GiGi wax is used in salons and at home for removing unwanted body hair. The wax is usually heated using a GiGi wax warmer, but this can be a time-consuming process. Wax typically takes 20 to 30 minutes to warm completely, so if you are in a hurry, you can use a microwave to warm your wax. The primary disadvantage of warming wax without a GiGi wax warmer is that the wax will cool very quickly, so it is important to use the wax as soon as you are done warming it.

Skill level:

Things you need

  • Microwave-safe container or bowl
  • Spoon
  • Paper towel
  • Wooden stirrer

  1. 1

    If you are using regular GiGi wax, use a spoon to scoop a small amount of wax into a microwave-safe bowl or container. Regular GiGi wax comes in a metal container, which is unsafe to microwave. The wax will be very difficult to remove from the bowl once warmed, so choose a container you can throw away when you are finished with it. If you are using Microwavable GiGi wax, you can skip this step.

  2. 2

    Place the container in the microwave. If it does not have a lid, cover the container with a paper towel to prevent any wax from bubbling out.

  3. 3

    Microwave GiGi wax for 15 to 30 seconds.

  4. 4

    Remove the wax from the microwave. Open the lid and use a wooden wax stirrer to stir the wax.

  5. 5

    Place the wax back inside the microwave for another 15 to 30 seconds.

  6. 6

    Carefully remove the wax from the microwave. It should be quite warm but not hot. Stir with a wooden wax stick to test the heat. If necessary, microwave again until the wax is thoroughly warmed.

Tips and warnings

  • You can buy wooden wax stirrers at any store that sells GiGi wax. If you do not have a wax stirrer, you can substitute a wooden Popsicle stick.
