To remove excess hair on the body, many methods have been invented: epilation, shaving, shugaring. Unfortunately, all of them give only temporary results, the exception is expensive and not always effective laser hair removal. In search of simple and affordable ways to get rid of hair forever, you can turn to grandmother's time-tested recipes.
First of all, you need to understand that the hair will stop growing forever, you need to completely destroy the bulbs. For this, various corrosive solutions, tinctures and decoctions of poisonous plants, iodine-containing compositions are used. Special care should be taken when working with them, avoid contact with mucous membranes, and keep away from children and animals.
It should be borne in mind that all iodine-containing and corrosive compounds dry the skin very much, after using them, you need to moisturize it with a cream.
To get the effect, it is necessary to apply the product repeatedly, and regularly. It is important to remove hair in advance by any available method, for example, with tweezers or epilation - only in this case the active substance will gain access to the hair follicle. If the hair is strong and healthy, applying solutions directly to it will have no effect, except for some lightening. You should also not shave your hair, it only makes it stronger.
So, what hair removal products are there. The most popular and effective solution is rivanol. It can be purchased at pharmacies, usually state-owned, which prepare their own medicines. The shelf life of such a solution is very limited, no more than 3 weeks. You can also prepare the solution yourself, at home, from tablets. For a liter of water, 10 g of the substance should be taken, thus a 1% solution will be obtained.
Rivanol is safe enough for use, it is a strong antiseptic used for disinfection and acceleration of wound healing. To remove body hair, wipe the skin with the solution once or twice a day for several weeks. Then take a break and repeat the course. The result will be noticeable after the first course: the hair becomes weaker, brighter, and begins to fall out. It may take two, three or four courses to permanently remove hair completely, depending on the characteristics of the organism.
Often, a concentrated solution of potassium permanganate is used to remove hair. You need to work with it carefully so as not to get skin burns. The crystals should be diluted in water, mixed thoroughly until an intense pink (but not dark crimson!) Color, applied to the skin with pulled out hairs. The manganese solution turns the skin brown, so you can use lemon juice to lighten it back.
It is better to start hair removal from areas of the skin that are not visible to others, since some formulations stain the skin, others can cause dryness, allergies, and redness.
For bleaching and hair removal, a solution of hydroperite is used. In pharmacies, most often they sell a 3% composition of hydrogen peroxide, it is too weak. It is better to buy tablets and dilute a 15% solution, add a few drops of ammonia. The composition is applied to the skin, when it dries - again. You need to keep it for at least an hour, otherwise there will be no effect.
A tincture can be made from the walnut shell or partitions to remove hair. For the partitions of fifty nuts, 150-200 ml of 70% alcohol will be required, leave for 3-4 weeks. For two to three weeks, areas with increased hair growth should be lubricated. Traditionally, fresh green walnut juice, turmeric paste, and Datura tincture were also used for hair removal - all these plants contain a large amount of iodine and burn hair follicles.
