my 10 yr old is always being made fun of cause she has very dark hair over her lip. I've been bleaching it, but was wondering if there is a certain age to start getting it waxed?

No, there is no specific age for waxing. Personally, I'd worry more about bleaching it seeing as there are many sugar-based (i.e. no chemicals) products out there.

I too agree that waxing is a good thing. You can purchase pretty good ones at the drug store and do it at home.

No need for your daughter to suffer with kids teasing her, I bet she'll be relieved.

Good job Mom !!
