Nair Survey Cuts to the Root of the Problem

Millennial women hate shaving and are seeking alternative solutions, according to a survey conducted by Nair. To be more specific, 85% of millennial women hate shaving.

In addition, 50% of millennial women said unwanted body hair made them feel self-conscious, less confident or insecure. Younger millennials were more likely than older millennials—57% versus 48%—to feel less confident due to unwanted body hair.

Respondents said the biggest body hair offenders were the bikini line (72%), underarms (58%) and legs (52%). Additionally, 56% of respondents said shaving was time consuming, 44% said it irritates their skin and 72% said that the hair grows back too quickly.

In fact, respondents of the survey found unwanted body hair to be so problematic that 48% of them said they would give up coffee, 44% said they would give up Netflix, 39% said they would give up sex, and 38% said they would give up social media for a month to be free of unwanted hair for a year.
