  • Arm Hair

    So im 20.. and back in my freshman year of high school.. my friends and i thought it was "cool" to have smooth arms, with no hair.. so we shaved them. Well after about 2 years of doing that.. i got sick of shaving everyday, and having prickly arms when i forgot to shave. So now i've grown them out the past 2 years, and they are thicker and noticeable, which makes me very uncomfortable, especially in the summer time. Im not trying to make anyone feel sorry for me.. lol cuz i know it was my stupidity and everyone in my family thought it was stupid also.. but im tryin to find out if theres any type of cream or medication.. or something.. that will make the hair thinner, or less noticeable?

  • If the hair is not too coarse you could try bleaching it to make it less obvious otherwise waxing might be the solution for you.

    • I agree that bleaching it would probably be the only alternative to actually removing it. Beware though, that if the hair is really thick, a lot of blonde hair on your arm might look unnatural if the hair on your head is dark.

      I did the same thing, but I ended up having permanent laser hair removal on my arms.

            • shaving your arms or any hair for that matter will make it grow back thicker and darker. laser treatments however can not only remove the hair but it will make it eventually stop growing, so deffinatley look into it!! it is expensive however if it is a permanent solution you will likely be better off.

              • If you are looking forward to have a laser treatment for your hair problem...It is good...But just make it sure that you go to a licensed doctor specialist for the area...Don't go to laser treatment that is affordable but only to find out that it is not licensed...So be careful.

                Good Luck and God Bless.
