Shaving Suggestions for an 11 year old

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
So, I discovered through a VERY hairy razor, that my 11 year old dd is experimenting with shaving her legs. I am in full support; however, I'd rather her not use my razors and crud them up! Plus, I would like for her to use a razor that is less likely to slice her legs up-I used to nick myself all the time as a teen.

Any suggestions on a brand of a good razor that is easy for a preteen to use, maybe with disposable heads to reduce waste? Also, a good shaving gel that is gentle on her sensitive skin.

Thanks!

What about an electric razor? That way she won't cut herself, and you won't have to keep buying new ones.

I got my dd good ol' Lady Bic. Her hair is not that thick & a razor can last a very long time for her. She uses my gilette shaving gel & way more than she needs.lol

She does cut herself now & then, IMO it's part of the learning curve of shaving. She just went to camp & I shaved her legs for her so we'd get it all. The last time she shaved she decided she only wanted to shave the front.lol I was surprised I didn't cut her, her legs are so tiny in comparison to mine.

the venus razors are nice especially the ones with the big heads less likely to cut yourself... i never cut myself as a teen so maybe she wont either

I think most razors with three or four blades are good. A coworker swears by using mens razors since they are made to contour to the face, which is more complicated than a woman's legs. Nics happen when you are starting out. Practice, practice, practice.

I like woman's quantro razor.
