Dealing with unwanted hair can be frustrating, especially if you regularly deal with ingrown hairs. If you’re not into shaving, waxing, sugaring, epilating, or chemically burning off your hair, you can always try semi-permanent laser hair removal. Though this was once only available through salons, with the right tools, a mind toward safety, and a bit of research, you can zap your follicles in your bathroom. Here’s a list of at-home options.
