My eight year old has pretty thick (thicker then her sisters was) blonde hair on her legs. She is always worried someone is going to notice how thick it is and trys to hide her legs. This was something she brought up on her own. She tells me she hates her "man hair", her sister is older by 7 yrs so she has shaved legs and so do I. So she relates her hairy legs to her dads man legs.
Would you Nair her legs or make her live like this until she's older? Need some input from other moms, her dad thinks I should just Nair her. I have gone the talking about it and how it's normal at her age etc but it still bothers her to no end.
Thank you all we did buy a tube of Nair for sensitive skin last week it's sitting in my bathroom waiting for me to decide to use it. I'm not against doing it, I guess I was moe concerned that I was jumping the gun and it was a phase for her to be worried about that others girls go thru and are just fine in a month or so.
June 23rd ETA... We did it!! She is SO insanely happy to be leg hair free!! We used the nair I bought and tested a small patch on her upper thigh before using it on the whole leg. Thank you all for your replies.
I think we will have a Nair day some time in the near future as it REALLY bothers her not just a little but a lot. She is also very hairy up her back (always has been since birth) but she can't see that so it doesn't bother her I imagine some day it will bother her if it doesn't thin out when she hits her preteens.
And yes I've spoken to her doctor about her hair but he said it's not excessive in a medical way.

Nair them. I was 9 when my parents finally let me Nair them, it's not going to hurt her any, but it will make her happy.
