Hair removal creams and lotion are a very popular treatment for hair eradication. These creams can be bought from many places, and can be purchased by many different brands. People buy these products sometimes looking for permanently removing their hair. Some brands say that their lotion is able to create a permanent hair removal solution. This most likely is not the case. There are a limited amount of ways to get rid of hair permanently, and these treatments can be very expensive. Creams aren’t generally very expensive, and sure the effects last longer than other ways of removing ones hair, but is it permanent? No.
Hair remover creams are not permanent. They can last between five days and five weeks, (it depends on the rapid growth of you hair.) It also depends on the cost and brand of the lotion you have chosen. The most common, and said to be the best working cream, is Revitol. Of course there are lots of other brands to choose from that work almost equally as well. None of these hair removing lotions are permanent though, but they are affordable, and get the job done for longer periods of time then other hair removal methods.
Epilators are not permanent either. For more imformation on the best epilators visit this site.
Understanding Human Hair Growth
Hair grows every where on the human body, except the palms of your hands, and the soles of your feet. Hair is made up of protein and multi-layered cells. The protein (also known as keratin) is made of a chain like structure. Its job is to help strengthen the hair shaft. When hair grows, there are three stages it goes into.
- Anagen: the anagen phase is the first cycle to hair growth. This cycle can last from two, to six years. This stage lasts the longest, and is said that eighty five percent of the hairs on the human body (including the head) is in this phase. How long the hair stays in this stage, and how bold it grows is based on genetics. It is also proven that the longer a hair is in the anagen phase, the longer and faster the hair grows. It depends on the person as to how quickly your hair will grow back.
- Catagen: After the anagen phase the hair goes into the catagen cycle. In this stage of body hair growth the hair takes a “rest”. So really in this stage, the hair doesn’t grow. In fact, it shrinks. It shrinks due to disintegration, and this results in the hair shaft being pushed upward. In a sense the hair is resting, and to do so it is cutting itself from the bodies nourishing blood supply. This phase lasts roughly two weeks. The percentage of hairs on the human body, including the head, that are in this stage can vary from 0 percent to 5 percent.
- Telogen: The last stage of hair growth, before the hair goes back into anagen phase is telogen. The telogen phase only happens on the head, for usually other body hair is already gone from being shaved.
And there you have it. That is how hair grows. On the human body we shave the hairs other than the ones on our head and eyelashes, and so we do not see the different cycles that all the hair grows through.
