Good For Hygiene Reasons Would Not Recommend Anything Else.
I personally found it a little bit tricky to use at first - but then again I was the only therapist in the salon, so had no demos or anything just had to work it out with a dvd and this site for company! But now its second nature. As I have said before I dont think its particularly economical, but if you're a clumsy oaf like me it will suit you!i went to a beauty conference yesterday and there was a demo of PHD waxing and it looked fab, i think i'm gunna change to that system as it sounds so much more hygenic
Yes the hive system allows the wax to flow back into the cartdridge. As far as I know the phd system is the only one that doesnt. I have a jpod (mini phd) which another beautiful geek sold to me, however new they are only about 30, which is quite reasonable really.I have been using the egg pot tubes since I purchased them from the show. They look similar but they don't have a way of preventing the wax from flowing back into the tube. The only way I have thought of resolving this is to run some wax onto a strip after contact with the clients skin (a lot of wastage though) or to keep the tube for use only on that client?
I thought about the hive roller system too but surely the used wax is allowed to flow back into the cartridge this way too?
The jpod version does have an on/off switch, however you're right the bigger unit does not! I tend to keep mine at about 8, temp that is. havent tried the new waxes out yet but have seeon good reviews on them so far!!Ellisons haven't quite got their act together with guys phoning up having purchased the PhD system and wish to use their training voucher. At least they hadn't when I spoke to them about waxing training last year. Very dissappointing really.
At the moment I use the PhD system, it was what I was trained in - we very quickly brushed over Pot & Spatula. Its good and effective at what it does, but i'm now wanting to try out traditional waxing to see how it compares and how the costs compare too. I find keeping the wax temp good a bit tricky and get really annoyed by the fact the unit doesn't have that most vital of features - an on off switch.
Saying that the new Natural waxes are very nice to work with and work well on my male clients.
