Tips for Removing Thicker hair

While many people would gladly pay for some thick and luscious locks on their heads, unwanted body hair may be a completely different story.[1] As everyone’s body hair is unique, some may experience a range of fine to thick body hair that they choose to remove. In this blog, we’ll be looking at why body hair is different for everyone and various hair removal solutions for thicker hair that just might help you get to the root of your problem![1]

Common Cosmetic Concern

If you ever feel insecure about how thick and dark your body hairs are, just remember that you’re definitely not alone! Heredity and ethnicity play a huge role in the thickness and colour of our body hair.[1] Additionally, your hair is also affected by the level of hormones in our bodies.[1] In other words, the type of hair growth you experience is something that you aren’t really able to control.[1] On the bright side, there are a variety of effective methods for thick and coarse hair removal, right from the comfort of your own home.

Short-Term Solution

Fast solutions such as shaving and depilatory creams can easily be incorporated in your grooming routine to remove thick hair.[1] Unfortunately, though shaving may seem like a quick and easy solution, the regrowth can lead to brittle & coarse hair.[1] Alternatively, depilatory creams such as Veet® In-Shower Hair Removal Cream Silky Fresh ™ Legs & Body Sensitive Skin allows the hair to dissolve at the surface of the skin, making regrowth less visible for a shorter amount of time.[1] It is recommended to follow the instructions carefully and to do a patch test 24 hours before you do your full hair removal routine.

Getting to the Root

If you're looking for a longer lasting method for thick hair removal without worrying about regrowth, waxing might just be a better solution for you. With waxing, you won’t have to worry about regrowth for up to four weeks! For some, the worry commonly associated with waxing is pain. However, choosing a product such as Veet® Natural Inspirations™ Wax Strips Legs & Body All Skin Types , it comes equipped with simple steps to make it both pain-free and easy as possible.[1] Our tip is to exfoliate before waxing so the wax can get a firm grip of each hair and to prevent ingrown hairs.[1]

There is nothing to be embarrassed about when it comes to taming unwanted thicker body hairs! But luckily for us, and no matter what type of hair you have, Veet has a number of solutions that best suit your needs.[1] What Veet product will you choose?
