How to Make Hair not Grow Back?
The desire to remove unwanted hair usually starts during adolescence and never stops. Whether it's hair on the face, armpits, legs, bikini line, or other parts of the body, many women and men are intent upon getting rid of it. There are lots of different ways to remove unwanted hair, but very few methods get rid of hair permanently.
There are hair removal methods that range from easy and inexpensive (shaving) to high-tech and pricey (laser hair removal).
These hair removal methods work for every part of the body, every skin type, every amount of time and, most importantly, every budget.
Understanding how hair grows helps you more effectively remove it and prevent it from growing in the first place. Each hair is part of the pilosebaceous unit, which consists of the hair shaft, hair follicle, sebaceous gland, and erector pili muscle.
Hair growth is a continuous cycle that has three phases:
- the anagen phase (growth phase)
- the catagen phase (transitional phase)
- the telogen phase (resting phase)
Hairs spend a different amount of time in each of these phases, and that time is determined by genetics, hormones, and the part of the body where the hair is growing. All of these factors must be considered when choosing a method of hair removal.
Shaving is everyone's first introduction to hair removal. It's also the most temporary method of hair removal.
Shaving cuts the hair off at the surface of the skin. Contrary to popular belief, shaving does not make the hair shaft thicker or darker. It also does not make hair grow faster or slower. It does, however, cause hair to grow in with a blunt tip rather than a natural, tapered tip, which is what makes hair noticeable.
Get a more effective shave by moisturizing the skin first. Shaving cream, hair conditioner, and body wash help a razor glide smoothly over the skin and help prevent nicks, cuts, and scrapes.
