  • The older 3 girls were about 11 and started shaving legs/underarms at about age 12, my youngest used deodorant at about 9 and she just started shaving her underarms last summer (when she turned 10) because on one side the hair was light, but kind getting long in one little spot. It embarrassed her so I told her she could shave.

  • My oldest was 9 when he started wearing deodorant, and he's only 11 so no shaving yet.

    The youngest is 8.5 and doesn't need deodorant yet.

  • DD was about 10 when she started wearing deodorant and 11 for shaving.
    DS1 was 11 for deodorant. And he just started shaving this past summer, at 14.5

    DS1 is 7. Neither ship is anywhere in sight for him. DS1 always had a bit of hair on his upper lip.

  • He hasn't yet, but he is only 7. Hoping it will be a few more years before he needs deodorant!

  • 14yo was relatively young- but she hit full puberty around 8?- scarey (i had to look that up, it's spelled correctly, lol)
    16 yo was apr. 13
    11 yo deodorant for about 2 years, but not shaving yet. 14 yo and I talked her out of it because she's blond leg hair and no pit hair.

  • My kids started wearing deodorant around 8. I wanted them to get used to it before they really needed it. My sons started shaving once a week or so starting at 12 then gradually increasing. My dd started shaving at 10 (legs and underarms)

    DS2 9
    DS3 only 3 years old so not for awhile (though he sure pretends!)
