Hair Removal Guide

Welcome to the wild word of Hair Removal.
This site was designed as a tool for anyone looking to learn more about the different types of hair removal, and how to perform them.


Hair Bleaching

Bleaching doesn't actually remove hair, but lightens it to make it lighter and less noticable.
Specially designed bleaches are available for the face, arms, and legs. Take care when using bleach to keep it away from your eyes, do not use it on your eyelashes. Never prepare with metal dishes or instruments, and do not combine mixture untill ready to use it.

It's a good idea to perform a patch test before using bleach.
Wash and dry the area thoroughly. Prepare bleach according to packaged instructions.
Using provided applicator, apply bleach to desired area. Do not rub in, coat thickly like icing a cake. Make sure hair is covered completely.
As bleaching times vary from person to person, wait 10 minutes and wash off a small corner to see if hair is acceptably lightened. If it isn't, reapply some fresh bleach and wait 5 more minutes.
Afterwards, wash off bleach with cool clean water and pat dry. Wash off applicator and any other equipment, and throw away any extra bleach.

Bleaching is painless, and fairly cheap at $5 to $8 for one box of bleach. When you take into consideration that one application lasts 2 to 6 weeks that's pretty substantial.
However, since bleaching is not technically a form of hair removal it is not always practical. If your hair is thick, bleaching it may not make enough of a difference to be worth it.
Also if your hair is coarse bleaching will be a poor choice for you, as the chemical agents in bleach cause hair to become brittle and stand up.
Bleaching can be a good option particularly for the sensitive upper lip where plucking, threading and waxing are painful, and shaving isn't practicle for soft fine hair. For this reason it can be a good option if your hair is fine and you've had bad luck with other methods.
