How come girls don't shave their arms? Like my age teens

my mom says I can't shave mine cause it would make it ugly is that true?

Don't shave it, it will grow back thicker. I wax mine. The pain really isn't that bad and it doesn't grow back as fast or as thick

"Don't shave it, it will grow back thicker"They actually won't, it's an impression.

I have never heard of a chick shaving their arms, this is news to me. I also don't have a cell phone or a facebook so I guess I'm not really up with the times.

I don't have a cell phone cuz I don't see the importance of having to be in constant contact with people.

No but on some girls it makes their hair thicker when it grows out. But I don't see anything wrong with shaving the arms.

This is a great question!!! I never really thought about that. Girls shave their legs, why don't they shave their arms? I would venture to guess that it would just be too much shaving or something, really interesting question :)

Well,it depends...if you have blonde hair,it won't really show,so it's not a big deal. If it's black,and very noticeable,I would think about shaving..I have small little brown hair that isnt really noticeable. I shave my arms every couple of months.

It is just that the hair will grow in thicker so once you start shaving you can't really stop. I mean you could but you'de end up looking like a caveman eventually..

"It is just that the hair will grow in thicker" It will only look like that until the shaved hair falls out. It will look thicker because the tip is blunt.

Lol they should do it more often and regularly, if they do the arm stay smooth. I'm ok with hair and not like everything should be hairless, but once one starts shaving one should decide, if keeping on shave regularly, otherwise just let them all grow back.

No, no, do NOT shave your arms.
It just grows back, and once it does it grows back with twice the amount of hair and much thicker. Just, wax. I know it sounds painful, but it's not ALL that bad...and once it's over, it's over, and you look MUCH better. :)

Our arm hair isn't usually noticed that much. If yours is really dark and noticeable, then I recommend shaving it daily if it bugs you. I shave my arms once and they weren't ugly and it was like a month ago and nothing happened really.

Has anything happened since you shaved your arms 11 months ago? Because I shaved my arms once and I'm really worried that they're going to grow back black and thick.
Report as
Yeah. I shave about once a week. Like I see if it's noticeable and I'm wearing short sleeves I shave, or I shave if I get awkwardly sweaty just there but I don't shave every day by any means.

Ive shaved my arms since the 9th grade...and that was 16 years ago. All females should shve their arms. If you shave your pits, then the arms should totally be done. It doesnt get thicker, just darker. But after a few years, some of the hair doesnt even grow back. It is lower maintenance than legs.. It doesnt take much time. So do it girls! It must be done! ;)

Truly, I don't know where this shaving arms thing came from. I can understand the pits for the sake of hygiene, but the whole arm? Is this a plot by the hair removal industry? I swear I never even noticed a woman's arm hair. Do guy notice or care? Why are you ladies wasting a minute of time on this?

MANY teens shave its just that like you, most teenage girls are not allowed to shave. I think that a better option to shaving is waxing because although it hurts, it is worth it because it pulls the hairs from the roots and you wont end up with thick stubborn hairs
