Male Hair Removal - It's the "In" Thing Now

Feb 1, 2008
Male hair removal is now the trend. Men, like their female counterparts, are opting to get rid of hair for aesthetic reasons. Are you one of these men? The following are helpful tidbits on some of the means you could say adieu to your hirsute looks.

Techniques for Male Hair Removal

It entirely depends on which particular body area you want to tackle. For example, shaving could rid you of your beard and facial hair.

It's best to shave after a warm shower or bath. This is because tepid water softens hair and open up skin pores for effective shaving. Then, apply a shaving formula (gel, cream, lotion) for lubrication. If you're using an electric razor, you might not need to do the prior procedures.

Chest hair or hair at your back could necessitate a more specialized method. Waxing or use of depilatories could handle your chest and back areas. Dealing with your back, though, might be a little problematic. You could ask your partner to help you out, or visit a salon or clinic to do it for you.
Also, take caution when using depilatories as they cause allergic reactions. It's advisable for you to patch test first. Apply a small amount of the formula then watch for swelling, tenderness or redness. If such occurs, stop the procedure.

When your pubic area is concerned, shaving could be your best option especially if you're disinclined in exposing your privates to others. Waxing is not a recommended method for the male populace who's got low pain threshold. The scrotum is a highly sensitive area, ergo waxing is a no-no. Unless, of course, you could handle extreme pain.

Males tend to have more body hair than females. Why? The technical term for body hair is androgenic hair, derived from the word androgen. Androgens, or male hormones, are responsible for hair growth. Androgens are present in both the male and female; however, the male population generally has a higher level of these hormones. This is why men are predisposed to more hair growth.

Why Go Through Hair Removal?

Remember that undergoing this procedure does not diminish your masculinity. In fact, excessive hair could be a turn-off to most women thus getting rid of it could be a plus to your appeal.

A downy chest is yucky. Bushy eyebrows could scare some faint-hearted women. Hairy, albeit athletic-looking, legs could make some girl run faster than you could - heading towards the other direction, of course.

Definitely, you could go through the hair removal process if you feel your 'royal hairiness' negatively affects your confidence and physical appearance.
