with one hand and with 1 swift movement, pull the strip in the direction for the hair growth.

Whenever you feel sweaty add the appropriate amount of sugaring powder then continue sugaring. Sugaring is water soluble. We also strongly recommend using Sugaring Toner, to close your pores. Using Sugaring Serum and/or Azulene Oil to moisturize and reduce irritation, if any. Azulene Oil also delays future hair growth.

Standard Sugaring

Standard Sugaring is the traditional Egyptian sugaring, used for centuries to remove hair from the body and face. It is also 100% natural and made with lemon, honey and sugar. Again, this sugaring paste is also designed for body and face applications.

How to Use Standard Sugaring

  1. Make sure you have clean and dry skin. We recommend you use CocoJojo Sugaring Cleanser and Sugaring Sterilized Powder to complete the drying process and sterilize the skin.
  2. If the weather is cold you may have difficulty getting the sugaring out of the jar. Warm the container for a few seconds in a microwave or place the entire container in warm water.
  3. Apply sugaring in a cool room or in front of a fan. Try to provide the best environment to avoid sweating during the sugaring process. Sweating makes the process harder and can cause irritation. Always check the temperature of your sugaring before applying. It should be slightly warm, not hot. (90 F / 32 C)
  4. Take a piece of sugaring, mix and stretch for about 2 minutes. Apply this piece of sugaring against the direction of hair growth.
  5. Pull the sugaring, in a swift motion, in the direction of hair growth
  6. Repeat if hair is not removed completely.

Sugaring is the best natural way to remove short hair. Very short hair is a bit more stubborn to remove and we recommend allowing at least 6 days of growth to ensure effectiveness.

Solid Sugaring

Solid Sugaring, which is also called “bikini sugaring” is 100% natural and made with the same ingredients as the two previous options… lemon juice, honey, and sugar. Solid sugaring is designed for coarse and short hair, like the hair usually found in the bikini area. It can also be used in other areas of the body where coarse hair is found. However, it is not recommended for facial use or on hair shorter than 1/8 inches.

How to Use Solid Sugaring

  1. Make sure you have clean and dry skin. We recommend you use CocoJojo Sugaring Cleanser and Sugaring Sterilized Powder to complete the drying process and sterilize the skin.
  2. Use sugaring cleanser and sterilized powder to prevent sugaring from sticking to your skin.
  3. Work in front of a mirror so you can see the application areas.
  4. Warm solid sugaring in the microwave or in warm water for a few seconds.
  5. Solid Sugaring should NEVER be more than 100 F, to avoid skin burns. Use a thermometer or test a drop on the back of your hand before applying to large skin areas.
  6. Apply sugaring to a small area.
  7. Wait 20-30 seconds before pulling the edge with your fingers.Tightly stretch skin with one hand and with 1 swift movement, pull the strip in the direction for the hair growth.
  8. Tightly stretch skin with one hand and with 1 swift movement, pull the strip in the direction for the hair growth.
  9. Repeat if needed.

What about clean-up after Sugaring?

After you’ve finished with your hair removal process, clean-up is easy… All you need is warm WATER! Think about it. When you mix sugar with warm water, it dissolves. It’s just that simple.
