We have reached the point where my almost 11-year-old will need to start shaving this spring/summer. As soon as it gets hot enough for sleevless shirts, we have to make a move. So the question is: What’s the best kind of razor for an 11-year-old girl to use?
When I first started shaving, my mom bought me an electric razor. While I believe it’s probably safer, it didn’t work for me. The problem was the hair was so soft and fine the razor wouldn’t even cut it. So I hate to invest in an electric razor that you couldn’t return when it didn’t work.
So what do you think? What did your daughter or son use when they first started shaving? Have electric razors improved in the last 30 years? Is there a particular brand of women’s razor that seems safer? What do you recommend?
