  • The tops or underarms? I used to shave the tops of my arms but then decided it was too much trouble. I still shave underarms.

  • I used to shave the tops of my arms but then a male friend commented on how prickly it was when it was growing back (like a day or two after i shaved!) So out of embarassment as well to avoid the hassle of even more shaving, I stopped

  • No, I don't. Mine are pretty hairy, but I am blonde. I'd considered it, but generally it grows back thicker, so I hear. Not to mention I can go weeks without shaving my legs... I don't think I would be consistent lol.
    You can try waxing, etc. I know some women with dark and thick arm hair do that. Lasts longer, stays smoother.

  • I have shaved my arm hair before because I thought it was dark and ugly on my arms but that was before my DS was born and I was able to take the time to enjoy a shower and do unimportant grooming like that. Now, I've learned to live with it and it's really not as ugly as I had made it seem.

  • I wax mine, I just prefer it, and you don't get prickly growth back, it is actually finer and softer. If you can't wax yourself go to a salon, they know what they're doing, exfoliate gently to prevent ingrown hairs

  • Shaving is a really bad idea. My advice is to use the Skin So Soft Fresh and Smooth Hair Removal Cream for face. I like the facial version better for fine hair like your tummy or arms. Its on sale for $3.99 and it works really well. If you've used hair removal creams before that took forever to work don't make the mistake of leaving this one on too long. Two minutes the hair should wipe right off. I use a cotton ball to wipe it off, it seems to work the best. If you want to try it go to use coupon code FSANY for free shipping!
