Hair inhibitors

If  you have sensitive skin, it inadvisable to use temporary methods like depilatory creams or waxing . In many places it is difficult to find a trained person to do electrolysis or hair reduction using laser, so many use home remedies for hair removal. The effectiveness of these methods is not checked by scientific studies, but these methods have been used for centuries

 

Make a paste of yogurt + besan (gram flour) + haldi (turmeric).

Rub the paste gently on the area with hair and leave it for 15-20 minutes till the paste is dried.

 Then rub the paste away in the direction opposite to the hair growth.

Apply baby oil to soothe the skin

Instead of  the besan + turmeric paste,  turmeric alone can be applied but besan tightens the skin when dried. Yoghurt/curds can be substituted by milk.  If you have oily skin, water or rose water should be used instead of curd and milk. To reduce yellowness of the skin, facial turmeric (Kasturi manjal or Gopuram Turmeric powder) should be used instead of food turmeric.

The turmeric+besan paste method of hair removal has to be followed regularly for a period of  a few months before it is effective. It is used on babies and small children as conventional hair removal methods are very harsh

 

Another variation of  the paste

Ingredients: Haldi Powder - 1/4 Tablespoon, Papaya Powder 1/4 Tablespoon, Besan 1/4  Tablespoon,  Mustard oil 2 Tablespoon,  AloeVera Gel( Thin) 4 Tablespoon, Lavender or other Essential Oil 2 drops

The paste should be applied in the opposite direction to hair growth. Should be applied thrice a week for 3 months to be effective.
