Hair Removal : Removing Thicker Hair

Many women would pay through the nose for a thick mane of hair on their head. But when it comes to body hair, it can be a different story altogether. Here is a look at why we are all different when it comes to our body hair, and Veet® has provided some hair removal solutions that might just get to the root of the problem.

A Common Cosmetic Concern

The first thing you should know is that the appearance of thicker, darker body hair is a common scenario, even for women. As with many other physical traits, heredity and ethnicity can play a role in the thickness and colour of someone’s body hair. On top of this, the nature of our body hair can also be affected by hormone levels leading to differences between men and women, and from one individual to the next.

A Convenient Solution

If you are uncomfortable about the appearance of thick body hair, even temporary solutions such as shaving and convenient Veet® depilatory cream products can offer effective, and immediate results. Both of these methods can be incorporated easily into your grooming routine, even while taking a shower. However, due to the nature of thicker body hair, depilatory creams could be the more ideal solution. Because shaving cuts directly across the thick hair, regrowth can appear quite coarse and brittle. Depilatory creams, on the other hand, dissolve the hair just at the skin’s surface, giving even the thickest hairs a smoothed tip, and making regrowth less visible for longer periods of time.

Getting to the Root

Worrying about hair removal every other day might not be ideal for everyone. In this scenario, you may wish to look into waxing, which is just as effective on thick hair as it is on finer body hair. There are many steps you can take to make waxing as pain-free as possible. Choosing a hot wax, such as Veet® Hot Sugar Natural Inspirations™. Wax, is a good place to start. Hot waxes open up the skin’s pore more effectively, making hair removal less painful when compared to cold wax methods. Exfoliating beforehand helps to ensure that the wax gets a firm grasp of each hair, avoiding any dead skin in the process. It is also very important to hold the skin tight while you are pulling away the wax, making sure to work against the direction of growth.

Taming unwanted body hair is part of many people’s beauty routines. But when it comes to tackling areas of thicker hair, this can be an embarrassing grooming challenge. Luckily, there are a number of solutions that Veet® can provide to help easy your journey of hair removal.
