What is the short answer?
In recent years, the message about pubic hair has become very clear: whatever you do, get rid of it. Chopping, burning, waxing, sugaring, lasering, altaring, etc. It is unsanitary and has to go.
Often, the word ends with the product you need to use to get rid of that unsightly hair.
But here’s the thing: whether you let your hair down or rock a Brazilian, what you do with your body hair is a matter of personal preference.
There is no right or wrong way to wear your natural body hair.
Every individual, including you, is created as a unique whole being from birth. So any form of body repair or modification is up to you.
The choices you make when it comes to how to present are only for you. No explanation needed.
Why do some people choose to shave their pubic hair?
Most pubic hair removal is ultimately a matter of personal preference. Some people like the idea of a “clean workspace” shave.
Pubic hair was trimmed as oral sex became more common. During periods of high sexual activity, people often visit their gardens.
Hair can trap sweat and bacteria, which can cause odor. This is a problem depending on the amount of body hair.
There are internal and external factors that lead to excess body hair. Genetics, autoimmune conditions, and even prescription drug side effects can cause hair to grow back faster.
In these cases, shaving can improve a person’s quality of life, but it depends on the individual.
Choice of partners, hygiene myths, and personal preference remain the most common reasons people shave.
Is it the best way to shave or remove your hair?
There are many ways to take care of your hair. Shaving is a relatively inexpensive hair removal option that is cost effective and low maintenance. All you need is a razor and a good lather.
Chemicals (like Nair) can be purchased that basically dissolve and wipe away unwanted body hair.
Waxing is another option that can affect hair growth over time with regular sessions. It is suitable for people who regularly remove pubic hair.
Regular hair removal removes dead cells and bacteria that clog skin pores and cause acne and blackheads. Regular exfoliation helps keep skin healthy and happy.
If you decide to shave your pubic hair, getting it right is more important than shaving.
Razors can irritate and cut the skin while shaving. This allows bacteria on the surface of the skin to directly enter the bloodstream.
Chemicals are only safe for external genitalia and can cause burns when applied to sensitive areas. They can irritate the skin if left on too long.
The wax is heated before application and can burn the skin if applied at the wrong temperature. And to get all the hair, you need to cut it exactly.
The skin around the genitals is sensitive. If the process worries you, talk to a hair removal professional. A qualified technician can help you determine the best course of action for your needs. Follow their instructions carefully to ensure safety.
Where did the concept of hair removal come from?
Hair removal can be traced back to the earliest civilizations of Egypt and India, where the first copper razors date back to 3000 BC. Disdain for body hair is fueled by the same motivations as the era: Class.
Ancient Egyptians considered body hair to be uncivilized and of lower class status. Ancient civilizations believed that lice and parasites spread through body hair, which contributed to the removal of all body hair. The smoother and hairless the skin, the more modern and perfect the person looked.
As time passed, men could not completely escape this class war. The beard became the symbol of the blue-collar worker, and the modern man who shaved every day became the baby-faced CEO of the future.
Body hair does not determine a person’s ability to perform in either society, but it is useful for consumers to believe the hype that normal beauty can influence the success of a car.
Entire industries, from hair care to makeup to diet culture, are lining up to reap the benefits of the insecurities it helps sow. Controlling traditional beauty is big business, and big business doesn’t always focus on the needs of the public it’s trying to serve.
Why do some people choose not to shave their pubic hair?
Some people choose to keep their natural look. Pubic hair removal is usually not medically necessary, so there is no reason to remove it.
Some just prefer the natural look. The texture of hairballs can be unique and the pattern can vary from place to place.
Plus, hair removal can sometimes cause folliculitis, cellulitis, ingrown hairs, and other skin irritations. For people who are sensitive to these conditions, the trouble of hair removal may not be worth the reward.
Constant hair removal can also be expensive. The more you do to fight the hair, the more it typically costs.
Permanent hair removal, for example, can cost thousands of dollars. That’s a lot for the luxury of never having to care for your pubes again!
