Strange question...


Recommended Posts


So I have been following some amazing people on YouTube and I've been doing a lot of research. But one topic I seem to have a hard time finding information on is... ARM HAIR!


What, if anything, have other girls done about your arm hair during your transition? 

My arms have a dark brown colored hair that is VERY obvious. And it's one of the things I can't stand about my body.


Thanks in advance and tons of luvz!

My arm hair, like all my body hair, got thinner and lighter after being on HRT for a while.  There are still a few hairs there, but not many.  If I find one catching the sunlight, I'll get it with a razor, but mostly I ignore it.


Like all things HRT, your mileage may vary.  And to a large extent, it depends on what you started with.

HRT has really done a number on my arm hair.  It’s amazing too considering I had long curly blonde arm hair.  Now it’s all but gone with very fine shorter hair...it’s truly a miracle if you ask me.


Back in the beginning of my transitioning, I found a YouTube video done by a girl who had the same problem as I had with arm hair.  I didn’t know whether HRT regimen would do it but I couldn’t go out in public without long sleeves.  She recommended using electric hair clippers along with a #1 (the 1/8”) attachment.  So I tried it first with a #2 (the 1/4”) attachment.  Much better but still slightly noticeable.  Then I did it using the #1 that she prescribed.  It was perfect.  Looked like short peach fuzz and totally passable as female.  One important note the girl in the video said was to never to use the clippers without at minimum a #1 attachment because afterwards it will feel like a man’s face with a five o’clock shadow.  I never cut it with anything else other than her prescribed #1 attachment after that.


After a few months of trimming this way, I found myself needing to trim less and less. Of course everyone is different and HRT affects people differently.  In my case, it reduced mine considerably.


Best of Luck,

Right now I just shave my unwanted hair.

I to have noticed a change in all body hair to a finer and slower growth.  I can not boost having less though and I need a weekly shave down of "everything".  

I have only been on HRT for 3 months so I am hoping with prolonged use my hair situation fades away.

I use my electric clippers with the shortest cut attachment. It keeps the hair from being so obvious.
