They say, “Beauty is pain,” but it doesn’t have to be. There are also some very natural ways to remove hair. Below are 7 hair removal techniques that fall into different price ranges.


Using papaya is a natural way to remove unwanted hair. It contains an enzyme called papain. This is one that breaks down hair follicles. To use this method, get raw papaya and raw turmeric root. Cut up and mash together to make a paste. Massage into skin, and let sit for about 20 minutes. As it is rinsed, the hair should fall off.

Laser Treatment

Laser treatment can be used as a permanent hair removal remedy. During the treatment, hair follicles are targeted, and hair will no longer grow in that area. It is almost pain-free, but might feel like a sunburn. It is worth it, however, if it removes all the unwanted hair.  


Waxing is a more traditional type of hair removal. It will need to be repeated every couple of weeks, depending on the thickness and darkness of hair. There is the option of both hard and soft wax. Soft wax is covered with a cloth and pulled off. Hard wax will solidify after a few minutes and then can be pulled off. This can be done at home or by going to a trusted salon.


Threading has become quite popular in the last few years. It is a method that originated in the Middle East and Asia. It involves a tightly pulled thread that is repeatedly rolled over the area where hair is desired to be removed.


Another natural beauty remedy, turmeric can be used to remove unwanted hair, and it is pain-free. Combine turmeric powder, sesame oil, and gram flour to make a paste. Apply to the area, and wash off after 30 minutes.


Using a depilatory cream can also be an effective method to remove unwanted hair. It has chemicals that break down and remove the unwanted hairs. To ensure there will be no allergic reaction, before using it all over, try out a small patch of skin. Apply the cream to the area, let sit according to the directions and then wipe it off along with the hair.

Egg and Corn Starch

Dried eggs can act similar to a wax. Crack the egg, and mix cornstarch and sugar together to create the paste. Put it on the area that needs to have hair removed and let it dry. Once it is dried, just pull it off, and the hair should come off with it leaving skin nourished and healthy-looking.
