Today, I decided to bleach my belly hair. I bought some body hair bleach at the drug store, and I used it exactly as instructed. When I removed it, I was horrified to see my belly was about three shades lighter than the rest of my body. The hair was still exactly the same darkness. FML

If you shave, the new growing hair will be cut-off straight at the top in stead of being very thin, thus APPEARING to be thicker and darker. But when it grows back and wears down, it will look like it did before. And don't go saying 'hey when I was twelve my facial hair was thin and blonde and then I started shaving and now I'm twenty and my facial hair is thick and dark!'. Because that's the effect of puberty, not of shaving.

Why is everyone harping on this woman? she's obviously trying to change something about herself that she is sure is unnatractive. Its not her fault she was born with belly hair!

Well lettertjes, my dad used to have soft beard hair in his 20's much after he hit puberty and as you can see with any adult, their beard and moustache hair and stubble is pretty coarse.

yeah facial and body hair continues to grow coarser with men as they approach fifty or sixty years of age, and then it becomes thinner again. But the fastest change happens in puberty.

agreed or pluck the noticeable hairs out unless youre hairy like a man then wax

Yeah, that's a myth and only true about beard hair between the age of 15-25(approx), because it had grown thicker by the time you shave it, not BECAUSE you shaved it. Even places like leg hair, Hell even arm hair, you shave it, it's gone for a week or 2, depending on if you're a man or a woman. I'm glad OP got what was coming to...him/her? for trying to take shortcuts.

I don't know. I really doubt that's true. I know some girls who shave the hair on their hands and it gets so dark. I know it's impossible to tell whether their hair would be that dark had they not shaved it but I think it's pretty unlikely.

(@ #3) Shaving belly hair? Hello, razor burn and ingrown hairs. Plus, bleaching lasts way longer. The skin lightening is only temporary. OP should have done a patch test, though.

It grows back thicker just ask any guy that thought shaving their back hairs would solve the problem now they probly look like a forrest w/ out a shirt on

hair only looks darker because the sun has not lightened it yet.

You are an idiot. That is a myth that has never been proven otherwise.

haha, this should be depicted in a comedy!

Someone's not bright..

c'mon bleaching your belly hair ?

u live in Cali. now try to get a partial sun tan to even it out.....

...in the middle of the winter?!

I did tht th other day too! freaked me out, I think I put to much bleach creme but lol

that's unfortunate, I'm sorry :(

are you that hairy to bleach your "belly hair"?what are you? a werewolf?

Just because you don't have it and it's abnormal for /you/ doesn't make it uncommon. I know a lot of south asian / middle eastern and european girls with hairy bodies. Some guys even find it a turnon. I don't like it or dislike it. If I see girls who don't take it off, it shows me they're comfortable in their own body and are not mindless conformists.
