MOD! So when i get ready for school and brush my hair and stuff and then i walk to school and by the time i get to school i have a big knot in the back of my head and this is only a 5-10 min walk to my school but it only happens in the winter why?

 

Hey girlie, it's probably the wind. Wear a hood or a hat to help protect your hair on your walk. You can also try briefly putting your hair in a ponytail to keep your hair smooth until you get to school.

I'm ten years old and I have hairy legs. I'm part Pakistani so people there are hairy. Im part Canadian and I'm American. Ok back to the question. My mom also told me in middle school im gonna have to wax, im in fifth grade. I have a few friends who shave. My legs are pretty hairy and I want to shave. My mom and I are really close and I can tell her almost anything but how should I tell her if i can shave. Should i just ask her straight up or email her or....what? Sorry this is really long but I'm curious!! ;]
-Thank You! <3

 

If you can tell her anything then I say you just straight up tell her! Good luck hon! xoxo kerra

MOD MOD MOD im almost 10 but i have hair on my fingers why is it there and should it be there? thanks!

 

Hey girlie! If you look closely enough there's hair everywhere on your body, even your fingers. The hair is there to help protect the skin underneath it from scrapes and bacteria. If the hair on your fingers is really dark, you can talk to your mom about bleaching it so it's less noticeable.

I have almost the same problem but my mom wont let me wax my armpits because she's worried I'll mess up or it will stain or something, but after I shave my armpits 1's fine but the others stubbly I try to shave good, but when I tried shaving the stubbles the razor cut my armpit
How do I get rid of it?




Hey girlie,

Check out this article about it!

http://www.girlslife.com/post/2010/01/19/hair-shaving-armpits.aspx?cp=all

Having underarm stubble is totally normal and shouldn't bother you one bit - it doesn't make you look dirty or bad! If you really want to wax, we recommend going to a salon and letting a professional take care of it <3 That way, it doesn't hurt any more than it has to and you know you're getting it done right.

Ok, so last summer I asked my mom if I could start shaving my legs and she said to wait because once you start you can't stop. She also said I can start shaving my legs once my brother starts shaving his face.It was near the end of summmer so I was fine with it but now it's summer again and my legs are SO much hairier! It's really embarassing and so far, I've only worn maxi dresses. I want to ask again but my brother hasn't started shaving his face yet. We also have a beach vacation coming up! Please help!




Hey girl! 

It's not really fair for your mom to keep you and brother on the same shaving schedule--you two are completely different! I would sit her down and explain all the reasons you'd like to start shaving. Show her your legs, and tell her you're uncomfortable with all the hair--especially for the beach! Good luck!

I have this same problem. I really want to wax, but my mom won't let me. She thinks it's a waste of money, because I can just shave. But I'm not allowed to use shaving cream, either. She says that soap'll get the job done, so why waste money on shaving cream?
But the thing is, I have like no idea how to shave. My mon never showed me how. She just gave me a razor and told me I can shave now.
When I shave, I cut myself a lot. I also get razor burns and little red, itchy bumps that kinda look like zits. I also always miss hair, and the hair grows back by like the next morning.
So, I guess the whole point of this is this: how do you shave?

Hey girl,

If you're getting razor burn and bumps, try using a bit more soap next time, and make sure you're always changing your razor blades regularly. Even though your mom wants you to use soap, it's not too much to ask her to show you how to do it if she expects you to!

When I was in seventh grade and didn't understand that If I shave my legs they would go from being blonde and go a darker color. I never asked my mom I just thought you were supposed to shave. Now I am older and regret it because my legs look awful and I still don't think I'm allowed to shave. I didn't know when I was younger though and I totally regret it! Is there a way to get my legs back to normal? I don't like wearing skirts and dresses near my mom because I don't want to be in trouble. What was i thinking a couple years ago when I did that! I just want my leg hair blonde againFrown I hate feeling weird when I wear my favourite skirt.




