Removing unwanted hair can be time consuming, frustrating, and expensive. When hair grows faster than we like there are a few things that can be done to slow this process down. It will take patience and a commitment on your part, and with some time you will begin to notice that your hair is coming in less frequent, growing slower, and will be thinner and finer.
One of the more popular methods is to use a hair-growth inhibitor. You can purchase a hair-growth inhibitor over the counter at most pharmacies as well as most grocery stores. It is a lotion that contains soy extracts and needs to be used regularly and consistently in order for it to work. This product works by changing the structure of the hair follicles until the hair becomes soft and fine, and with time it will ultimately stop the hair from growing. However, there have been no studies done as of yet that have determined how effectively the lotions work.
At this time there is only one hair-growth inhibitor approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration). The name of this product is Vaniga and is only available by prescription.
There are other ways of slowing down hair growth and getting rid of unwanted hair. Some of these ways include laser hair removal, waxing, tweezing and bleaching.
There are a lot of different choices and you may find that you will need to try several different ways before you find one that will do the job that you want.
