When to Start Shaving

Deciding when to start shaving can be a big decision. There are several things to look at before deciding. Knowing some of the facts can make that decision just a little easier.

In some cultures too much hair is not really pleasing to look at. Usually hair on the head is not a problem. But, when hair starts growing on legs and underarms of girls they usually like to shave it off, just as boys do when hair begins to grow on their faces.

Deciding on whether to shave or not can be a big question to some people. It's both exciting and scary at the same time. It's exciting because it seems like it's another step in growing up and maturing, and scary because of all the myths that have been spread over the years. Myths like your hair will come back thicker and faster. Your hair will start to come back faster and thicker as you start to mature, not because you started to shave.

The time to start to shave really depends on whether you have hair that needs to be shaved and if you feel that this hair is a problem for you, such as embarrassment. When others begin to shave shouldn't be a deciding factor on when you start to shave.

When you do begin to shave you will need to have a good razor that has a sharp blade, warm water, and some shaving foam or gel. This will help to cut the hair close to the skin and you are less likely to nick yourself. Another option is to use an electric razor. An electric razor is safer to use (it is harder to cut yourself).

As you shave the razor will cut the hair close to the skin. What happens is that while you are shaving the razor removes the hair shaft that is poking out of the skin. After shaving your skin will stay smooth for at least a day or up to three days. Then the hair will begin to grow back, and as it begins to grow back it will feel stubbly.

There are some bad things that are associated with shaving, especially at first as you are learning. Some of the problems you can experience are:

  • Your skin can become irritated
  • Razor burns (especially if you don't use shaving cream or gel)
  • Bumps on the skin,
  • Cuts
  • Skin infections
  • Nicks

There are also other options besides shaving; take some time and investigate the other options. They just might be more suitable to you for removing unwanted hair.

If you feel that you are ready to start shaving then talk with your mom or dad. Let them know how you feel and why you believe that you are old enough to begin to shave.
