if she still wont let u shave here's what u should do for your legs: rub lotion and vaseline together and apply to your legs it will make it shiny and give the illusion of being shaved.hope this helped.

My mom won't let me shave because she says girls don't NEED to shave (which is probably true, but it's more attractive and if I don't then people will think I dont keep myself clean) and my mom doesn't shave (at least I've looked everywhere and can't find a razor) I'm 11, turning 12 in a few weeks. I remember at the beginning of 6th grade when we started PE girls would stare at my legs but not say anything and that made me feel self conscious. I've tried talking to my mom multiple times, even talked to my aunt who does shave her legs. My aunt told me that in Vietnam (where my mom was born/from) things are different and I've tried talking to my mom about that but she won't listen. At least my other friends who don't shave yet, their moms have given them a time, like when their period comes or a certain age but here my mom said NEVER. I can't go on with this until I'm 18! My brothers friends (girls) have just went behind their moms back and shaved but I don't want to decieve mine.

You wanna know what I did? During New Year's I had two friends over. And they were shaving and I wasn't allowed to. But I did it anyway because I wanted to do it really bad like my friends. My mom opened the door and saw that I was shaving my legs and she didn't get mad. Not one bit. I was actually very surprised.

Sorry 2 tel u but every person I have talk to that used Nair or other hair removal things, said they got alleric reactions (including me)... You get ichy and your legs start burning... Smooth Away doesn't work sorry to break it to u
by poohluvr12 on 7/28/2009 2:35:18 AM
I asked my mom if i could start shaving through a text. She said sure. Then later that day she asked me why and said my legs arent that hairy. Both my sisters started around my age! She now thinks someone is making fun of me because i have hairy legs. i just feel uncomfertable. im in gymnastics and i have to wear leotards. and then you see my hairy legs. i mean, idk!? help!
love yal!(and gymnastics)

by ally_d on 6/29/2009 10:23:16 AM
I love my mom soooooo much and she means the world to me. We are so close! But she won't let me shave! She says that she didn't start shaving until high school. So she's gonna make me wait that long! I like how you gave the advice Lisa, but I'm just scared to ask my mom. I've brought the topic up many times before, and she gets kind of iritated when I bring up the subject. What should I do? HELP!!!!

by greenqueen on 6/21/2009 5:52:25 PM
i just talked to my mom like 5 mins ago about this situation with me after reading this. the advice totally worked!
she is gonna get me somethin like Nair!
by greenqueen on 6/21/2009 5:40:27 PM
instead of shaving, use a hair removal cream cause if u cut yourself you'll have a bad scar on your leg. and if u want to look tan, instead of using tanning lotions and stuff, just wash your body than exfioliate by use an aprocot scrub like st.ives and just put lotion afterwards. it really works and it will keep ur skin smooth
by lizbizz on 6/18/2009 9:28:19 PM
i live with my dad, he doesnt want me to shave because he thinks i will cut myself. he says to wear shorts but i dont cuz of my legs. i wouldnt even wear shorts in 100 degree weather!

if you cant shave then just use (Nair). Nair® gives you waxing without the "ouch," for results that lasts up to 4 weeks. it really works in my opinion my sister looked at a website and she bought one of their products and she loves it. you just apply on your skin and wait for a while and it dissolves the hair on your skin. it doesnt hurt or anything. They're quick and easy! In as little as 3 minutes for lotions, and with no nicks or cuts, you can be free of unwanted hair. you can buy it anywhere. Target, walmart, CVS,kmart. u should really use it. its 100% safe. but you should still be careful.

by Ms.EdwardCullen101 on 6/9/2009 3:29:34 PM
ok who ever asked that question i feel soooooo bad for you does your mom not let you shave your pits either??? bc that is plain gross my mom lets me shave all the time and she doesn't care and its even worse when you have a boy involved!! girl i feel baddddd for you but the advice givin was good i mean talk to your mom explain the situation and maybe once your mom hears the word boy she will let you...or not lol if you dont thn idk what your gonna do!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
by iluvryansheckler on 6/8/2009 4:12:13 PM
Been there done that! My mom wouldn't let me shave until I got my period. (Thank God it came in January)Trust me, although you may go through TONS of ridicule, you'll live through it! (Did I mention I'm going into eighth grade?) And she still won't let me shave, I'm only allowed to smooth away and nair. Its no big deal, you'll live through it. and trust me, she may actually have some good reasons. Listen to the girl who lives in south Florida and for 3 years would ONLY wear jeans in 85 degree weather! hope it helps!
P.S. try to talk about non-shaving products. Like nair or smooth away. They may take longer to get the hair off, but its worth it!

by shanster2vball on 6/6/2009 6:54:25 PM
The same happened to me.
People have noticed my dark hair (I'm European) ever since I was in 2nd grade.
It was horrible, and many of my friends didn't understand why I wouldn't wear capris, shorts, or skirts in the summer.
Finally, when we had to go to the pool, I refused to wear a bathing suit.
My mom tried to get me to use Nair, and then shave.
But I don't like spending unnecessary money, especially when it's not exactly super-abundant, and my childhood has been ruined already.

