Although the occasional nose hair is easy to remove with a pair of tweezers, if you have persistent nose hairs, you will probably need to take more proactive measures to get rid of these unsightly hairs. Fortunately, removing nose hairs effectively is a simple process and is generally painless.
Tweeze small or sparse hairs. If you only have a few stray nose hairs, the easiest way to get rid of them is to tweeze them. Carefully find the root of the nose hair you want to remove and then pull the tweezers straight down to pull out the hair.
Trim thicker nose hair patches. If you have more than just a few nose hairs, or you have sensitive skin, you can use a nose hair clipper or small scissors to cut the hair. When trimming, be careful not to cut too close to the skin so you don't accidentally cut yourself.
Use nose hair removal creme. If you have very thick nose hair problems and you cannot use a trimmer or scissors, there are nose hair creams available that can dissolve hairs. Apply this cream in a very thin layer along the skin inside your nose. Be very careful not to apply this creme too far into the nasal cavity, as serious damage can result. Wait the amount of time recommended by the manufacturers of the product, and then flush your nose with water to remove all the cream.
Do not attempt to remove hairs that are too far up in the nasal cavity. If you can't see the hair in your nostril, then it too far up and it is best to leave it alone.
