Try A New Approach To Hair Removal

IF you’re tired of shaving and other hair removal options and want smooth, hair-free skin, without the hassle and if laser is just too expensive or simply doesn’t work, give Hairfree a try. Hairfree is a new concept which gives you long-lasting hair removal – just like salon laser treatment! Do away with regular shaving, salon visits and painful treatments with an easy to use at-home hair removal.


How does it work?

Hairfree Hair Removal System is a topically applied hair removal cream with a difference. Most hair removal creams just get rid of surface hair. Hairfree dissolves hair above and below the surface of the skin. It is absorbed into the hair follicle and reacts with the matrix bulb of the hair root – the place where hair growth starts – to neutralise the hair root and stop hair growth. Each product in the Hairfree range is specifically formulated to target certain types of male and female facial and body hair and give you smooth, totally hairless skin.

How do I use it?

  1. Smooth a thin layer of cream over the hair to be treated
  2. Leave the cream on for 10-20 minutes to treat the hair root
  3. Scrape off. Rinse.

It takes only a few minutes to apply and see results. Apply the cream using your finger tips and spread on a layer about the thickness of a credit card. Repeat once a week, or (more frequently if you have fast growing hair) for 30 days until hair growth has significantly reduced. The active ingredients take approximately 4 – 5 days to neutralize hair roots and initiate reduction of new growth. Each time you use Hairfree approximately 25% – 30% less hair will grow back. After six to eight months of consecutive applications you should achieve long-lasting hair growth reduction in density and thickness.
