Function of Nose Hair:

While our excessive nose hair may get enlisted as a great nuisance, they actually serve with couple of great purposes.

Silent Defender

We can’t see air, but still it’s not just something that blows and supplies you with oxygen. It’s full of objects ; including germs, fungus, spore, dust and tiny particles. When we inhale for oxygen, other objects also try to sneak in. But when the air enters our nose, the nasal hair prevents them from entering our respiratory system by catching and covering them with mucus layer.

Maintain air’s humidity

The air is full of objects. When we inhale air, harmful objects get trapped in nose hair and mucus stuck to those hair raise the temperature and moistened the air. That’s how the nasal hair participates on maintaining air’s humidity and thus make it acceptable for our respiratory system.


Now, since you know the importance of your nose hair, we hope you will better not try again to pluck the hair with a tweezer. And another thing, the hair inside your nose protects you from germs and fungus, not the one that hangs loose in the air. But they look gross. So instead of pulling the whole hair out, only snip the unnecessary part. And an electric trimmer would be the best choice for that.

Because there’s a possibility of cutting your skin when you use scissors and you also have to pay extra attention. On the other hand, trimmers are especially made for this job, so you will be able to get rid of the problem just like that. However, to trim, you will need a little preparation.

Disadvantages of cutting nose hair

Remember. Always trim the unnecessary hair, but never think of eliminating them completely. Nasal hair prevents germs, fungus, debris e.t.c. from going inside our body and maintain inhaled air’s humidity. If you don’t have enough nasal hair, you will be more likely to suffer from asthma and severe allergic problems.

It may also affect respiratory system.
Also, don’t pull the hair out of follicles, hollow follicles csn be infected, and so do the veins.
Since hair growth rate is slower among older people, it’d be better for them to reduce the trimming rate. Because it’ll take time to grow them back.


Always be careful while trimming to avoid cutting and ingrown hair problem. Also clean nostrils with washcloth again to clean trimmed hair bits to avoid itchiness. Use spray or nasal drops when nostrils get dry because of trimming.