My mom got me a razor without me asking, because I got my first miniskirt. She taught me how to use self-tanner, too. It would suck not to be able to shave!
by clawh12 on 6/2/2009 8:25:43 PM
If you can't convince your mom to let you shave you should ask if she would be ok with you using the creams that are out there. Nair has a great product, but there are plenty of other ones. They work great for most people, and it's not the same as shaving. My mom lets me use this stuff because I'm kind-of a clutz and she doesn't want me to hurt myself shaving ^-^' hehe.

My mom lets me shave even though im only 12!
Okay ill tell you how i did that. I sat down and had a chat with her that went like this.. Mom I know you told me No but You were a kid once too and you should understand how uncomfortable i am and that i am embarased to go around with unshaved legs with shorts on and stuff. So try that if that doesnt work then talk to a doctor about how you feel. PS Mention smooth away to ur mom and tell her you dont need water,soap,and You cant get a cut at all! Its sold at regular cvs and ect.

by luckykel on 5/30/2009 5:41:27 PM
My mom just gave me a razor and was like "wnna start 2 shave" and i'm just like "sure". this was last summer...
by artist13 on 5/30/2009 12:38:16 PM
i shaved below my knees in the 5th grade behind my mother's back for a year! then, finally, 4 days before the last day of school in 6th grade, my mom was like "i can't believe you haven't asked me to shave yet! go ahead you might even need 2 razors.. you have ALOT of hair on your legs!!" OKAY, MOM!
good luck... even though shaving isn't everything, it does put a load on your self confidence level. good luck, chica!!

by B' girl on 5/30/2009 8:15:10 AM
well uhm not that im any help at this, but my mom doesnt really know i shave. well she probably does but watever. its mostly my sister cause i use her razor but she hadnt found out in a while but just the other night, she was like did u shave ur legs? im like maaaybe...and shes like what razor did u use? mine? im maaaybee...and she said my name like u know when people say ur name like awww why?? then she said ur buying me a new one but i wonder if she forgot. i just dont know how to bring it up with my mom bout shaving. i mean basically ALL my friends are all open bout shaving and like saying i shaved my legs last night and feel them and blah blah blah but im like uhm yea ok. ive been shaving for like 2 years and i never actually got permission from my mom or sister or anyone...

by B' girl on 5/29/2009 5:00:14 AM
heyy, a couple of thinqs...i think itt would b a qood idea if yooh used a tanninq lotion thats spray on bc it will cover up the hair nd make it look golden. i heard some ppl mentioninq Smooth Away nd Venus Breeze shavers-i own nd use both so i'll tell yooh wat i think:
Smooth Away: works qood on arms but takes lyk 15 min. & at least 2 pads 2 work-it takes around 3 wks 4 the hair 2 fully qrow back [4 me].
me nd a few of myy friends tried itt on our legs nd it doesnt work. works qood on knuckles but the hair qrows back in lyk a week.so thats my opinion on that.
Venus Breeze: works perfect on my leqs nd thiqhs..best shavers ive ever used! idk about usinq them anywhere else...
oh! 1 more thinq..nair. i bouqht it nd took it back bc i felt it was a little scary/weird althouqh i didnt even open it. im qoinq 2 buy sally hansens spray on hair remover bc it looks better nd safer.
well, have a awesome nd blessed summer nd make sure 2 check out myy paqe...godsprincess13 ツ

I have Smooth Away and it works pretty well. I think shaving lasts a little longer and makes legs a little smoother, but Smooth Away is good when you're in a rush and don't want to deal with the hassle of shaving cream and the razor and all that stuff. So bottom line, it works really well :]

