Many people have to deal with the problem of overgrown hair strands protruding from their nose at some point in their lives, especially as they age. And oh yeah, we agree it sucks! Read on to discover some of the ways in which you can get rid of those ugly nose hairs.
How to Get Rid of Nose Hair by Waxing
Waxing has for a long time been commonly used to get rid of eyebrows and other unwanted hair on the body. Nose hair waxing is however growing in popularity with more and more beauty salons embracing it since the year 2009.
You should however be sure to read the instructions carefully before using any wax product (and any other product of course) to get rid of hair in your nose. Otherwise you might end up with an irritated nasal cavity or swallowing harmful products leaking into your pharynx from your nose.
You should also remember that those hairs in your nose serves vital purpose in the nose chief among them being the protection of you respiratory system from external materials such as dust and other solid particles, and airborne germs that might cause respiratory infections.
You don’t want to get rid of each and every single strand of hair in your nose only to end up sneezing all the time due to dust or to have knats stealing their way into your nasal cavity. And in case you have a runny nose with those bald nostrils, who knows you might get it running out like water from a hose pipe? Not so interesting, is it?
These days you cannot talk about getting rid of nose hairs by “waxing” without mentioning Nad’s Nose Wax For Men & Women. This is a DIY kit that is designed to get rid of those stray nasal hairs trying to catch some sunlight without knowing the kind of attention they get to your nose.
The manufacturer says that it gives you “the convenience of removing unwanted hairs in your nose as needed in the privacy of your home.” It comes with a unique SafeTip Applicator that can be safely inserted into the nose with some wax applied on it. The applicator is designed to target only the area near the edges of your nostrils and thus remove only the hair protruding from your nose (or visible from the outside).
After inserting the applicator into the nose, you are required to wait some 90 seconds before removing it and voila, it comes off with those unruly nasal hairs. Nad’s Nose Wax For Men & Women can also be used to remove blackheads and cleanse the nose pores. And the best part, online reviews from users of the product suggest that it doesn’t hurt.

Laser Nose Hair Removal
Laser nose hair removal is also increasingly being used to get rid of hair in your nose. This involves passing a beam of laser light into the hair follicles. The laser light is then absorbed by the pigment in the hair follicles, thus “killing” the luxuriantly growing hairs in your nose which don’t grow back again.
Precision is the most remarkable advantage of laser treatment. This allows a practitioner to target some nasal hair strands without damaging the surrounding skin. Some practitioners may however be hesitant to offer laser hair removal for the skin. Laser hair removal is also very fast and a few seconds are enough to treat numerous hairs.
Nose Hair Removal Cream
Nose hair removal creams are increasingly being advertised as a way to get rid of nasal hair. They are generally not suggested but if you must use such products, you should exercise your due diligence to ensure safety.
Some may also not be very ideal for the sensitive skin in the nose and may lead to irritation. We cannot rule out the use of nasal hair removal creams altogether, but make sure you have read the usage instructions very carefully before using them.
How to Get Rid of Nose Hair Using Nose Hair Clippers
Rather than use a pair of scissors or tweezers to get rid of those pesky and unsightly nasal hairs sticking out of your nostrils, you can use nasal hair clippers. Nose hair clippers are portable grooming devices designed to get rid of overgrown and protruding nasal hair with ease without having to pluck them out.
Most clippers use toothed, stainless steel blades that vibrate back and forth across each other. They are like a bunch of small scissors that cuts the hair in your nose when it gets in between them.
Nasal hair clippers can be manually operated or electric but the electric ones are a lot more common. The manual nasal hair clippers have handles that are typically squeezed by one hand to make the blades move while the other hand guides the clipper around the nostrils. A good example of manual nose hair clippers is Groom Mate.
Rather than shave the the hairs in your nose, clippers trim the hair to a length of about 0.5 mm but this varies slightly from one brand of clipper to the other.
Nose hair clippers typically feature small comb attachments on the blades to prevent direct contact with the skin as you maneuver around your nose. This prevents the clipper from nicking your nasal skin.
Nose Hair Trimmers
You might as well have heard some people talk about nose hair trimmers and wondered what the differences are between these trimmers and and nasal hair clippers. These are basically one and the same thing. In technical terms a trimmer is meant for smaller tasks compared to a clipper, but given the small size of the nose, it is only logical to use the terms clipper and trimmer synonymously. This is understandably the case. [See our review of best rated trimmers for your nasal hairs].
