Sometimes, the first thing a woman notices on a man is the hair on his chest. Most women love their men with a little hair on their chests, but a man who looks like he’s wearing a thick, black, woolen sweater when he takes his shirt off or has copious amounts of hair peeping out of his shirt is a complete turn off for any woman.
Chest hair is the hair that grows on the chest of human males; it usually grows in the region between the neck and the abdomen. Chest hair develops during and after the stages of puberty and is basically a secondary sex characteristic.
Chest hair removal can depend on a few things most notably the amount of hair to be removed, the desired length of time that you’d like the hair removed, the amount of money and time you have to spend on the hair removal and finally the goal of the hair removal. When we have dense hair on the chest and other body parts, it can cause bad odor, which will be insulting for the people who are around us and ourselves. We can get susceptible to skin infections through this.
The days of men showing off their big hairy chests have come and gone. Many men have traded in their combs for clippers as chest hair removal has become a growing trend. Advertising and American culture makes it apparent that bare-chested men are sexier and more desirable. Though the main reasons for removing chest hair are merely superficial, there are a number of ways to remove it.
Getting Rid Of Chest Hair:
Shaving: Shaving is perhaps the cheapest way to remove your chest hair. Apply shaving cream before shaving your chest to avoid cuts and pain. Shaving your chest without a cream will not only take longer, but will cause more irritation. Keep in mind that though shaving is fast and inexpensive, hair will grow back faster than other methods because shaving does not get hair follicles from the root. Don’t worry about it growing back thicker and darker, however. That is an old wives’ tale.
Tweezing: Perhaps the most time-consuming way to remove your chest hair is tweezing or plucking them out one by one. More realistically, however, is to pluck hair in smaller areas on the chest such as on or around the nipples, where it is most sensitive. To remove the hair follicle from its root, The Complete Hair Removal Guide recommends stretching the skin, pulling the hair close to the root gently and evenly, and in the direction of growth. Avoid yanking the hair with the tweezer because it may break off, causing ingrown hairs.
Waxing: Waxing is a little painful process but keeps your chest free of hair for a longer time. In addition, the hair that will grow will be thinner than the original one. You can do waxing from a professional or ask someone to do it for you. Home waxing kits are available that can be used safely.
Trimming: Removing chest hair and maintaining it can be very challenging and painful, especially for people who have lots of chest hair. If you are one among them, you can consider trimming or grooming your hair rather than removing it all together. You can have a classic groomed look by trimming your chest hair with the help of scissors or an electric trimmer.
Electrolysis: Electrolysis is a method of hair removal where an expert inserts a needle into each and every hair follicle and zaps it with electricity. This zap of electricity’ kills the hair follicle. Sounds painful? Yes, it is, but the pain is a small price to pay to permanent rid of the hair on your chest. It can take more than a single session to get a hair-free chest as it all depends on the amount of hair on your chest.
Laser Hair Removal: One of the most effective and least painful ways of removing chest hair is through laser treatments. Though this method has a variety of factors that determine its effectiveness, including color of hair and skin pigmentation, laser hair removal kills hair follicles, permanently reducing the quantity of hair. Light from the laser passes through the skin to the hair follicle. Energy from the laser gives off heat, which in turn, kills the follicle. Unlike electrolysis, laser treatment can kill more than one hair follicle at a time, making laser treatment a faster though more expensive process.
Permanent Body Hair Removal: If any of these methods do not work and you still want to have a clean chest, you can consider removing your hair permanently through laser hair treatment. Laser treatment targets the hair follicles and destroys it from the roots. This procedure requires several treatments and many sittings to complete the job.
