I have a 16 year old daughter who won't hardly wear shorts in the summer (and Texas summers are HOT) or bathing suits because of her body hair. Last summer, I figured she didn't know how to shave properly, so I was going to help her..... she is intensely modest, but she put on a bathing suit, and off to the bathroom we went.
Well, let me say, it was really difficult! I kept shaving and shaving, and still prickly stubble was left behind. Her hair seems to grow in all directions, and she has a lot of it -- right up to her cheeks and lower back, too.
Has anyone else dealt with this much body hair? We have tried the hair removal spray, but that is pretty hit or miss, it certainly doesn't get it all. Shaving is difficult, particularly the back of the legs -- and no girl should have hair that high, right?
What can we do for her? Has anyone else dealt with this problem?
