Hair Facts | Hair removal methods

Hair removal methods

Hair removal might be considered a "cosmetic" issue, but managing or removing unwanted hair can go beyond being a simple "cosmetic" problem. There are only few Hair Removal Methods.

Plucking | Tweezing Unwanted Hair

Plucking method for hair removal takes a while but it's effective for small amounts of unwanted hair.


It is quick method, but can lead to some reddness for a few hours after hair removal.

Nair (Hair Removal Cream)

It is a Hair Removal Cream, It's smelly and you run the risk of getting a chemical burn. Before using it test it on a small patch of skin on your arm or your leg first. If you have reaction then don't use it.

Electrolysis Removal

A small needle is inserted into the hair follicle, and electricity is passed through it for permanant hair removal.

Laser Hair Removal

Laser Hair Removal is expensive and you need between 3 and 8 treatments (each 1 month apart). It's good for large areas that would otherwise take too long to remove one hair at a time.


It is not used for Skin Hair Removal how ever it bleaches the unwanted hair so it is far less noticeable. But before applying make sure to test a patch on your arm or leg.

Threading Unwanted Hair

Threading involes rubbing two pieces of thread over the hairs and it pulls them out. It's basically the same thing as tweezing except some people find it easier (it would be a better idea to get it done at a salon).


This can cause stubble andor razor burn, but despite popular belief, it actually doesn't cause the hair to grow back thicker. So I prefer not to use the shaving method.
