Sometimes it feels as if us dudes spend half of our adult lives shaving our faces, and depending on how much hair you have, it can be an incredibly time consuming process.
The last thing you want to do is spend any more time shaving other regions of your body such as your balls.
Shaving your balls can also be a pretty scary process, what if you nick yourself? Bloodshed is sure to follow.
That’s why hair removal creams such as Nair seem like a great option for avoiding such messes. But the question is, are they actually safe to use on sensitive areas such as the testicles?
To find out more about whether or not it’s okay to use Nair hair removal cream on your balls, keep reading as we take a look below.
How Does Nair Hair Removal Cream Work On Pubic Hair?
Before we move on to discuss whether or not Nair hair removal cream is actually safe to use on your balls, first let’s take a closer look at how it works.
Nair hair removal cream functions by breaking down the keratin fibers of your hair. This essentially means the protein fibers that make up your pubic hair and make them solid.
Adding Nair to your pubic hair breaks down these hairs until they are no longer solid, then you can simply wipe them away with a tissue.
Because it’s only breaking away the hair on the surface of your skin, it will grow back much faster than using other methods which pull it out at the root, such as waxing.
What Is Nair Made Of?
Now that we’ve taken a look at how Nair works on your private areas, let’s take a look at the ingredients list, which will help tell us whether it’s safe to use or not.
Nair consists of several different primary and secondary ingredients, some of which include
- Cetyl Alcohol
- Calcium Carbonate
- Sodium Lauryl Sulfate
- Sodium Silicate Solution
Is Nair Safe For Use On The Testicles?
Here it is, the question that you’ve all been waiting for. So, is Nair safe to use on your precious jewels? The short answer is unfortunately, no.
It’s not entirely safe to use on your testicle region. On a scale of safety for this region of your body, it falls somewhere in the middle.
The reason why it can be unsafe to use on sensitive skin is because of the PH levels that the formula contains.
Nair hair removal cream has a PH level of around 12.3, and we’re talking about the sensitive formula here. The issue is that your balls can only handle a PH level of around 3.5, so you’d be overloading them.
Using Nair in that region can cause irritation, redness, swelling, and even chemical burns.
If you don’t believe us, my dudes, just read the countless reviews on Amazon, of all the poor men who have ignored the advice on the bottle.
Will Nair Hurt My Balls?
Like we mentioned briefly above, using Nair hair removal cream on your balls could definitely induce pain. It could leave you with a numb, tingling feeling, or just outright burn.
Bottom of the story is, it’s not worth messing around with. Well, not unless you want to put that date off for another week.
Our balls are highly sensitive parts of our bodies, and so aren’t worth messing around with.
Are There Other Hair Removal Creams I Can Use?
The simple answer to this question is, yes! There are lots of hair removal creams out there that would be more suitable for your sack.
Just because Nair is the most well known hair removal cream on the market, it doesn’t mean that it’s your only option.
Make sure that when you’re choosing a hair removal cream for your balls, that you pick one that has a lower PH level that is more matched to your body’s natural levels.
This will be a massive improvement in terms of comfort.
Another thing to look out for when choosing a hair removal cream is that you’re selecting one which only has one single penetration enhancer instead of two.
So choose one that only has either sodium hydroxide, or calcium hydroxide.
How To Apply Hair Removal Cream To Your Balls
If you’ve managed to find a hair removal cream that states it’s safe to use on your pubic region, then you can go ahead and do a patch test on your skin to make sure that you’re not allergic. Under your arm is a good spot for this.
After you’ve done this, you can go ahead and trim your pubic hairs if they’re very long. The less hair you have to start off with, the better.
Now, you can go ahead and spread a small amount of the hair removal cream over your sack. Don’t go wild here, it’s better to start off slowly and gently.
Also, don’t rub the cream in, there’s simply no need. Instead just spread it over and let it do the magic for you.
After doing this, and having waited the allotted time that it mentions on your instructions, you can go ahead and wipe it off. Hey presto! Hairless sack galore.
Although some hair removal creams are safe to use on your balls, finding one can be difficult.
The Nair hair removal cream, although it is the most popular, isn’t a great choice to use on sensitive regions, unless you want to give the song ‘Great Balls Of Fire’ a new meaning.
Always take care to read the manufacturers guide to avoid any unwanted symptoms.
