Nair - March 5th 2011, 06:51 AM

Hey,

It's getting a bit tiring shaving the hair down there, but I can't stand having hair down there, so I'm looking into other options.
I've thought about waxing, but it's pretty expensive. Laser hair removal is also really expensive.

Has anyone used Nair to remove hair down there? I got a container of Nair for hair down there and I'm wondering how much of your hair down there it can be used on. Is it just for the bikini line or what?

Any tips on using Nair for removing hair down there?

I've used it before. It REALLY stinks. Like actually. But if you're okay with the stinkiness, then go ahead. What I do is just slather it on wherever you wanna get rid of hair, and wait about five minutes. Depending on the thickness of the hair, you might need to leave it on for longer. I'm not sure what kind of Nair you have, but if you have sensitive skin then make sure it's not gonna irritate you. Also, do they make different types of depilatory creams for your bikini area? Read the container and see what it says. I stopped using Nair a long time ago, but I never tried it on my bikini line. Good luck!

Re: Nair - March 5th 2011, 02:19 PM

hello,
i tried using nair "down there" and it didn't work out too great. i used the sensative skin kind. it didn't do a job of taking the hair off and it does smell awful. i think the hair was too thick for the creme to remove...

Everyone is different as to how effective it is, Nair does have a very repugnant smell to it, but it has always worked well for my hair removal, as said, the thicker the hair the lnoger you want to leave it on for, the bottle will give you proper directions.

I cannot stand Nair.
That's me personally, though. My skin is EXTREMELY sensitive. I used it years back and it burnt my skin horribly.

I've been looking into other options as well. Recently I waxed my legs with a home kit. It works amazingly, but it sucks doing it yourself, especially because its painful and can be messy if you don't know what you're doing. Doing it at a spa will be even more expensive. At home kit cost me like $12 bucks at Target.

Okay so I just tried Nair bikini creme and I was very unimpressed with the results.

Melanie- I tried the leg wax home kit but the wax was all messy and it somehow got all over the microwave. I may just try to get a professional wax.

Nair doesn't really do a lot for hair removal down there because you're often left with stubble. :/

Re: Nair - March 8th 2011, 12:58 PM

I highly discourage using Nair. Although when dance season comes I have to use it EVERY other night. 1. It makes my skin red and blotchy 2. It only leaves stubble, not smoothness 3. Hair grows back into those awful red bumps of ingrown hairs. Two words: super. painful.
So, try something else!

I use Veet because Nair gives me a horrible chemical burn. Veet worked decently for me though; I only had to use a razor a little bit to clean up what was left behind.

Re: Nair - March 9th 2011, 07:05 PM

Aww, I'm sorry to hear that, Kitty!

I used Nair for my legs once; it left a very bad chemical burn and didn't even get rid of so much as 50% of the hair. (I had to wear long pants for a week afterward because I couldn't shave off the rest-- the chemical burn hurt too much and was very red.) I can't imagine it would be much better for my bikini line.

Perhaps try getting a really good, rechargeable trimmer so that shaving is easier and faster? (If you don't already have one.)

Seems like the nair bashing is common ... I hate it too!!
As for going to a professional waxer, it can be expensive but you only need to go every month or so and once you've gone a few times the hair grows back thinner and slower so you won't need it as often

Thanks haha. I didn't get a chemical burn thankfully.

Well, wouldn't a rechargeable trimmer only remove the hair at the surface? I want to remove the hair to where I'll be smooth for at least a month or so.

I'll probably need to to suck it up and just endure through the Hollywood wax.

Yikes, I hate Nair... TBH I think shaving is the cheapest, quickest way to go... personally I only have to shave every few days. I've heard that rubbing deodorant on afterwards can make the hair grow back slower, and with less ingrown hairs.

Hahaha! I'd definately advise sucking it up ... maybe not a Hollywood on your first wax though? Go for a brazilian at most I'd say ... It hurts less the more often you have then, and those two are definately the most painful. (The pain does go away after like ten seconds but it's just advice I've been given by waxers : )

Unfortunately, I don't know of any others options - but I would not recommend Nair. It gives a lot of people allergic reactions, and burns if you leave it on too long. I personally find it messy and definitely smelly. Ugh. It smells terrible.

Good luck finding other options!

Yeah, you'd still need to shave. I was only suggesting it because a really good trimmer makes shaving faster and less annoying. (at least in my experience.)

You're probably not going to get a stubble-free month from an at-home treatment, so yeah. You may just have to go Brazilian.

Good luck!

I didn't have any bad reactions and it didn't smell that bad. But it just didn't work well.

Thanks haha.

I also had an allergic reaction, but to all the cream hair removers. :/ It burns my skin so bad that I literally bleed. Definitely do a test patch if you're going to try it!

Re: Nair - March 23rd 2011, 09:51 PM

I've never used it myself, but from everyone I've talked to, they said it burned whatever area they used. I find a razor works just fine. and if normal razors bug your skin down there, they do make special razors for the "hair down there"

Maybe that will help.” Harvey Milk, 1978

Alicia- I tried it and it didn't burn or anything, but it didn't fully remove the hair.

Summer- I may just wax.

Yeah, Nair is rubbish! It doesn't give me a rash but it also doesn't do it's job, you're still left with Mr Stubble! Though I did tksu recently hear me something called Sugaring . . . The beautitian makes a paste out of sugar, lemon juice and water and applies it on the gigs and when it's dry FLICKS IT OFF! Apparantly is is virtually painless and does what wax does. You can make it at home. Just Google it ^_^

I have never heard of this. I am definately going to look this up.

And I've used Veet before, it's soooo much better than Nair. I'm not comfortable with going to get a professional wax "down there", but if you are fine with it its quick but its also costly. I also have wax that I got from Walmart. It doesn't have to be microwaved. It comes in strips with plastic over it and all you do is rub it between your hands to warm it up and peel the plastic apart. It works so well, I highly recommend it. It's only like $5

I tried waxing strips for my bikini area and ouch, my skin is still red even though I did it hours ago and I bled a bit. Bad idea!

I may try sugaring.

Nicole- Do Veet waxing strips leave redness and bleeding? Keep in mind I want to remove the hair from the whole front area since I can shave the rest with no problems.

The waxing strips aren't made by veet. I have used veet and it didn't burn me but it's different with every person and it leaves very little stubble and whatever it does leave is easy to touch up with a shaver. The wax strips do leave red and it stings for a little but it doesn't make me bleed. Once again it's different with every person.
