The Best Hair Removal Methods for Women
Although it’s something that we might not necessarily want to talk about, we all have areas of our body that has some hair on it that we’d personally prefer to do without; especially when we have an upcoming photo shoot or we want to wear a really pretty halter dress or pair of Capri shorts. The thing is, finding the kind of hair removal method that works best can sometimes be a tricky thing.
That’s why we wanted to provide you with a list of some of the best hair removal methods for women. Hopefully, with the information that we provide, you can pick the one that’s just right for you—and your body.
Shaving. Probably the most popular way to remove unwanted body hair is to shave it off. After all, you can get an entire pack of razors (and shaving cream) for under ten bucks. The advantage with this particular method is that it’s not only inexpensive, but it’s really quick to do. The disadvantage is that since it’s only removing the hair on the top layer of your skin, there’s a pretty good chance that you’ve feel stubble as early as the following day.
Waxing. Another favorite among many is waxing. This method is a bit more expensive (especially if you have it professionally done at a spa or salon), but the results can last for weeks on end. The main thing to be aware of with it is that it can tend to be pretty painful; although as you continue to do it and your hair grows thinner, it starts to become a bit more tolerable.
Threading. An ancient Middle Eastern hair removal technique that many women use, especially on their face is something that is known as threading. It is when someone (preferably a licensed aesthetician) takes a double thread of cotton and twists it around your individual hairs, pulling them out from the roots. This is something that a lot of women prefer over tweezing their eyebrows. You can usually get it done for between $25-50 at a spa or salon (there are even some mall kiosks that do them).
Epilator. Speaking of alternatives for tweezing, another favorite among many is using an epilator. That’s because rather than going through the trouble of removing one hair at a time, an epilator is able to remove several hairs at once. (If you would like to do more research on them, you can visit Epilator Central for more details.)
Laser Hair Removal. Finally, if you are looking for a way to semi-permanently remove the hair from your body, then something that you might want to consider is laser hair removal. Honestly, while it’s not as painful as waxing treatments, it does tend to be more uncomfortable than tweezing. The good news is that after a few 10-minute sessions, most people see an 80 percent reduction in hair growth. The main thing to keep in mind is that you should definitely consult with your dermatologist before having it done. That’s because it tends to work more effectively on dark hairs that are on light skin due to how the process targets the melatonin in it. And being that you’ll be paying between $100-200 each session, you need to make sure that you’re going to get the kind of results that you’re after.
