You could wax them? Or do laser hair removal.

You can find special bleach in Walmart or the drugstore by Sally Hansen. Not hair bleach, don't use that.

If your arms are like really hairy I wouldn't bother with bleach because then you'll just have lots of blonde hair instead and it won't make you feel better. I'd go with waxing. I'm guessing it's really the forearm you're bothered by? It really wouldn't be that hard to maintain.

Lol omg... I shave mine! It doesn't grow back any worse. You just have to keep up with it, just as you would your legs. I've done it since high school, I don't see a problem with it lol.. I'd rather have nice smooth arms than noticeably hairy ones lol. You have lots of options! I hope you find the one that works for you.! (:

If you shave it all the time you wouldn't see it come back worse . I personally wouldn't want to shave them all the time .. I would find it embarrassing , but that's just me .

I have shaved mine the past 15 yrs and I'm so used to it that I never let it grow. A little stubble isn't as embarrassing as looking like a she-wolf. Lol

That's definitely more accurate lol! My hair (on my head) is super dark brown so of course my arm hair is dark. I told my husband about bleaching he said no you've lived with the same arm hair almost 25 year what's the issue now lol! He's a mess, I might still try not like he would know anyways

waxing can get expensive if you go to a good salon and tricky when first doing it yourself....but it can actually soften the hair over time

laser is expensive and you have to keep it up I think every 3-6 months for treatments

shaving is not bad and for most it does not make the hair thicker it just seems that way when you have stubble

i shave my arms one day and my legs the next but that is because my hair grows fast because I shaved way too early

it really depends on the time and money you are willing to spend

I have blonde hair so I don't have to worry about stubble but I lightly drag the razor across my arms. It doesn't take everything off, so it looks natural. But there is less hair.

Waxing like at a nail salon works great!!! But when I can't do that I use the hair removal kits from Wal-Mart and it works good but you have to do it more often.

FWIW, there seem to be a lot of deals on sites like Groupon that cover multiple sessions of laser for not a lot of $$$. Arms were indicated to be an area that would have been covered in one of the ~$250 packages (six sessions). Seen that offer for several different spa-type salons in the Houston area over the past few months...would presume similar offers to exist in other major metropolitan areas.
