It’s 2022, and while we’ve certainly adapted to the pandemic situation, learning to live with it as best we can, the fact remains that the pandemic is still rampant and is a very real problem.
Considering our new reality, there has been an emphasis on convenience and remote services. We’ve adapted to conducting our meetings over Zoom calls, online shopping, and even remote fitness coaching.
However, there are certain things that you simply can’t do remotely, like going to the salon. If you want to get your hair cut, eyebrows done, or to get a wax, you’re going to have to go in to a physical place with actual physical people.
Thankfully, the pandemic having triggered into life an impressive number of entrepreneurs, they’ve come up with some home-based alternatives for your salon-going needs.
Homewaxer is one such incredible solution courtesy of Maryam, Founder of the brand, who has put together the perfect home waxing kit – a sugaring wax where you don’t actually need to heat or refrigerate it or even use strips.
Launched in June 2020, during the absolute height of the pandemic, Homewaxer was actualised in Maryam’s kitchen, as she, like many others – all of whom were baking bread and trying out weird cooking hacks – tried out a few sugar wax recipes and came across her perfect formula.
Speaking to Maryam about her product, she shared that what really sets it apart is the absolute convenience of it all. The fact that you can leave it out without having to refrigerate or heat it or use strips, which really makes it a mess-free, hassle-free, and relatively pain-free experience.
She shared that during that first month she tested it out and shared a few jars with her friends and it sort of became an overnight sensation when she launched an Instagram page almost on a whim, and the next thing she knew, she had a slew of glowing reviews and a thriving business on her hands.
Maryam did note that there is an element of practice involved with the product, noting that for the optimal use of the product you will have to give it a few tries. “You may not get it right the first or second time around, but a few tries in, you will figure it out,” she said. She noted that if people wish to use strips, they can do so, and Homewaxer also provides strips if they wish to go that route with the wax; in which case you will have to heat the wax – you can microwave it and use it as you normally would. Either way, Homewaxer will give you the necessary instructions, so there’s really no need to worry.
Sharing her own experience with the wax, Maryam noted that because it is all natural it hasn’t been irritating or harsh on her skin and as someone who used to wax quite often, she has noticed that her hair has started to grow back a lot finer and her skin always feels smooth. She also noted that the frequency in how often she waxed has also reduced.
The user reviews say it all, and if you’re looking for chemical-free, convenient, and quick home wax, then Homewaxer is the place to go.
