With so many hair removal products on the market, it can get to be a bit overwhelming to try and sift through all of them, let alone consider trying them out until you find something that works. Hair growth inhibitors are designed to slow hair growth or, ideally, cause it to stop growing altogether. Among the deluge of hair growth inhibitors available over the counter, Kalo, created by Nism International, uses sulfur reducers that penetrate the hair follicle and, allegedly, prevent the hair from regenerating. Nism claims that after each application of Kalo lotion or spray, users will notice a 10-15% reduction in hair growth. The company recommends that users wax, sugar, or tweeze hair before using the product in order to achieve the best results. Kalo is also said to be safe for use anywhere on the body, including sensitive areas such as the bikini line.
Based on a broad analysis of customer reviews, Kalo is hit or miss. Some claim that, after using Kalo, they noticed significant reduction in hair regrowth, noting finer and fewer hairs. Others said it took a very long time before they noticed results but that, eventually, their hair growth slowed. Finally, however, many said that their use of Kalo effected no change in hair growth whatsoever. While Nism claims that the product is safe on even sensitive skin, several users complained of burning and breaking out. Additionally, some professionals have raised questions about some of the ingredients in Kalo, including methylparaben, propylparaben, diazolidinyl urea, and triethanolamine, which have been labeled carcinogens.
One must approach with skepticism any cheap product promising to have miraculous effects. Kalo, which sells for around $30 for four ounces of lotion, simply cannot promise to provide the same effects of professional hair removal treatments. Professional hair removal treatments are time-tested and performed by experience hair removal specialists. Because of this, they are both effective and safe. As previously mentioned, some have raised safety concerns about the Kalo hair growth inhibitors, and you have to ask yourself whether saving a little cash is worth risking your health, and even if blowing $30 on a bottle of lotion is really worth it, if the reviews are so mixed.
