New Nair Survey Shows Unwanted Body Hair is No Confidence Booster


Just shy of 80 percent of women are more confident when they do not have unwanted body hair, according to a recent online survey conducted by Harris Poll on behalf of Church & Dwight Co., Inc., the makers of Nair™.

Who Wears Short Shorts? Nair for Short Shorts

In the survey of 1000 women, 74 percent feel less confident wearing revealing clothing (e.g. short shorts, tanks, skirts, bathing suits) when they have unwanted body hair, and three in five women are less confident being intimate when they have hair on their legs and/or bikini area. More than half of women feel less confident on a date when they have unwanted body hair, the survey showed.

Millennial women are more than twice as likely to remove unwanted body hair regularly (i.e. daily/every other day) during the summer months vs. the winter months.

The study also finds that while nine in ten women agree that shaving causes nicks and cuts, most still claim shaving is their top hair removal method.

“My patient visits spike during the summer months because women want their skin to look great this time of year," says Debra Jaliman, MD, a NYC-based dermatologist, in a news release. "Realizing my patients want smooth, radiant looking skin, I recommend they use Nair™ products to remove unwanted hair, instead of shaving because shaving can cause nicks and cuts which damages the skin. My personal favorite is the Nair™ Nourish line with Japanese Cherry Blossom & 100% Natural Rice Bran Oil which goes beyond hair removal to leave skin healthy-looking, nourished and smooth."
