Thank You for the quick feedback. After my experience I much agree about the professional route! They were waxed at the salon (a bit too much!) and I have waxed one time since (a very small amount). I am hesitant to start over but will take the advice on removing the bands, wettingand avoiding further product. When she was waxing me I asked about oils... rosemary,tea tree etc. she scolded me! I believe in holisic and guess my trust in her obscene price made me sway my intuition. Thanks for the advice and I will post my babydreads when able to find a camera. Besides 'do my whole head' do you have advice/knowledge ofways tomaintain just a few?
