I agree with this whole heartily, I tried the wax a year or more ago and they just didn't feel good, always felt like candles. Now that I've waited some time and have tried again with a much more natural approach, they feel nice and light and flexible, like a cushion or something.

I think its dumb how they think they can put a label on something thats been around for so long and basically comes from nature. Its almost as bad as bottled water!!

ricky thats alotta words that could be shortened to 1 "scam"200 years ago there were "snake oil salesman" who made a living selling useless garbage but making miraculous claims .in 20 years there will be a new term used. "hair wax salesman" it will have the same meaning someone who sells you stuff you dint want or need by convincing you you do want and need it.
