Q:

Can you use Nair on your head?

A:

The Nair website warns consumers not to use Nair on the head. It is safe to use on the legs, arms, underarms, bikini area, face, back and chest.

Nair hair removal products offer an alternative to shaving. The company's creams and sprays use a chemical formulation to dissolve the hair so that users can wipe it away, and waxes remove the hair from the root using strips or a roll-on formula. Both of these methods result in smoother, hair-free skin for a longer time than shaving. Depilatory creams and waxes are often more effective at removing hair from sensitive areas, such as the bikini line and the face. Nair has products that are specially formulated for those areas.

    Does Nair work?

    A:

    Nair works, as a hair removal cream, when used as directed. It removes hair by breaking down its protein structures. Depilatory creams are applied to the skin and allowed to sit for a certain amount of time. When they are removed, unwanted hair essentially wipes right off the skin.
