Unwanted hair is a major problem for both men and women and they try different methods to remove it. Unwanted hair on face, chin, and upper lips are embarrassing especially for women, and hairy body is considered as less feminine in most of the cultures and societies. There are lots of hair removal techniques and methods available today.

Most of the people search for long-lasting, least hurting and least expensive methods to chuck out unwanted hair. Below are listed some of the most popular hair removal methods.

Shaving

Shaving is the most popular hair removal method and probably the oldest. This simple technique of removing unwanted hair is more popular among men in getting rid of facial hair. Some women resort to shaving to remove unwanted hair from legs, underarms and bikini area. Since hair is cut off with a sharp razor at the skin level, re-growth of hair will be fast. You need to use rich moisturizing cream to enable razor to slide over your skin easily. Shaving is cheap compared to other hair removal methods and requires minimal time. Shaving may sometimes cause in-grown hair or razor bumps, which can be painful.

Hair removal creams

Hair removal creams help in removing hair in a painless manner. The depilatory cream should be applied on the required body parts in the direction of hair growth. After 15-20 minutes, the cream should be removed using a damp cloth or spatula pulling it to the opposite direction of hair growth. This method will give instant softness and glow to your skin. But just like shaving, hair will grow back after 3-4 days. Most of the creams contain harmful chemicals that dissolve the hair follicles, and hence may be irritating to the skin.

Waxing

Waxing is one of the most popular hair removal techniques. Since hair is removed from the roots, it causes considerable amount of pain, which can be frightful for many people. But experience shows that the person will feel the pain only in the first attempt. When you think about having a hair-free boy for at least 2-4 weeks, pain should cause less concern. Waxing involves application of a sticky substance or sugar wax to the skin in the direction of hair growth. A dry cloth will be pressed firmly on top of the application, and will be pulled off briskly in the opposite direction of hair growth. The cloth will pull the wax along with hair from the root. The best advantage of waxing is that you can cover large portion at one stripping and hair will grow back less coarsely. Professional waxing may be expensive. It is better to try it yourself in the privacy of your home. Beware not to burn your skin in the case of hot waxes.

Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal is one of the permanent hair removal techniques but may not be affordable for many. This technique offers only 80% reduction in hair growth, and probably less in some people. This method is less painful than waxing and more painful than shaving. Laser technique removes hair by obliterating hair follicles by sending energy. It should be done by an expert laser technician to get the desired results.

Electrolysis

This most widely available hair removal method involves destroying hair follicles by passing electricity down to the hair roots. Using a magnifying glass, small needle will be placed in the root of hair. Electricity will be passed onto the needle to destroy hair cells. Electrolysis is a time consuming method as it wipes out one hair at a time. Multiple treatments are required to cover all the hair and may also cause discoloration.

Other popular hair removal methods are plucking, tweezing and threading, which are the simplest and cheapest. These methods are often used to shape eyebrows and clear chin and upper lips.

Some hair removal methods are not suitable for certain body parts and skin tones. Before opting for a particular hair removal technique, verify which method will work better for you.
