Tria laser hair prep gel
a gel that dyes hair with transparent yet IR absorptive dye. That way people with light hair can zap off hair with a laser.
I read about something called the Tria personal hair
removing laser. They are near $60 on ebay. It is easier
remove dark hair.
I thought that a gel that dyed hair with a transparent IR
absorptive dye could make hair easier to remove without
unsightly visible dye.
was another reason to put this idea up. I
found a site that is actively seeking new inventions in the
consumer products category, and thought halfbakers
be interested. [link] I do not have any connection to it.
this is something terrible like spam, just let me know
will remove the idea.
a place called GSK consumer healthcare is seeking inventions

||"GSK" is Glaxo SmithKline, the sort of corporate monster which would reject Emperor Palpatine as Chief Executive on the grounds that he wasn't sufficiently ruthless. At least they are an equal opportunity employer - most of their non-customer-facing* roles are taken by Daleks.
||*apart from Customer Services itself, which is staffed by Daleks and Cybermen, but outsourced to the Ferengi.
||" If this is something terrible like spam, just let me know and I will remove the idea."
||Surely you'd want the base of the hair to be IR absorbing, since that's where the heat is needed? A dye would (I think) only affect the outer part, which is the opposite of what's needed.
||perhaps taking a shower first, letting the stuff dry in and
perhaps some DMSO could work, but then you might be
making the skin absorptive as well
||Never, ever let anyone put DMSO on your skin. If they do,
flush the area with running, clean water for a good five
minutes and make sure no other chemicals come into
contact with the affected area. Seek medical assistance.
