Using razors to remove hair
Razors are handy, there's no doubt about it. They're not too expensive, easy to use, and perfect for last-minute, emergency hair removal. You can use them all over your body, even on pubic hair. Some would say, they're the best hair remover out there. That being said, there are downsides to razors.
Ingrown hairs, razor rash and increasingly spiky hair will leave you frustrated and embarrassed by the areas hair removal was meant to make you confident about.
How to shave with a razor
1. Invest in quality equipment
Depending on how frequently you're shaving, it could be worth your while to invest in a quality piece of kit.
2. Trim the hair
If you're shaving particularly bushy areas, you should begin by trimming the hair. You can use a pair of scissors or a specialised trimmer. This will help you get a closer shave.
3. Use a sharp blade
When shaving any part of your body, you should avoid using a dull blade. Dull blades can cause skin irritation and stop you from getting a close shave. To ensure that you're using a sharp enough blade, check out our guide for replacing razors below.
4. Wet the skin
Before shaving, it is best to wet the skin. If you're shaving your legs, bikini line or underarm, you can do this in the shower or bath. Simply soak the areas in warm water for a few minutes before shaving.
Exfoliating helps to get smoother results and reduce the chances of skin irritation or ingrown hairs. Use a loofah or a scrub in a circular motion to gently exfoliate the areas you wish to shave.
But should you exfoliate or shave first? Find out now!
WARNING: Do not exfoliate or use any products in intimate areas.
6. Use a shaving foam or gel
Lathering on a shaving foam or gel will not only help you to see which areas have been shaved but it will also help the blade to move smoothly across your skin.
7. Shave with gentle strokes
Now, you can start shaving! Always go steadily to avoid cutting your skin and try to shave in as few strokes as possible. The more you go over the same area, the more irritation you will cause. It's best to shave in the direction of hair growth, but this does not always get the closest shave. If you'd prefer, you can shave "against the grain".
To get the best shave possible, it's important to rinse off your blade between strokes. Hair can quickly build up on the blades, making it harder to get a clean shave. Once you have finished shaving, take the time to rinse the blades thoroughly, removing any hair and foam.
You should also take care to rinse your skin, preferably with cool water to help close the pores and soothe the area.
9. Pat dry
Setting your razor aside to dry, you should now pat your skin dry with a clean towel.
Now that your skin is dry, you can go ahead and apply a moisturiser, oil or post-shave balm. The soap in shaving gels and foams can be drying, so it's important to nourish your skin for beautiful results.
How often should I replace my razor?
You may be wondering how long you should use a razor before replacing it. The answer depends on how often you shave, the quality of your blades, and how well you look after them.
As a rule of thumb, a razor should last you between 7-14 uses. It can be hard to keep track of how often you use your blade, so this guide may help:
- If you shave daily, you should replace your razor every 1 to 2 weeks.
- If you shave every other day, you should replace your razor every 2 to 3 weeks.
- If you shave twice a week, you should replace your razor every 4 to 6 weeks.
Other signs that it is time to replace your razor include:
- The blades are rusty
- You notice it pulling on your hair
- You find the area itchier than normal after shaving
Hair removal cream
Have you ever tried using hair removal cream? It's something most of us experiment with at some point in our lives. Unlike razors, hair removal cream won't leave you with a razor burn.
There are some cons to using it, though. Like shaving, hair removal cream will only remove hair above the skin's surface. This means you'll probably see regrowth after a couple of days. Another problem with the cream is that it can be tricky to apply, and the 10-minute wait time can be equally as tasking. Finally, it's not a form of natural hair removal and it can have a bit of an unpleasant smell.
Hair removal cream definitely isn't a quick fix, but it can produce smoother results than shaving if you're prepared to put the effort in.
How to use hair removal cream
To use hair removal cream, you should always follow the instructions on the packet. The process normally involves:
- Evenly applying the cream to coat the hair.
- Washing the excess cream off of your hands.
- Waiting for the recommended amount of time - check the packaging!
- Testing a small area to see if enough time has passed.
- Removing the cream and hair, and rinsing your skin clean.
Waxing can be the most expensive and most painful hair removal option you can go for, but many people would say it's worth it.
Wax pulls hair from the root, leaving you with flawless results that last the test of time. Although it can be painful at first, thanks to a combination of reduced hair growth and your skin becoming used to the process, the pain does decrease over time.
Waxing may provide great results but, as it's a costly and timely process, it's impractical for many of us to get done regularly. If you're short for time and money, you could just get waxed before holidays and special events.
