The best way to remove underarm hair depends on the sensitivity and type of skin. The preferred methods used by estheticians include shaving and waxing, along with depilatories, electrolysis and laser hair removal.
Depilatories offer the easiest way to remove underarm hair because a chemical solution is used to break down protein and keratin bonds in hair follicles. However, the chemicals can be harsh and cause adverse skin reactions while only getting rid of hair for a couple of days. Shaving can cause nicks and cuts if a sharp razor is not used. Waxing and electrolysis get rid of hair the most effectively but cause the most pain.
