How to Use Zip Wax to Remove All the Scalp Hair & Make You Bald

by Susan Reynolds

Having a cleanly bald head is difficult to accomplish with a razor alone, which is why many people prefer wax. Hard wax will remove all the scalp hair, make you bald, and leave you with smooth skin for weeks. Other forms of waxing usually aren't as effective on the scalp as using hard wax, because the hairs are thick and have a tight grip at the root. The end results of using Zip Wax will last for quite a while, and you will enjoy having no itchy stubble or shadow on your scalp.

Items you will need

  • Zip Wax
  • Clippers
  • Double boiler
  • Butter knife
  • Cloth strips

Wax the Scalp

Step 1

Prep your scalp by clipping the hair very short, no more than a quarter of an inch long. This will reduce the pain factor and help the wax completely grip the hairs.

Step 2

Melt the Zip Wax by either immersing it in hot water if it's in a tube, or using a double boiler if it comes in a block of wax. You can make a double boiler by placing a pot on top of a pot of boiling water. Place the wax in the top pot until it melts completely.

Step 3

Let the wax cool slightly, so it is not burning hot. Take a dull butter knife and spread the wax over your scalp and cover all the hairs as best you can.

Step 4

Place cloth strips on top of your scalp until it sticks to the wax. Let the wax cool and harden.

Step 5

Hold one end of a cloth strip and pull it very quickly to remove the hair. It should remove both the wax and hair at the same time. If you miss any spots, simply re-melt the wax and repeat the procedure.

Tips

  • You can use lidocaine cream on your scalp for pain relief, but test a patch beforehand to make sure you aren't allergic.

Warnings

  • Don't put burning hot wax on your scalp, or you could be injured.
