What is the best and least painful way remove it? I already tried talking to her about how beautiful she is and how she should accept herself but I also want to respect her feelings.
My daughter have been asking me to let her shave her legs and armpits, of course I understand because I was even more "hairy" then her.
I also know ones you shave it it just grow if not ticker just not as soft, at least in my experiences (I am Latin, so maybe for other may not the same).
So I hesitate about letting her. I know this may not make sense but for some reason I didn't have much problem letting her get off her lip and one brow hair but the legs I still have some problem.
I tweeze her hair between her eyes and wax her lips, yes it does hurt but, but is only a couple seconds and it last longer. I particular don't like the creams because they all irritate my skin and they don't even take all the hair. I have never try bleach but have thinking about it for her legs, so if you try let me know.
A couple years ago I got laser and I love it, it those hurt a little bit but is well worth it, when my daughter grows maybe a lot more cheaper and maybe less painful.
