  1. Hairbrushes full of hair gross me out. Blech! Clean those things!
  2. Interesting stuff. Checking it out further. Thank you!
  3. A friend just mentioned that she had great success dry brushing her upper thigh and bikini line. Anyone ever try that?
  4. Thank you for the suggestion. Do you use the face one on your legs or do you have the one with the body blade/guard?
  5. Oh! Good tip! I went straight to Amazon. We will look a bit locally instead. Thank you!
  6. She got those this last time and still had the irritation. And she scraped off half the skin on her ankle. Lol! Maybe she needs to try a few more times and see if it makes a difference. Thank you for the suggestion!
  7. Oh, I figured out how to quote I think! We will look into this. Do you have a specific brand you like? Thanks so much!
  8. Electric razor is not something she has tried. We will add that to the list. Thank you! She has tried going with the grain and still had issues.
  9. My 19 yo dd has always had a hard time with ingrown hairs after shaving her legs. She tends to get the ingrown hairs on her upper thighs and bikini line area. She has tried many things. She has exfoliated before and after. She has used tea tree oil on the razor to kill bacteria. She has used cold water after shaving to try to close up the pores. She has used shaving cream and hair conditioner to shave with. She has used baby oil in a warm bath. She has waxed. Most recently, she tried Nair which also left her irritated and the ingrown hairs are starting again. We are at a loss as to what will work. Not shaving is not really an option that she wants as her hair is dark and thick. Has anyone had this problem and found a solution?
  10. Heart of Dakota's Preparing Hearts fir His Glory is a one year sweep through World History. It uses Child's History of the World as a spine with living books added in. I think it's marketed for ages 8 to 10. My big kids had a great year with it several years back and I will use it again next year with my little guys.
  11. My high schoolers did a History of Modern Israel this year with a large booklist I put together. I won't list all of them but if your child is interested in economics, my kiddos enjoyed Let There Be Water: Israel's Solution for a Water-Starved World by Seth Siegel and secondly, Start Up Nation: The Story of Israel's Economic Miracle. My Promised Land: The Triumph and Tragedy of Israel by Ari Shavat provided a good overview the history of Israel. There was one chapter toward the end that we skipped that described the current youth/club scene is Israel that I thought was very inappropriate. All are adult level books but might be accessible to your student.
