Everyone faces the hair removal process some time or the other in life. There are various categories of hair removal that depends on position (body, facial, bikini), type of removal (shaving, waxing, plucking) or the type of hair (terminal or vellum). If you know what type of hair you have, you will be able to choose the correct procedure to remove the hair.
Vellum hair that is fine, soft and short is generally found on women face, back or chest. The removal of such hair is discretionary, especially if your skin tone is darker that can make such hair more visible. Terminal hair that grows on your armpits, head, bikini zone and legs is darker, longer and coarser.
For removing vellum hair, the most recommended methods consist of plucking, laser hair removal or waxing. On the other hand, you can use waxing, shaving, depilatories, plucking, prescription treatment, electrolysis and laser to remove terminal hair. The selection of hair removal methods is based on your capability to bear pain, economic strength and the area that you desire to clean.
Though shaving is cheap, the effect will last only for a few days. Another main disadvantage is that unless your hair grows to a certain length, you won’t be able to shave it.
The effect of plucking lasts long and is suggested for small areas like chin, eyebrows and upper lip. Depilatories should be bought with care and can be used on any region that you choose. The effect of depilatories will stay for up to two weeks. The effect of waxing lasts long but the method is very painful. The skin of some people may develop inflammation, redness and bumps after waxing. However, these effects disappear soon.
Electrolysis is a permanent way of removing hair. It’s generally used for smaller regions like underarms, upper lip and eyebrows. Though laser hair removal is costly, the effect will last for at least 6 months and the procedure won’t cause you pain.
