Are you irritated enough with your sticky underarm hair and looking for an effective armpit hair removal treatment? Of course, you can remove armpit hair in various ways. However, what matters is whether you are looking for a permanent armpit hair removal solution or a short or mid-term one. For the latter, you have many underarm hair removers and procedures. But for a long-term solution, you may want to go for a laser armpit hair removal treatment. Let’s look at both in this article.

Armpit Hair Removal – Temporary or Short-Term Solutions

Honestly, you have many. Let’s look at the most common short-term underarm hair remover solutions. A couple of them are home-based remedies.

  • Shaving

Shaving is a prevalent armpit hair removal method. It is a pretty straightforward and pain-free process. All you need is a razor and some shaving cream to remove underarm hair. However, shaving can cause irritation or infection due to the razor and the results are only short-term, as it helps you get rid of armpit hair for only about two to three weeks.

  • Waxing

Waxing is another popular alternative that women opt to remove armpit hair. It involves applying hot wax to your skin. Once the hot wax cools down, it is ripped off in the opposite direction of the hair growth. Hot wax can scald or burn the skin. Furthermore, prolonged use of waxing can cause pigmentation in the area. Moreover, waxing also is a temporary solution. It prevents hair growth for around three weeks.

  •  Turmeric Treatment

Turmeric is another underarm hair remover. It helps remove hair in a pain-free manner and provides pretty long-term results. Take half a cup of turmeric with rose water. Keep stirring the mixture to form a paste. Apply the paste to your underarms and let it settle for around 30 minutes or so. Further, wipe off the paste with a towel soaked in warm water. Follow it for about a week until the hair follicles loosen. A point to remember, though, this treatment can cause irritation to the skin if a patch test is not done before carrying out the treatment.

  • Tweezing

Tweezing involves plucking the hair from the underarm. It is a more effective and long-lasting solution. However, plucking can cause infection of the hair follicle and irritation to the area. Moreover, tweezing is a painful treatment and can cause discomfort, especially when you would use it for armpit hair removal.
