Hair removal is a bit of a sore subject with most women. Myself included! There are so many different methods out there that it can seem like a minefield. How do you know which one is right for you? Some hurt, some leave rashes. Others are expensive or don’t last very long. Some people get so fed up that they have it all permanently lasered off. Have you ever looked into the different methods in detail, however? You might find that your perfect hair removal was right under your nose all along. Let’s take a look at the different types of hair removal and which one is right for you.
The most common way for women (and men) to remove hair is shaving. It just seems like the easiest method, when you can do it in the bath or shower. There are some downsides to shaving, however. The first is that it doesn’t last very long. To stay silky smooth, you’ll have to shave every couple of days. This can lead to it being quite expensive in the long run. Those with sensitive skin will also find that they get shaving rash. Not so nice along your bikini line! It’s easy and convenient, but is shaving really for you? Let’s take a look at some other methods.
Even the word makes me flinch a little. There’s no denying that waxing is one of the most painful forms of hair removal out there. Although, you do get used to it if you wax often. Some people worry that waxing is too expensive, but that all depends on how often you get it done. If you only need to wax once a month, then it probably works out cheaper than buy razor blades and shaving gel. If you have a high pain threshold, then this could be your perfect hair removal method. Just keep an eye out for ingrown hairs.
This is a relatively new type of technology and hair removal technique, but it’s been talked about a lot recently. It is where gentle pulses of heat are used almost to singe the hairs, in a pain-free way. If you read Beyond Talk's review of Radiancy's No No device, you’ll see what I mean. It thins the hair with continued use, so you should see a slower regrowth. This is handy for those who want a pain-free hair removal method that lasts. However, it can get quite pricey depending on which device you go for.
I spoke about epilating quite some time ago on my blog. This is where the hairs are plucked or pulled out really quickly, using an ingenious little machine. As I mentioned before, it does hurt. You’ll get a burning sensation a bit like waxing. However, it does last, and epilators can be fairly cheap to buy. Particularly as you don’t need to replace them as often as some devices. It all depends on how high your pain threshold is, yet again.
Which one do you think would work best for you? Do you have a preference or are you going to change it up a bit?
