Nose hair waxing brings a lot of viral short videos to mind on various social media platforms including Instagram, TikTok and YouTube. Some of those videos are painfully hilarious and would make you laugh till you are almost crying. This made me realize that if people could attempt a lot of silly stuff all because they want to get read of nose hair at home, then professionals need to be more out there creating more content that people could find useful.
In this post, we will go over the basics of Nose Waxing and why it’s a recommended method for removing Nose hair. We don’t want you to go viral for the wrong reasons.
What is Nose Waxing?
Nose waxing, like other forms of waxing, uses hair wax as a method for removing hair that is found inside the nose. What most people who do not use the services of a professional do not understand with this process is that most of the hair in the nose is useful and while most people don’t want to see hair in their nose, removing all the hair in your nose is a bad idea.
When an Esthetician provides you a Nose waxing service, He/She makes sure that only the hair that is visible at the base of the nose is removed by using high quality hard wax because of the delicate nature of the nose.
The Importance of Nose Hair
Now that you understand the basics of nose waxing, it is also important to understand the role of nose hair. Nose hair serves as a barrier for harmful particles from entering the opening which is linked to the ear and throat. The hair helps to prevent infections and reduces allergies.
It is also important for the air that we breathe in and out. It helps the air that we breath in retain moisture which is needed for keeping the lungs from drying out.
Should I wax my Nose?
While science says that the bushier the better for the nose, we have to say that some people get really embarrased when they see so much hair from their nose.
It ok to wax the hair that’s close to the base of your nose if you don’t like the idea of using a nose trimmer. However, it is important to also note that if using a professional is out of the question for you, then you should probably not be waxing that nose hair.
As a conclusion, we would like to let you know that nose hair is good for you and if you have to wax it, make sure you consult a trained professional and not do it at home. We don’t want you trending for the wrong reason on social media.
