And possibly, that’s why you’re on the phone or your laptop searching for how to destroy hair follicles naturally at home, hoping any natural home remedy you find will cost you less money and less pain.

Luckily for you, there are several ways to destroy hair follicles naturally at home, and like a wish come true, these methods will cost you close to nothing.

What is a Hair Follicle?

Hair follicles are small openings in the skin that regulate hair growth. These follicles have a tunnel-shaped structure and contain sebaceous glands that lubricate and nourish the hair and the skin.

Hair grows at the bottom of the follicle, from protein cells that are nourished with nutrients from surrounding blood vessels.

The addition of more protein cells to the root of the hair keeps the hair growing. As it grows, it is continuously pushed upward until it eventually breaks through the surface of the skin.

How To Destroy Hair Follicles Naturally At Home?

By destroying the hair follicles on a particular part of your body, you can completely stop hair growth and remain hairless. Below are some homemade removal methods.

Papaya And Turmeric

Why It Works?

Papaya is well-known for its exfoliating properties, which make it an essential natural cosmetic product, but it can do so much more.

The fruit contains the papain enzyme, which could damage hair follicles, causing the hair to fall out. Fortunately, this process has no notable side effects, even for those with sensitive and acne-prone skin.


  • Raw Papaya
  • Turmeric powder (½ teaspoon)


  • Peel the papaya and slice it into little pieces
  • Grind the pieces with your kitchen blender to make a fine paste
  • Mix the papaya paste (2 tablespoons) with the turmeric powder
  • Peel the papaya and cut it into little pieces.
  • Grind the pieces to make a fine paste.
  • Mix the papaya paste with half a teaspoon of turmeric powder.
  • Stir it to mix it well.

How To Apply?

  • Apply the mixture on the areas you have unwanted hair.
  • Massage the affected areas for 15 to 20 minutes.
  • Rinse it off.


Repeat this process 2 to 3 times a week for best results.

Best For

All skin types.

Papaya And Aloe Vera

Why This Works?

This remedy works the same as the papaya and turmeric face mask remedy above. The papaya’s papain enzyme reacts with the hair follicle, causing the hair to fall out.


  • Raw papaya (1 tablespoon)
  • Aloe vera gel (2 to 3 tablespoons)
  • Mustard oil (1 tablespoon)
  • Gram flour (½ teaspoon)
  • Turmeric powder (½ teaspoon)
  • Essential oil (Any oil of choice, two drops)
  • A clean and dry cloth
  • Olive oil or moisturizer (1 teaspoon)


  • Peel the papaya and slice it into little pieces
  • Grind the pieces with your kitchen blender to make a fine paste
  • Mix the papaya paste with the other ingredients (turmeric powder, aloe vera gel, mustard oil, gram flour, and essential oil) to make a thick paste.

How To Apply?

  • Apply this paste on the affected areas
  • Allow it to dry and leave it on for about 10 – 20 minutes.
  • Take the cloth and start rubbing it in the opposite direction of the hair growth to remove the dried paste.
  • Rinse off with water and dry gently.
  • Take out your olive oil or moisturizer and apply a few drops on the affected areas.


Repeat this process 2 to 3 times a week for about three months for the best results.

Suitable For

All skin types.


Avoid washing the affected area with soap.

Egg White And Cornstarch

Why It Works?

When applied to the skin, the paste sticks to the hair. The hair is ripped off as the paste dries. Adding sugar and cornflour to the paste makes it sticky and gives it a thick consistency.


  • An egg
  • Cornstarch (1 teaspoon)
  • Sugar (1 tablespoon)


  • Boil the egg till the egg white and the yolk both solidify.
  • Separate the egg white from the yolk
  • Add cornstarch/ cornflour and sugar to the egg white
  • Whisk the mixture till it forms a smooth paste

How to Apply?

  • Apply the paste on the affected areas
  • Allow it to sit for about 20 – 25 minutes, till it dries up
  • Once it’s dry, peel it off


Repeat this process 2 to 3 times a week for best results.

Suitable For

Not for acne-prone and sensitive skin.


This process could be painful, but not more than using wax strips. Still, if you have a low tolerance for pain, sit this one out.

Also, those with sensitive or acne-prone skin should look away from this remedy as it could increase the possibility of breakouts.

Another precaution to take, though not very common, is the likelihood of the salmonella bacteria in the egg leading to skin infections. Ensure that the egg is cooked correctly to avoid infections.

Side Effects of Destroying Hair Follicles

Unlike other hair removal methods, damaging your hair follicles through the homemade remedies above won’t cause any severe side effects.

However, individuals with acne-prone and sensitive skin could experience breakouts and more pain than others. Apart from that, there are no notable affect-effects of these methods that you should worry about.

Final Thoughts

The remedies above should work just fine if you follow the guidelines correctly. You should repeat the process as instructed to give you the best results.

But if you notice any allergic reactions or severe side effects – like reddening, crusting, or changes in skin color – while following this guide on how to destroy hair follicles naturally at home, stop using the remedy immediately.
