Hair is sometimes disgusting, especially when it settles in a clump on the dorm bathroom floor. Ewww! There are many instances when hair is just as gross while still on a person as it is when it's off. Hair that particularly creeps me out is ear hair and nose hair—it's just not necessary. Other than the obvious places where hair shouldn't be visible (e.g., nose and ears) it doesn't usually bother me when it's still attached to someone. However, some still have problems with that and rather than just plucking or waxing, desire to remove it all together. One of the ways to do that: electrolysis.
Electrolysis is the process used to kill the hair follicle thus making it so hair cannot grow. However it does sound a bit painful. You can get electrolysis done with either professional help or do-it-yourself kits. I'd recommend getting it done professionally to have a better chance at having everything turn out okay. Also the fact that it's a bit painful would make it more difficult to persevere in inflicting that on yourself.
After you buy a kit (which is really the only way to go if you're doing it yourself) here are a few tips on how to make the process run smoothly.
Electrolysis is a quick and relatively cheap way to get rid of unwanted hairs but just be careful to not overdo it. Your face is usually permanent, so just use caution when electrocuting it!
