Nose hairs can be unsightly, but unfortunately, we need them. Individuals who do not have a lot of nose hair actually are at a higher risk of developing asthma during their life. Plucking nose hair is not a good idea, but using a nose trimmer is a great way to ensure that those unsightly whiskers do not grow past the edge of the nostril. This guide will walk through what to look for when purchasing a new nose trimmer.
Size and Comfort
Another important consideration to make concerns the size of the nose trimmer. Not everyone will be taking this device on trips with them, so the portability of the unit may not be as important to them, but for some, it may need to fit into a small space inside of a suitcase. The other reason that size is important is because no one wants to trim their nose hairs with a big bulky tool that makes it twice as difficult to trim the hair.
Compact design allows for easy storage as well. In fact, most nose hair trimmers can easily fit inside of a medicine cabinet. Trimmers for nose hairs do come in a number of shapes and sizes, so make sure to find one that is easy to grip, especially if it is a waterproof device that will be used in the tub.
Now, even though the main purpose of a nose trimmer is to trim the hair in your nose, sometimes this device comes as an additional head for the beard trimmer. Some of the best beard and nose trimmer kits are:
- Remington PG6171 The Crafter: Beard Boss Style and Detail Kit – it has 11 different attachments to give anyone who uses this full kit control over how much hair they have on their body
- Philips Norelco Multigroom Series 3100 Beard Trimmer
Individuals who purchase these devices want more accessories to be included so that they can be used for other trimming needs as well. A lot of trimmers come in a three-in-one style, but sometimes these designs do not function as well as a designated nose trimmer, so make sure to do research before making a purchase.
Sometimes, females need nose trimmers too, and a few years ago, Courtney Cox let her fans in on a little secret about which nose trimmer she uses: Panasonic Swing Head.
Type of Trimmer Head
The first consideration to make when purchasing a new nose hair trimmer is the type of trimmer head that is needed. There are three common trimmer head options available today:
– A Rotary Trimmer Head
This is the most popular option of the three types. It features a small, stubby tip that is simple to get into the tip of a nose or an ear and trim the hair. The tip is not long enough to reach too far into the nose, which means that it is nearly impossible to be injured while using the device. Under the tip, there are two razor blades that trim the hair.
– A Foil Guard Trimmer
This device is designed just like a foil guard razor, but the bladed edge is sideways so that it can easily trim hairs inside of the nose. The blade of this unit is located under the guard for additional protection.
– A Side Action Trimmer
This is a trimmer that is positioned on the back of a beard trimmer. It is convenient for those who want a two-in- one device, but this type of trimmer is not often designed as a dedicated nose trimmer.
Batteries or Electric
Some nose hair trimmers are designed to be plugged into an outlet, while others run on battery power alone. Most of the ones that require batteries utilize AA or AAA batteries to function. Unfortunately, these devices also tend to use the batteries quickly, so having a spare or two on hand could be beneficial. Micro Touch MAX Hair Trimmer, a battery-powered option, has one unique feature, a light that illuminates the area being trimmed.
Easy to Clean
When searching for a nose trimmer, one of the things that are important to consider is how easy the device is to clean. Some trimmers may be difficult to trim when longer hair is involved, so if that will be a concern, make sure to take it into consideration.
Some nose trimmers are waterproof, which means that they can be rinsed out with water when they need to be cleaned, but others take a bit more effort. In fact, if the trimmer is not waterproof, the head and the blade will need to be removed to be cleaned properly. Fortunately, cleaning brushes are included to make the job simpler.
Plucking your nose hair is not sanitary; in fact, plucking the hair from your nostrils can lead to infection. This is why a nose trimmer that leaves a bit of hair inside your nostrils for protection is a great tool to own. Hopefully, this guide has helped single out the features to look for before making a purchase.
