How to Use Nose and Ear Hair Trimmers
Ear hair trimmers (a.k.a. personal shavers, ear and nose hair trimmers, ear clippers and personal grooming shavers) are one of the most practical ways to deal with excess hair growing from your ears and nose, an unfortunate problem which happens to a lot of men as they get older and which can give an unsightly appearance if it is not removed.
Ear hair trimmers work on standard or rechargeable batteries and shave the excess hair close to the skin so that it does not sprout out of your ears and nose any more. These tools have a rounded end which can be inserted into the outer part of the ear or the nose to cut the hair growing from the ear canal or nostril and they are one of the safest ways of dealing with this hair which you can manage yourself in private.
Whatever model personal grooming tool you choose is bound to have instructions, so once you buy one follow these carefully, but just so you know what is involved in the process, here are some general nose and ear hair trimmer instructions to give you a good idea.
1. Make sure that your ear hair trimmer is clean and that it has plenty of power if you are using a rechargeable model or fresh batteries if you have a battery powered unit.
2. You will need a well-lit area and a mirror that you can tilt so that you can see your ears or nose as you work. Tilt your head and the mirror so that you can see your nostrils or the ear you are going to start with.
3. Clean the ear or nostrils with a cotton swab and use it to raise the hair a little to make it easier for cutting. Don't insert the swab right into the ear canal however in case you damage your ear.
4. When working on your ears, switch on the trimmer, and slip into the outer part of the ear, pulling on your ear a little to expose different parts of the the outer ear to the trimmer as you work. Don't put the trimmer into the ear canal however. It is better just to trim the hair that is most accessible and to do this regularly than to risk damaging your ear and hearing. Just get as close as you can to the base of the hair without going into the canal.
5. When trimming the hair from your nose insert the trimmer a tiny way into the nostril to trim the hair around the opening - there's no need to go right up your nose!
6. After you finish working on each ear or nostril, wipe it with a clean cotton swab to brush away any loose hair.
7. Clean the trimmer after each ear and nostril following the instructions. This is easier if you choose a wet and dry nose and ear trimmer like the Mangroomer as you can't damage the tool by getting it wet.
