Some women love hairy men and that’s awesome, however, almost no one likes men with hairy nose or ears. And no one wants to have hair in their ears either but it is an unfortunate consequence of getting old – one of many. It does lead to a logical question, however – how to remove ear hair?
Here are several ear hair removal tips and solutions you might want to use:
Simply ask your barber to do it the next time you’re getting a haircut
It may not be a request you feel comfortable to make at first but keep in mind that this is a part of a barber’s job description. In fact, your barber will likely ask you if you want him or her to do it for you but if they don’t – ask them! There’s nothing shameful in getting your ear hair clipped and if your barber hasn’t asked you first, it’s likely because they didn’t know how you’d react.
Trim it yourself
Probably the easiest and best way to remove ear hair is to simply get a nice ear hair trimmer and use it yourself. A good ear hair trimmer is easy to use, it’s safe, especially once you get the hang of it, and it does a quick job. Plus, it can be used for your nose hair too.
If you only have a few ear or nose hairs, if you don’t want to invest in an ear hair trimmer, and if you don’t mind some light pain, you can simply use a pair of tweezers to pull the unwanted hairs out. Don’t push the tweezers inside your ear, however, you don’t want to damage our eardrums – just pull what few stragglers you can see from the top.
Laser hair removal
If you want to know how to remove ear hair permanently, then this is the best way to go about it. Laser hair removal uses pulsed light and requires multiple treatments to impair the hair follicles in your ears but it does work. You’ll probably still get some light hair growth after the final procedure but it shouldn’t be anything problematic.
This is another permanent solution for ear hair. Both electrolysis and laser hair removal are FDA-approved and electrolysis also takes multiple treatments to work. It’s not as safe as lasers, however, as it consists of inserting tiny needles into your hair follicles – needless to say, finding a professional and skilled electrologist is a must.
This is a good way to remove hair from the outside of your ear but it’s hard to get used to and it’s even harder to use for hair inside the ear. On the other hand, waxing does remove the entire hair follicle which is good.
This method is similar to waxing but it uses strips for sugaring. It typically hurts less than waxing but both of these methods carry a risk of infections. And, like waxing, this method is easier to use for hair outside of your ear than for hair inside your ear.