Tips for getting waxed
1. Grow your hair out
You should make sure that your hair is a good length for the wax to grip to. You should aim for about 1/4 inch, which is about the size of a grain of rice. If it's any longer than that, the beautician may trim the hair before getting started.
It takes about 3 weeks to grow your hair to this length, so make sure you stop shaving in advance of your appointment.
2. Prep your skin
It's a good idea to have a warm shower before getting a wax. While showering, you should exfoliate your skin using a body scrub or a loofah. Prepping your skin in this way will help to open the pores and prevent ingrown hairs.
After your shower, leave your skin "naked". Don't apply any moisturisers, fake tan or oils and try to avoid deodorants or perfumes, too.
Your beauty salon might provide you with an after-wax gel or lotion to soothe the area. If they don't, we'd suggest buying some in advance. It'll help keep everything smooth and free from irritation.
It's a good idea to wear loose clothing to allow the skin to breathe, and you should also avoid sunbathing, saunas and steam rooms for a couple of days after.
Natural hair removal remedies
Natural hair removal? Yes, you heard that right!
Believe it or not, there are some natural remedies that can slow down hair growth, reduce body hair, and even remove it completely.
We've rounded up 6 of the best below for you to try yourself, in the comfort of your own home.
1. Hair removal using sugar wax
Sugar wax has been used around the world for many years, but it's only recently become popular in the UK.
What exactly is sugar wax? Exactly what it says on the tin...only there is no tin because it's completely homemade. In fact, you can whip up your own sugar wax at home using:
- 200g sugar
- 60ml lemon juice
- 60ml water
Before you get started, check out our tips for waxing above. Even with a natural, at-home method, the same tips still apply.
- Add the ingredients to a saucepan on the hob, and stir to combine. Begin to heat, slowly bringing the mixture to a boil.
- Once it boils, simmer the ingredients on a low to medium heat, stirring frequently. Once the mixture has turned golden brown in colour, it's time to remove the pan.
- Pour the ingredients into a jar and leave to cool for around 30 minutes.
- Spoon some of the wax into your hands, and roll it into a ball.
- Make sure the area of skin you want to remove hair from is clean and dry, then begin to spread the wax over it.
- Let it sit for a minute, then lift a corner of the sugar wax (enough to give you a good grip).
- Get ready...and rip the wax off in the opposite direction of your hair growth.
- Post-waxing, clean the area to remove any residue.
2. Natural hair removal at home using a pumice stone
Turns out there's another use for your pumice stone that doesn't involve feet at all (unless you have very hairy feet that is!) - natural hair removal.
The rough texture of pumice stone is great for catching hairs and removing them from your skin. Better yet? This is a 100% natural hair removal remedy.
To try it yourself, use a dry pumice stone on clean, dry skin in small circular motions. The pores will cling onto hairs and pull them out.
Be sure to moisturise afterwards, as the texture of a pumice stone also provides an exfoliating effect and may leave the skin dry.
3. Natural hair removal remedy using egg
Want to remove facial hair naturally? Eggs are not only extremely nutritious, but they have some useful properties when it comes to beauty, too.
Perhaps you've seen egg dry before and noticed how it creates a film-like substance on the surface it sets on. It's this power you're going to harness when using egg for hair removal.
To try it yourself, you'll need:
- 1 egg white
- 1 tbsp sugar
- 1/2 tbsp cornflour
- Mix the ingredients together to combine, then apply a thin layer to clean, dry skin.
- Leave the mixture to set on your face (around 15-20 minutes). It should form a film.
- Begin to peel the mask off from the out in. The mask will not only extract impurities, but it will also lift light facial hair.
Eggs are an inexpensive and gentle way of treating unwanted facial hair. It's especially popular for getting rid of that unwanted peach fuzz above your upper lip. Why not give this natural hair removal remedy a try today?
4. Remove unwanted hair using papaya paste
If you're looking for a long-term solution, you may want to consider Papaya.
A study by the International Journal of Pharmaceutics found that the enzyme called papain has a "depilatory" (hair removing) effect. This enzyme is found inside Papaya. Although it won't remove hair overnight, it could reduce regrowth over time.
Sound too good to be true? Try this natural hair removal remedy at home and see the results for yourself.
- 1-2 tbsp mashed, raw papaya flesh
- 1/2 tsp Turmeric powder
- Mix together the papaya and turmeric to form a paste.
- Rub onto the skin liberally, massaging the mixture in so it reaches hair follicles.
- Leave for 15 minutes.
- Wash off with water.
- Repeat regularly to see a reduction in hair growth (2-3 times per week).
