Does Nair Really Remove Hair?

Nair removes hair from the skin by dissolving the hair shaft. It works on the skin’s surface so hair may grow back quickly, usually within four days. The results last a little longer than shaving.

Nair and other depilatories can be safe, painless methods for hair removal, but the chemicals may irritate the skin if they are left on too long. A reaction may also occur when applying Nair to sensitive areas, such as the face and genitals. To avoid a reaction, read the instructions before the using the product. Test Nair on a small patch of skin to test for a reaction to the cream.
