ok so this isnt about down there but whatever. most of my friends shave their arms so im startin to feel self conscious (dont know how ta spell that) about mine. my mom says i will regret it if i do and i think shes right but then if i get like goose bumps and my arm hair sticks straight out it looks gross! way embarrassing but normally its not a big deal. what do ya think?

I shave it all down there and while I have gotten bumps I have been able to stop getting a lot of irritation because I use a sharp razor, special cream and dont go against the direction of the hair. One great thing is that I am not a very hairy person so shaving down there is so easy. Some of my friends are even jealous.
I kind of dislike hair and shaving just makes it feel better down there so that is why I do it. A few special tips!
Even on the days when you dont shave, rub cream down there to keep any rashes or irritation away. I do it every day and I almost never have problems.
And when you are shaving, put the cream on the area and let it stay on for a few minutes before shaving, it just seems to soften the hair.
And if you can, use a mirror to help see where you need to put the razor. I have big mirrors in my bathroom so it helps.

cookiedough416, i am 13 turning 14 this july and i have not started shaving yet. I have determined to start shaving this summer, when i will become 14. I suggest you wait as long as you feel comfortable with, i know that it will be a pain to shave and that you don't want to have to do it until you are really sure. I think all of my friends shave and the hair on my legs is pretty noticeable (dark brown) but i just deal with it and know that i am not going to have to deal with shaving for as long as them. Also, start shaving during the summer or spring, not winter or fall because you wear pants and longer things during fall and winter, so no one will even be able to see your legs, so why bother? During the summer and spring is when you wear shorts and your legs are showing. definitely the easiest way to know when to start shaving is when you are very ready and comfortable, and when you feel self-concious or bad about your legs. Know that just because u see your hair as very dark doesn't mean everybody else does though, so maybe ask a friend. And don't let when your friends start shaving influence you!!! as i said, all my friends are already shaving, but i am not!! AND MAKE SURE YOUR MOTHER KNOWS AND IS OKAY WITH YOU SHAVING!! good luck<33!!!
p.s.-soryy i keep adding things but, i started shaving my armpits about a year ago so i would suggest you at least start shaving your armpits before your legs so u can get used to using a razor and shaving to make sure you are really ready to do it!
