TO TRIM OR NOT TO TRIM: A COMPLETE GUIDE TO MANSCAPING
Thanks to the increasing acceptance of metro sexuality, body grooming and manscaping is no longer frowned upon. This means you no longer have to tame a forest of mane under your shirt (or anywhere else). Men are losing their hair, from their chest to their most secretive regions. However it is extremely important to know the line between looking like a caveman and looking like Justin Bieber. Before going wild with your razors and trimming off every sign of hair you have on your body, just consider going through these dos and don’ts.
4 WAYS TO REMOVE YOUR BODY HAIR
HERE ARE SOME OPTIONS YOU CAN CHOOSE FROM WHEN DECIDING TO REMOVE YOUR BODY HAIR.
Yes, waxing is the most painful option of all but the results are pretty impressive, and the post-wax results will normally last longer than any other method. However, in terms of at home hair removal, it isn’t the most practical solution particularly on your back, so if you are considering waxing better visit a salon.
Shaving is probably the simplest method and allows you to cover any area of your body in one go with just a razor and a shave product. But shaving certainly has some downsides; if you are not careful with your razors you have a good chance of cutting your skin here and there. However, if you are careful enough, shaving will prove to be a cost effective and efficient method of body hair removal.
Hair removal cream
If you can’t stand the thought of waxing, and shaving leaves you with cuts, nicks and razor burn, then hair removal creams are a great alternative. They work by applying your chosen removal cream across the selected area, and then leaving for 5-10 minutes, before removing. However, these kinds of products can be slightly harsh on sensitive skin and probably won’t give the best results for thick hair.
Well electric razors won’t give you the finishing as waxing does, but this can be a good option if you are a beginner. This is also the best method if you’ve got sensitive skin, or don’t want to take a razor to any tricky areas. The nature of these electrical hair removers means that they’re much safer and pretty much eradicate the possibility of any skin irritation.
DOES SHAVING MAKE YOUR HAIR GROW BACK THICKER?
A direct answer would be a no! Shaving will neither make your hair grow back thicker nor darker, nor will it make it grow any faster. It’s just that new growing prickly hair will be more noticeable, since it now has a blunt tip due to shaving. This may make your re-growth seem thicker than it was before, but your hair won’t actually be thicker than it was earlier. But the good part is that the new hair will be healthier and undamaged, because it has not been exposed to normal day-to-day wear and tear.
