After watching the infomercial on the Home Shopping Network a few times, I thought I would take the plunge and try out the No No Hair System 8800. I got it through their web site so that I could get the 60 Day Trial promotion just to be sure. Although I wasn’t expecting to be hairless after 60 days, it would be enough time to get a good feel for it and decide whether I wanted to keep it.
The following review is based on the No No Hair System 8800 as opposed to the No No “Classic”, which is their original unit. I wanted a unit that I could use on my face, and the 8800 was it since the Classic is not recommended for the facial area. Although the No No Hair System 8800 ($270) is $20 more expensive than the Classic ($250), it is definitely worth the extra $20 to have the option to use it on my upper lip. In this review I try to cover every aspect of the product to answer the question does No No work, and help you make an educated decision.
No No Hair System Claims
- It’s pain free
- It costs less than laser systems
- It is safe for all skin types
- It is effective on all hair and skin colors
- You get up to 94% reduction in hair growth
It’s important to note that the No No Hair System is not a permanent hair removal system, nor is the length of time to see results as good as those of professional laser hair removal or electrolysis. And remember, professional laser hair removal is also not permanent. In any case, with repeated and continued use, No No Hair System does considerably lessen the density and growth of hair on all targeted areas. The thermal or heat technology used, directly affects the hair follicle and delays and disrupts future hair growth.
It’s been 4 months for me and I would say I’ve experience 80% hair reduction on my legs and 100% on my upper lip. That’s huge! I haven’t used it in any other area yet. Keep in mind, that the No No Hair System, like any other (heat, light or professional laser) hair removal system, it is often time consuming, with applications recommended 2-3 times weekly for a minimum of 8 weeks. Personally, this is not a big deal for me since I’m watching TV when I “no no”. toupee
The question is, does No No work or is it just a bunch of empty promises? Well, it may not be perfect, but I was happy to buy it after the 60 day trial period was over. Here’s why…
I got my No No Hair System in the mail 1 week after I placed my order from their website. The system comes with the unit itself, a charger, a quick user’s guide, an after treatment lotion, 2 hot blades (a small and a large), a handy carrying case, a skin buffer and a little cleaning brush so you can clean the blades and the unit head.
The first thing I noticed is that the 8800 is thinner and taller than the Classic (which my friend has). It is cordless so all you need is to charge it and you don’t have to spend money on buying batteries, which was a complaint a few people had about the “Classic”. Once you charge it, you unplug it and start using it. I mention that because some electronic stuff needs to be plugged in while you use it – the No No Hair System 8800 doesn’t. The unit has a display that shows how much battery life is left which is also handy since you don’t want to go dead in mid-treatment, charge it and then have to remember where you were last.
