Ever waxed your arms?

Postby wizz » Mon Oct 20, 2008 3:43 pm

As a sufferer of PCOS I have a LOT of extra unwanted hair. I have my face lasered regularly but I am haunted by my black hairy arms. I am a fair person with blonde hair. I have tried bleaching but the dark hairs are back within days.
Has anyone ever waxed their arms - professionally? Or are their alternatives?

Thanks, Wizz :D

I don't because I feel I have enough self maintenance and don't want to add any extra! My friend does though and she loooves it.
If the hairs are dark and you decide not to wax, you could bleach, I think?

I also have pcos & find that having my arms waxed, say every 3 weeks or so keeps things in check!
