Back Hair removal?

Summer is coming whats the best way to get rid of back hair? Nair? I shaved it last summer but now I have acne/ingrown hairs. Do not want to wax it.

Re: Back Hair removal?

Temporary hair removal includes, cutting (shaving, trimming), depilatories (Nair,etc.) and epilating (waxing, tweezing, threading). Permanent methods are laser hair removal and electrolysis.

All of the above methods have their pros and cons. You should not have any ingrown hairs remaining from last summer. Have you been exfoliating? Shaving doesn't cause acne. If you had some infected follicles, those could have resembled acne.

Nair and other depilatories are caustic, so be careful and follow the instructions to the tee.

Why are you opposed to waxing? You'll stay smooth longer if you have your back waxed.

Re: Back Hair removal?

I'm not personally fond of depilatories. I've gotten burned even though I didn't leave it on as long as was recommended.

I wasn't suggesting that you wax your own back. Have a professional wax it. Much safer and better results.
