The first time you sugar will be the most uncomfortable then it just keeps getting easier from there.

Why does sugar wax need lemon?

Due to its acidity, lemon juice is added to break up sucrose into fructose and glucose. This gives the resulting sugaring wax a non-crystalline, or amorphous, a structure similar to manufacturing candy.

Why is my sugar so sticky?

The consistency of sugar is greatly affected by temperature. We recommend sugaring in a cool room and using a fan if necessary. Sugaring will not work if you are hot or sweaty. Sugar is firm when it is cold and sticky and runny when it is warm. You want the temperature and consistency to be JUST RIGHT. The sugar just needs to be slightly warmed prior to use and should never be hot. The sugar can be kneaded in your hands like taffy then applied and smoothed. It will get stickier as you use it due to the heat in the room and the heat from your hands and body. Take your time and use the strips for easy removal. Be kind to yourself as you are learning and remember there is no need to get frustrated? This is sugar! Get sticky, practice, and have fun!

Why is my sugar wax not pulling hair?

Lack of pressure is typically the leading cause of wax not removing hair. The hairs won’t completely attach to the wax strip if you don’t press down hard enough.

 

Why is my sugar wax not ripping off?

You might have waxed incorrectly as well. Wax must be quickly removed in the opposite direction from where hair grows. Pulling the hair out will only be possible if it is rapidly removed enough (which can be challenging to achieve on your own). The hair may also break throughout the process.
