    Re: Method to stop hair growth

    There are many ways to permanently stop hair growth on nearly any part of the body. To stop hair growth with remedies at home, you need to join tablespoons of yogurt and teaspoons of turmeric powder in a bowl and stir till you have a paste that is thick but can still be easily spread. Use the paste so that it covers the area completely keep away from the eye and genital areas. Use your fingertips or a soft, dry washcloth to rub the paste off the area. Continue this treatment every 2 to 4 days. For more details follow ehow.com

    Excessive or unwanted hair in women





    The normal amount of body hair for women varies. Most of the time, a woman only has fine hair, or peach fuzz, above the lips and on the chin, chest, abdomen, or back. If you have coarse, dark hairs in these areas, the condition is called hirsutism. Such hair growth is more typical of men.


    Causes

    Women normally produce low levels of male hormones (androgens). If your body makes too much of this hormone, you may have unwanted hair growth.
    In most cases, the exact cause is never identified. It tends to run in families. In general, hirsutism is a harmless condition. But many women find it bothersome, or even embarrassing.

    A common cause of hirsutism is PCOS. Women with PCOS and other hormone conditions that cause unwanted hair growth may also have acne, problems with menstrual periods, trouble losing weight, and diabetes. If these symptoms start suddenly, you may have a tumor that releases male hormones.


    Other, rare causes of unwanted hair growth may include:

    • Tumor or cancer of the adrenal gland
    • Tumor or cancer of the ovary
    • Hyperthecosis (a condition in which the ovaries produce too much male hormones)
    • Use of certain medicines, including testosterone, danazol, anabolic steroids, glucocorticoids, cyclosporine, minoxidil, and phenytoinRarely a woman with hirsutism will have normal levels of male hormones, and the specific cause of the unwanted hair growth cannot be identified.


      Home Care

      Hirsutism is generally a long-term problem. There are a number of ways to remove or treat unwanted hair. Some treatment effects last longer than others.

      • Weight loss in overweight women can reduce hair growth.
      • Bleaching or lightening hair may make it less noticeable.

      Temporary hair removal options include:

      • Shaving does not cause more hair to grow, but the hair may look thicker.
      • Plucking and waxing are fairly safe and are not expensive. However, they can be painful and there is a risk for scarring, swelling, and skin darkening.
      • Chemicals may be used, but most have a bad odor.

      Permanent hair removal options include:
      Electrolysis uses electrical current to permanently damage individual hair follicles so they do not grow back. This method is expensive, and multiple treatments are needed. Swelling, scarring, and redness of the skin may occur.
      Laser hair removal uses laser aimed at the dark color (melanin) in the hairs. This method is best if a very large area needs to be treated and only if the hair is particularly dark (does not work on blond or red hair).
