Plucking, waxing and shaving won’t remove it.
Any lotions or something that can permanently remove unwanted belly hair? It’s embarassing to me because, as a woman, I’m given the feeling that only freaks have this :'(

For most of my adult life I had dark hair under my belly button and on my lower abdomen, which waa very noticeable as I have fair skin. After years of waxing, I started IPL treatments and after about 3-4 sessions the belly hair had completely disappeared. Be aware that IPL treatments work best when there is a big contrast between skin and hair colour -hence the success in my case. Also, hair on different body parts responds differently to IPL. The areas where hair disappeared the fastest for me were bikini line, belly and neck. Although I have heard that it should also be effective on underarm hair. Hope this helps.

I think bleaching is the way to go, as everybody has natural hair on their stomach- for some people it`s dark, for some it`s light. I think it would look more natural if you just bleached it blonde, because your body is covered in fine hair (i think its called villus hair?something like that).

shaving will bring stubble and although I have no problem with belly hair (I like all have it and my hair is dark) it doesn`t bother me though as it blends in with my complexion.
Finding what works best for you is a finger away call your local beauty therapist and she`ll assist you in no time!
Good luck and let us know how you go!

Throughout history, there have been many different yet temporary solutions for stomach hair removal including shaving, waxing and depilatory creams. While shaving is an “at home” solution for the removal of unwanted stomach hair, it is not a permanent solution to this embarrassing problem. After shaving, stomach hair grows back darker and coarser than its initial growth pattern. Waxing was invented as a longer term solution, involving the application of hot wax to the offending stomach area. One of the major disadvantages however, is that waxing removes stomach hair immediately but with hair growth resulting within 1 to 4 weeks. One of the easiest, least painful and most cost effective stomach hair removal solutions has been the depilatory cream. While it can be argued that the cream makes it easier to remove the hair by changing it`s chemical makeup, it needs to be used every few days.
Laser hair removal is the most effective solution for permanent hair removal, making the area more attractive in the shortest amount of time. The use of modern laser hair removal technologies means hair can be treated quickly and effectively usually within approximately 4 to 8 treatment sessions. it is also very effective on stomach hair.Paulina Saliba is a professional laser specialist at Results Laser Clinic.

Just bleach it! I have the same problem and I just bleach and shave sometimes if I really don`t like it. It takes ages to grow back
I wouldn`t trust a laser on such a sensitive area.
Also try putting some lemon juice (fresh) on your tummy and lay down in the sun (if you get any till Spring) for a while and watch the colour fade away. And if you`re still not happy then try laser hair removal.

lol abrazozbesos i have a snail trail too. i might get it lasered off when i have the money, and epilators sucks BIG time. i bought one, takes too long, pains too much and is just really a torture machine. will NEVER use it again. i want to get it lasered off by a professional cosmetic doctor because i saw on today tonight that some of the machines that beauticians have are faulty and a lady got 2nd degree burns from the IPL. that and you probs need less sessions with professionals, rather than cheap but frequent sessions from beauticians.
