Welcome, John C!
This section is about a class of products called “hair inhibitors,” which frequently make claims that they can cause changes in hair growth. Some even claim these changes will be permanent.
These sorts of claims have no basis in scientific fact, which is why I urge consumers who demand proof to skip these over-the-counter “hair inhibitors.”
Depilatories, on the other hand, are well-established products designed to dissolve hair above the skin’s surface. This temporary method is useful for some, although the chemicals in these products can irritate the skin. Check out the depilatories forum for more on these legitimate products.
And skip the hair inhibitors until they put out some legitimate proof.
