Body hair, everybody has it, but not everybody wants it. Let’s go over the different techniques of removing body hair and then determine which one is best for you.
This one surprisingly doesn’t hurt the most. If you’ve never waxed before, you’ll probably be more shocked at the heat of the wax as opposed to the pain of having your hair ripped out of your follicles. Waxing is fantastic for those who want to stop their hair from growing back in as quickly as shaving would. Because you’re removing the hair from the roots, what’ll be happening is that you’re ripping out the hairs alongside sometimes the follicles.
Over time, waxing can actually cause permanent changes such that hair won’t grow back in some spots where there used to be hair. Shaving is also nice because depending on how much hair you have, you only really need to go in and get yourself waxed again once very 3-4 weeks. Although it’s painful, the effects are the most long lasting, unless you want to explore laser.
We don’t recommend that you go and pluck out every single one of your hairs. Not only is this the most painful method because you’ll be feeling the pain multiple times and at specific spots, but because this isn’t efficient either. Plucking is perfect for when you have a stray or rogue hair here and there that you need to get rid of. It’s not the appropriate choice for a batch job.
This option is typically pain-free (unless you end up cutting yourself), but the results don’t last as long. Depending on how quickly your hair grows back, you might have to shave every single day. In fact, we’ve heard that some men even shave twice a day. Shaving is efficient because it’s also relatively quick and can be finished in less time and with less equipment than waxing requires.
