If the paste spreads, cook further. And if it turns into droplets, turn off the oven. The finished paste is stored in the refrigerator in a sealed container. For the procedure, it is enough to pinch a small lump, stretch it, apply it on the skin against hair growth, and roll down, on the contrary - on growth. A sugar ball will collect all the hairs and pull it out with a root!
