How To Get Rid Of Nose Hair


When it comes on to grooming, we take special care to fix and pamper the places that we know people always look at. We ensure that our hair on our head is taken care of. For men (and some menly women) we ensure that our beards are either properly combed or trimmed. When it comes to arm hair that is also an area of special interest. Women especially almost always gets rid of underarm hair immediately as they begin to emerge. I for one loves to see a woman without underarm hair. Having ghastly under arm hair actually looks much more disgusting on women than men. Women will spend a lot of time on hair than men do, they spend hours sitting in the hair salon and comes back out many times looking just as how they went in. Then they have to groom those bushy eyebrows. We speak about hair grooming on parts of our bodies that are seen by the public, there are also sensitive parts of our bodies that we must groom to also maintain a proper hygiene. I think you all know what i mean right? snip snip.

But there is one little place that many of us seem to forget that may need a little attention now and then, that is the grooming of our nose hair. This issue is more of a manly one than a woman's because nose hair in men sometimes grows to epic proportions. But we must remember that the hair in our nose is not just there as decorations. They are there to aid us in our air flow. The hair in you nose acts like a filter. It is able to trap tiny dust particles from passing to our lungs. It is not a "A" class filter but it does help. Have you ever had the urge to sneeze? have you ever sneezed? Well since you answered yes to both questions i can then state that your nose hair also aids in the sneezing process. Nose hair are quite sensitive, and when any foreign object triggers that sensation it will signal the brain to sneeze, resulting in maybe mucus or snot to capture any nasal intruder in goo.

Pluck a nose hair

  • People just love to go into their noses. But what they don't know is that it may end up being a deadly adventure! Your nose and mouth are linked. If you go in your nose and pull that hair out, you will eventually get a little bit blood lost in there. Blood allows the bacteria in your nose to grow in there. Since veins in the facial area lack protective valves, the bacteria could theoretically enter your bloodstream and lead to infections elsewhere in the body. Plucking the hair out you nose is not only painful, it can end up being deadly. Don't ever pluck nose hairs.
  • If you have a very old prehistoric like hair coming out of your nostrils, snip it with curve-tipped scissors, with no sharp edges, or a Nose hair grooming device. Do not pull the hair.

Nose Waxing

  • Every ones body is different and may react differently to different types of chemicals placed on or in the body. Wax applied in the nose is no different. Was can disrupt the sensitive membranes which line the nasal cavity and produce undesirable effects. Remember that the nose is also linked Ear and throat and a person with allergic reactions to nose wax may even develop complications in these areas. You must always read what type of chemicals are put into the nose wax ad find out its effects before you apply.

Venkatachari M, electronic triggers are much better and you have various kinds to choose from. Or you may risk waxing.

Very useful article. Trimming nose hair is a great task for me. I could not manage it at all. I don't use electronic trimmers. And scissors is always a failure as it's points can not cut hair. I trim the edges with my razor and leave inner portion as it is until the hair grows longer enough to be cut with scissors. Then too, I am able to cut only a small piece of the hair that can be hold with fingers.

Nose hairs are interesting. They are very private unless they are not and if they are not then one must take care of it.
