FIVE DIFFERENT HAIR REMOVAL METHODS
SHAVING - most common and widely used. Hair re-growth is rapid. Shaving in sensitive areas can cause bumping. This usually happens when the end of the hair follicle is cut off bluntly. The blunt edge has to force itself through a fine pore, which is designed for the entry of an almost invisible fine tip of hair. Forcing a blunt edge through a fine pore can cause irritation in the form of a papule or bump. Another shortcoming of shaving is that in some cases the fine pieces of cut hair fall back into the now empty shaft, causing an infection in the form of a pustule. If a hair follicle grows out and curls back into the skin (pseudofolliculitis), shaving is the most irritating. This must be removed with a sharp blade. A sharp blade removes not only hair but also dead skin cells. The daily removal of dead skin cells can break down the skin barrier, causing sensitivity in some people.
TWEEZING - should be used for 1 or 2 hairs. Tweezing too many hairs at a time increases the chance of breaking the hair below the skin's surface. Breaking the hair in the hair shaft will cause rapid re-growth and irritation from the blunt tip.
CHEMICAL DEPILA TORY-are available in the form of cream, paste or powder. The hair is removed when the depilatory solution is washed away from the skin. This method of hair removal results in rapid re-growth and the loss of the skin's barrier. The skin becomes irritated and sensitive when a second chemical solution is applied. It makes sense that a chemical that can dissolve hard  keratin could be too strong for the average skin. Most common complaints are that a C. D. leaves chemical bums; tenderness and small cysts, so when you need to reapply you cannot always do so.
ELECTROLYSIS - the papilla, which supplies nourishment to the hair, is destroyed. An electrolysis practitioner should be certified and well trained before practicing hair removal with electricity. The three methods are galvanic, short wave and the blend method. Electrolysis seems to be a good choice for hair removal, but certain factors should be considered. First, it is a very uncomfortable procedure. It could take one to three years or longer to permanently destroy the hair from large areas. The cost of electrolysis can be quite high. 

WAXING (PHYSICAL DEPILATORY} - is the most accepted means of hair removal. The benefits of depilatory waxing are many. First, it is ideal for any size area. It is highly recommended for sensitive and delicate areas. The hair comes back in softer and less of it. Waxing is easy, convenient and quick. The costs of hair removal services are reasonable and affordable for every client.
