When it comes to hair removal, finding your holy grail method can be a task. Waxing and threading, for some, are too painful to even consider while shaving is just too much of an effort when you’re going to sprout a stubble faster than you can say smooth skin. This is why a lot of women prefer using hair remover sprays. Not only are they quick and efficient, but they also leave your skin feeling smooth for longer than shaving would. In this article, we’ve put together a list of our 10 favorite hair remover sprays. But first, let’s look at how these things work.
Hair remover sprays are, essentially, chemical depilatory creams. These creams remove hair by dissolving the disulfide bonds between the keratin proteins in your hair shafts with the help of chemicals like potassium thioglycolate and calcium hydroxide. This allows for the hair to grow back eventually but not as soon as it would with shaving. Most hair remover sprays also leave your skin feeling smoother for longer periods of time. However, you must exercise caution while using these products as they can cause irritation among people who have sensitive skin. It is always a good idea to conduct a patch test first.
Sally Hanson’s Spray-On Shower-Off Hair remover works in as little as 3-10 minutes, removing any unwanted body hair. You simply need to spray the depilatory cream on, wait for a couple of minutes, and then wash it off without needing to touch it or spread it. With a pleasant vanilla scent, the hair remover helps reduce the appearance of regrowth and has been dermatologically tested. The 360 Degree spray can also be sprayed upside down to help remove hair from hard to reach areas.
Nair’s Sprays Away is infused with the goodness of Orange Blossom and Moroccan Argan Oil to help moisturize your skin while removing hair in as little as 4 minutes. The bottle sprays upside down. The resulting smoothness of your skin lasts for longer than it would after a shave. The hair remover claims to be effective even on thick and coarse hair.
Elite Ozone’s Hair Removal Spray is specially formulated to remove coarse and thick hair, making it perfect for men as well as women with thick hair.

Using a men’s product to remove hair might sound odd, but hear me out. Men’s hair is typically thick and coarse and the products meant for removing this kind of hair would also, naturally, be stronger. A lot of women with thick hair often have trouble finding the right depilatory products. If you have thick and coarse body hair, this might be the product for you.

The side effects of using hair remover sprays include skin irritation, itching, dryness, rash, and sensitivity. The depilatory treatments can also cause chemical burns and allergic reactions. While these side effects are extremely rare, they may occur if you have extremely sensitive skin. A more common side effect is the lingering odor left behind by the chemicals in hair remover sprays. It is advised to conduct patch tests to avoid any adverse effects that your hair remover spray might have.