Papaya not only smells delicious but could be a permanent solution to your unwanted body hair too. Who'd have thought it!
5. How to remove hair at home using turmeric
Turmeric is a bright yellow, fragrant spice, often found in Indian recipes.
Outside of the kitchen, Indian women have used it for many years for all sorts of natural beauty remedies. One such remedy is the removal of unwanted facial hair, and it's surprisingly easy to do!
We know what you're thinking... does Tumeric really remove hair permanently? A 2017 study in Phytomedicine found that curcuma, the active ingredient in turmeric, slowed hair growth and lightened the skin.
Want to try this DIY?
- Mix 3 tsp turmeric powder with 1 tsp milk.
- Spread the paste onto the area of skin with unwanted facial hair in the same direction as hair growth.
- Leave until dry (about 20 minutes).
- Add a small amount of water to hands, wet the paste slightly, and begin to scrub the skin using small, circular motions.
- Wash with lukewarm water and pat dry.
Like papaya, turmeric paste must be used regularly to reduce the rate of hair growth over time. Keep at it, and you'll be facial-hair free before you know it.
Next up, take a look at our guide on how to make facial hair grow faster.
How many days do these methods take to remove hair?
The results will vary from person to person. In the case of waxing, the results are instant.
Can these methods be used for removing chest hair?
Yes, these methods are suitable for chest hair.
Where can I buy turmeric powder?
Turmeric powder can be purchased in the spice section of most supermarkets.
How can I fix dark underarms?
Mix 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar with equal parts baking soda. Apply the mixture to the darkened area, leave to dry and then rinse off.
How can I remove turmeric staining?
Apply coconut oil to the skin to remove the yellow stains.
What is the best natural hair removal method?
The best natural method depends on the results you want to achieve. If you want fast results without the mess, using a razor will be the best option. For a long term solution, you might want to consider the papaya treatment.

Hi there! Tumeric would be the most effective.

I wish to know if ripe papaya can be use in place of raw one I also wish to know if tumeric which is not in powdered form can be use
Hi Stephanie! We'd suggest only using raw papaya and powdered turmeric.
What's raw papaya
Hi Lacey! Raw papaya is the green variation. Raw papaya has a higher concentration of papain than when it is ripe, making it better for natural hair removal.
Hi there Joanne! I am going to give this a try today and realize now that perhaps by "raw" you don't mean uncooked... you actually mean "the papaya flesh is so unripe that it is still green on the outside and white flesh and white seeds on the inside" (in American terms). Whereas we are used to looking for the ready-to-eat stage that is a fragrant vibrant yellow and orange color with black seeds inside. Is that correct? Thanks in advance for your patience while I try to figure out this economical and promising new tip :) !!!
Yay! Thanks so much for such a quick response!! Appreciate it... Can't wait to get started!! Going with the Papaya and Turmeric method. Blessings!!
If a woman is suddenly growing facial hair, there must be a hormonal imbalance, correct? Why not start with finding out what's wrong and trying to bring balance back to the body? I'd love to see an article on that. ;)
We could look into that! Thanks for getting in touch, Patti.
Just wanted to add, I have an imbalance of hormones and once you start to grow the hair you can't stop it. There are hormone balancers and Vaniqa cream by RX to stop the hair or papya paste, but once the hair is there it is there to stay. If you only have a few or a ligth peach fuzz I urge you to leave it. I did not leave my fuzz and now have a full blow under beard and side burns. SMH 42yrs old and I started removal at age 21 when it became a joke when out with friends and guys.
Thank you for sharing your experience with us. It's important to understand that hormonal imbalances can cause unwanted hair growth, and there are ways to manage it through medication and topical treatments.

DOES HAIR REMOVE PERMANANTLY? GROWTH STOP FOR LIFETIME?
Hi there. Which method are you enquiring about, Kuntal?
Is the sugar wax useful for chest hair of men
Hi Sankha! If you're feeling brave, then certainly.
Hi, i am wondering if I can just blend a whole raw papaya and keep it for use, will the papaya loose its chemical strength? Also, can i mix papaya and turmeric and use as a paste? How often should i use either mix?
Blending a whole raw papaya and keeping it for use may cause it to lose its potency and spoil over time. To make a papaya and turmeric paste, blend a small amount of papaya with a teaspoon of turmeric powder and use it once a week or every two weeks.
Hello, I was wondering if you can freeze your unused raw papaya and use it again for future use with the turmeric powder hair removal regimen?
You certainly can, Jessi!
Should I use the papaya seeds as well, or just the flesh? Thank you.
