Nasal hair plays an important part of the human body’s defense system. Along with the cilia farther up the nose, nasal hair prevents floating dust and microscopic germs from finding their way into the lungs and wreaking havoc.
Unfortunately, nasal hair can overgrow its territory, and when it does, the results aren’t pretty. Since there is no permanent nasal hair removal solution—hair removal lasers are much too dangerous for inner-nostril use—for now, you’ll have to stick to grooming.
Remember, whenever you’re grooming nasal hair, you want to focus mainly on the sprung follicles. Get too obsessive about removing every hair and you leave yourself open to airborne attack.
Without the proper tools, the removal of nasal hair can be a painful experience. There are a number of nose hair grooming methods to choose from, and some to avoid.
Methods to Avoid
Methods to Use
Manual Nose Hair Clippers—A more cost-effective solution for overgrown nose hair is a manual nose hair trimmer. These vary in design. Newer models are cylindrical shaped with one end that resembles a crown with several blunt ends. By inserting the crown into the nostril and rotating the other end of the device, any hair haplessly caught between crown ends will be severed safely and painlessly.
Electric Nose Hair Trimmers—These devices are specially designed to trim the hairs in the nostrils. They typically feature tiny whirling blades that trim the hair along the wall of the nose. Some models include a variety of trimmer heads, a light so you can see inside the nose, and/or a vacuum mechanism to collect the trimmings. Electric nose hair trimmers are generally battery powered. If the model you purchase does not come with a vacuum, make sure to blow your nose after using it to prevent breathing bits of hair into your lungs.
Depilatory Creams—There are a number of nasal hair removal creams on the market, but before using them, remember that some creams may have a strong odor or chemicals which can cause irritation or allergic reactions. It is best to test it on your skin before using it in your nose.
Before using one of the aforementioned devices, always be sure to follow the instructions that are packaged with the device. Also, ensure that both the device and your nostrils are clean before use.
