Dark arm hair making me self conscious

Hi ladies! I have been shaving my arms since I was in high school because I’ve always had dark thick hair on my forearms (I also have PCOS so I think that contributes). In the last month I decided to stop shaving and let it grow back. I’m still getting used to it and it’s definitely longer and thicker but I feel so manly (don’t berate me feminists! I’m not proud of the feeling). Are there any suggestions? Anything I can use to lighten or soften it? Therapy to get me to accept it? 😂

It’s completely normal! Mine is really dark too and I have really pale skin, but usually the hair goes a bit lighter in summer if I’ve been in the sun.

I have always had arm hair, most of the time it doesn’t bother me but when it does, it’s usually summertime so I use nair hair remover.

I got laser hair removal on mines! Worked like wonders. I was shaving for many many years and it was just like stubble on my arm! Also had my legs, bikini and underarms done! Would recommend to anyone with dark hair tbh x

I had really hairy arms for years and was really self conscious but one day decided to have them waxed. It wasn't that painful and now my arm hair definitely isn't as thick. X

Have you ever waxed your arms? I’ve been doing mine in a salon since I was a teenager and a few years ago just bought a home wax warmer and do it myself
