No harm in shavin' hairy thighs

My mom tells me I shouldn't shave them, but all the girls at school do...

So, when I asked my mom about shaving, she just gave me a tube of Nair Pretty Cream. Is there a difference between hair-removing cream and shaving? Is it better to shave? Thanks! My mom isn't much of a help in beauty and etc.


hey girl! yes there is a difference. hair-removing cream uses chemicals to dissolve the hair. if you're going to use it, take some caution and just do a small patch of  skin on your leg first to make sure you don't have a bad reaction. shaving uses a blade to cut the hairs. it's up to you which method you wanna do!

Mod- I heard about this stuff called nair. u just apply the lotionlike stuff and it makes the hair go away. it sounds to good to be true! is this true? and where can i buy nair?


Hey noodle&poodles, yup girly. You apply it, leave it on for a few minutes, and wipe it away with a damp cloth or in the shower. There are also scented ones because the smell is a little strong. You can pick it up at CVs, Rite-Aid, Wal-Mart, Target, Walgreens, etc. Try it out! Xoxo

Hey I shaved my arms for the first time a year ago. My mom told me I was to young to do it, so I stopped. But since it grew back, there are more thicker, darker hairs(the hair on my arms is black) and it is WAY MORE NOTICIBLE than before. What do I do?

Hey there!

That happens when you shave most parts of your body that aren't usually shaved like your tummy or your arms.  The hair always grows back thicker and darker.  All you can really do is either consistently keep shaving it, so it never gets a chance to really grow back, or to leave it alone and let it grow back out so it won't keep getting worse.  I think the second option is a better idea.  After all, everybody has hairy arms.

So is using hair removal cream better than shaving or just an awesome sub 4 girls who can't shave?
Thanx!!! x0x0

Hey girl, just an awesome sub for girls who can't or don't want to shave. There's nothing wrong with shaving either: it's whatever works best for you!

can u shave your stomach and chest without it coming back in all thick and curly??


Hey girl,

I wouldn't recommend won't come back thick and curly like you might imagine, but chances are it will look darker and feel more wiry/thicker than it was before. If you're havin' probs with it now, consider waxing, bleaching, or just lettin' it be Smile

I do shave my thighs, because of my dark colored hair. If I had light blonde hair, i probably wouldn't do it so much. But if it makes you feel good and better about yourself, then by all means GO FOR IT Smile

by hlizsm on 8/12/2011 12:44:37 PM


DON'T DO IT! Just wax waxing may hurt but in time you have less hair to worry about or no hair at one point and it lasts longer

i sometimes shave my thighs.i am on the swim team though so before a meet i always shave there

by cheekymonkey1 on 8/11/2011 6:40:03 PM


I am not very hairy so I dont have to shave my thighs, but I do shave other areas where our hair usually grows. I love feeling smooth all over but I am not happy that I have to shave to get that way.

by luckykel on 8/11/2011 5:52:24 PM


yea, i HAVE to shave my thighs because i have thick dark hair and i dont want to look like chewbacca!

by filaluvva on 8/11/2011 2:26:32 PM


I shave my thighs, but only because I have dark brown hair so it was reeaallly noticable.

by mrslautner2016 on 8/11/2011 1:36:23 PM


i shave my thighs , at first my mom was a bit cautious about it but i talked her into it . it was worth it , i used to hate wearing shorts because of hairy legs .

MOD MOD MOD I was at a water park two days ago and got 2nd degree sunburn on my nose and on bits of my forehead. I have a date on Saturday. What can I do to get rid of the blisters and eliminate the oil on my nose before Saturday? Thanks a ton Smile




Ouch girl! 2nd degree burns take long to heal than 1st degree because in most cases you've damaged nerve endings. I'm sure you are already swearing to yourself to always wear sunscreen from now on, but I'm going to remind you how scary the sun can be! It is way healthier for you to wait it out and not put make up on your skin so it has time to breath and heal. Here is an article about how to deal:

MODMODMODMODMODMOD My mom says the exact same thing. "Don't shave your thighs. I t was the worst decision ever and I regret it." I sounds more like a remorseful apology than a lesson... All the other girls have hair free thighs. I want them too but how can I convince her?



Hey babe. Ask her if you can use nair or another similar product. My mom said the same thing, but let me use Nair. Talk to her about it an maybe show her the article on here.
