i took this from a men's health fitness board posting as it seems very useful, it does seem to have some grammar and spelling errors, but i did not take the time to correct those: as such, i hope this may be of some use: "Nair is a dilapitory hair removal cream. It has acid that dissolves hair from under the skin. Therefore, hair removed by dilapitory methods takes little longer to grow back than shaving that simply removes hair from the surface of skin. It's easy to use and leaves skin nice and smooth like baby butt. Regular Nair (supposedly for women) is much much better than Nair for men, which is stronger but burns more. "Electric Epilator is another method to remove hair temporarily. It basically works on the principle of a tweezer with several tweezers that electrically rotate and grab and pull number of hair from roots at a time. It's painful. I have never used it but maybe someone else may explain it better? (Braun silk epilator costs no more than $70 or so). "With that said, here is a plan you might wanna follow: "Eyebrows: Trim that "sticking out" hair with a scissor. If need be, get it done by a professional (small scissor costs no more than $3-salon waxing of eyebrows should not cost more than $10-12)). "Ears: Like it or not, as men grow older, hair starts sprouting at all unexpected places. Pull out hair with your fingers. It's usually a single or few shafts sticking out that can be easily grabbed and pulled with fingers. "Nose: Pull out hair that is popping out of nose with your fingers or you can easily shave it with a razor by pulling your nostril aside a little bit or else buy a nose trimmer (trimmer costs no more than $9). "Under eyes: Use a tweezer to grab and pull that unwanted hair (tweezer costs no more than $3). "Arms: Use an electric hair clipper machine to trim down the hair on forearms/arms (hair clipper set costs no more than $12). "Armpits: You can absolutely use a razor to shave off hair from the pit in shower under running water (used face shaving razor is equally effective and economical). "Chest & Abs: Use Nair hair removal cream. If you have long hair, trim it down with the clipper first. Use regular Nair (for women) instead of Nair for men (Why? Check the above link). "Back & Shoulders: The most hated hair. Use sugar wax Nad's for men or regular Nad's or any sugar waxing will do. Nad has the advantage that you do not need to heat the wax. It can be used cold and therefore, there is no risk of a burn. You need someone to help you with waxing on the back. Wax is a sticky substance that's spread onto your skin and a piece of cloth is used on the top of it that "grabs" hair and then the strip is pulled with a quick jerk and hair comes off in "lumpsum". Using wax for back is less painful than using on any other area (Nad's $29 at Genovese; other sugar wax about $8). "Pubic: Shave it with a razor along with hair on shaft and balls in shower under running water. Yup. u can easily shave balls and shaft with a razor. "Peri-anal: It's a sensitive area, so never use Nair or any hair removal cream. You can easily shave it. Bend down a little bit, pull one cheek with one hand and shave the area with the other hand. Trust me it's easy. "Butts: You can remove hair either by using Nair or shaving by razor. "Legs: Shaving is more economical and preferable than using Nair. Make sure you wet hair on your leg. You may use soap, or some inexpensive shaving gel, or even a little bit of hair conditioner to make hair soft and easy to shave."
