Have you ever struggled with unwanted hair? Do not feel alone, most people at some point have as well. There are several solutions to this problem, I will be outlining some of them here and the procedures that come along with it and what to expect.
The most common way other than shaving the areas is waxing. Some of these you can do at home yourself with the correct supplies or you can pay to have a professional wax done. There are two types of wax, there is the “soft” wax and the hard “wax”. The soft is used on the larger areas of the body such as legs and the chest on men, this is used in conjunction with muslin strips or paper. The hard is used on the bikini area, underarms, and face area, no strips are used as this becomes hard and lifts the hair. This procedure is less painful than the strip method. This method is not permanent you will need to return and have the waxing done again as the hair grows back.
The other type of hair removal is with cream hair removers, there are a variety of these on the market. These can be easy to use but however you will want to make sure you are not allergic to chemicals that are used in the mixture. This article is the 101 of Hair Removal Cream for further reading.
