Hi, I'm 16 and I've kinda had the same prob, I know how you feel! :S Put (real!)lemon juice on the area and sit out in the sun! I'm not for sure how long, but I guess til you're satisfied! This naturaly bleaches(lightens!) the hairs!
I learned this from my older sister who loves to read, she read the diary of Anne Frank book, and apparently! Anne had the same thing! And she used lemon juice, or so the book says so!
I've also read somewhere online that you can use cucumber juice AND lemon juice. But I've never used that, so I don't know for sure.

Good luck!

Do NOT shave it, wax it, or pluck it, honestly just BLEACH it...totally, I swear it'll be better and you only have to do it like every three months, and the bleaching kit is only like $5 at the drug store and it lasts along time.

there is this stuff by sally hansen if you know that brand and you can bleach the hairs. but if you want to get it waxed i jsut want to let you that when if grows back it will be prickly and your boyfriend wont enjoy kissing you very much. there is also laser removle but that costs tons of money.

well actually waxing your upperlip doesnt hurt that much as much as if i were you i would 13 and i've been waxing since 11 so it doesnt hurt that much...but the thing is the more you do wax the less the pain is!
hope this helps

What ever you do, don't shave it, the hair will then grow back thicker and darker. Try nair, that might work, but that stings if u constantly use it. The most reasonable thing to do is wax it. I know it hurts but you should go for it, it won't hurt that much if you try not to think about it. Hope i helped<333 roxy

Sweetie, get it waxed. It doesn't hurt (much) and you'll be thankful that you got rid of it! Your mom is absolutely right though. Dont shave it or it will grow even darker and longer.

GeekGirl answered Sunday December 12 2004, 7:15 pm:
I used to bleach my hair, but I developed an allergic reaction to the bleach and any nair like products. I can't wax for similar reasons.

I shave my upper lip. It WILL NOT grow in thicker. It WILL NOT grow faster. Period. This is a fact of nature.

It may look a bit thicker, because you've cut off the hair at the thickest part.

queenbianca2004 answered Saturday December 11 2004, 9:23 am:

YES its ok. I have the same thing. See I am hispanic so I get really hairy. Just go to Wal-Mart and look for upper lip nair. all it is is a lip cream. Put it on for 4 minutes then get a wet warm towel and wipe it off. it really works. But make sure to read the directions. DONT SHAVE IT!! I have a friend who shaved hers and now she shaves like a man. And waxing doesnt hurt too much after your used to it. And tweesing is only if you have like 2 hairs. So I hope I helped...

your only option is to wax. yes, do not for the love of god shave it. It will grow in thicker. There is nair, which is a hair removal cream. You put it on, wait a couple of minutes and wipe it away. It's 5 dollars and something.

You can bleach it so the hair isn't as noticable.. But I really don't know anything else you can do. You either have to get it waxed or get one of those electric things that's sensitive enough to shave it.

Shaylee answered Friday December 10 2004, 7:00 pm:
If you are afraid of waxing then get a salon to do it, also another great alternative is the creams you can get from chemists. I would highly recommend Nair, its by far the best on the range in my opinion. Don't shave it, use cream or get it waxed. Much better, and just one thing about waxing- it hurts for that second but after that its fine. Don't not wax because of the pain- plucking is a much worse alternative- but don't feel that you stick out, many many women have this problem.

You can bleach the hairs. Don't whatever you do shave as the hairs will grow back thicker and darker, don't pluck or wax either. - Bleaching definitely, you can buy kits in most drugstores and don't worry, you're not alone!

ManderMuffin answered Friday December 10 2004, 8:51 am:
I think you should shave it off even though your mother says not to. It's not going to disappear no matter how much you pray it will so better to just take it off. Actually, you should go buy some nair. That's a great product it's a hair removal treatment and it ranges from 5-10 bucks. Not bad, eh? Anyways, it loosens the hair and it loosens up the hair and removes it from the roots. ((I use it for my legs because I hate nicking myself and razor burn sucks.))

I used to be just like you! I had dark upper lip hair and it was so noticeable! I tried Nair Upper Hair remover and it works great! Your mom is right, just don't shave and wax it because if you wax it, your skin will become dry and stuff, trust me! Nair only costs a few dollars and you can get it at Walmart! Hope I helped :)

It shoudlnt hurt that bad. It will for only about 3 seconds. But thats it so its really worth it. Plucking it hurts so much because you dont get it all done at once. You doing one at a time. So it hurts more than waxing. Pluss..theres other places waxing would hurt muuchhh more lol. And you shouldn't shave it because it will just come back stubbely, like a guys and it gets thicker. xO ~ Jenna

There's a thing on tv that looks nice for that. You've probably seen the add, it's a little stick that you rub across the area and it removes all hair. It also comes with a free compact! I'd check that out. 14.99 i think it was.

Depilatories are a hair removal cream that you apply and wipe off after five to ten minutes. It's lasts for two to three weeks and the hairs does not grow back darker as would happen with shaving or plucking. It's painless, easy, and error free.
