Bleaching Hair on Arms?

I want to bleach the hair on my arms very blonde. I asked this question a while back but got no answers or advice. I'm a 35 yr. female. My head hair is med brown, my pubes are med brown. My body is not that hairy at all. My arm hairs are mixed blonde, light brown, med brown, and some gross black. I hate them!

I used Sally Hansen many times, 20 minutes 3 days in a row. My hairs are still light to med brown with a few blondes that got bleached. I have tried peroxide coated wraps on my arms for 1/2 hr. at times with very little results! I also tried recipes described online mixing peroxide with vinegar and also with ammonia. No better results. I have been using Sally Hansen for about 8 years and yes it helps, some. The hair on my arms has gotten longer, finer, and softer; w/ 1/4 results of blonde. I've seen hirsute black haired ladies with beautiful long dense blonde hairy arms. How do they do it? I've even been to the doctor on my hormone levels. All are WNLs. I've left the Sally Hansen on till it hurts; with no difference.

If I can't get any advise, I'm thinking trying salon 'high octane peroxide', or using 'head hair' bleach on my arms. I'm not worried about a little skin irritation; I just want my arm hairs to be a golden blonde color. I've shaved and waxed. It makes me look unhuman or like a 'Barbie doll'. One thing that irritates me is that people say "shaving hairs makes regrowth hairier or thicker". This is not true. Your advice or input would be very helpful.

I'm sorry to hear you hate any part of yourself. I (personally) think that multi-hued hair (like on a deer hide) is lovely and interesting and probably perfect for your skin colour.

Judy's article is good but doesn't address the issue of light. Although I may be wrong, lemon juice and hydrogen peroxide are much more effective in conjunction with sunlight. If it's winter where you live and you don't particularly care for tanning beds, buy a full-spectrum light bulb for your desk lamp (for example), apply the peroxide and put your arms under the lamp for half an hour. If it's summertime in your part of the world? Sit outside on a sunny day.

Why are you wanting them blond? Because you want them blond or because you want them to be less noticeable? If its because you want them blond, I don't know of any other way.

but if its is because you want it less noticeable, then you might consider electro methods that some of the doctors use. It is a mild dose of electrify that kills the hair root and the hair won't grow back.

Electrolysis does not kill the root but in fact remove the hair just like with shaving and waxing it last longer and with repeated sessions will become noticeably thinner and overtime will gradually decrease

WOW the amount of chemicals you have used on your arms, I'm really shocked you still have skin, chemicals especially chemical breeches are not good for your skin,they cause extreme dryness and can possibly burn the skin. even when you apply bleaches to the hair on your head it does not touch the scalp. youve tried many products and( no shaving does not make the hair grow in thicker) I am a licensed cosmetologist and if you bleach the hair the lighter ones will turn white and the black ones will turn light brown. You will still have multi colors.

best thing is try a shower hair removal system I think they were great and you won't have arms that look like a Barbie dolls, the damage that the other chemicals have done to your arm to Twitch giving it that glossy Barbie doll plastic appearance. but before putting any more chemicals on your precious arms I would try several weeks use of a moisturizer for extremely dry skin or one with shea butter, to heal your skin, then try a shower hair removal system they are quick and easy and are not as damaging to the skin most of them can also be used on the pubic area I hope it works out for you and good luck

I had still been using Sally Hansen [extra strength] cream hair bleach. I would leave it on for about 30 min & tingles, slight burn sensation; but never has affected my skin at all. I use lotion after. Skin never red or inflamed. Still never got pretty feminine blonde hairs. I don't wish use hair remover on my arms though. I'd like the hair on my arms to show... if could get a feminine/ pretty blonde arm hairs. I finally took the 'plunge' out of desperation! I bought some reusable [mix as needed] pretty blonde 'ice' head hair dye. I smothered my arms w/ it!

I put on gloves to apply. No burning etc. Left it on for 45 min. Rinsed away & wow! Beautiful! Didn't burn or make skin even red either. Put on lotion w/ no problems. I'm so proud & happy to expose my pretty feminine blonde arm hairs. Get many compliments too! P:S: I shave my entire body bald. Like to leave s o m e hair on my body, so not to look like a hairless 'Barbie doll'. I'm thinking of using an epilator on the rest of my body hairs. I've Never used one/ know nothing about it. Can anyone help please on how to do & a good epilator to buy- please? Thank you everyone for your comments, suggestions & ideas. Katie~

this is a very odd problem I've not heard of before! The things that occur to me, along the lines of what's already been written is

1. just tweeze out the ones you don't like, that are too dark. Or use Nair hair remover. This is a pain but at least then you can get rid of the dark ones

2. use hair bleach, the kind you use to bleach the hair on your head before a dye job, on your arms. It sounds horrific for your skin, but you don't seem to care too much about your skin or any probable serious health consequences. I pretty much refuse to believe that leaving the dye there long enough won't make all the suckers white eventually (but at what cost, I mean really)

You saying "I mean really" is not helpful. I get that you don't approve of this but if she is insecure about this than you're just making things worse and you sound like a bad person