Hey girlie,

Since you already started shaving, it's probably time to confess to mom and see if you can officially get her approval to start shaving. Be straight with her - tell her you shaved before and you rushed into it, and now you feel super self-conscious because your leg hair is darker, more noticeable, and needs to be shaved more often. Apologize to her and tell her you feel awful that you shaved without telling her, but now you really want to be honest and tell her you want to start for good. Make sure she knows how this will improve your confidence and make you feel less stressed out! There's no way to lighten your hair again naturally (unless you wanted to bleach your whole leg of hair - talk about annoying and expensive), so this is the best way <3 Shaving isn't so bad - it's just important that you aren't lying to mom about it!

Hey Girly,

If you're eager to shave and you're mom is against it, you'll have to approach the subject carefully. Explain why you want to (but don't say "all my friends do"). Tell her you understand her decision, but you want to make your own. If she's been acting funny lately, she may be stressed. Wait until she is more relaxed to bring up the subject.

Hey girl,

This is totally common, so don't worry! Shadows can also make your pits look darker than they really are. It could be genetic or they might just be dry, so try shaving with a moisturizing cream and using lotion.

So i've been shaving for years, but every time i try to shave my bikini line i get ingrown hairs and razor bumps! I've tried using a new razor and everything! Would using hair removal cream or waxing be better???




Hey babe,

Hair removal cream or waxing could get you a smoother feel, but they could also irritate your skin in their own ways. It's your personal decision which way you decide to remove your hair, so try them out and go with which works best!

You should try to change the blade. If that doesn't help you may need to consider alternatives. You could just have fast growing hair.

Hey girl,

 

I'm not sure about the technique you're using, so I can't say if your hair will grow back quicker with shaving, but as long as you stick to it regularly you should be fine. You'll get the hang of it, just like your friends did!

As for your dry skin, make sure you are exfoliating with a face scrub (this will help to remove any dead/dry skin) and using moisturizer after you clean your face.

okay, so I want to start shaving and I don't want it to be extremely stubbly, is there any type of razor you recommend??? I also wanted to know, if you have to use any cream to shave if your in the shower??? Please write back soon!!!!




Hey girlie,

First off, you'll want to gather up all the materials you'll need. You definitely need a shave gel whether you're shaving in the shower or not - I use Skintimate Moisturizing Gel because the scents are great! Yumm, mango Smile Next, you'll need the razor. All girls have their own favorite razors, but mine are BIC Soleil. They come in fun colors and have three blades for a super close shave. Then, hop into a warm shower to open up those pores and get your legs ready. Get them wet, then use the shave gel to lather up your legs. Get your razor wet, then shave in the direction that the hair grows. Rinse the razor after each swipe...and repeat til your legs are smooth and soft <3

Hey girl,

All discharge has a "smell" - it's kinda gross and, when it's really heavy, we smell it more. It can totally make you feel dirty, even right after you step out of the shower! Yuck. But the discharge should never be a strange color/texture (greenish, chunky white) or fishy in odor. If it doesn't just smell normal - but smells bad - it wouldn't hurt to ask your doc to make sure everything is normal and healthy down there! Smile

Waxing is actually not that bad. I mean.....it hurts but I think it is worth it. I work at a pool all year round with a lot of guys so my legs CANNOT be hairy. Waxing, for me, lasts like 4-6 weeks. But you can also try NAIR or something.

It is SUCH a huge pain in the rear... One thing I found that postpones re-growth is putting moisturizer on your legs RIGHT after you shave. I heard that it blocks the hair from emerging temporarily. I tried it and it works really well. 24 hours and my legs are still smooth!

Hey girlie,

Personally, I just shave my underarms each time I take a shower. It takes 10 seconds! Not a problem at all Smile If you do wax it, I would probably go to a salon the first time. That way, you know it's done correctly so your skin doesn't get irritated/burnt! Ask them if they recommend an at-home waxing product, then try following their professional advice.

Hey girl, your skin is just getting irritated by shaving. Make sure you use lots of shaving cream, and afterwards use women's aftershave, or moisturizing lotion. What also helps a lot believe it or not, is if you use hair conditioner, under the shaving cream while you shave. Helps a lot!
