Dear BeingGirl Experts,

I have very dark hair on my arms, and when I wear short-sleeved shirts I am always made fun of cause they say I have hairy arms. Is it okay to shave the hair on my arms?

Dear Katey,

The dark hair on your arms can be lightened with facial hair bleach. Facial hair bleach is available at a drugstore and can be used for arm hair. This will make the dark hair much less noticeable. Make sure you read the directions carefully before using the facial hair bleach.

 

When your peers make comments, they are showing their insecurity (lack of confidence). Not letting them see what they have said is bothering you works to your advantage. They will move on when you shrug it off. Remembering how you don't like this type of comment when you are interacting with your friends will help you be a better friend. Everyone has insecurities. When someone points this out it bothers us. When you choose to comment make sure it is positive, and if you hear a negative comment made to someone counterbalance it with something positive.

 

Hope this is helpful,

Your BeingGirl Experts

I have arm hair but its not that dark but you should not shave your arms because after you shave the hair that grows back will be much darker and noticeable.

Same here! All I wear are long sleeves even in summer! I hate them! I never go anywhere cuz of my arms! Yeah it hurts when ppl comment, but I don't listen to them! I was actually brave enough to wear shirtsleeves this summer! Nobody seemed to make fun! They would look for a second but look away! I think I've gotten more confident cuz of that! It doesn't matter what other ppl think!

i always hated my arm hair, and in competitive swimming, every detail counts. that includes shaving. now i can't tell you how hilarious it is when boys on my team have to shave their legs, but this special hair lotion stuff is passed around like the flu before races. you put it on your arms and viola! silky smooth for 2 days, then i comes back... :(

I just have one thing to say ladies...most men actually LOVE gals with hair on their arms. They don't admit it but trust me, they do. I'm not saying as much hair as men have, but in general, the normal amount of hair that a girl has on her arms that she thinks is too much, guys think is extremely sexy. I'm serious, DON'T shave your arms girls, guys really do like it. It's very attractive.

I had long dark hair on my arms starting when I was in like 4th grade and it made me really self conscious so when I started shaving in 5th grade I shaved my arms too. At first I thought it looked kinda strange having no arm hair whatsoever but I like the smooth feeling and I just do it all the time now. In 5th and 6th grade girls would sometimes comment like "you shave your arms??" but seriously who wants to be hairy? I'd just brush it off. I'm 16 now and it's honestly not a big deal and just makes me feel more confident.
