Waxing is hair removal using a sticky substance that pulls on hair from the root. There are different kinds of wax and techniques used for each, for example, hard wax, cold wax, sugar wax, and many more.
Waxing kits are available in most beauty stores and pharmacies. It is best to follow the instructions as indicated in the box. As long as you adhere to the product instructions, waxing at home should be easy. And an added benefit, waxing delays hair growth for a longer period. So you can just do it every month or so.
Sugaring is a special form of waxing using a honey-like substance. Males and females alike have sworn by sugaring for home treatments. It brings the long-term benefits of waxing without the hassle of having to heat cold wax or looking for hard wax and enduring the pain of your hair ripping out.
Although it is not really much of a hair removal method, bleaching bodily or facial hair gets rid of the appearance of having hair in the first place. This is useful for dark-haired people who would prefer to just mask the appearance of hair by getting rid of the pigment instead.
Bleaching solutions are available in most retailers and are used similarly to box dye. It is recommended to try a skin patch test first as some have experienced slight irritation or allergy to some bleaching products.
If you are looking for a painless, yet affordable way of getting rid of hair, look to using depilatory creams. You apply the cream and leave it on for around 3 to 10 minutes, depending on what the packaging suggests. When you wipe it off, the hair goes along with it. Make sure to not exceed the time frame stated in the packaging, and do a patch test beforehand.
