Unwanted hairs are really irritating, and at some point of time devastating especially to women who are not expected to grow such hairs. Admit it, although it is sometimes attractive and very masculine for men to grow hair in their arms, legs, and chest, it is disappointing and bothering when women have hair in those areas.
Though many have resorted to permanently stop unwanted hair growth, many are also not ready financially, physically, mentally, and emotionally for the processes they need to undergo for permanent hair growth stop. Imagine how many bucks you need to get out of your pocket in order to have a successful laser hair removal or electrolysis. Imagine how painful it could be. Imagine how you would be able to deal with the side effects the processes could bring you. Or imagine how devastating it is if the method was not successful for you.
This is why a lot of women resorts to simply slow down hair growth instead. Aside from the fact that it is much simpler and cheaper, side effects may not be that extremely dangerous. Although, choosing to simply slow down hair growth will never guarantee a permanent result – that’s why it’s called a slowing down process, not a stopping process. Effect may vary according to the resistance and tolerance of your hair to each method.
Here are the two most common ways to slow down hair growth:
Unlike shaving and plucking which most of the time takes effect only for few days before the hair re-grows, threading offers a longer time of effectiveness to up to six weeks and usually, the hair will re-grow in a thinner and finer texture, and lighter in color. Threading is done though a piece of cotton thread twisted in the unwanted hair and then pulled off right out of the follicle.
Use of Lotion and Cream
Lotions and creams for slowing down hair growth are now widely available in the market and can be bought just over the counter. All you need to do is to apply regularly these substances in the area of unwanted hair and you should notice a lighter and finer hair in due time, also penetrating a slower growth from the roots.
