Does baking soda really remove pubic hair?

Welcome readers to the most absurd article of all time! We’ve all heard about weird hair removal methods but this one truly takes the cake. Baking soda is a common kitchen ingredient that has been coveted for its myriad uses apart from being used as a rising agent. Over the years, baking soda had gained popularity in beauty and skincare circles as an exfoliant or teeth whitener. But have you ever wondered if it can be actually used to remove pubic hair? Well, we’re here today to find out whether it’s the real deal or just another myth.

The Baking Soda Myth

Rumors on various online forums suggest baking soda not only helps kill bacteria down there but also gradually weakens the hair follicles leading to baldness (No pun intended) over time. Some even claim that baking powder mixed with enough water can shave off pubic hairs permanently without causing irritation or inflammation.

Nowadays, people are willing to try anything at least once – but shaving their private parts with what is essentially glorified cooking ingredients seems pretty risky just for smooth skin sake.

What is Baking Powder?

Before getting into our investigation of whether it’s possible (or safe) to use baking powder for hair removal purposes let’s take a closer look at what exactly baking powder really means.

Baking powder consists mainly of three things- bicarbonate (sodium), cornstarch and cream of tartar acting as leavening agents thus helping dough rise by releasing carbon dioxide once heated up .

A small amount goes a long way when used properly; too much will short circuit your baked goods’ progress towards fluffiness resulting in tough cookies instead of light sponges delicious cupcakes!

Why Doesn’t It Work?

On technical grounds, using bicarbonate soda dissolves protein fibers in your cooked food thereby making others softer but when it comes to removing hair, it just doesn’t work that well. Pubic hairs are made of a strong protein called Keratin which makes them resistant to things like water or baking soda-based solutions.

Additionally, the skin down there is pretty sensitive and prone to rashes or irritation if anything too harsh is applied on. One can only imagine what applying a potent chemical reaction such as sodium bicarbonate might do.

Safer Hair Removal Methods

The truth is, there are several methods safer than using baking powder for pubic hair removal.

  1. Shaving
    • The most common method out there and arguably one that works best.
    • Using razor blades make sure you have enough lubrication – soap/gel/toothpaste (No! It’s not a joke).
  2. Waxing
    • A little more painful than shaving but more effective & longer-lasting.
    • Waxing strips/pots are easily available at pharmacies /Drug stores now!
  3. Hair Removal Creams
    • These have been around since ages!
    • Just apply and wait until your pubes dissolve away painlessly!

According to these safer traditional techniques with lower risks of unwanted side effects like infections or severe body odor would be much less disastrous compared from trying something else untested home remedies involving household items we usually use in cooking instead merely attempting shave everything off hoping no irritation/ all-controlling itching will follow.

Whether someone resorts themselves desperate measures by exposure burnt peroxide brushing onto their intimate areas (or any other crazy beauty trend) remain mystery so far even though know quacks promote these concoctions over proven methods stating otherwise affects claims stay false opinion people sharing endorsements without reviewing scientific explanations involved careful consideration must always given before every next suggestion /claim received uncritically.
