How to: sugar wax

4 years ago

so sugaring has been around for a long time, sugar wax is a great form of home hair removal, and it`s super cheap and easy to make! :o)
all you need is:
2 cups of sugar
1/4 cup of water
1/4 cup of lemon juice (about 1 large lemon; NO PULP OR SEEDS)
a pot to cook it in (no teflon, it can cause your mixture to be TOXIC)
and hair that you wish to remove

in the pot mix the sugar, water, and lemon juice. put the pot on the stove with the dial set at a medium heat. constantly stir the mixture, it is going to bubble up. you may have to lift it off the heat every now and then. you want to cook your mixture for about 25 minutes. (cooking time may vary!) you will know when your mixture is done by two things, 1. the color, as you cook your mixture the color will become darker, you want your mixture to be a dark amber color (like the picture above) if it is not dark amber in color it is NOT DONE. 2. "water test" it. have a small bowl of cold water next to you, take a small amount of your mixture on a spoon, dip it into the water and pick up the wax with your fingers, you should be able to shape it into a ball between your fingers. if it is just goo-ey then it is still NOT DONE.
also, try not to over cook your mixture. it will cause it to harden and ruin the wax.
when you know your mixture is finished, take it off the heat and let it cool for 10 minutes. you will need a glass air tight container (glass jar) to pour your mixture into. (other types of containers may cause your mixture to become TOXIC.) you are going to want to temper your glass container by running it under HOT water, so the glass will not break when you pour the hot mixture into the container. (you can do this while you are letting the mixture cool for 10 minutes.)
once you pour it into the container seal it and wait for it to cool. :o)
you can use sugar wax hot or cold!
