Psst! Before you dive in... I just wanted to make sure that you didn't miss my epic guide to hair removal for men!
Much like chest hair, the trend of removing stomach hair has become much more mainstream recently.
Many say it makes them feel cleaner and more groomed, while others do so because it can make abs look more defined. It’s also a common practice for sportspeople.
Generally, the same goes for removing stomach hair as it does for chest hair, so I’ll keep this brief:
How to Get Rid of Stomach hair: the Do's
Long lasting results and finer regrowth make it a favorable choice over shaving, and you can treat a large area like the stomach in a relatively short amount of time (half an hour on average).
2. Hair removal cream
Another total hair removal method that will serve to effectively clear away unwanted stomach hair is depilation.
Depilatory cream will quickly melt away your stomach hairs with zero pain, and because the skin on your stomach isn’t hugely sensitive (when compared with other parts of the body) you should be able to use it there without any adverse effects (as long as you follow the instructions).
Not going to lie:
It’s going to hurt on the stomach area. But if you can put up with the pain, you’ll set yourself up for a hair free stomach area for several weeks. Make sure you use a good quality epilator with multiple speed functions (it may seem counter-intuitive but the higher the speed the less it will hurt).
4. Laser hair removal
Whether it’s total hair removal or just ‘thinning’ that you’re going for, laser hair removal is the most permanent at-home option for stomach hair removal. Once you’re happy to fork out the initial investment for a good quality machine and take the time to learn to use it, it’s the most effective long-term method for stomach hair removal you can find.
You probably know what I’m going to say next...
...just make sure that your skin and hair are within the suitable category for laser treatment first.
5. Electric trimmers
If you’re not too concerned about being totally hairless, electric trimmers are a fool-proof way to tame your stomach hair without completely removing it.
The best part is this:
You also spare your skin from irritation as the blades won’t come into direct contact with it, so no rashes, bumps, or ingrown hairs afterwards.
How to Get Rid of Stomach hair: the Don'ts
Stubbly regrowth and prickly to touch?
Not ideal for the stomach area, and doesn’t look good either.
Plus results are so fleeting, it’s barely worth the time it takes to do so.
Unless you’ve only got a couple of hairs on your belly (in which case, tweeze away) you’d probably read Ulysses faster than the time it would take you to pluck all the hairs from your stomach area.
The Bottom Line
So... how to get rid of stomach hair? Which way is the best? Well... there’s really no “best” overall answer - but based on this post, you should be able to find the right solution for your own individual needs.
