Hair growth on various parts of the body is a natural process. The hair that grows can be very light and may not show on the skin. On the other hand, dark hair on the skin can be very obvious and also a cause of concern for many. This dark hair may need to be removed often so that the skin appears neat and clean. There are various ways using which hair can be removed from the skin like laser hair removal, shaving, waxing and electrolysis. However, over the years, an easier method for hair removal has been developed. These are hair removal creams. Hair removal creams are an easy method of removing unwanted hair and have become very popular over the past few years because of the ease with which these can be used.
Hair removal creams are basically chemical depilatories. These contain chemicals that act on the hair. The hair removal creams have chemicals that chemically react with the hair and break down its keratin making the hair easy to wipe out. Hair removal creams or depilatories basically contain the following:
When a hair removal cream is applied on the body, the alkaline chemicals like calcium thioglycolate, potassium thioglycolate and strontium sulfide react on the hair to remove it. These chemicals react with the hair proteins called keratins to dissolve it. After some time of the application of the cream, the hair becomes so weak that it falls out of the follicle.
One cannot use any hair removal cream that is available. It is essential to know the skin type and the area from which hair needs to be removed. Hair removal creams are no longer generic and are formulated keeping in mind the different skin types of which these can be used. People who have a sensitive skin must make use of mild hair removal creams that are available. Hair removal creams must also be chosen keeping in mind the type of hair that needs to be removed; fine or coarse. Hair removal creams must be chosen keeping in mind the area from where the hair needs to be removed as different creams cater to different body areas. Hair removal creams are available for removal of leg hair, arm hair, armpit hair, chest hair, bikini area hair and facial hair. It is also essential to choose the hair removal cream which has ingredients to which a person is not allergic. If one does not keep this fact in mind, the hair removal cream can cause skin problems.
There are several benefits of using the chemical depilatories.
Before using the hair removal cream, it must be tested on a small patch of skin to ensure that it does not cause allergies or any adverse skin reaction.
If barium sulfide is applied in small amounts, often (as in daily), will it still work as a hair remover. (Not completely removing hair with every application, but over time, as if one was to mix the product into a bottle of body wash.) Just curious as to why some of the big companies have not developed a product like this, a product that would give the results of hair removal and not add an extra task to an individuals daily hygiene routine.
