Underarm hair

DD 11yrs has first signs of underarm hair. I know she's going to ask to remove it sooner or later. What do you use at this young age? Shaving, cream?

Op, my daughter is 11 in October. I noted she too was growing underarm hair. I just shaved it for her before our holiday. It’s scary isn’t it! She was a little embarrassed but it was a great way to start a talk about periods x

We are not quite there yet but I was wondering about epilator from the start?

razor here. I used to do it for her, now she does it herself.

Thanks it is scary, they seem so young still and the skin is so soft. I will probably try a razor too.

DD uses a ladyshave. Saver than a razor and easy to use in the shower.

I refuse wax or epilator, too much damage for young skin. And DD is utterly afraid of waxing after reading an article about it. :-)

We started with hair removal cream, then moved on to an electric shaver.

Dd isn’t bothered about it. I’m certainly not going to suggest she should be.
