Default Nair vs waxing

Which one lasts longer (before hair grows back). Waxing is such a big production but lasts so long. I cant remember how long nair lasted for me...havent used it in awhile.

Waxing lasts longer. I use nair on my young daughter because its safer and painless but it doesn't last that long. Couple weeks maybe? I just started using it on her so I haven't figured out how often it needs to be done yet.

Waxing lasts longer. Nair is cheaper though the lotion has a horrible smell to it.

Got a nasty chemical burn from Nair once, never used it again.

Never done waxing, I'm stuck with razor.

Well you can't go wrong with a razor.

Nair doesn't get the root, only just below the surface level which is why its smoother than shaving. Waxing if done properly should last longer, but lots of cheap places rush through it, have poor technique and ending up with a lot of breakage, in which case they don't get all the roots either. Also with waxing, first session misses all the new growth that is shorter so those roots will still be there right after too.

My ex was an esthetician, in case you're wondering how I know all this stuff.

I'm so glad I'm not a woman. LOL
There was a guy at work who shaves his head, he decided to try nair instead. He said his scalp bled for 3 hrs.

Really the razor is easy to work with and quick too. Well for me the wax was hard to use. So I pay to get my waxing done.

Thanks for the tip, Joe. My bald head will continue to be shaved.

When the hair grows back after waxing, don't you have to let it get to 1/4" before you can do it again? So the wax has something to hold onto?

an 1/8th inch can suffice
