Hair Removal – How much is it costing you?!

October 13, 2014

Have a guess at how much time and money you will spend on hair removal in your lifetime!

A recent study has revealed that British women spend on average £8,000 in a lifetime removing unwanted hair!  Just think what else you could do with that money!

It’s not just money they are spending, it’s their time too. The study of 3,000 women by Remington, reveals that 88% will spend four months of their entire lifetime removing unwanted body hair with a whole range of techniques including razors, epilators and waxing.

As we spend so much time and money on hair removal, this month we’d like to share some tips with you:

  • Ingrown hairs are caused when the hairs curl back under the skin. Avoid ingrown hairs by exfoliating regularly.
  • If you do shave, always apply oil or moisturiser after shaving. The skin on your legs has few oil glands and has a tendency for dryness.
  • If you want to avoid shaving or waxing in the future, then consider Pulsar Permanent Hair Reduction.
  • Laser hair removal works best on dark hair and light skin because the laser targets melanin which is found in dark hair.
  • You should avoid a suntan or tanning products whilst having Pulsar treatments, so it’s a good idea to plan for this during the winter.
  • Did you know that unlike sugaring and waxing you can shave any time before your Pulsar treatments?
  • The number of Pulsar treatments required to permanently remove the hair will vary from client to client, but on average most clients require 8-10 treatments.
  • Many people ask if Pulsar is painful.  One client recently said, “It’s relatively pain-free and certainly less painful than waxing.  Some areas do not hurt at all although some areas are more sensitive such as your ankles. I’ve been delighted with my results and noticed a difference after the 2nd treatment.”

The women interviewed said they’d be prepared to spend £712 to remove unwanted hair for life, clearly unaware of the actual cost they are paying to shave as they go. A further 2% of respondents admitted they were so desperate to be hair-free they’d pay up to £10,000.
