    Thank you so much for this video! I have been suffering with my leg hair so much the last 2 years. I remove it every other day but it all grows back fast and ingrown, now they are a scabby mess which I can't bear anyone to see. Your video's given me insight that it's actually ok to just let it grow out and let them heal. I'm done with leg hair removal!

    I stopped shaving my everything when I had to go to the hospital for my schizophrenia and was so beyond uncomfortable in my own skin I’ve always hated my hair because I was made fun of when I was in elementary school Jenny has hair legs they would say and now I can’t imagine my life with my body hair I love it I wear shorts you can clearly see the hair and it’s not bothering me anymore so yeah leave reply if you have one please 😋😚😇

    My ex boyfriend once told me: "But it feels so nice, smooth legs. You should shave."
    That made me so insecure. After we broke up I never shaved again, until I was acting in this play and the director told me I had to shave my legs. I was 17 at the time, nothing to protect me. I was devastated.
    I shaved my legs and hated it so much.
    Now I let it grow out and now and then I feel like shaving. The thing is occasionally no hair will make me feel feminine, but most times my leg/armpit hair make me feel sexy and feminine.

    I've a hairy body. Have had hair removed once or twice when I wanted. Don't plan on removing hair regularly unless I WANT to.

    I don't shave in the winter, and still wear capris. I'm in high school, and most people didn't notice except for a couple guys (who I am friends with) did comment on it and joked about it and were like "eW sOpHiE sHaVe YoUr LeGs" and I was just like fuck you I don't want to don't tell me how to live your life who don't you shave your legs if you want to wear shorts or something like that

    I stoped shaving my legs several years ago and I love it! My legs are so soft and fluffy. At the beginning I was insecure wearing shorts in public but over time I realized that most times people don´t even notice and if they do I find it funny to observe their reactions XD

    u stoped saving because u started a relationship with a girl. and obviously lesbians dont care about those things.. if u wanted to hook up with a guy u would save again for sure because u would want him to like u and give a good impression. i think that what u do is inspiring and i wish we could all let those things of the past just stay there. in the past. embrase ourselves the way we are. but as long as there are women who take care of themselves guys will think that not saving is disgusting...

    Tbh hair removal for women has been around since the Middle ages or even Ancient Rome. It's not like Darwin came around saying that women should shave and everybody started shaving/being expected to shave.
    Apart from that I think everyone should be able to do as they please. Personally I don't like having body hair so I've never had a problem with shaving or being expected to shave.

    My mom, even though I'm moved out, still says stuff about my pits, if they are even the littlest bit hairy. I already don't shave my legs and now I think I'm gonna try not shaving my pits.. Don't know how my husband will feel about it but I know how I feel about it

  • Rafaa Bukhary

    I don’t shave cuz it usually takes a lot of time and the hair comes out prickly. I usually use laser and occasionally waxing and sugaring cuz it lasts longer 👍

  • littleblondemop
    littleblondemop 12 days ago

    First of all did you grow your hair longer-it's so pretty! Second, There was a day when tank tops and arm-pit revealing tops and leg-revealing pants were not such a "thing" so you couldn't tell who shaved. otherwise, I have been thinking about this lately. Interesting topic;).

    I stopped shaving my legs when I realized that no one was really looking at my leg hair. Like my legs aren’t that hairy why would anyone care? It’s a waste of my time to worry so much about what other people may or may not even notice.

    Yes! I personally don't believe in women shaving because they prefer it, feel more confident, feel more clean. We've been told all sorts of lies that now we actually believe them. I'm unshaven and proud.

    I think men and woman should trim their armpit hair because the b.o smell kinda sticks to the hair. I can’t really shave my armpits cause i get like razor burn no matter what I do so I trim

  • LV Teach Me

    It's ridiculous that we follow social norms without question; we don't even know where it all started and if it has an adverse effect. We are constantly removing or changing our natural being. Everything on the human body has or had a purpose. For this reason, we should research it's purpose and think before altering our natural selves. I like what you said: we should do stuff because we want to not because we are afraid of what others will think if we don't do it.
