PostSubject: Wtf, Nair?   Tue Aug 19, 2008 10:17 am

I used it on my legs today. Left it on for the max amount of time (10 mins), washed it off..
a lot of hair came off, but some stayed.
But the hair that didn't wash off has been dissolved, cus if I try and get it off (rub, pull, whatever) it does come off.
So it's not like it didn't work on all of it, which I know happens to some people..
I can't shave it off cus it Is dissolved, it's not rooted down.. (I tried shaving it. Didn't work).
Fan bloody tastic. Maybe it's a good thing Cat hasn't called about swimming >_<

I've used it once before and didn't have this trouble.. maybe like one or two hairs but not a load.

I'm really put off using it again now. Is it really that bad to leave it on longer than ten mins? I could just wash it off really quickly if I get any itchiness at all couldn't I?

Yea I got some really bad burns from Nair too, it left me bleeding, and I only had it on for like 10-12 minutes.

We already have a topic on Nair and Veet, will merge in a bit cos I'm about to eat lunch. Razz

I find Veet to be superior because it actually gets ALL of the hair off of my skin in at least 6 minutes [which is the max time anyways, but you could leave it on for maybe 2 more minutes]. The formula is nice and thick, and if you apply it evenly, you'll get great results.

Nair has always been very irritating on my skin, so I don't use it anymore. My skin is extremely sensitive now, so I have to be careful with what I use. Sad

I don't get any itchiness/irritated skin or anything, just don't understand why some hairs have just sorta stayed in place even though they're dissolved.
I probably didn't apply it thick enough. See it was a little sample packet so I was worried I'd run out mid calf if I used too much : P

I haven't got enough of the sample left for one leg even, so I think I'll buy Veet soon. Maybe the one with the little "razor" thing, so the hair actually comes off!

Eh, the "razors" aren't that special. Usually if I try to use it, afterwards I'll use a towel to get anything I may have missed. The kind that you wear in the shower is really good, from what I've heard.

Ah, probably won't try the razor one then. Which one do you use?

have any of you heard of this stuff called Magic Powder? It's a hair removal cream, sort of like Nair and Veet but it was intended for black men's beards so it's like especially amazing on thick/coarse hair and in-growns..

i really need to try this out!! I've read up on it online and a lot of women use it on their nether regions if you know what i mean and underarms, etc, but i guess it would be fine on legs too..
anyway I'm going to try and get my hands on some because i hate nair/veet because i find the hair grows back too fast and this one should be good for that.

EXCITED.
