Inhibitif promised to be my hair-removal life-saver and i’s about time I spoke about my experience. It promised barely there hair that took forever to grow out and at a much lower price than laser.
For the first few weeks things went well. I used Inhibitif as directed and after two weeks noticed that already my leg hair seemed to be growing out slower. The regrowth wasn’t much finer but it was a little softer as well. I continued using Inhibitif for 8 weeks. After the 8 weeks I probably used it about 4 times. It might be cheaper than laser, but it was still costing me R300 a month. A R300 I don’t have to spend because I epilate.
I did see a big improvement in the amount of hair, the thickness of the strands and how quickly they grew out by the 8 week mark. I was happy but there was one thing that always bugged me, what would happen if I stopped using the chemical concoction on my legs?
Ingrowns. After just two weeks of not using Inhibitif my hair started growing back at the normal speed and I developed the most ingrown hairs I have ever seen. Not those pimples, but literally hairs growing just below the surface. It would look I had never shaved, but I couldn’t actually access those hairs to remove them.
Inhibitif advertises ingrown-free regrowth, but it just didn’t pan out that way. It’s a great product while you’re using it, but I’m a little hesitant about the adverse effects, no one knows what they are and what it’s going to do to you when you stop. The ingrown hairs were shock enough for me. I’m not waiting for my body to rebel and turn me into some wooly creature the next time I stop. I would much rather invest in Laser and get rid of it once and for all.
