Electrolysis is used to remove hair from the body and face, and this can include your head. They destroy the growth center of the hair with a chemical or with heat energy. It works by using a very fine probe and inserting it into the hair follicle and then the hair is removed with tweezers. It is likely that you will need multiple treatments, but this depends on the type of hair you want to be removed. The treatment can be painful, especially on sensitive areas so your therapist might give you a topical anesthetic. The FDA has recognized that electrolysis is the only permanent method of hair removal.
This can be a good way to really make your head smooth and to last for a long time. It is an effective method in removing the hair from your head. It works by applying warm or hot wax to your head and then a strip is placed on top of the wax and then ripped away, taking numerous hair follicles with it. This method seems to last longer than shaving and you don’t have to have the treatment as often. However, this method can prove to be uncomfortable as the skin on the scalp is delicate and can be quite painful due to the nerve endings in the skin on your scalp.

This is very similar to waxing. The therapist will apply a paste to the area of hair you want removing. This paste is made of sugar, lemon juice, and honey and is applied while at body temperature rather than hot. Then paste “molds” to your skin and sticks to the hairs growing there before the paste is ripped off in the direction of the hair follicles. This method is good when you don’t want to do waxing. Sugaring leaves you will less ingrown hairs, less redness, and doesn’t remove skin cells as waxing can do. It lasts for much longer than other methods and your hair does not need to be as long as it does for waxing when you need another treatment.
This treatment is designed to get rid of the smallest and finest hair easily. It also leaves the area of skin where the hair has been removed relatively clear and not swollen or red. It works by using a cotton thread and pulling it in a twisting motion along the unwanted hair. This traps the hair in a mini lasso of sorts and lifts the hair from the follicle. It can be slightly painful, but people are saying it’s much less painful than waxing is. You can also do this treatment when your hairs are shorter than with waxing and it lasts for a quite a long time. Hair will, inevitably, grow back but it will grow back finer than before which is much easier to remove.
Depilatories (Veet and Nair)
These are hair removal creams and work by dissolving the hair on your head. You apply the cream to the area where you want the hair to be gone, wait for as long as instructed, and then wash it off, and your hair should disappear along with it. This way you remove the aggravating shaving, and the shaving bumps that might come with it, and have something that might be easier and more relaxing to use. The only downside with depilatories is that they smell quite bad, so it’s best to have a shower to get the gunk off. This can also cause mild irritation.
This is where a rough surface is used in order to buff away the hair that is above the skin’s surface. It is usually done with a pumice stone, emery cloth or hair removal mittens. It works fast, is inexpensive, relatively painless, and can be done at home and not in a barber or salon. It also leaves you with smooth, exfoliated skin. It does not, however, last for that long and can cause the skin to become irritated if it is rubbed too hard.
In conclusion, there are many ways to get a bald head without having to shave, and we all know how much of a pain shaving can be. So, you know you can go out and look for other options for getting a bald head, whether it’s electrolysis for a more permanent effect, or waxing, threading or sugaring. Even depilatories and friction have their advantages as they can be used in the home.
