The use of chemical hair-removal products has increased in popularity in recent times.
Hair removal products with chemicals, however, are by no means a modern phenomenon.
Pre-Columbian Americans used lye to eliminate body hair. Nair removes hair by chemically breaking down and dissolving it.
Many Nair users often wonder about what parts of their body the product can be used on.
This confusion may stem partly from the fact that there are many chemical hair removal products on sale today which are only applicable to certain body parts.
Can you use Nair on your back?
Yes. This article tells you how.
How to apply Nair to Your Back
Choose your Nair product carefully
Nair has a variety of hair removal products aimed at working on different types of hair.
Carefully select which one suits your body’s unique requirements. The products contain detailed explanations of how they are meant to be applied.
They also tell you how long the cream should be left on your skin. Be sure to read and follow these instructions.
Body sensitivity test
It is important to carry out this trial to know if your skin is Nair-compatible.
You can do this by applying a little amount of Nair on any part of your body that you can easily view in a mirror and wiping the same away after the expiration of the recommended duration.
If you do not experience any rashes, irritation, or any other skin problems on the spot after a day, you can carry on with the full application.
Apply the product
With the help of another person or using a lotion applicator to all parts of your back. You do not need to bother rubbing it, spreading the product evenly on your back’s surface will do.
Let the cream remain on your back for anywhere from five to ten minutes, depending on your hair texture. The tougher your hair, the longer Nair should stay on your back.
After the application time expires, you can wipe off the hair removal product.
Safety Precautions to Observe
Nair is not to be applied on certain body parts such as the genitals, face, head, and nose. Nair users must ensure that they do not apply the product on the skin that is inflamed or irritated.
However, the product can be used on virtually all other body parts including the back, legs, and belly.
What if I have coarse back hair?
For users with particularly tough and thick back hair, it is advisable to leave the product on your back after applying it for a longer duration.
You can leave it for ten minutes or more for optimal effectiveness.
It is also wise to apply larger amounts of the product. Nair’s calcium and sodium hydroxide content enables it to eliminate even the toughest body hairs.
Can people with long back hair use Nair?
If your back hair is not short, it is advisable to reduce its length before applying Nair on your back. An electric back hair shaver can do the trick.
For Nair to produce maximal results, your hair length must be about a quarter of an inch.
