Waxing or plucking ear and nasal hair is not recommended. Pulling out individual hairs can lead to ingrown hairs and even infection, while waxing could hurt the delicate skin deep inside your ear and nose. The best method is trimming.
Depending on your method, trimming, thinning, and removing ear and nasal hair can be safe, but you don’t want to overdo it. The small hairs in your ears and nose serves as a filter for dirt, dust and allergens. Nose hair also helps to add and retain moisture in the air you breathe.
Trimming ear and nose hair is the safest and most accessible option for most people. Trimming hair in these delicate areas allows you to slowly remove or shorten just the most visible nose hair without removing too much or hurting the delicate skin inside.
Wahl Ear and Nose Trimmers use a circular clipper (rotary head) to cut the hair. Simply place it in your nose or ear and turn on the trimmer. The hairs sit between the blade guard and the clipper and painlessly remove the hair, resulting in well-groomed nose and ear canals. Our personal trimmers also have rinseable heads for hygienic use every time.
