Summer hair removal: Which method is the cheapest and most effective?
16 April 2013A blogger has looked at the various methods of hair removal to help women find the option that is best for them. In an article for US publication Gambit, Kat Stromquist explained that for those looking for a permanent solution to hair removal, laser treatments are the best option. Each session gets rid of 10 to 15 per cent of hair, meaning patients usually need more than one session to achieve the desired effects. However, once completed it is unlikely people will need further treatment. Alternatively, Ms Stromquist noted waxing is a good alternative as it lasts longer than shaving. Leslie Labruzza of Bombshell Waxing in the US explained people notice the best results when they wax continuously for two years without shaving in between. If neither of these appeal, the author discussed shaving or the use of depilatory creams, which make a good alternative to razors in sensitive areas. Use short strokes without too much razor pressure to avoid cuts and skin damage. Shaving gels, creams and even ordinary conditioner can act as a protective barrier between the razor and your skin, Ms Stromquist stated.
