Getting wax stuck in your hair is painful and annoying, but grabbing the scissors is not the answer. Used properly, wax lifts away unwanted facial and body hair and even makes your skin feel softer. Wax is also an ingredient in hair extension glue used to attach artificial hair to your real hair. If you have the misfortune of discovering wax that has been left behind, you will need to remove it as painlessly as possible.

  1. 1

    Remove a piece of ice from your freezer. Rub the ice on the wax in your hair. As the wax gets brittle you can break it off.

  2. 2

    Rub baby oil on the wax. Rub the wax thoroughly to saturate it. The wax should slide off the hair.

  3. 3

    Apply heat by using a blow dryer to remove stubborn wax in your hair. Comb the wax away.

  1. 1

    Brush out the hair extensions with a bristled brush.

  2. 2

    Clip the hair up with alligator clips.

  3. 3

    Pull down the section that has the wax you want to remove. If you want to remove all wax extensions, then work one section at a time.

  4. 4

    Dip your fingers in the vegetable oil and rub it on the wax bond.

  5. 5

    Turn on your blow dryer and point the blow dryer at the bond. Heat up the bond until it becomes loose and malleable. Tug at the extension slightly until it pulls away.

  6. 6

    Comb the wax bond with a fine-tooth comb to remove the wax debris from your hair.
