Methods of body grooming
When it comes to hair on the face and body, there now exists much variation in how and what a man will groom. It’s a personal choice and very individual.
Shaving is the most commonly used hair removal technique. However, shaving is also the most temporary hair removal method since shaving cuts hair at the surface of the skin instead of removing hair by its Follicles.
Electric Trimmer allow you to shorten your hair in certain body areas instead of getting rid of all of it.
Waxing involves heated wax that is applied in the direction of Hair Growth over the skin. Hair becomes embedded in the wax as it cools and then quickly pulled off by a cloth or paper strip.
Sugaring is similar to waxing, except that sugaring does not always require strips and it’s applied against the hair and removed with the hair for less breakage and damage to hair follicles. Sugar is not hot and there is no need to ever let it cool. By removing the hair in the earliest growth stage (anagen) sugar will help diminish regrowth by letting the follicles naturally shrink.
Plucking hair with tweezers is an effective way to remove hair but can be very time-consuming. The hair shaft must be long enough to grasp with tweezers.
Electrolysis involves inserting a fine needle into the hair follicle and applying an electric current to the follicle root. This procedure burns the hair root, theoretically preventing it from producing more hair.
Laser Treatment approved by the U.S. Food And Drug Administration involves a Laser Beam basically killing the hair follicles. Results depend on Skin Pigmentation and color of hair.
Depilatories use a chemical called Thioglycolte mixed with Sodium Hydroxide or Calcium Hydroxide to literally melt the hair away.
