Sugar Wax For Hair Removal

Here’s a simple recipe for homemade sugar wax for hair removal:


  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup water


  1. Combine Ingredients: In a saucepan, mix together the granulated sugar, lemon juice, and water.
  2. Heat the Mixture: Place the saucepan over medium heat and stir continuously until the sugar dissolves completely.
  3. Bring to Boil: Once the sugar has dissolved, increase the heat slightly and bring the mixture to a boil. Be sure to stir frequently to prevent burning.
  4. Reduce Heat: Once the mixture reaches a boil, reduce the heat to medium-low. Allow it to simmer for about 10-15 minutes, or until it turns a golden amber color. Keep a close eye on it to avoid overcooking.
  5. Check Consistency: To test if the wax is ready, drop a small amount into a bowl of cold water. It should form a pliable ball that doesn’t dissolve in the water. If it’s too runny, continue simmering; if it’s too hard, add a bit of water and simmer for a few more minutes.
  6. Cool the Wax: Once the desired consistency is reached, remove the saucepan from the heat and allow the wax to cool slightly. It should still be warm but not too hot to handle.
  7. Transfer to Container: Carefully pour the warm wax into a heatproof container or jar. Let it cool completely before using.
  8. Apply and Remove: To use the sugar wax, spread a thin layer onto clean, dry skin in the direction of hair growth. Place a cloth strip over the wax and smooth it down firmly. Quickly pull the strip off in the opposite direction of hair growth, parallel to the skin, to remove the hair.
  9. Repeat as Needed: You can reheat the wax as needed in the microwave or a double boiler to maintain its consistency for continued use.
