Laser Hair Removal Advice for Black Skin

Laser Hair Removal Does Not Work on White Hair!

Many in the industry won’t share this with you. We hope the above short video is helpful to you, and offers you some solid advice on whether or not you’re a candidate for laser hair removal.

    Hi Eva, I have watched many of your videos on YouTube. They are very educational. I am a black female. I suffer from ingrown hairs and scarring from waxing and shaving over the years. I can’t afford to do laser right now but I also don’t like having hair on my intimates. Should I stop waxing and shaving and rather opt for trimming until I can afford to go fo laser hair removal? Or will it be ok continue waxing despite the ingrowns until I can afford to go for laser hair removal using the Yag cool glide.

      I think it’s better if you trim rather than waxing. If wax causes ingrowns, change the method. But CoolGlide is the ultimate solution for you. Wishing you an amazing Christmas and 2016. šŸ™‚

    Hi Eva,
    I read your note that laser doesn’t work on white hairs. Is there any solution for people with gray/white hairs?

      Hi, Kimberly: Honestly – the only other permanent hair reduction option is electrolysis. These videos I’ve made for my YouTube blog may help:


      I hope the above helps. Take good care!
