Ingredients:
3 cups Sugar [I use organic cane sugar - as I get best results with it, and this recipe have not really worked with other types of sugar]
2 and 1/2 cups water
4 teaspoons lemon juice

Process:
1. Put all the ingredients in a heavy sauce pan and bring to boil [High].
2. Leave it at a rolling boil for about 2 minutes, and then back-off heat [so that it is still boiling but a calm one]
3. Watch for the color at this point - it should turn into light golden brown [approx. 25 minutes]
4. Next, lower the heat to simmer [The mixture should be simmering on this heat.]
5. Watch for the color at this point - it should turn into definite brown [approx. 20 minutes]
6. Take it off the heat immediately.
7. Let it calm down and cool a bit in a pan. Then pour it into a heavy container. After cooling it at room temperature ... spoon a piece, stretch it and twist it to pull off the hair. [Apply in opposite direction of hair, pull in the direction of hair]

It is better to start using the mixture next day ... else it might seem it has cooled down but truly it is not -- as you will see it will be really sticky and messy the day one ... paste heating much more quickly with body heat, than usual.

My 2 cents!

Hi badchc!

Thanks for sharing your recipe! What is the right temp for applying the paste? You mentioned that you should apply it the next day because it's too hot--do you simply leave it in the pot overnight on the stove? Do you do any "re-heating" before applying to the skin?

A lot of members have had bad experiences with long-term waxing--hairs return darker and coarser. What's your experience with repeated sugaring been like?

Regards,

smoothlover

Can we use brown sugar instead of the regular white sugar?

Yes, Light Brown Sugar works as well.

I apply the sugar-paste right out of the pot - no heating. Just make a small round roll in the hand and press it on the skin and pull it.

I apply it in the opposite direction of hair, and pull it in the direction of hair. I only use this on my upper arms.

Upper Arms - once 3 months

Till now, I have had a good experience with sugaring, it is waxing that I do not like as much, as I can see hair in a month.

If I remember correctly, the goal is to get the sugar in the "soft ball" stage. That means heating the sugar to about 240 deg F and removing it from the heat. the temperagure and stage of the sugar is important, not the color or cook time.

For more information about stages of sugar watch the food network- Emeril does a goos job explaining it. OR check wikipedia's article about candy here.

Hi guys!

I use 'Parissa Body Sugar'. Have anyone tryed?

I can't really see a difference from the regular wax. I only use it because it's washable and a lot easier to clean. Besides that it takes the some time than wax for the hair to grown.

Anyone else tryed Parissa sugar?

you mentioned this has decreased the frequency for hair removal, but do you feel like the hair has gotten lighter and less from sugaring than waxing? Waxing too has made my hair growth worse.
thanks.

I was wondering if someone knows the sugaring putty recipe that doesn't need Strips? You just spread it on your skin and rip off the hair with it. Any Ideas on how to make the sugaring recipe into a putty that works well, and doesn't need strips or heating? and can be used over and over again?


Here's a seller on ebay whos selling what I mean...
anyone know the recipe?
