Laser Hair Removal at Home
Have you wondered if the effort of DIY laser hair removal at home is
The No No Hair Remover Device
After reading a gazillion home laser hair removal reviews I decided to
give the No No hair remover a try.
So does it work?. . .
Is it worth purchasing?. . .
For the majority of us, No!
The manufacturer promises that this home laser hair removal device will
instantly remove hair and that it will stay away for weeks with no
pain, no mess and no chemicals.
According to the manufacturer's
website, the No!No! hair remover uses heat to instantly eliminate and
crystallize the hair. Unfortunately this is not quite the "miracle" DIY
laser hair removal at home device I thought it would be.
In a simple
pro vs. con comparison, the cons won by a landslide.
The device works by suspending what appears to be a super-heated wire a
few millimeters above the skin and 'crystallizing' the hair it comes
into contact with.
does in fact 'crystallize' the hair.
Con: It smells! A lot. Like
burning hair. Which, of course, is exactly
what happens as the hair 'crystalizes!
only works on hair that is exactly the correct length and only reaches
the hairs that stand up enough to reach the wire. Meaning, even the
hair that was the right length would not be removed if it did not stand
straight up out of the follicle.
Con: The hair removal
was FAR from
instant. It took many, many passes over the same area to remove the
majority of the hair. (I'm not sure I ever got all of them) I read
every section of the user's manual at least twice, watched the video on
the website and practiced my technique, but the process was still VERY
time-consuming. My bikini line alone took me a minimum of 20 minutes
per session. There was NO WAY I would
ever have enough time to keep up
with my leg hair.
Con: The device only
works properly when the skin is pulled completely
taut and when it is gliding over a flat (Read: NO Curves!) area.
Anytime it senses a curve, a bone, or any other body structure, it
Con: It is not very
effective on coarse hair. Even the website admits
that if your hair is thick, coarse, or grows back quickly, "you may
need another option."
I purchased the No!No! DIY laser hair removal at home device with the
idea that I might be able to eliminate
the expense of eyebrow and bikini waxing while possibly reducing the
need to shave my legs. As I explained above, treating my legs was ruled
out almost instantly.
