Default Does anyone else pluck their nose hairs?

Or am I just weird? I don't understand what the function of nose hair is. Does it keep you from breathing in bad stuff or something?

Nose hairs are good, unless they peek out from your nostrils. I don't pluck my errant nose hairs, but I do shave them with a razor.

Plucking them hurts like a mother so I just trim them with a scissors.

Hell no. It hurts thinking about. Why not trim them? That's what I do.

I think trimming them will make them longer and thicker. Yank 'em out!

I pluck them when I need to wake up or if there is one sticking out of my nose. It hurts too much to pluck them just to pluck them.

Tweezing nose hair isn't painful. I actually think it feels kind of nice. I guess its a nervous habit for me like nail biting.

The thought of plucking nose hair makes me cringe OUCH. I use cuticle scissors on mine.

My best friend......I tell ya, she should use hedge trimmers! How do you tell someone that though;-)

If I pluck a hair from my right nostril, my right eye will turn red and tear up. Same with the left nostril. It also makes me want to sneeze for some strange reason. I just shave them with the shaver.

Don't pluck!!!!! it can lead to infections from the hair follicles that are damaged by this, and this area is what is called 'the triangle of death' (area from the bridge of the nose to the corner of the mouth) because here the infections drain into the brain and that can cause a clot in the cavernous sinus, that's not good!

I let them grow out and braid them. I have four beads on the left and six on the right. Are feathers too much?

Ok, I pluck too.

I rip mine out daily. They protrude out of my nostrils and it's annoying.
