Are you a female teenager?
Got female teens?
I was at work some days ago and some teenager walked in to see me.
She came in because she wanted to remove her body hair and was dreading the pain she had witnessed during the traditional body waxing process of a friend of hers.
I chuckled secretly to myself as I remembered the first time I desired to shave.
Girls, are you starting to see hair in places where you’ve never seen it before?
Hurray, Now you’re reaching puberty.
That means you have an increase in hormones (androgens) that causes darker hair on your legs, under your arms, and around your pubic area to appear.
In other cultures, and among many peer groups in Nigeria, many girls start shaving hair on their legs and underarms at this time.
The urge to wear shorter dresses and show off is high around the life period.
So I will be sharing on Shaving Tips Just For Girls!
WHEN TO SHART SHAVING:
There’s no set time for girls to begin shaving.
You can start shaving when you feel you have enough hair growth on your legs and/or armpits to shave it off.
Talk to some women in your family -perhaps your mother, an older sister who has already started shaving, your favorite aunt, or someone else you trust.
This is important because our female teens need to have trustworthy confidants.
They can teach you how to begin -safely.
WHICH RAZOR TO USE FOR SHAVING
To start shaving, you have to find a razor that is safe, effective, and easy to use.
Use of razor is quite common here. I started out with my dad’s. You could purchase one.
You will find two popular types of razors: electric and manual.
An electric razor may come with a cord, or in a rechargeable and cordless design.
A disposable razor or safety razor can have several blades stacked one on top of the other.
It can provide you with a very close shave.
I will be sharing more in subsequent posts. Do keep tabs.
I love teens, I love teen’s health
