I have been bleaching my upper lip since I was 12. I use a cream called Jolen (I'm in Canada). You can find it at any drugstore next to all the hair removal products like Neet, Nair, etc.
I wouldn't wax or remove it at her age. I don't think it will grow back thicker but there will be a stubble when it does grow back that makes it look even worse. When she's older she can always have laser hair removal, but for now I feel bleaching is the way to go.

My ten year old dd has recently been asking about shaving and just brought up that some hair on her upper lip really bothers her and that some kids made fun of her for it. It isn't that dark or thick but it is there and I can understand her point. I have never had this issue and am wondering if anyone has any suggestions for how to handle it. 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.
