Too much hair

Most of us have weekly, if not daily bouts with hair removal. Having unwanted hair can get annoying and even frustrating when you have so many different products available to get rid of it. But we are lucky too, because the tried and true method used long ago was pretty much just a razor and soap. Now though, you can’t turn around without a new product coming along that promises to get rid of unwanted hair. There are even outpatient cosmetic surgery type procedures that can get rid of that hair permanently. So who do you listen to and which product do you trust? Well, that is the question, and below are some most popular products.

If you are reading this then you most likely hate using shaving cream and razors to get the job done; well, you’re in luck.

Let’s begin with the products you can use at home that are temporary, starting with depilatory creams. These work by reacting with the protein structure of your hair, causing the hair to dissolve and be easily washed/wiped away. This product is used on the legs, underarms, and bikini line and is generally painless. They work quickly, are inexpensive, and last about 2 weeks. Next, if you are brave, you can wax. With this, a hot, sticky wax is applied and covered with a cloth strip

. You then quickly pull the strip off, taking the hair root and dead skin cells with it and is most of the time mildly painful. This usually lasts about 3-6 weeks, and can be applied pretty much anywhere; including lip, eyebrows, chin, and chest. And finally, there is the method of friction. With the friction method, a rough surface is used to buff away hair at the skin’s surface. The mitt usually has rough strips or a smoothing surface coated directly onto the mitt and can be used anywhere that you have unwanted hair.

This is probably the least used one though, do to the fact that results typically only last a few days. These listed products are only the tip of the iceberg, but are the most popular. So don’t be afraid to try something new, everyone’s body reacts differently and you may find a product that works exceptionally well for you but not for your friend.

You can find more information on cosmetic surgery procedures that can be done to get rid of hair for good. These are generally more pricey however and some of them take multiple visits, but you won’t have to fool around with monthly hair removal products. The two most popular methods are electrolysis and laser hair removal. Electrolysis is the permanent hair removal method that eliminates any hair and treats all skin types while being recognized by the FDA.

Electrolysis uses a minute amount of electricity that is gently applied to the base of the hair follicle destroying hair growth tissue, causing the hair follicle to be permanently eliminated. The second is laser hair removal, which requires several treatments for it to become permanent. In this method, a laser beam passes through the skin to individual hair follicles. The intense heat of the laser damages the hair follicle, which inhibits future hair growth. Both are effective hair removal procedures, but due to their cost and time should be researched before jumping into.

So whether your quest for hair removal is temporary or permanent, you’re in the age of technology. You have these products at your fingertips, and there is surely one that will work for you.
