Body hair is a normal part of the human body. They are found all over the body to allow us to trap heat and dirt on the skin. However, it can be unsightly to some. While it is absolutely normal, some prefer to remove unwanted body hair for aesthetic purposes. If you are looking for a permanent hair removal option, you have come to the right place.
Excessive body hair on women is known as hirsutism. This is when women have excessive hair growth, similar to men. This is due to a hormonal imbalance where these women have excess male hormones like testosterone. This causes them to have dark and coarse hair in areas like the face, chest, lower abdomen, inner thighs and back.
While there are many hair removal methods available such as shaving, waxing and threading, they sometimes cause side effects. If you do not shave your hair properly, they may cause ingrown hairs, which grow backwards toward the hair follicle. This can be even more difficult to remove.
Waxing is a great way to remove excess body hair from the root. However, hair removal techniques also matter. If done incorrectly, it can produce dry and strawberry skin. It is important to see if your skin suits waxing by doing a patch test and ensuring it does not harm the skin in the process.
