Something I've always been curious about.

Could one conceivably buy "Nair" to manage facial hair? I've heard mixed reviews by women about the stuff, from a godsend to just plain nasty.

I get so fed up with shaving; it sure would be cool if they had a product like that for men someday.

Ok, I'm bored. Can you tell?

Why don't you just use Nair? Why does it have to be "for guys?"

And here I thought this thread was equating to the lack there of.

I actually used it for a few weeks when my electric razor broke. It works, but it's not pleasant.

You know they make non-electric razors...

It smells awful, but dude, Nair is totally not gender specific. It's not a fucking tampon.

Once electrolysis for facial hair is available cheaply, I'm getting it.

We totally NAIR'd people that passed out too early in college.

NAIR stinks to high heaven, you do not want it on your face. But there are other lotions and powders that will do the same thing.

See, I thought about that, too. But I want the option of growing a goatee or a soulpatch, so that would rule that out.

For your face it's a shitty idea.

But it's a nice way to clean up the you know what for a picky girlfriend, and not leave ingrown hair bumps.

On the same tip: does anyone here use a straight razor?

They do make a Nair For Men. I just stocked some at my store on Tuesday.

I smeared a thick layer of Nair all over my already trimmed head once to make it bald and smooth.

Once.

The proper term was painful chemical burn.

There is stuff called "shaving powder" that I believe is quite similar.

Grow a beard.

I don't so much mind shaving my face. It's my back and ass that I'd need Nair for.

Oh sweet Jesus, whatever you do DO NOT PUT THAT SHIT ON YOUR FACE! I did it about a year ago because I get horrible razor burn and bumps on my lip that get cut every time I shave. So I thought it'd be a great idea. I put it all over my beard area. Well, after about 5 minutes it was the most intense chemical burning sensation I've ever experienced. So the next day my face looked like I had a fire beard and it hurt like a bitch.

And don't pick up a straight razor unless you have someone who can teach you. My uncle taught me and I would practice on my legs - the only place i had hair at the time. And it's not like riding a bike, I don't think I would be as good now as I was when I was a teenager.

I've been using Veet on my bikini area and really like it. But it does say to not use on the face, so maybe that's why they don't make it for guys.

The bikini area? They can, and indeed they should... makes a woman's visit down to that... area... much more enjoyable...

Sometimes the Nair type stuff doesn't work at well on thicker, coarser hair. Which would include beard hair.

Unless all you have is peach fuzz. Then Nair away.

I know, I've always thought about doing it, but just end up trimming afterwards. The stories I've heard scare the hell out of me. :scared:
