Hair removal forum

Hairfacts is my main site. It’s based on verifiable hair removal facts you can go check yourself.

 HairTell is about consumer experiences with hair removal, which are often not possible to verify and are not scientific. Although most consumers here are honest and helpful, due to the nature of the internet, a few bad apples might be giving bogus hair removal information. I invite you to head to the  hair removal forums and register for free!