Hi there, Debra! You just need the flesh.
Hi! For the sugar wax method, is it brown sugar or white?
Hi Sydney! Typically this method uses white sugar.
can these methods also be used for under arm hair or pubic hair?
Hi there, Pam! These methods should work for those areas, though you may want to avoid the scrubs for the pubic area. Always do a patch test and take care to avoid any infections.
Hi, I have always been curious about pumice stones, you mean it takes off the root? I heard the advantage it's much less painful than waxing, epilating and sugaring (which is in turn less painful because it does not adhere to the skin) :), or it just consume the hair shaft but for some reasons it lasts much more? This has me gently skeptic, because doesn't any hair shaft shortened for whatever cause, grow back again to it's specific length, although it's a myth that it gets any thicker (it's just cut blunt, hence uglier and apparently thicker ^_-)? Does hair stay resting for longer time as if it hasn't been cut?
Hi there! It's a very gradual method and can take some time to see results, but over time hair regrowth should diminish with regular use.
Does the tumeric powder have any side effect
Hi Stellz! As it's only applied to the skin, it shouldn't do.
Wow! Girl you patience is endless! I mean it. I started fuming after reading ten comments , thinking people can be this stupid that they don't know what turmeric is or other meaningless questions. Your patience is award-winning. ☺️ Love from Pakistan.
That's very kind of you to say, Saeyka! We hope you found the article useful.
Hey can I use turmeric for my body hairs😅😅😅
Hi there! Yes, you can.
Hi there. I was born yesterday so what is a turmeric and a ripe papaya? Can I just ingest them or it’s more effective for external use as mentioned? 👁👁👄
Hi Anita! Tumeric is a spice and papaya is a fruit. It's best to apply externally as mentioned.
Can i use sugar and 🍋 lemon paste to remove unwanted hair in my moutaches permanently
Hi Adnan! Are you referring to the sugar wax method? This should work for facial hair too.

Hi K! Yes, most of these methods should work even if you shave the hair off after.

Hi Rodica! We haven't heard of this method. Could you tell us more?
Hi...I want to ask u this natural remedies papaya and turmeric can remove hairs that comes after waxing for lifetime...??
Hi Misha! The results will vary from person to person, but they should be long-lasting.
hey, about the papaya and tumeric method, will the hairs will detach and fall or will the hairs be sucked in and disappear?
Hi Lydia! This method probably won't remove the hair from the skin, but it will reduce the amount of regrowth.
So what should i do to remove it first ?
You can remove the hair after applying the mixture using whatever method you prefer. This could be shaving, waxing, etc. You should find that by repeating this method, over time the hair will regrow less.
Can you use a ninja to puree the papaya to make into a paste or should you just smash it?
Hi Elishia! Either will work just fine.

I will be really thankful to you.
Hi there! It should work on all of those areas, though I wouldn't advise applying it directly to the genital area. It will not remove the hair, but it will stop it from growing back over time.
Hey does it work on thick hair on legs
It should do, though the results may vary from person to person.
Hi I’m a vegan, is it necessary to use Animal products with the turmeric and papaya?

Hi Amzi! We'd stick to 2-3 days. You should see results over time.
Are these natural hair removers permanent?
Hi Caroline! The results will vary from person to person. If you keep up with regular treatments, you should see long-lasting results.
I just want to ask that if we remove facial hairs will they come again or not??
You should see a reduction in regrowth. The results will differ from person to person.
Is shaving a menopausal moustache a bad idea? I've been doing this and swear I'm getting a 5 o'clock shadow in that area. Is this true or just my imagination? Anyhow, I'm going to start using facial hair strips for longer lasting results.
Hi there. This might well be the case because shaving will leave the hairs thicker and blunter in appearance. Waxing is a better alternative - and will last longer, as you said!
good advice, how often are you supposed to use turmeric and ripe pawpaw, are you supposed to apply any cream?
Hi there! About 2-3 times a week, but it's entirely up to you.
Hi, I don't have much hair for a male, but like many still have some superfluous hair on my shoulders and feet, so at the turn of summer, clothes start to get much lighter and less covering, socks are worn less often, deeper and wider scoop and v- necks, boat necks on lighter t - shirt or long sleeves, I don't really like the look of it , while I don't mind it elsewhere so I usually tell this hair off with the razor every 3 - 4 days, without problems, and I go on till fall, when I start wearing heavier clothes and socks full time again and pretty much stop. Would you suggest starting with this pumice stone, while hair is still a bit softer and resting spared from recent shaves (except a trim might come handy before the abrasion)? Can i find these on ebay or such? Thanks so much.
