I am no longer a Wax Virgin, it would be third time at Strip last week. What is Strip all about? They sure know how to make things sound funky, but in fact, Strip is really a hair removal salon and they are all about hygiene. Their hygiene level is like better than any types of salons out there.
Firstly, when you go to any salon or spa, you will see this type of bed with a towel over it, and then there will be another towel to cover your body. I am actually not sure if spas I visited actually wash all the towels for every customer or not, especially the one covering on top of you that is not really used for wiping anything. Well, you can be assured at Strip that every towel is washed after every use. So no two-timing towels at Strip.
Secondly, Strip have made this giant hygiene packs, and they are actually filled with your personal disposable razor, cotton buds, wooden spatula, latex gloves, cotton pads etc. to ensure that all these things will not be reused on another person. After all, waxing is such a personal and delicate affair, who wants your razor to have touched another woman? It’s outrageous to even think about it.
According to this article on keeping your skin young by Strip, all the therapists will wear gloves, and not any gloves, only the latex gloves that is taken from your own personal hygiene pack, means they change gloves for every customer. This is so good to know. I remember having a dentist that do not use gloves and he puts his hands into my mouth! Freak out moment! Can you imagine what those hands have touched, even if they sanitize? Do you know what is the single most dirty thing in the world that you constantly touch? Your handphone of course, so just imagine that your therapist played the handphone in the toilet and then come out and answer her Whatsapp before touching you with her bare hands…horror of horrors. Bacteria laden hands will transfer more bacteria to your most private areas! Then there’s that wooden spatula, at Strip there is no double dipping allowed. What is yours is used one time in the wax and it will not be dipped back a second time. You might not get the same hygiene treatment in another waxing place, I can’t assure you of that.
Thanks to Strip Malaysia for a wonderful time cleaning us up at Strip. We girls get to choose where we want to get waxed for the afternoon. I chose to do just my half arms again as the last time I waxed it was some time ago and I was getting hairy again! Sometimes, waxing is not just about how you look as most of the time, it is in places that nobody can see but yourself. It is all about feeling confident in your own skin. Whether you love it hairy or hairless, it is really your choice, but make the choice you are most comfortable with and you will find yourself standing tall and confident in everything you do.
It’s always more fun when girls do things together.
