Here, patience is the key and thus, you should let your hair regrow from the previous wax session. If you wax your hair in some frequent sessions and do not let your hair grow in a good length before waxing, this will simply destroy the natural genetic build-up.
Always Exfoliate prior
Exfoliation is a very important thing to do before going for a waxing session. This helps in achieving a smooth finish for the skin and makes sure that you follow all the steps for a flawless skin base.

But with proper exfoliation before a waxing session, you can make this a pain-free process. As it opens the hair pores, waxing becomes much easier. This way, all the dead skin cells are removed and this further prevents ingrown hair. You can use a body scrub and make use of an exfoliating glove to exfoliate the part of your body that is to be waxed. After you are done, secure with a moisturizer and seal the skin. Make this a habit and make waxing much easier for yourself. Now you wouldn’t be scared of it as much.

Do not heat it for more than 3 minutes and turn it off midway if you feel like it is causing itchiness your skin. Any wax that is too hot for you not only causes your skin to burn but also disrupts the hair follicles thus, causing ingrown hair.
