There are specific places on our bodies where hair grows, like our head, our legs, underarms, sometimes the arms, the belly, or even our faces. And if we want to keep certain parts of our bodies with hair, and if possible to be long, shiny, and strong, (like the hair on our heads), we certainly do not want to have hair on other bodily parts. That is why most women shave their legs, and nowadays even men started doing this, too. But having to spend some time every week in this activity is not that pleasant, especially if you find out that a person can get rid of their unwanted hair for good. And not only this, but you can get rid of it for good without having to spend a lot of money on the procedure. Here are some homemade remedies that will remove hair permanently.
Method #1 Sugar & Lemon
As you have probably heard, lemon, except from being very healthy, it has a ‘lightening’ effect. In other words, you can make your skin lighter, and even your hair, if you apply lemon juice on it for some time. You can, thus, make the unwanted hair lighter by applying lemon juice, and this way you will hide it from the eyes of the people around you. But if you want to remove it for good, you can also use lemon. Here is what else you need:
- 2 tablespoons of sugar
- 2 tablespoons of lemon juice
- 10 tablespoons of water
Mix the ingredients in a bowl and apply the mixture on this part of your body you want to remove the unwanted hair. Apply it in the direction of your hair growth, and leave it like this for about 15-20 minutes. When this time is up, the mixture will be already absorbed in your skin. The last thing you need to do is to rinse it off by rubbing it gently with your hands. And this is it.
As you would probably see once you are done with the mixture, you will be left quit a lot of it. Keep it refrigerated, and use it again the next day to repeat the procedure.
Method #2 Sugar, Honey and Lemon Juice for Legs and Arms
Our second method also includes sugar and lemon juice, but this time we have added some honey as well. The mixture you will have will kind of look like the one women use for waxing, and that is why you should only apply it on your legs and arms. You will need:
- 1 tablespoon of sugar
- 1 teaspoon of lemon juice
- 1 teaspoon of honey
- 1-2 teaspoons of flour
- Water (if you want to make the paste not so thick)
Mix all the ingredients in a bowl, and stir them well. You need to make sure that everything is mixed well before you apply it on your body. Then heat the mixture in a microwave for about 3 minutes. Then leave it to cool down. It should be at room temperature. Then apply it on your legs/arms with a tool, you may use some spatula, like the ones used for waxing.
Then apply some waxing strips. Let them stick well before you pull the strip in the opposite direction of your hair growth. Continue until you have removed every single hair you do not want. Repeat the procedure again when the hair starts growing. You will need a couple of procedures to remove it permanently.
Method #3 Basil onion paste
And the last remedy is for those of you, who do not want to use lemon. You will need 10-12 basil onion leaves. Remove the membranes and make the rest into a paste by crushing them, or putting them in a blender. Then apply the paste on the area you want and leave it this way for half an hour. If you repeat the procedure for a month, you will get rid of the unwanted hair for good.