Yes, that sounds like a good idea. You can find them online or in drugstores. Be sure to let us know how you get on.
Hello I would like to ask about the sugar wax, is it effective specifically on the legs area? Thank you and have a good day.
Hi Wendy! It is very effective and can be used just like normal wax.
Hi I have dark under arms could u suggest any remedies or cream to get rid of that
Hi Lekha! Some people use apple cider vinegar and baking soda. They mix 2 teaspoons of each together and then apply the mixture to the darkened area. Leave it to dry and then rinse off.
Will the sugar wax method stop hair regrowth????
Hi Caroline! It won't be permanent.
Hi Joa!! Is there any way to stop the re-growth completely. I am having many hairs in the lower lip. Mostly am using turmeric but that's not effective for my skin..
Hi Jay! It's pretty impossible to put a complete stop to re-growth, but you could try some form of laser treatment.
Hi I'm having a hard time with hairs on the chin.what can I do about this?
Hi Laura! What have you tried so far?
Do you use the Papaya and Tumeric powder method before or after you shave/wax..?
Hi Sophia! It's best to use it after.
Hi! Can I ask you if we there any effect if we change the method. Like for this week I used the raw papaya and turmeric powder and for the next week I will use the egg method. Will this way remove the hair or I should stick with one method only. Thank you
Hi Wendy! I can imagine that it would be better to continue with 1 method only, but you will probably still see results from trying a different method each week.
Hello there, Been reading the comments and couldn't see if anyone asked about this. do i remove my hair before or after applying these mixtures particularly the turmeric and milk one. Also does shaving or using an epilator make a difference? Thanks so much P.s. love your patience reading through
Hi there! You can remove the hair before or after, it shouldn't make much of a difference.
So can women get rid of hair they have at ANY part of their bodies using pumice stone...? Any proof?
Hi Grace! I'd say this works best on fine hairs rather than coarse hairs.
can tumeric be available in Nigeria? and with papaya it can get rid of hair in the neck,jaw,face and legs?
Hi! Tumeric is a spice and should be available all around the world.
I accidentally used a hair grower soap on my body when i was a kid then, the hair grows after shaving it for 3 times in my life. Would this remedy work?
Hi there! Which remedy are you referring to?
A note on using turmeric: using it on your face will make your skin look yellow after it has been removed.
Yes, turmeric can dye the skin temporarily, but you can use coconut oil to remove it.
What is the difference between Raw Papaya and Ripe Papaya? We grow them in our garden and so have access to both.
Hi Mark! Raw papaya is the green variation. Raw papaya has a higher concentration of papain than when it is ripe, making it better for natural hair removal.
I tried the sugar wax and I kind of made a mess everywhere. I tried to rip the wax back but it wasn't hard enough and just got stuck in sticky blobs all over my hands and the area I was trying to wax. I did 'cook' it until it was golden brown and was able to roll it into a solid ball, but it was a little on the soft side. I have never waxed before so forgive me, but what did I do wrong?
Hi Aaria! It sounds like you might have added a little too much water?
Is it egg, sugar and cornflower or corn flour? If it is cornflower where do I find that ingredient?
Apologies for that typo. It should be "cornflour". Hope that helps!
Is turmeric powder and milk really help??? If yes So in how many days it will work ?? Helo me if u can😊
Hi there! I can't give a definitive amount of time, because the results will vary for each person. You should expect to see a change in a matter of months - hair will still grow back, but it will be much thinner and will take longer to grow. This is definitely not the fastest method for hair removal, but it is all-natural!
hi, will the egg one be able to work on legs?
Hi Julissa! Yes, it will work on legs.
Hey there Im sorry for the dum question but what it "tsp" i understand its the amount of the ingredients.. but not sure what it means And also is there any natural method beside the sugar wax shaving or apilating that actually remove the hair and not just slow down his growth?
Hi Nitsan! Tsp stands for teaspoon. You could try a laser hair removal treatment, but these aren't technically natural and they don't remove the hair, just stops it from growing back in the long term.
Is unripe papaya good for it if the ripe is nt available
Raw papaya has a higher concentration of papain than when it is ripe. Papain will help to reduce hair growth.
I am scared to try the turmeric method as my skin is some how sensitive and I am afraid it leaves a color and if the the color stays on my skin how to get rid of it without coconut oil as its not available right now in the store
Hi Nancy! You could try one of the other methods, not using turmeric?
Can i use for ear hair removal
Hi Sandy! We would advise against using these methods inside the ear.
