Nasal hair, should you remove it?

Only if it bothers you/is outwardly visible. Don't remove it if you have allergies. I had a friend that regularly had her nose hair waxed. I cannot think of anything worse! Ouch!

Yeah I wax mine. Far less painful than tweezing individually. I do my partners too. He also says its far less painful.

How the jeff do you wax a nose??!!

Yes but I think you should trim rather than pluck. Apparently plucking increases the rick of nasal infection, then it'll go up to your brain pan and kill the life out of you.

You'll thank me later.
For about £3 you can get a nasal hair trimmer. Looks fairly innocuous, a little battery operated cylinder which you hold just inside your nostril and voila! Gone.
I bought DH one and just steal it occasionally.

I have a large nose so sometimes a little of my septum can be seen if I laugh or have certain facial expressions.

I check it now and again and tweeze, if I can be arsed a lot of time I can't blush

I might have occasionally had a little snip about up there with the nail sissors blush

I would trim mine if it bothered me. You need some hair up there.
I would also like an answer to the question of how the jeff one waxes a nose.

Bleurghghghgh Mon 27-Mar-17 12:52:37

Nair (I think) do a nose waxing kit. It's a pot of microwaveable wax with a load of sticks with a bulbous end that you dip in the wax and put up your nose. It surprisingly isn't that painful and seeing all the hairs on it is veeery satisfying

Happyandhungry Mon 27-Mar-17 12:52:42

They put a sort of spike thing with wax on it up there and then swoosh it around and then wax it out! So i gather. Mine is not visible and i like having it to avoid allergy issues like hayfever so it doesnt bother me.

I snip any visible spider legs. But on the whole, nose hair is a positive thing for our health so I don't go mad.

Only trim. Don't pluck or wax, the hair is there for a reason.

Oooh do you all have dark hair??

I am very light blonde and you can barely see my eyebrows let alone any nasal hair!!!

However I may invest in some of these for dh ;)

Hair removal cream up there.

It hurts like fuck when you pull the septum ones near the outside world! Eyes water and everything grin

I love a good pluck.

Laiste Mon 27-Mar-17 15:05:33

I bought a little electric brow razor for the stray hairs below my brows which were too fine to pluck. It came with a nose hair attachment. I found it was pretty useless.

HappyAxolotl Mon 27-Mar-17 15:05:44

Howwwwllll! I have a hairy nose and occasionally I have a bash at tweezing it and I get about 3 hairs out before I'm in floods of tears and snot.

Mind you I am also the person who had a lopsided bikini line for a while as after 2 wax rips I had to beg the beautician to stop*. And my dentist has to give me a lot more anaesthetic than most patients as I just don't seem to go numb easily. So maybe I am a real wimp when it comes to pain. Although I have had piercings above and below the neck without flinching! Maybe it is having stuff ripped out rather than put in that affects me?

*To add insult to injury, it grew back to full furriness within a week!

SweetChickadee Mon 27-Mar-17 15:06:24

DH's barber does his. Hot wax on a cotton bud - one up each nostril and one in each ear, wait till it's gone solid, then... WHAM! Gone grin

He says it's not actually very painful.
