I am Brooke and I am a single woman. I am in my thirties and since the last 12 months I have tried several hair removal products. I wanted to find out a better product for me so that’s why I started trying different products available in the market. I am sharing my experience with you so that you can select the right product for yourself.
At first I started to remove my hairs by shaving. I used to shave all the parts like under arms, legs etc. I did this for several years but then I had to shave every day in order to keep the skin smooth. I could not bear the nicks and cuts anymore. I started to think about other options of hair removal.
I came to know about this method when I was in college. The college girls told me about this method but I do not have a high threshold for pain. I cannot bear the pain during waxing. Waxing efficiently removes hair but one has to bear pain while doing it. It is also very messy and sometimes have a bad smell also. So I decided not to remove my hairs with this method.
Hair Removal Cream:
In order to look for a much better option than shaving and waxing, I went to the local store to search for other available options for hair removal. In the store I found a cream for hair removal. The only thing that you have to do for removing hairs is to apply the cream on the part of the body from where you want to remove the hairs. Apply the cream and then wipe it. The hairs will be removed in few minutes. This was the product that I was looking for.
I bought the cream and used it. I applied it on my arms and then wiped it off after few minutes. The result was awesome.
This product had two disadvantages. One was that it had a bad smell but this can be tolerable as it has to be applied only for few minutes. The other disadvantage was that this product left the skin dried after using it. I tried to look for a better solution than this.
These are actually the electric hair pullers. I had seen them before also. I went to the store to buy it so that I can try it out. I was afraid of its trimmers so I didn’t try it in the beginning and placed it on my bathroom counter. After some time I decided to try it. At that time my hairs were fully grown. I shaved both my hairs but till then I was in tears. I must say that the epilators do hurt a lot. I used this only once and then I gave it to someone else for free.
Some better epilators might be available in the market but I did not try any other device after that bad experience.
Before doing any further experiments with the hair removal products, I decided to research about them and then trying them out. Electrolysis is also a method of hair removal and it removes the hair permanently. I had heard of its success so I decided to try it.
I researched about it online and I came to know that the home electrolysis products are also available. These include ultrasound, RF, etc but you have to use it carefully. It’s better to get it done from the professionals.
My friend was also looking for a better hair removal option. She decided to do the laser hair removal. We both took the appointments from the professionals. I took the appointment for electrolysis and she took the appointment for laser hair removal. We decided to compare the results at the end.
Electrolysis is an expensive procedure and not everyone can afford it. This is an extremely slow process. A trained person applies an electrical current with the help of a needle in each and every hair follicle. This current kills the hair and it is then removed with the help of tweezers.
This is a painful as well as a very long procedure. You have to come to the clinic a number of times in order to remove hairs from different parts of the body. This procedure is even worse than the epilators because it takes a longer time and is also painful. This is a permanent solution but you have to pay multiple visits. I never came for my second appointment.
As I mentioned before, my friend went for laser. Different laser treatments are available like IML, IPL, Ruby red etc. in all these procedures, laser is used to kill the hairs.
My friend had tried the electrolysis treatment in the past and she had felt the pain. She was very much satisfied with this process as it was pain free and it didn’t take a longer time. It was completed in few minutes.
The major drawback of this treatment is that it is very expensive and is not affordable by everyone. It cost around a thousand dollars. This treatment does not remove the hairs permanently so you will have to get it done again and again. This means that you will have to spend thousands of dollars each year. People, who can afford it, can undertake this treatment as it is pain free and is not time consuming. My friend is continuing this treatment but I decided to look for other treatment with far less cost.
Back to the drawing board:
I had come across different options for hair removal during this process of research. I looked back on my notes and tried to find out things that I have missed before. I reflected over my notes and I thought that what I liked about cream. The only thing that I did not like about the cream was its odor. So I decided to do some research.
I did some research and purchased hair removal cream of a different company. The new cream was very good. It did not have a bad odor and it left my skin smooth and silky.
I would advise you to do some research work before using any of the hair removal products.
