How are you all today? Hope you're having/have had a great day.
I thought this MIGHT help some people out, since no one's mentioned it. Soy milk and turmeric are supposed to work to inhibit hairgrowth.
Soy Milk: Actually, any soy protein is supposed to work the same way. I tried a soy massage oil once, but didn't stick with it long enough. However, I regularly do thigh massages, and when I used soy as a carrier oil, I THINK THINK that the hair grew back slower. It's up to you to try it out, I've also heard that dipping a cloth or something in soymilk and applying it to your skin everyday will inhibit hair growth.
I don't know if the soy massage oil contained all the protein!
The NEW Jergens Shave Minimising cream contains soy protein as a hair inhibitor. (IMPORTANT!! This is only my opinion, but I suggest you do not buy this product, I do not know what they put into it, but after using it for a week or actually 5 days on my underarms, I started getting an odor problem, it's been a month and a half since I used it, and the odor problem is NOT gone.) I want to sue Jergens for this! Unless you want to be stuck with needing deodorant three times a day, then please don't even attempt the product, and if it blocks the pores so bad as to cause an odor problem, then it must be really bad for the skin. DON'T use it! Please. I never ever had a problem before that at all, I used to take pride in it.
Turmeric/turmeric powder: This is something that many Indian women I know of use. They call it Haldi. BUT, be careful of a yellowish tinge to your skin for a day after! I really don't know how it would work, I'm quite light skinned myself, so I've never had the guts to try it. The Indian ladies I've seen using it have all had a darkish color, so it hasn't shown on them. Even if you have a dark color, try it on a small patch first.
