We suggest waiting at least 24 hours or until skin is normal and healthy, and no irritation is evident.
What is Nair™ Perfect Temp™ Technology?
Nair™ Perfect Temp™ Heat-activated technology means the Nair™ logo fades when warm, allowing you to know when to start using the strips.
How long will it take for the Nair™ logo to fade?
Nair™ logo fades from temperature not time. Rubbing the wax strip between your hands will warm the logo, which will fade when strip is ready for use.
How do double-sided strips work?
Warm the wax strip by massaging it between your hands.
When Nair™ logo fades, slowly pull the double-sided strip apart.
You now have two strips ready to use. Use one at a time.
Press the strip firmly in the direction of hair growth, and with one quick movement, pull the strip off in the opposite direction.
The same strip may be used several times.
Can I purchase post-wipes separately?
No, the post-wipes are not sold separately.

Any residue from the Nair™ Brazilian Spa Clay Wax Strips with Perfect Temp™ can simply and easily be removed from your skin with the post-wipes provided or with baby oil.
Are there different types of waxes?
Yes. The two main types are sugar and resin waxes. Sugar wax is water soluble, so residue easily rinses away. Resin wax is known for its ability to easily adhere to short hairs. Nair™ Ultimate Roll-On Wax is a resin wax, but leverages a breakthrough wax technology that also makes it water soluble.
What is the appropriate hair length that can be removed by waxing?
All wax forms differ in the lengths of hair which can be removed. Follow product use instructions for each specific product.

How quickly does the Shower Power™ technology work?
Nair™ Shower Power™ can work in as little as three minutes and total application time should never exceed 10 minutes.
How long do I have to wait between uses?
Wait 72 hours between uses.
Will Nair™ Shower Power™ formula affect how my hair grows back?
Nair™ Shower Power™ formula will not affect the rate at which one’s hair grows, nor the character or thickness of the hair shaft.
Does Nair™ Shower Power ™ depilatory have any effect on self-tanning products?
Nair™ depilatory exfoliates skin in addition to removing hair so using it before tanning will help you achieve an even tan.
Why do I have to massage in a circular motion to remove the cream?
It is a suggestion to achieve optimum results and ensure thorough rinsing of the product. The sponge has bumps that actually help with removing the hair. The circular motion allows the bumps to reach all hairs for more thorough hair removal.
I lost the sponge. Is it available to buy separately?
At this time, we do not offer the sponge as an individual item to purchase. We also recommend using a damp washcloth.
Why do I have to use the sponge to put the cream on? Can’t I just use my hands?
You can use your hands. The sponge applicator allows you to apply the cream without touching it. You can also use a washcloth.
How do depilatories work?
Depilatories contain ingredients that work by breaking the bonds of hair. The bonds give hair strength and structure, so when you break these bonds, the hair can easily be wiped away and removed.
Why is it beneficial for the skin to use hair removal rather than razor shaving?
Depilatory creams work by dissolving the hair just below the surface of the skin whereas shaving sharply cuts the hair off at the skin surface. This means you’re not left with unattractive prickly stubble. Also, Nair™ products help moisturize and exfoliate your skin.
Do depilatories also exfoliate?
Yes, Nair™ products remove unwanted hair and exfoliate the skin's surface.
How long do I have to wait between applications of Nair™ products?
We advise that you wait at least 72 hours between applications.
Will depilatories affect how my hair grows back?
No, depilatories do not affect the rate your hair grows back, nor the thickness of the hair shaft.
Can I sunbathe after using Nair™ products?
No. It is advised that you wait at least 24 hours before heading out into the sun. Always use a sunscreen.
Does Nair™ depilatory have any effect on self-tanning products?
Nair™ exfoliates skin in addition to removing hair, so using it before a self tanning product will help you achieve an even tan. Wait 24 hours between using Nair™ products and tanning.
Can I use a depilatory cream on my skin if I have a cut or abrasion?
No. It is advisable that your skin is clear from cuts or abrasions as you apply the cream.
Can I use other grooming products or toiletries on my skin after using hair removal creams? (E.g. anti-perspirants, perfumes, moisturizing or tanning lotions)
We advise that you wait at least 24 hours before using any of the above.
Why use Nair™ Lotion?
