Well, Dolly Doctor explains the hair line between your belly button and the top of your pubes is actually very natural and becomes thicker and a bit darker during puberty.
Though visible hair above the belly button in girls is less common.
Of course, shaving would only remove hair for a few days and it will grow back quickly. Waxing also only temporarily removes the hair.
So, either way is not a permanent solution.
Girls with visible hair above the belly button, on the chest or very noticeable facial hair could be experiencing a hormone imbalance, so maybe you could ask your mum or another family member what they know about that.
That could be a way to have her suggest a doctor’s visit if you feel you can’t talk to her directly.
Other symptoms of a hormone imbalance include severe acne and very irregular periods.
