Do Depilatories Really Work?

A cheap and quick fix, depilatories can get rid of unwanted hair. However, unlike waxing, depilatory crèmes only work well on finer hair, but not on coarse hair.

And you have to be wary when using this because removing hair may not be the only thing you get from them.

Depilatory crèmes are loaded with chemicals and melt keratin, which causes hair to dissolve.

But those chemicals don’t really remove hair as cleanly, so they grow back just as fast as you remove them. Normally, it takes three to four days, but sometimes it can come back in a day.

Plus, the chemicals you inhale can cause redness, rash, allergy or even burn your skin.

I know it sounds as if we don’t like depilatories. And yes, we admit, we really don’t. Not only can depilatories severely dry your skin, regular use can cause skin discoloration. And if you have sensitive skin, please think twice before using them as it could trigger an allergic reaction and give you more problems than just having unwanted hair.
