How To Make Hair Removal Wax At Home

I’m sure that almost everybody goes to the parlour to get waxing done.  One fine day, I gave a thought about why can’t I do waxing at home. Instantly, I googled and came up with certain ingredients. I was so happy that the result was perfect!! The wax was made exactly the way we get in the parlours. Now, let’s see how to make wax at home in this step-by-step tutorial.

How To Make Hair Removal Wax At Home


(This measurement is sufficient to prepare a quantity that is enough for waxing your legs).

  • Sugar – 3 cups.
  • Water – 1/2 cup.
  • Lemon Juice/Vinegar – 1/4 cup.

If you want some sweet smell, you can add  any aroma oil.


  • Take the sugar in a saucepan and add water just to immerse it. Do not add much water as it will take more time for it to transform into wax.
  • Keep the flame in medium and stir occasionally until the sugar gets dissolved completely.
  • Now, add lemon juice/vinegar and keep stirring till a wax-like consistency is reached.
  • This would take around fifteen to twenty minutes.
  • Once the required consistency is reached, take the wax from the saucepan and let it cool to the room temperature.


How To Use Homemade Wax?

Now, before we start waxing, make sure the place to be waxed is washed with warm water. Pat it dry with a towel.

  • Now, sit in a place which is comfortable for you. Spread a newspaper and keep the waxing strips. If you don’t have waxing strips, you can use any old cloth which is tight and rough, for example portions of old jeans or an old towel. Make sure that it is stiff enough to sit on the wax, it shouldn’t be like a handkerchief.
  • Keep the wax and a blunt knife for application of the wax.
  • Keep some water close by in case the hot wax causes a burn.
  • Keep a moisturizing cream or aloe vera gel ready.


Directions For Use:

  • Apply the wax with the help of a blunt knife. Make sure the wax is not too hot. So, be careful about the temperature of the wax.
  • Now, keep the waxing strip/old cloth over the wax and press it slowly.
  • Now, remove the strip/cloth in the direction opposite to the hair growth.
  • It will pain if you remove it slowly, so be quick in removing.
  • Initially, it will pain a little, but be patient and quick with removing the strips.


  • You can apply this wax on areas like underarms, bikini line, thighs.
  • I don’t suggest application of this wax on other private areas of your body.
  • After waxing is done, apply any moisturizing lotion or even aloe vera gel. I personally feel that aloe vera is the best after waxing as it soothes the waxed area.
  • I repeatedly keep saying, not to apply the wax when it is really hot. It needs to cool down to the room temperature.  At the same time, it shouldn’t become cold too. If it becomes cold, it is so difficult to spread the wax evenly.
  • If the wax becomes cold, don’t panic. Once again pour the wax in the sauce pan and stir on low flame for three to four minutes.

Your homemade wax is ready!! You can make this whenever you feel lazy to go to the parlour.  If you are just like me who likes to make lots of homemade beauty stuff, you can bravely go ahead with this process. You can even prepare some wax earlier and heat it when you need them. You can store this in your refrigerator. Do not keep this in the freezer compartment as it will be too difficult to melt it down! I’m sure your skin will feel soft similar to when you visit a parlour!
