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.

Re: Nair vs waxing

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.

Re: Nair vs waxing

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

Re: Nair vs waxing

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

Never done waxing, I'm stuck with razor.

Re: Nair vs waxing

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.

Re: Nair vs waxing

I wax at home. I first thought i could teach my DH to do it but after doing it myself first i realized he could very easily screw it up. ACK! And yes....you can go wrong with a razor!

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.

Hook me up a new revolution, cause this one is a lie. Sat around laughing and watched the last one die.

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.

Re: Nair vs waxing

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
