Natural hair removal: 5 weird remedies that actually WORK!

Natural hair removal: 5 weird remedies that actually WORK!

Is natural hair removal too good to be true? Today we're looking at all the hair-removal options out there, starting from the basic and obvious, and working towards the weird and wonderful natural hair removal remedies (that actually work!)

Body hair - if only we could snap our fingers and make it disappear.

Although it was put on our bodies for good purpose (warmth and hygiene) clothes and showers, plus modern beauty standards, mean we no longer feel the need to be coated in a layer of fuzz.

The problem? Getting rid of body hair, and once we have, maintaining that lovely smooth skin.

Using razors to remove hair

Do you use razors?

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.

However, there are downsides to razors, which if you've used once regularly, you'll be all too familiar with.

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.

If you are opting for razors, we recommend investing in a quality piece of kit. Always dry it off after use, and store it properly.

Using hair removal cream

Have you ever tried hair removal cream?

It's something most of us experiment with, at some point in our lives.

Unlike razors, it won't leave you with a rash. Similarly to shaving, however, it will only remove the hair above the surface, leading to rapid regrowth.

Additionally, it can be tricky to apply, and the 10-minute wait time can be equally as tasking (especially if you're trying to get rid of hair down there!) It's not a form of natural hair removal, and the strong chemicals will produce an unpleasant smell, and may leave your skin dry. 

Hair removal cream definitely isn't a quick fix, however, it can produce better results that shaving if you're prepared to put the effort in.

Waxing

Waxing is 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, a combination of reduced hair-growth and your skin becoming used to the process mean the pain does decrease over time.

Waxing may provide great results, but it's both a costly and timely process, making it impractical for many of us.

Natural hair removal remedies

Natural hair removal? Yes, you heard it here first!

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.

BONUS: they're as cheap as chips!

1. Hair removal using sugar wax

Weird but it works! ©OneGoodThingByJillee

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:

  • just 200g sugar
  • 60ml lemon juice
  • 60ml water

Method:

  1. Add the ingredients to a saucepan on the hob, and stir to combine. Begin to heat, slowly bringing the mixture to a boil.
  2. Once it boils, simmer the ingredients on a low-medium temperature, stirring frequently. Once the mixture has turned golden brown in colour, it's time to remove the pan.
  3. Pour the ingredients into a jar and leave to cool for around 30 minutes.
  4. Spoon some wax into your hands, and roll it into a ball.
  5. Make sure the area of skin you want to remove hair from is clean and dry, then begin to spread the wax over it.
  6. Let it sit for a minute, then lift a corner of the sugar wax (enough to give you a good grip).
  7. Get ready...and rip the wax off in the opposite direction of your hair growth.
  8. Post-waxing, clean the area with warm water to remove any residue.

2. Natural hair removal at home using a pumice stone

Have you ever tried this?

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 a pumice stone is great at catching hairs and removing them from your skin. Plus, 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

I bet you already have eggs in the fridge!

Egg is not only extremely nutritious but has 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

Method:

  1. Mix the ingredients together to combine, then apply a thin layer to clean, dry skin.
  2. Leave the mixture to set on your face (around 15-20 minutes). It should form a film.
  3. Begin to peel the mask off from the out in. The mask will not only extract impurities, but also lift light facial hair.

Egg is an inexpensive and gentle way of treating unwanted facial hair. Why not give this natural hair removal remedy a go today?

4. Remove unwanted hair using papaya paste

If you're looking for a long-term solution, you may want to consider Papaya.

Although papaya won't remove hair overnight, over time, a special enzyme called papain inside the fruit will weaken hair follicles, preventing re-growth. 

Sound too good to be true? Try this natural hair removal remedy at home and see the results for yourself.

You'll need:

  •  1-2 tbsp mashed, raw papaya flesh
  • 1/2 tsp Turmeric powder

Method:

  1. Mix together the papaya and turmeric to form a paste.
  2. Rub onto the skin liberally, massaging the mixture in so it reaches hair follicles.
  3. Leave for 15 minutes.
  4. Wash off with water.
  5. Repeat regularly to see a reduction in hair growth (2-3 times/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
Could this everyday spice be the answer to your facial hair?

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!

Want to try it?

  1. Mix 3 tsp turmeric powder with 1 tsp milk.
  2. Spread the paste onto the area of skin with unwanted facial hair in the same direction as hair growth.
  3. Leave until dry (about 20 minutes).
  4. Add a small amount of water to hands, wet the paste slightly, and begin to scrub the skin using small, circular motions.
  5. 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 in no time at all.

      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, 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?

    1. Author Joanne A on January 24, 2019 at 9:35 am

      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!

      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.

    1. Author Joanne A on April 23, 2019 at 5:24 pm

      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.

      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.

      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 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 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.

    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

      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.
