Have you ever had hair wax that you could not use up and left as it was? Have you ever wondered if it is still usable or if you should throw it away? Many hair waxes do not have expiration dates on them, so if it has been some time since you opened it, you may wonder what to do with it. Here we introduce the expiration date of hair wax and how to store it well.
What is the expiration date of unopened hair wax?
According to the Japanese Pharmaceutical Affairs Law, hair wax is considered a cosmetic for the head and is classified as a hair conditioner. Only cosmetics that will change in quality within three years of manufacture are required to be labeled with an expiration date.
This means that hair wax with no expiration date label can be used safely for three years if it is unopened. However, depending on the storage method, the quality of the product may change, so it is better to use the purchased hair wax as soon as possible.
What is the expiration date of used hair wax?
Hair wax once opened. Since only a small amount is used at a time, it is often difficult to use it up and time goes by. Since most hair wax is basically used by scooping it with your fingers, it can be difficult to maintain a certain quality because it comes into contact with your fingers and air each time you use it.
To keep your hair beautiful, try to use up the opened hair wax in about six months if possible.
How to store hair wax well
So how should you store your opened hair wax? Below are some tips on how to store hair wax well.
Use with clean, dry hands
When using hair wax, scoop it out of the container with clean, dry hands. Wet or dirty hands can damage the quality of the hair wax. Hair wax that is directly applied to the hair should be kept clean, especially around the face and neck, as these areas are often in contact with hair.
After use, close the lid properly and store in a cool, dark place.
If the lid is not tightly closed, the hair wax may become hard. After opening the package, close the lid properly after each use and store in a cool, dark place out of direct sunlight to prevent deterioration of quality. Some people store skin care items such as lotion and serum in the refrigerator, but there is no need to store hair wax in the refrigerator.
With well-stored hair wax, you can have shiny, beautiful hair!
