My mom literally doesn’t care
Ezgi İnce (9 дней назад)
Im 14 and my mom doesn't let me shave. she says that I'll also grow a fucking beard if I wax my mustache. Honestly, thats so fucking dumb. Btw I am going to shave cause I just can wait a whole month for waxing. I shave my armpits anyways. BTW i you want to convince your parents about shaving, don't ask before you shave. shave and show her how fine it really is. The damage is already done so she won't do anything honestly

My mom never talked to me about puberty at all!! But I knew everything! I sometimes steal my mom’s razor and shave anyway. I never got caught and had smooth legs.... lol

I've never shaved my legs. My leg hair is thin and super blonde and not even noticable anyway, so neither me nor my mum ever saw the point.

Historically, armpit shaving was both popular and accepted well before leg shaving. The idea of not shaving above the knee still exists.

My mom doesn't let me shave. Later this month we are going on a field trip where we will be at the pool and I'm embarrassed of my leg and armpit hair. Is it a good idea to just shave without my mom knowing? Someone please reply fast I need opinions should I do it or just talk my mom through it?

Mom told me shaving above the knee is for prostitutes. She also told me that the hair on the arms will grow thicker or coarser. She also told me corsets are for saloon girls and prostitutes.

My mother told me not to shave above the knee when I was younger and is disappointed even now that I am older when I "butch off" my pubic hair. I was fed the same lie that if I shave the hair will grow back thicker, which is false.

I don't want to shave my legs, so I don't. If that makes me somehow less attractive then so be it. I also have thick dark hair and am white so it's definitely noticeable.

I don't shave because I'm lazy...·-·
UCLAJediKnight (10 месяцев назад)
Isn't it just about personal choice? Shave whatever and whenever you like. Use whatever razor you want. I am shocked some women take these myths into adulthood.

I never shaved my thighs because 1: I was too lazy and 2: I don't have a lot of hair on my thighs

I don't shave my legs because I dont care! I do shave my armpits though because I don't like my hairy armpits
EllieLulu EllieLu (11 месяцев назад)
My mom only said that you need to shave to the knee because people will judge you harshly if you don't. She also said that I COULD shave above my knee if I wanted to, just that it was not necessary. .-.
Kilian Rayleigh (11 месяцев назад)
I've never shaved my legs. My body hair is super almost-white blond, and it really isn't noticeable unless you're really close up. I just never felt the need to.

Once my husband got bored and shaved his legs. It was impossible to touch when the hair started to grow back

the only thing i was ever told about shaving was by my dad when in his truck on a sunny afternoon with my brother in the truck he looks over and says you need to start shaving your legs

I started only shaving above the knee 😂 (Because I did it in secret and above the knee was always hidden tbh)
stephanie jerus (1 год назад)
Okay by the time I was 12 years old my legs were really hairy and visible and since I have black hair and my skin was a little lighter than tan (I never really liked going out and btw I'm filipino) so it was visible, I wanted to shave them since I was insecure about my self because ones we had track and field day and one person in our class she was basically perfect and when she wore shorts that day I noticed she had perfect smooth white silky legs and when I got home to check mine, it wasn't as perfect as hers, and I felt really shy to tell my mom that I wanted to shave at least once when I go out to wear shorts (my mom wanted me to wear shorts for a vacation and so I agreed).

In health class we were told that if you shaved above the knee it was be itchy and painful and you would have to do it everyday to keep it from growing in thicker, denser, and darker. HEALTH. CLASS.

omg i tht I was the only one! I first shaved when I was 14, so a year ago, and it was such a relief bc my legs looked like a boy's, an YET my mom wouldn't let me shave but I begged

Kyli Thornberry (1 год назад)
My mom and I never discussed where I could and couldn't shave. I honestly just automatically assumed you were supposed to shave your thighs along with the rest of your legs. I once cut myself on my thigh and my friend asked where the cut came from. After telling her I cut myself shaving, she told me she didn't shave above her knee because her mom told her only whores who did things hey weren't supposed to did that.
Jay Studios (1 год назад)
I totally agree with u
WolframKKM (1 год назад)
This above the knee crap is so interesting. I know my mom doesn't, which I'd assumed was because she never wears short enough shorts/skirts to merit it. I wonder if part of the reason is all this stigma though. She never said anything to me and I've never once shaved only half the leg (I figure since I'm already doing it, might as well finish the job).