Hey dear, would you mind telling How can I wax I mean what sort of cloth can I use
Hi there! No cloth is needed for the sugar wax method.
Hi I am a big fan of you Thanks for your valueble information😊😊😊👑👑
That's so kind, Jerin! Thanks for the feedback.
Hii I have one question this remedies can be use in unbrow? Please tell me I want to know
Hi Rameshwar! These methods should work on eyebrows, but be careful to avoid contact with the eye area.
Hello I would like to see some comments of people that done this and it worked for them and maybe some pictures.
HI so what do you think is the most efficient and fastest natural process not counting the egg method
Hi there! The most efficient is probably the sugar wax method. It works just as waxing does, but using natural ingredients.
I'm Satya from India. Your article is very useful and my question is that I have too much hair, on my back, my shoulder, little bit on biceps and hand, chest and stomach, and of course on legs and hips too. So, for which method I should go. I think waxing should be too painful, and if I go for papaya turmeric paste and shaving again and again in every 2-3 days how much time it gonna take to completely rid out of it. At least it goes down by 50-60%. 6 months? A year or 2-3 years. Thanks & best regards Satya Prakash Sinha
Hi there! It'll vary for each person.
What's you suggestions about laser hair removal??
What would you like to know, Satya?
Hello! For the egg method, is it brown sugar or white sugar? Thanks
Either will work, Ellen!
H i ok so I understand that papaya prevents regrowth overtime but For example: will the hair that's already on your back eventually fall off?
Hi there! No, you'll need to remove it.
It's my first time to visit this site. It seems the site is so helpful and I love it.
Thanks for the kind feedback, Malani! We hope you come back.
Which method not including the egg one is the fastest and most efficient( out of natural ones)?
The sugar wax method is the fastest and most efficient.
Hey!! I'm a teen n facing problem of too much hair on my legs will these remedy help ?
Hi Priti! These methods are good for leg hair too.
For the egg remedy, would it work for leg hair too? Instead of corn flour, could I use corn starch?
Hi Kirsten! It should work on leg hair too, and Cornstarch and Cornflour are the same.
For the papaya and turmeric paste, do I use the papaya outsides or insides, as the papaya flesh?
Hi Jasmine! You need to use the inside of the papaya.
Hello, if you were to do the sugar wax method, how many times do you have to do the method, until all hair is permanently gone.
Hi Elle! The sugar wax method is only temporary. It is a natural alternative to standard waxing.
I am not in a hurry of removing my unwanted hairs. Can I start with pumice stone and will it be effective if I use it daily...
Hi there! It will be effective with daily use.
I have also heard that salt water reduces the growth of hair.Is it correct ,please reply thanks......
I've heard some conflicting ideas about salt water. For head hair, it can be detrimental. It dehydrates the hair, making it more likely to break off and therefore reducing hair growth. I've also read that it can be good for the actual hair follicle, promoting hair growth from there. I would stick to one of the other tried and tested methods.
Till when does it work ..nd i will work really ... plzz tell which one is better or best
Hi there! The sugar wax method is very effective.
Hi there. Face here. Have you heard of the baking soda, vinegar, and honey method?
Hi there! Yes, I have heard of it. Have you tried it?
Can this egg remedy be used to remove hairs on the chest? And is it painful when peeling of?
Hi there! This method is best for fine hairs. It'll be a little tricky to peel off, just like waxing.
I have tried all of the above remedies.. but at a certain period of time hair starts to grow. I am thinking to try the laser hair removal treatment which the Dr. confidently says that i won't be getting any hair growth till 10 years. Dear Joanne A, Please advice me should i try the laser hair removal treatment or not ?? I know it's damn costly but i will be paying the Dr. in installments which will help me in clearing his balance fees.
Hi David! It's such a personal choice... Be sure to spend plenty of time thinking about it and weighing up the pros and cons.
Dear Joanne, Thanks for your advice :) Have a great day ahead :)
If I go forward with the papaya, would it be fine to wax my arms and legs while doing this until the papaya takes full affect?
Hi Lena! Papaya weakens the hair follicle. It would be fine to remove the hair through any method you like - just be aware of ingrown hairs.
Hi, for body hair, at the end, I defaulted to shaving again, but at least I can say I'm fairly comfortable and satisfied :). I might consider papaya to slow it down a bit at most, with realistic expectations, of course. Could this pumice though, maybe contrast and relieve possible calluses on feet with a lower chance of stimulating them in the process? Thanks for your tips.
You're welcome! Could you explain what you mean by stimulating?
