For professionals looking for hair removal methods outside of waxing or lasering, a natural hair removal product can be a great alternative. When it comes to choosing the right product, it is important to consider a number of factors to ensure the highest level of client satisfaction. Below are just some of the features to look for when comparing products.
Formulation is a key factor when deciding on the best product to use during hair removal services. When it comes to natural hair removal products, first check the ingredients lists. Look for a product that uses simple ingredients and is botanical-based, anhydrous, and naturally self-preserving. This will mean the product does not use potentially harmful ingredients or synthetic preservatives to stay fresh and will ensure it is safe enough for the entire body. An ideal product will also be antibacterial and antimicrobial, cleaning the skin and eliminating bacteria so that no cross contamination or breakouts occur as a result of treatment. Another factor to consider might include looking for products that use no animal products and are not tested on animals.
Next, once a natural hair removal product is evaluated for its formulation, consider its use during treatments. A quality product will be made with ingredients that do not evaporate, so the product will not dry out and will be long-lasting. Additionally, a superior product will stick only to the hair and not to the skin. This is important for several reasons. First, because the top layer of skin is not pulled during treatment, the possibility of skin irritation and damage is significantly reduced. This means the client experiences less discomfort – such as redness, pain, and swelling. Second, a non-adhesive product also ensures fewer hairs are broken during treatment, which means a smoother finish post-treatment and longer-lasting results. Finally, choose a product that has a thin application because less product will be needed per treatment, increasing the overall number of uses gained before it is time to reorder.
PRE- AND POST-CARE PRODUCTS
Last, when making the decision of which natural hair removal product to go with, it may be a good idea to look at the other products offered by the same company. Does the company offer companion products specifically formulated to pair well with the hair removal product? Such products might include a pre-treatment product designed to soften coarse hairs for easier removal during the treatment, for example, or a post-care product for preventing infections and ingrown hairs. Being able to offer these kinds of products to clients will improve the overall hair removal experience; and, choosing a brand that tailors its pre- and post-care products to work synergistically with its main treatment products will even further improve results and overall experience.
If these considerations are assessed during the decision-making process for natural hair removal products, skin care professional will be sure to choose products that ultimately leave their clients satisfied.