Snoot Snooterton (1 год назад)
I don't need to shave above the knee. All my leg hair grows from the kneed down, like hair leg warmers.
Elly Comley (1 год назад)
My Mum told me never to shave my legs because the hair will grow back thicker and darker (I had blonde leg hairs at the time). By age 16 my shin hair was dark and going a little curly, so I shaved it. Pissed my Mum off in the process, but I did it. Weirdly enough the hair above my knee has stayed blonde, so I don't even shave it anyway.
ValeriaC 101 (1 год назад)

My mum and dad are stupid they say that it's grows in darker and thicker 😂😂
Abby (1 год назад)
My mom literally could not care less. When I asked if I could shave she said yes... And gave me no instruction. She just handed me a razor. I shaved to my knee because I thought that's what you do, and she told me to shave my thigh because "you look like a half naked baboon" thanks mom😂

I'm 12 and have been bullied because of my body hair for several years now. I go to an all girls school now and most of the girls shave their arms and legs. I feel out of place. My friends tell me that it doesn't bother them but I still get stared at in public if I wear a T-shirt or a dress. When I got my period, I told my mum straight away but I haven't talked to her about when I was bullied. I'm too scared to ask her because it might be awkward. She hasn't told me I can either. Any advice?
Sharon Vargas (1 год назад)
I am 11 and my mom won't let me shave. the reason is because "If you shave,it will grow thicker".A few months ago,I stole my older sisters razor and shaved my legs anyways.I was scared I will get caught,so I wore pants for the next few months so she could not see my legs.
Amaze Cat (1 год назад)
I have very blonde body hair, so the knee was as far as I needed to go.

I never shave on the upper thigh because I will break out so badly
Camila Goris Burgos (1 год назад)
Have they "scientifically proven" how hair doesn't grow thicker after you shave it in non-white people? Not sire if it makes a difference, but as an extremely mixed girl, it does certainly seem so.
Camila Goris Burgos (1 год назад)
Makes sense. Thank you!
Emily Anne (1 год назад)
Camila Goris Burgos Hair growth is determined by the genetics and follicles, or the "roots" of the hair. These are located under the skin. The growth pattern of your hair will not be truly changed unless you're plucking/waxing/lazering, i.e. messing with the follicle roots. Shaving is like getting a haircut. You're temporarily changing the look of the hair. It looks thicker because you're changing the shape of the tapered hair. It's naturally tapered and smooth shaft which reflects light and makes hair look lighter. When you cut, you 1) reveal the thick, blunt end of the hair, making it look thicker, and 2) reveal the inner hair shaft, which doesn't reflect light, making it look darker. It's just illusion.

I didn't know shaving above the knee was even a problem like I've never had anyone tell me not to or anything like that

When I first shaved, I used an electric razor first and then it took 2 regular razors to finish. I use men's now LOL