***HEY GIRLS I JUST WANTED TO TELL MY STORY!***
okay so last yer i was in six grade and insecure and always hung behind my beautiful outgoing friends (kelsey&shelby&gabby) and i would always think that i was ugly or fat or no one liked me. well i had been playing lacrosse for about 3 years then and had a good friendship with a girl (megan) who was like me. we play all the same sports (field hockey lacrosse and skiing) and started to hang out (we didnt havethe same friends making it hard). now my friends were in the popular group and i just happened to be friends with them ( not popular but i didnt care) well i went throw a year like that no real BFs and only a dancing during slow songs at the end of the year when i got a little more confident. i dont know what happened to me over the summer btu i just relized now ( when i wanted to tell my story) that i changed caring more about how i looked (for me to feel better) and wayyyyy more out there and goofy and confident. i became me and still sturgle with friends(finding it wayyy more easyer to talk to guys). well i now have a great BF because i became me and was confident and i think that going to a wilderness over night camp WITH OUT MY FRIENDS (thats a biggy to go alone if u are like me) and practicing making friends and believing in your self! ***IF ANY OF YOU GIRLS OR MODS LIKE MY STORY GO TO MY PROFILE AND ASK FOR HELP ON STUFF IN THE STORY OR ANYTHING AND I WILL HELP***THANKS FOR READING***EMILY***PS SORRY I DIDNT RIGHT MORE AND IF YOU NEED ANY ONE TO JUST TALK TO YOU WIL ALWAYSSSS HAVEEEEE MEEEEEE******

my mom actually encouraged me to shave when i got to the right age...i tried nair once but it stings really badly. it's so much easier to just use a razor!
good luck with this though! i'm sure your mom will understand!

by lizzyd12 on 5/28/2009 8:36:00 PM
I totally know what you mean, you shouldn't worry about nicks. I've had them before but this is what I've learned:
1. don't rush
2. use soap (at least) on your legs before shaving
3. keep your leg in a natural position
4. just watch your razor, make sure you don't need a new one

when i was going into the 6th grade, i decided to have the talk about shaving with my mom. i told her that it was getting to the point that i didnt want to wear shorts in public, and i live in california, so it gets pretty hot over here. i also explained to her that one time i wore shorts and i was extremely embarassed, espically around my crush. my mom understood. she didnt let me start shaving, but she bought me hair cream instead. a couple months later she bought me a shaver and now im fine. for me, it was really embarassing, but now im glad i did it. just talk to your mom and youll be fine.

Haha. My mom woudnt let me shave.
But i did it anyways. I was 13 and pratically the only girl who had hairy legs. She got mad at me but then got over it.
She dosnt mind if i shave alot now. But is still a bit sensative about that. So when ever i wear shorts i try to hide my legs. she just prob. donst like me growin up. oh well
by twilightlove on 5/28/2009 7:20:38 PM
Same thing happen to me!! At first I just shaved with my dad's razor!! but then when I told my mom that I NEEDED to shave: 1 because the hair was gross 2. b/c everyone else could and It was SUMMER!! she Let me so just present your case and don't go accussing her! GOOD LUCK and shave those legs!!

by skatingsarah96 on 5/28/2009 6:52:31 PM
wow! i am allowed to shave and i do, but i just think that that is fabulous advice to try to persuade your mom! if i was her mom i would definitely be persuaded.
by megabegabyte on 5/28/2009 6:49:06 PM

PLEASE HELP MOD!!! and its not like I can be like ur smaller than me cuz i'm shorter and skinnier than all my friends.
by LJSOCCER12 on 5/28/2009 5:11:39 PM

I try to kind of give hints to my mom, and twice she is like "Oh your legs are getting hairy" I ask her If I can shave and She says "Oh shaving is a pain" And I ask for nair and she is like "Oh that irritates ur skin" Then why does she get my hopes up!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1
by frostybunny9 on 5/28/2009 4:32:50 PM
i started shaving at 9 because teasing got so bad. my mom just was exsasperated and told me "well now i guess you'll have to keep shaving." and she didn't complain. just tell her why you don't like not being allowed to shave *hint:everyone else is doing it does not work!!* just keep your cool.

Use a spray on like Nair. It works great and it lasts longer.
MOD AND GIRLS I NEED YOUR HELP
I have a project in school called " is that okay to say"( using word guy for females) we need one internet survey source so I want to use this site. Could you please respondto these questions to my profile? if it doesn't work please respond here.
1. Does it bother you to be called a guy? Why or why not
2. Under what circumstances do you find being called a guy okay or not? ( when alone, with boys, etc.)
3. Who ever called you a guy before, and does it bother you? ( how many times)
4. Comments about this survey, other questions you think I should ask.

