No!No! Pro is advertised as a painless and effective hair removal product, and is said to allow the consumer to go weeks without shaving. Read our NoNo Pro reviews from editors and readers.
About NoNo Pro
NoNo Pro is a hair removal system. It does not use a laser some some competing products, but via a heated wire termed “pulsed thermicon technology.” The official website is nonopro.com, which was registered on February 7, 2013. The original NoNo is also still advertised at trynono.com, which was registered on July 31, 2008.
How Much Does NoNo Pro Cost?
The original NoNo costs about $285. There are now two new “Pro” models:
- Pro3: 3 payments of $96.65 + $14.95 shipping, for a total of $304.90
- Pro5: 3 payments of $103.31 + $14.95 shipping, for a total of $324.90
NoNo 8800 vs NoNo Pro
The Pro version of NoNo is said to have 35% more power than the original, which they say will allow you to “remove coarse and thick hair more effectively than ever before.” The new version also has a status screen, a more comfortable grip, and their “new patented Pulsed Thermicon technology.”
NoNo Pro3 vs NoNo Pro5
The only difference between the Pro3 and Pro5 models is the number of settings. Pro3 has three treatment levels, and the Pro5 have five treatment levels.
Our NoNo Pro Review
We had several testers try out a NoNo Pro unit, and the overall consensus is that it is not superior to shaving or waxing. Our testers reported a distinct smell of burning hair while using the unit. Although they claim it works for all hair types, we found that it works better on certain hair types. Those with finer, lighter hair reported slightly better results than those with thick, coarse hair. There was never a sense that any of our testers felt their skin was smooth and stubble-free while using the product. Another concern rarely mentioned is the time investment, as each session requires more time and patience than most people might expect.
Although billed as painless, we found the NoNo Pro does provide a sensation that, to some, could be described as painful. This sensation varies based on the user’s pain threshold. Some testers describe it is prickly, while we also heard complaints that it created a burning sensation.
Other NoNo Pro Reviews
Consumer Reports reviewed the NoNo 8800 in their December 2013 issue. None of their six testers said their legs felt hair-free or stubble-free during a six-week trial, and none “said they’d want to buy the device.”
On Amazon, as of February 17, 2014, 65% of reviewers ranked it one star (286 out of 442 total). Only 11.5% rank it five stars (49 out of 426 reviews).
We did not find NoNo Pro to be effective and we do not recommend this product over other hair removal options. There are far too many user complaints to be ignored, and our tests confirmed that the product does not work for everyone.