My parents don't know I shave I steal there stuff and do it anyway
Kerry (1 год назад)
My body hair is mostly blonde, so I never needed to shave above the knee. But my sister had very dark body hair and my mom always let her shave above the knee. If she didn't, there would be a very clear difference between her bald lower leg and her darkly-haired upper leg.
banina (1 год назад)
i usually only shave to the knee cuz the hair on my thighs is so soft, light and short
BB QUBE VLOGZZ (1 год назад)
My mom doesn't have any of those rules she in fact always told me to always shave past the knee.
Hollie Belle (1 год назад)
i was12 when i began shaving, when i asked my mom about shaving she gave me an electric razor and told me its my body i can shave where ever i wanted.
abselby (1 год назад)
When I was ten my mom forbid me to shave... I did it anyways then cried yo her in guilt. She laughed and said she actually wanted me to rebel. I don't shave above the knee, because I got pretty lucky genetically--I don't grow hair on my thighs!
FramingTally (1 год назад)
My mom doesn't let me shave. No matter how many times I pester her about it, she always says things like "Dont let people bully you"/ "Dont be so sensitive"/ "Dont let it get to you"/ "It'll get lighter as you grow older" which is think is a LIE. I have dark and thick hair and a noticeable mustache, and it makes me feel like complete shit. I can see a lot of girls don't experience this too, since when i search about it all it gives me is "how to shave your legs, things you should know about shaving your legs" bs. I even cried in bed once, but my mom still didn't let me do it. She told me that if I shaved I'd be prone to sickness and that she'd basically rather have my health over my mental state, which is going down to the gutter to depression land, where I think of suicide whenever I look at my upper lip and legs. It is pure hell.
Zoe Johnson (1 год назад)
Please don't commit suicide. I'm sorry for your situation.
FramingTally (1 год назад)
She lets me shave my armpits at hecking least. I'm 13 and I feel like the hairiest girl at my school.
ToaOfAwesomness (1 год назад)
My mum never has and likely never will care about my shaving habits. I did get an electric razor one christmas though which was embarrassing to me at the time. I don't really tend to bother shaving though. Takes time and effort just to have nicer looking legs. If someone's going to judge me on how much hair is on my body, I don't care about their oppinion.
Cordie StrikesAgain (1 год назад)
I started shaving when I was like 9 because I hated having hairy legs and my mom wouldnt let me shave above the knee but I did it anyways
hep the great (1 год назад)
um, I don't have to shave my thighs. I have no hair there at all.
emily Martinez (1 год назад)
my mom never really gave a shit if I shaved above the knee. when I was young I used to shave my arm hair because at the time I thought it made me ugly. I have more arm hair than my dad. even then my mom just laught at me and still does. I overall never heard other girls be told to never shave above the knee. maybe it's because of culture difference that almost everyone in my area is Mexican or the fact I never had that many female friends.

I was raised by a man. He wouldn't let me shave until I grew armpit hair.

I don't think my mom said anything to me about shaving above the knee, but I never had hair there so I never shaved it.
Sarah Houle (1 год назад)
I started shaving the winter/spring before I turned 12 (that summer, for reference) and it was my mom's idea because she knew what it was like being on the insulted end of not shaving when she was my age. I sort of had the up-to-the-knee rule but it was to save time and because my fashion sense was Bermuda shorts. I think that summer I started shaving my thighs anyway because I would go swimming and think it was kinda weird to have half a leg shaved and half a leg with the sun glinting off of leg hair.
Katibeth (1 год назад)
I was also cursed with dark hair. I snuck and started shaving at 7. I would go about 3 inches above the knee so I could wear shorts.
prplSunshinee (1 год назад)
not allowed to shave my legs till I was 14!! because it would make my already long showers longer (pathetic excuse). I was so uncomfortable during soccer since you have to wear shorts. I also quit swimming because of my hairy pits. SO AWKWARD. And to top it all off I wasn't allowed to remove my upper lip at all u til when I was 17 some guy friends made fun of my mustache TO MY FACE and I removed it immediately that day
Mariah Gracia (1 год назад)
my mum told me that if I shaved above the knee that the hair would grow back way thicker and darker and that I wouldn't be able to stop shaving my legs after that because it would just keep getting longer and thicker. worst part I think she honestly believed that.
sasayaki (1 год назад)
My mom gave me that it'll grow back thicker story. She also gave a bullshit story about no one can see it. I have dark hair growing on my arms and legs. Middle school gym class was hell. My mom's pure ignorant evil.
essennagerry (1 год назад)
My mom told me to not shave my legs becausw I don't need to. Why should I? Same with eyebrow plugging. But she did also tell me that shaving makes the hairs grow back thicker - she genuinely believes that though. She's never shaved. I believed it for a while too, first becausw of my mom and then because it seemed so - but now looking back I think the first times I shaved I did it in a time when my leg hairs were just starting to get darker and more noticable. So there's that. But now I know.

My mom said I can't shave my legs till I have to shave my armpits
