Shaving makes the hair that comes back thicker and darker. Wax perhaps? Don't shave when there are little hairs, pluck.

according to snopes, that's not true.

although I'm not sure how to help you with your problem. maybe some whitening soap?

well first of all dont shave so very often because when you shave your hair grows back thicker and blacker 2 times than it was before. try plucking them or getting the razor that automatically pulls your hair. its a elctronice that spins and plucks your hair while you move it up and down. it works actually better. but u got to stand the pain!

there are some home remedies to help lighten undearms (such as lemon) but it takes time and very tedious. there are some spa that offers whitening treatment

try buying a whitening cream or lotion in a drugstore. if that doesnt work then try buying one at a brand name counter like shiseido, estee lauder, or clinique.

shaving does thicken the hair and make it darker. its like stubble of a man`s chin. I pluck my underarm and do not have this problem. So just pluck it instead. After a while it will grow back less and u dnt need to shave everyday.

Actually I think the epilator is good... I've recently bought one - Braun and I'm pretty satisfied. Sometimes plucking the underarm can take a really long time and it can be tiring.. haha.. especially when you're dead tired from a day of hard work... The epilator works fast and it removes hair rather well.

You can change the speed of the plucking to reduce the pain.. haha.. but after a while.. u get used to it and wanna get it over n done with fast.

I use it all over.. even at bikini areas.... so pretty good! painful though.. but bearable...

People say can use for the legs as well... but i usually use the hair removing creams for legs...

don't shave it as often as you used to.. pluck or wax it. although plucking and waxing is more painful than shaving, it won't make your underarm turn black.

deodrants can make your underamrs going a bit darker but not balck because of the chemcials it contains - best thing is to get an organic one but I tried one and it didn't really work.

You shouldn't shave your arms. Use wax instead, I do too and my hairs don't grow back as dark.. I absolutely do not regret it!

epilator r pretty good, try using one of those instead of shaving. When u shave the roots dont' come out, that why it makes the hair grows more course and dark. So either try a epilator or waxing.

I don't know how long the epilator is but waxing my underarms takes less than 60 seconds for both underarms. It's very quick. I think if you can handle plucking then waxing shouldn't hurt. I fyou think about it plucking will take time and you're pulling out one hair at a time, but if you wax you're plucking all the hair at once. I find that it hurts for a few seconds. I go to a professional though and they put on this soothing lotion as well so that it won't hurt.

i did tried to pluck my underarm hair the other day. it so painful :blink: . but then i tried it again during shower. it was much easier to pluck out. but then i only did like a few because it's so hard to get a grip of the hair. so i only did half of my underarm since my neck hurt really bad :argh

I think plucking will work better - it's what I do and it does hurt that much. Waxing hurts more.

Shaving will make you hair grow back thicker, so that's why you underarm is turning black. It's your underarm hair showing through your skin. You should tweeze it off with a tweezer. Waxing will dry up your skin and make it rough and dry. Tweezing will take a long time and the first time will hurt like H---, but the second time won't hurt at all. Oh and it will strain your neck too.

Yep, I was going to say what you said except you beat me to it. Don't shave. You'll just end up wasting time since you would have to do it often. And your underarm does become black because of that.

I stopped shaving a long time ago, and turned to tweezing. It does take a long time, and I was satisfied for a while. But then I turned to waxing. I find that works better. After the first couple of waxes, less hair grows back. I also noticed my underarm becoming lighter. Waxing is painful, but you get used to it. And you don't have to do it often either. For stray hairs that grow back, just use a tweezer to pluck them out. I would recommend using the Avon wax strips. They're inexpensive, and works really well.

im not sure if it's the shaving that makes your underarm dark...i know i have that problem & i think it maybe cuz your underarm doesnt get the chance to breathe much? so usually after i shower...i blowdry my underarms...it helps...