Oh ok, sorry. So, in theory a callus is a defence reaction of skin of some zones of our body more exposed possible irritation by pressure and chafing, which are often heels or toes, I read that for this reason removing them by too harsh methods could stimulate and elicit them back more if our body still see/feel it as an aggression to defend from, but not sure :). Have a nice day.
After how days should we apply turmeric after the first one.
Hi Megha, It's completely up to you!
Is white egg different from the eggs above? Also this system of using egg, is it that it would be applied after shaving or there's no need for shaving? Also can it work for leg's and chest hair, if yes how?
Hi Prince! Do you mean egg whites?
Hi Prince! Do you mean egg whites?
Stephanie C, pulling of sugar wax in the opposite direction of hair growth can, and will break the hair shaft. This will also prevent the hair follicle from collapsing. So nothing permanent there. Your methods really are voodoo magic and you give absolutely no explanation of how or why these methods would or should work. Really, What a waist of my time!
Hi Michelle! Waxing is not a permanent hair removal method, but it will make the hair appear thinner than before as it removes hair at the source. It also slows down regrowth, because the hair will need to regrow completely, unlike with shaving.
Hiii.....pls the tumeric method,is it powered milk or liquid milk one will mix together?
Hi Wendy! Liquid milk is needed for this method.
Are there any alternative sugars to the sugar wax or should I just use white cane sugar?
Hi there! Any sugar should work just fine.
So all of these remedies are stating that if they're done regularly that you will see less "re-growth" over time. So for example, the turmeric paste on the facial hair... is it the paste itself that removes it from its roots over time or do you still need to be plucking or waxing prior to the paste application. Basically what I'm asking is if the hair needs to first be removed from the root and then the turmeric or papaya mixture be applied regularly. I have very sensitive skin and cannot use wax on the majority of my body. My legs are just about the only place that doesn't get super irritated when I wax. Thanks!
That's correct, Cristina!
It may seem obvious,Is the hair removal using turmeric ,remove it for permanently?
Over time, yes.
Is the turmeric +milk paste should be applied in the skin after shaving?
Yes, Alen - that's right!
But you didn't mention it in the given description
It's optional - you can shave first if you wish.
Which is the most effective, and permanent method for hair removal?
Hi Alen! The most effective method would be waxing as it removes all of the hair from the root. It is not, however, a permanent method.
Hi. Can these methods be used for male ?
Hi Adam! Yes, they can.
Hi, I admire your article Just had a quick question:Which of these can be used as instant hair removal with least pain?
Hi Yashika! Tricky question. Any waxing method would be the quickest, but not the least painful. If you want a method that isn't painful, normal shaving is probably the best.
Ok so after all that I understand you mean UNRIPENED papaya when you say "raw". Why then do you confuse the hell out of people by showing a RIPE papaya on the web page? Makes no sense at all!!!!!
I'm going to try the egg white, water and cornflower on my fine facial hair to see if it works for me.
Good luck, Susan!
Does papaya and turmeric paste last long
Hi Sue! Do you mean last long in terms of expiration?
Is this a permanent hair removal remedies
Hi Satya! Some of these are thought to be permanent.
Hiii after youve progressed with the removal of hair will it stay that way forever even if i stopped the regular use?
Hi Cassandra! It is unlikely to stay that way forever.
LOL, just tried the turmeric method for the first time, thank heavens I am single and live alone. By the time the paste had dried, I honestly looked like a baby had shat all over me. I tried it on my bikini area as I wasn't sure about skin staining and figured somewhere hidden would be a good place to start. It's done a reasonable job at removal, so I may just try it on other parts, especially as the staining wasn't anywhere near as hard to remove as I'd expected.
Hi Marya! Thanks for letting us know how you got on. You've certainly given us a laugh.
I would like to try the last method (turermic and milk) on my hairy legs ☺️ my question is how much area does 3 tsp turmeric powder with 1 tsp milk cover, I'm assuming small!?! What quantities of paste do you suggest??
Hi Laura! This quantity would probably only cover a small area. You can double or triple the recipe for a larger quantity.
Hi Joanne, Can any of these methods work on head hair? I do not like to shave my head on the sides every day. I want the complete bald look without having ti shave my head. Thanks, Hitaki
Hi Hitaki! I don't think these methods would be the best for head hair removal, but you could try it!
Hi Joanne, how last long papaya and turmeric paste before expiration?
Hi Enjz! As the papaya is fresh, it won't last very long. I would say about a week at most.
Seriously? I tried the turmeric method but nothing happened. I was expecting that my skin will be hair-less, shiny and beautiful !! But what i saw was a single hair didn't move from its place. What should i do now?
