No! No! Hair is a small device that uses heat to remove body hair. It's advertised as a painless solution that lasts longer than shaving or waxing. The manufacturer also claims that after using the device for a while, new hair growth will be both finer and less abundant.
Many reviewers have put No! No! Hair to the test; the results are a mix of love it and hate it. The primary complaint in reviews is that there is a time commitment; when first using No! No! Hair, it can take 20-30 minutes per day a few times a week to remove all of your current unwanted body hair, and it can be several weeks before users start seeing a reduction in new hair growth.
Many users find this to be a deal breaker. Those who don't mind investing the time see better results, though some still question if the results are worth the price. Some dissatisfied customers say that No! No! Hair doesn't work at all on coarse hair, and a few have also gotten ingrown hairs after using the device. Both happy and unhappy customers agree that the process is painless, but they also mention that there is an unpleasant smell of burning hair when using No! No! Hair.
Affiliate station WGHP in Greensboro, N.C., tries out No! No! Hair with two volunteers. While it works to initially remove hair, after using it for six weeks neither volunteer sees any difference in new hair growth. The editor of BellaSugar.com uses No! No! Hair for a couple of months and is relatively pleased with her results, though she does mention the massive time commitment she had to make. Reviewers on Sephora.com have strong opinions on both sides, with some loving their results and others seeing little to no reduction in new hair growth at all.
Amazon.com reviewers are overwhelmingly dissatisfied, with many saying that No! No! Hair doesn't work on coarse hair and that they see no reduction in new hair growth. HSN.com reviewers are more mixed; some don't mind investing the necessary time and are happy with what they see, while others find the amount of time required ridiculous and say No! No! Hair doesn't even work on coarse hair.
Bottom line? No! No! Hair seems to work for most people -- eventually -- but the time commitment and cost of purchase aren't worth it for many.

Reporter Melissa Painter and two volunteers test No! No! Hair in a Deal or Dud test. On initial use all three women agree that the device is easy to use and pain-free, but they complain about the terrible smell of burning hair. When Painter checks back in with the volunteers after six weeks of using No! No! Hair, they are both disappointed, saying that they see no difference in the amount or thickness of the hair growing back. No! No! Hair is deemed a Dud.
Review: Hair Removal Device, Melissa Painter, April 20, 2011
The editor of BellaSugar.com, the beauty-focused site in the Sugar Inc. network, uses No! No! Hair for a couple of months. She finds using the device time-consuming, but she does see results when she puts in the time. Using the device for 20 to 30 minutes per day a few times a week has left her with significantly less hair growth, but she's not totally hairless. She does comment on the unpleasant smell of burning hair that comes with first using No! No! Hair, though it does diminish the more she uses it since there is less hair to deal with.
