Turmeric, lavender oil, aloe and even some sesame oil made into a paste and used after shaving will make your hair go away. Put the paste on and leave for 20 minutes to 1/2 hour. After some time you will see less hair… and later hair will not even grow… it works! Turmeric is amazing stuff!

Also a mixture of turmeric, aloe, cucumber, fullers earth, neem, and besan flour works well in a paste for slowing hair growth. Others us a mixture of gram flour and turmeric made into a paste that works well.

White pepper and camphor with almond oil… will also do the trick. Make into a paste and leave on for 20 minutes. Over time your hair will be come lighter and soon there will be less and less hair.

Hare’s Ear Root and Beefsteak Plant made into a paste is natural Japanese product made to get rid of unwanted hair.

  1. very interesting. I will give it a try.

  2. Araim says:

    Hi, can you be more specific about these various remedies? I’m reading about them everywhere online but nobody is very specific about how long they take to work, what kind of hair they work on, where application is or is not suitable, whether the hair falls out or if you’re supposed to shave/wax first, etc.

    Background: I am male with thick, dark hair that grows everywhere. I’m looking into a solution to reduce it (all of it except head) by at least 30-40%. Any tips on which of these might be the most suitable? I’m looking at the white pepper + camphor so far, and most of the descriptions online also add kerosene.

    Also, can almond oil be used after plucking/waxing as well or just after shaving?

    Any advice would be appreciated before I go into this blindly, thanks !

      It will depend on your hair type, color, your skin and many more things— so there is no way to be more specific — try them and see how they work for you.

      Stay away from kerosene.

    can I get a follow up on this from people who tried it? did it work?

    Almond oil is a time honoured natural herbal remedy that is used for healthy luxurious hair. It is used to PROMOTE hair growth and help prevent hair loss. I certainly would not use it to try and inhibit hair growth.

  5. Sharona says:

    Can you try this after waxing, or does it only have to be after shaving?

    Thank you.

    Wouldn’t tumeric dye your skin yellow?

      No it will wash off – I even make a great Turmeric Ointment for cuts, rashes, and more.

      I use turmeric all the time – one of the most powerful herbs we have.
