Stomach hair may be bleached naturally with homemade solutions, or it may be chemically bleached with over-the-counter bleaching products. Homemade bleaches can be made with items commonly found in the kitchen. According to Beauty Ramp, foods that contain natural bleaching properties include tomatoes, lemons and papayas.
Bleaching body hair will not cause it to fall off; it will simply mask darker hair by taking the color away. When using chemical bleaches, it's important to do a skin test on a small area before rubbing the bleaching solution over a larger part of the body. This helps to rule out any allergic reactions or other skin irritation due to the general harshness of the chemical. Beauty Ramp also recommends following the instructions included in the bleaching package very carefully to avoid any mishaps or skin burns.
WebMD explains that bleaching, especially for coarse, dark hair, requires frequent touch-ups, sometimes as often as every 1 to 2 weeks. Natural solutions may also require diligent upkeep and, additionally, they may need a longer period of time to take effect. However, one of the biggest benefits of a natural chemical treatment, says Beauty Ramp, is that it is less harsh on the skin.
