Dd is 7. She has always been quite hairy - she was even born with hairy shoulders and her back is still quite hairy. She very dark haired too and she's started saying the hair on her legs is horrid etc - it is quite thick and dark - and her friends had noticed it.
Would it be a mistake to shave it for her? It's still v soft. but it is dark.

sad poor dd.

dtd1 is very dark haired and started to feel self-concious at age 10. We used Veet until she and I felt happy with razors (which wasn't until this spring grin)

My dsis started with hair minimising cream at about 7-8 and then progressed to veet. She's now 20 and still can't shave without cutting strips out of her shins confused

Thanks both smile

I may have a chat with her and see what she thinks about veet (I hadn't even thought of creams!)

I'd shave if you don't mind doing it regularly. But only use the ones with the gel strip - Venus? They are brill.