Hi Borneel! Did you follow every step? And how long did you try it for?
Hello guys how can I remove unwanted hair permanently without turmeric because I can't easily get it
Hi Promise! We share other methods without turmeric in the article.
Howdy! Great article and I SINCERELY appreciate your candor as well as patience. I've noticed, after reading most of the comments, that a lot of them are being repeated by different people, from different countries You commented your location as the UK (I'm in the USA) and thought that maybe I could help?!? Please don't take offense, I'm mean no harm or condescension!!! I also want to note that I do NOT know the sites policies or your personal restrictions. For those who have issues finding some of the recipe ingredients, having a bit of a "culture clash," or defining terms differently why not modify the article to include some of the "commonly asked questions?" For example, the semantics required when you are suggesting using fresh papayas, but explain it is better to use when not quite ripe. Another redundancy seems to be the lack of convienance in finding other ingredients such asturmeric. Given that you obviously have a variety of people in "unknown lands," or with other means of facilitating what you or I would view as simplistic may be quite frustrating, scarce, and uneasily obtained. Perhaps, if your site allows, you could research, post links, and even make a small profit (you would honestly refer to, should you choose a route such as this) to help facilitate an easier path for others to a achieve all ingredients. Again, I mean no offense and simply wish to help. Lol, AND once more, thank you for the article, suggestions, patience, and your articulations! I wish you the very best and many blessings!!! P.S. Please forgive my atrocious spelling and punctuation, lol. Take care!!!
Hi Jess! Thanks for the suggestion. Unfortunately, it's not possible to provide a purchase link for fresh ingredients on a global scale. We're glad you enjoyed the article!
Hey there, we have to boil the milk or in the raw form we have to use....and whose milk would be more effective-cow?...bufallow?...goat?...or mix? Will be waiting for your answer.Thank you!!! :-)

Hey joa what to do for full body hair removing
Natural methods for total body hair removal include using sugar or honey wax, egg and cornstarch paste, papaya and turmeric, coffee grounds and olive oil, and lemon juice and sugar. These methods are generally considered less harsh on the skin and less likely to irritate chemical or mechanical processes. However, it may take longer to see results, and the hair may grow back quicker. Always patch-test these methods on a small skin area before applying them to the whole body and consult a doctor or a dermatologist before starting any hair removal method.
Hi, quicker from sugaring? I always knew hair growing back thicker/quicker was attributed to shaving, though to a limited extent, not to waxing and sugaring as that should thin out hair possibly damaging the follicle. I agree on testing on a few cm2 of skin before starting a different method on a new zone of the body (:. Though shaving only cuts hair so the thicker, hair that I know would only be hormones affecting the cut hair as it has to grow back, no big deal (:.
Waxing or sugaring can lead to hair growing back thinner over time, but everyone's hair growth patterns are different.

This method is less painful than waxing and can be done at home. However, remember that hair removal at a young age is unnecessary and that discussing the options with a paediatrician before proceeding is essential.

I used Shaving method to remove hair on my body and face. After shaved Irritation, itching and blackheads, pimple started coming on my body. Please tell solution for me. I am Egarlly waiting for your reply!!!!! 🥺👆and can I use pumice stone method??
To reduce razor burn and prevent ingrown hairs, exfoliate before shaving, use a sharp razor, shave in the direction of hair growth, rinse with cool water, and moisturize afterwards. You could use the pumice stone method, but I wouldn't recommend it right now as it might cause further irritation for you.
Hi! Can I use ripe papaya in the place of raw papaya?
Ripe papaya can be used for natural hair removal, but it may not be as effective as raw papaya. Raw papaya contains an enzyme called papain, responsible for breaking down the protein in hair, making it weaker and easier to remove. Ripe papaya may have less papain and may not be as effective in removing hair. Additionally, ripe papaya may be more challenging to apply to the skin as it can be softer and more delicate than raw papaya.

It may also contain other nutrients or chemical components affecting the mixture's effectiveness.

How do I use the baking powder one ? I made it with water and rubbed on my skin. It didn’t work. What’s wrong?
If the baking powder hair removal method did not work for you, it is possible that you did not apply the paste correctly or that your hair is too thick or coarse for the technique to be effective. Additionally, some people may be sensitive to baking powder, which can cause irritation or an allergic reaction. In any case, it is always a good idea to do a patch test on a small skin area before trying any new hair removal method. If you experience discomfort or adverse reactions, discontinue use immediately and consult a healthcare professional.
