Hair Growth: It’s Just a Phase
Waxing works because the hair on our body grows differently than the hair on our heads. Check out Groupon’s guide to hair growth to learn the science behind strands.
Hair varies in thickness and length across our body, from the head’s massive jungle to the knuckles’ tiny brambles. But regardless of where it is, each strand of hair cycles through three phases: anagen, also known as the active growth phase; catagen, or transitional phase; and telogen, or resting phase. During the growth phase, a new hair shaft sprouts from a follicle as its cells rapidly divide and grow upward, forming tightly packed bundles rich with keratin protein. Next, the transition phase kicks in for about two to three weeks, during which growth stops and the outer root sheath shrinks, anchoring the hair to the follicle as it enters the final phase. At that point, the follicle lies dormant until the hair is shed and the cycle begins again.
Not all hair grows at the same rate. On the scalp, hair grows about 6 inches per year, with each strand spending about two to six years in the active phase. Meanwhile, hair on the arms, legs, eyelids, and eyebrows actively grows for a much shorter period—only about 30–45 days—and spends more time in the resting phase, which is why waxing these areas helps curb unwanted hair growth. Humans need removal methods such as waxing because we don’t shed our hair all at once like other mammals; our hair-growth cycles are random and staggered, whereas other animals’ cycles are mostly synchronized.
Radha's Day Spaz at Pure Salon & Spa
From her home base at Pure Salon & Spa, aesthetician and nail technician Radha sets to work beautifying her clients. She opened Radha's Day Spaz because she wanted to pamper visitors with facials, mani-pedis, waxing, and lash extensions; and as time has gone on, Radha has only added to her array of beauty treatments. The flexibility of Radha's skill set is particularly evident in her nail services. If you want a simple look, she'll paint nails with classic polish or lock down color with chip-resistant Shellac. But if you're looking for something a little more out-of-the-box, Radha will use tiny brushes, delicate decals, and her artist's eye to create intricate nail designs.
