Tired of dealing with razor bumps and ingrown hair? Yeah, we feel you.

That’s why we rounded up all your other hair removal options so you can finally ditch your razor nightmare and find something that feels more like self-care than it does torture.

Let’s start from your least intense, going to your most intense options.

1. Let Your Garden Grow

Perhaps it’s time to stop with the hair removal altogether? After all, it is the least invasive option on the least.

Not only can going full bush save you time, energy, and money, but it can also be totally empowering! Let’s ditch those gender norms!

2. Trim Your Topiary With Scissors

Rocking a full bush definitely isn’t for everyone so if you’re looking to give your lady garden a little trim, try finding a pair of body hair scissors (they even make ones specifically for your bikini area!). You’ll be surprised how easy it is to maintain a clean look with just a pair of steel scissors.

3. Nair it!

We know, we know — depilatories like Nair and Veet have bad reputations for being messy and smelly. But brands like Nair have come a long way in the last few years. They also offer a variety of options, including ones for sensitive skin. Just make sure you do a test stripe somewhere on your arm before you try it on your delicate parts.

4. Try Sugaring

If you have sensitive skin or you just prefer to stick to natural options, sugaring might be your best option. Sugaring is essentially waxing’s natural sister and removes hair using a sugar-based paste. On top of that, sugaring is often considered less painful than waxing because it only attaches itself to your hair and not also to your skin.

While there are tons of sugaring recipes available online, you should probably hit up a professional for your first go-around. Sugaring is a tricky skill that can take time to master and it never hurts to get a professional involved — especially when your most delicate skin is at stake.

5. Good Old Fashion Waxing

Waxing is, of course, a time-honored tradition that will always be an option. It can hurt like a mother, but it *definitely* gets the job done.

If you’re looking to only wax your bikini line, feel free to try at-home waxing kits. But if you’re wanting to go full Brazillian, then definitely book yourself an appointment at a local salon. Prices vary based on where you go, but it’s worth it to make sure you get it done right. This is not something you want an amateur playing around with.

If you do try doing it home, make sure you have an ingrown hair solution on hand in case things go awry.

6. Laser it All Off!

The most effective option on this list is easily laser hair removal. And, if you’re ready to commit, then you should definitely go for full body laser hair removal, which, yes, includes a Brazillian or manzilian.

In just 6-12 sessions, you could have a 95% reduction in hair growth permanently. That’s right. You’d never have to deal with hair removal again. So while it’s definitely the most pricey option on this list, it’s also a one-time expense that would end your hair problems forever.
