Best ways to remove back hair by yourself and with help

It is sad but true that not everyone has a wife, girlfriend, boyfriend, partner or whoever to help remove back hair. If you have no-one to help, and you want to remove back hair, it is certainly the most difficult of all areas of the body to do on your own.

Over the years I have tried many methods to find the best way to remove back hair single-handed, most of which would have worked better had I been a contortionist!

For a while I even used a spaghetti spoon and taped a standard rechargeable electric trimmer to it!

Believe it or not that did actually work to some extent!

But don’t despair ….
if you are looking for the best way to remove back hair by yourself, there are now ways to achieve this without using a spaghetti spoon!

Do women like hairy backs?
Some do but in my experience the majority simply do not. In fact it is one of the biggest turn-offs for many women. Why do some men have hairy backs and others don’t? It is all a matter of genetics. So if you are unfortunate enough to have a hairy back, do yourself a favor (and your wife, girlfriend or partner) and use one of the methods below to remove it.

There are two methods of back hair removal without help that I have found worked well:

Electric hair removers with a back attachment:

These either have an adjustable handle, that the hair groomer clips in to, or they are specifically designed for use as a back shaver for men. You are then able to reach all areas of your back to remove the hair while you look into a mirror to see what you are doing.

There are two of these that I would personally recommend.

The first
, which I have used at home for almost three years, is the Philips Norelco Bodygroom Series 3100.

This comes with a clip-on back attachment.

The second
, which I keep in my RV to use when I am away on vacation, is the Mangroomer Lithium Max Back Shaver.

Both work extremely well when I have to tidy up my back by myself. To be honest, I would be hard pushed to say which of the two is the best for men’s back hair removal. There is little to choose between them, frankly.

Laser Hair Remover

If you have someone to help you then you may wish to consider the Braun Gillette Venus Silk-Expert IPL 5008. It is obviously pretty difficult to do this on your own.

The Braun laser hair removal machine has the advantage of making back hair grow less quickly or even stop completely.

Hair Removal Cream

There are a number of different hair removal creams on the market. Most work ok although some I have used either smelt really awful or they weren’t very kind to my skin.

The best back hair removal cream for men that I have used, with the most success, is the Dermology Hair Removal Cream.

I found this product was very kind to the skin on my back, unlike some others I bought in stores.

It is very easy and quick to use, without pain. It can just be washed off in the shower after it has done its work.

Bakblade Back Razor

This is a very good product for anyone not wanting to use electric trimmers or hair removal creams. It is well designed to allow you to reach all areas of the back.