For all you girlies who are havin a prob with your Momma and Shavin, (I know I've been there!) It's not so hard!! I was really nervous and I didn't think my Mom would let me since I was only 11 but I just confronted her and hey! Whatdidja know? It worked! She gave me the stuff, showed me how on her leg, did it on my leg, and then waited that way if i had any probs she could help! If your nervous just get it out there cuz it's worth the smooth hairy less legs. Trust me on this one!

by CLubMOD on 5/28/2009 3:19:05 PM
All I did was ask her when we were at the drugstore... She ws like "Do you need anything?" and I was like "Can I get some razors? I want to shave my legs" and she was just like sure.
by lechair on 5/28/2009 2:54:51 PM
ok so your mom doesn't want you tto shave why is it because your to young or she don't thank that your old enough anyway good luck with the chat oh and by the way you don't have to worry some people are praying for hair but not much any way you should be proud of yourself that show growth and you are maturing.

by djjollyrancher on 5/28/2009 1:55:52 PM
If she says no, another possibly good isea i smooth away, or asking her for the cream?
by stylechic21 on 5/28/2009 1:39:55 PM
oh she said that in the advice about cream!! I didnt read that til after iposted astcoent i promise i wasnt trying to take credit for it!!
by stylechic21 on 5/28/2009 1:38:07 PM
What about hair removale cream?
by stylechic21 on 5/28/2009 1:35:57 PM
my mom doesnt let me shave but i dnt have a lot of hair on my legs so it doesnt bother me
by zany94 on 5/28/2009 12:34:07 PM
when i started shaving i first used nair and it worked really well..i started to early and i wish i wouldnt have, i only did it cuase my sister had started and i was jealous. so make sure that if you start shaving you are ready to constantly shave and shave and shave in other words only start if you HAVE to cause shaving is really annoying
by lilhomie0202 on 5/28/2009 12:05:33 PM
oh that stinks, but you could prolly use thoses other produts that you spray on and wash off, those do the trick

I just started shaving at like um... last summer I think, and I was a little later than my friends starting, but my mom said yes after she noticed how BAD my legs really looked! Our shaving convo went REALLY well, so don't be afraid to just try to talk to your mom!!
by dancechick on 5/28/2009 11:48:43 AM
yea but nair and veet basically burn your hair off with out the fire! i had the same problem and my mom said i couldn't shave and i asked her if i could use nair and she said yes. well after my experiance she let me shave cuz it hurts more than shaving! it stings really badly!
by <3jesusfreak<3 on 5/28/2009 11:46:11 AM
aw that sux, maybe your just to oung, or she thinks your too young, try acting older- like helping make dinner

by tennizchick on 5/28/2009 11:41:21 AM
I'm sorry just make sure to be mature about it, if she doesn't let you shave try bleaching your leg hair blond, just spray lemon juice on your legs lay out in the sun. Then your leg hair will be less noticeable good luck!!
by glluver4life on 5/28/2009 11:38:13 AM
ive never reallyyy understood the mom wont let me shave thing. i mean im sure they have good reasons, but my mom wsnt so...uptight...about it. but i mean its just leg hair!! its really not a big deal

I had to make a compromise with my mom. I have to keep my room neat, and I can shave. If I don't keep it neat for 3 days, my razor gets taken away for a week.
Good advice though, Lisa!
by sillyrosiepoodlesock on 5/28/2009 11:19:21 AM
Oh my gosh, that would stink so bad. Idk why she wouldnt let u shave (unless you're in 2nd grade or something, in which case u would b way too young), but the GL people are right, listening can get u a really long way. Peace out people! XOXO

Wow well I had the same problem but my mom told me to shave so I can now.
by alyssajonascullen<3 on 5/28/2009 10:48:51 AM
Maybe she would prefer you to use a depilatory like Nair or Veet?
by willow xx on 5/28/2009 10:48:37 AM
by alyssajonascullen<3 on 5/28/2009 10:48:26 AM
(OH YA FIRST COMMENT!) I think it depends on how old you are. i started at...10. in other words, i started shaving young. if ur 12 or older, its time to shave!! she probably does have a reason not to let you. A lot of my friends started shaving with out telling their moms, and about a week l8r, told them. Now, i asked my mom. I have an older sister, so i guess that why she said yes. It IS a pain, but it makes a great improvement in the way u look!
by purplenay on 5/28/2009 10:38:17 AM
that sounds like a big problem to me!
