Unwanted Male Body Hair

Unwanted Male Body Hair

These days men are becoming increasingly conscious of carrying a well groomed look. People working in corporate sector, IT and multinationals cannot afford to have their well groomed look compromised by unwanted body hair.

It is a primitive concept that shaving is the only option available for men to remove body hair. Before we get in to understand various methods of hair removal available.

Let us first understand the different types of hair:

Vellus :

Vellus hair is soft and short and is replaced with thicker hair (Terminal hair) during puberty in certain body parts. Terminal hair structure is different from that of vellus hair. It's stronger and longer.

Terminal :

Rough in texture, dark and long. In females, terminal hair is found only in the armpits and the pubic area on the other hand in men, it is also found on the face, chest, legs, back and sometimes even on the shoulders.

Q) What are the various techniques of getting hair removal in men?


Shaving :

Most straightforward but also the more repetitive as the shaved area grows hair in few days and the process has to be repeated.

Male Threading:

Applicable for certain areas like nose, chin, eyebrows and cheeks. Done using a thread again this is not permanent and is very painful. But this is inexpensive way to keep certain parts of the face groomed.

Hair Removal Cream for Men:

There are many over the counter cream formulations for hair removal. The down side is the process is not permanent, there is a strong odour associated and there can be instances of redness and burning.

Waxing for Men:

Longer lasting though painful process. In the long run waxing proves to be very expensive and also time consuming. Needless to mention the painful sessions..Ouch!!
