How long does it take for hair to grow back after using hair remover cream?

I went on an excited flurry in the pound shop yesterday and came out with a tube of Nair sensitive, which I've never used before.

Used it on bikini line today and all seems fine, no adverse reaction, however does it grow back differently from waxing/shaving? And generally how long?

Hair cream takes the hair off at the surface of the skin, maybe just below. waxing pulls it out by the root. Hair cream will probably give you slightly longer than shaving. Maybe 2-3 days, but people vary. Depends if stubble annoys you, or you can live with. And how dark your hair is, eg how visible.
