Waxing Scientific

The authors in the study shaved one leg and waxed the other. Then they watched the hair growth over 9 days. You can clearly see that the waxed side has much less hair than the shaved. I suppose we all knew that though. But The Beauty Brains always like to give a little publicity to real science being done in the cosmetic industry.
