shoutout to all the girls + women who have thick, dark, and abundant body hair and have to spend time and energy shaving every single day if they don’t want to be harassed by loved ones + strangers alike
shoutout to all the girls + women who decided its not worth their time, even if they only skip sometimes, and endure criticism, harassment, and stigma as the price for their own freedom of time + comfort
Love you all!
This is my unshaven legs and feet, Grown for about a year now!
Anonymous said: Hey I have hair, fine hair on my shoulders, hips, tummy, back (top & bottom) & a little on my ass. I find it abnormal and think about waxing/shaving them but scared it will become thicker. Do you have any ideas on how to get rid of them? Especially the hair on my shoulders I don't know of anyother who has this for a female, is it normal? I wish I was body hair confident but I'm not & find myself abnormally hairy and disgusting. Apologies for the rant/question, just needed to get it of my chest
Hello lovely! i do have hair on my shoulders! and actually everywhere where you say you have lol it’s probably not extremely common but some girls have it, don’t worry! And the fact that the hair grows thicker when you shave is actually a myth. I know i answered a question about that a while ago but i can’t find it right now, you can check the ask archive for it or simply google it. So you could totally shave/wax/bleach if you want to, experiment a bit to find the best thing for you :)
And you’re not disgusting, a lot of girls have the same amount of hair that you or even more, stop saying that right now, you’ll only feel better. The vocabulary we use influence our perception of our world.
I wish u the best <3
I decided to publish all the questions/submissions i get as anon because of the amount of hair fetischists/porn blogs following me. I don’t think any of you would like them to follow your personal blogs too.
Also i don’t always see notifications for the messages i received so i apologies (again) for the time it takes me to answer.
I hope you’re all going well <3
I’ve recently come across something that might be extremely beneficial to you and your follows.
I don’t have PCOS, but do have an annoying relationship with body hair and irregular periods. I’ve always suspected this was due to excess testosterone, and after some research found that spearmint leaves supposedly reduce free androgens in the blood (also the source of male-pattern hair in women). As you can imagine I was skeptical, but started taking spearmint supplements twice a day (it’s been a month now). Honestly, I’m shocked. Two weeks ago I shaved my legs, and almost none of the hair has grown back. Usually I would see hair regrowth the same day. So far there is no change to hair in other places, or my periods, but I suspect after taking the spearmint for longer, this might change. Anyway, it’s been worth it just for the effect it’s had on my legs. I’m sure the spearmint will work differently for everyone, but it’s an interesting little experiment.
Anonymous said: to the anon asking about ingrown hair! and well, everyone else too. I got ingrowns really often, but then i started to use vigrin coconut oil and o m g it's the best. Use it when you shave, after you shave, when your skin is feelin sore or just when you feel like you need it. It has helped me alot! I also use it to wash my face sometimes, really helps me with my acne
Anonymous said: Hi! I have a problem. I have an awful amount of body hair, but since my mom found out that I cut myself with razors, she has taken them all away, and I can't shave anymore. I still have one razor left, but I've used it so much that now it pratically doesn't shave anymore. I can't go buy new ones on my own because she would find out. I'm so embarassed and I don't know what to do. I don't want people to see my body hair, plus I feel the urge to cut. Do you have any advice? Thanks
Hello! I found a masterpost on how cope with self harming here. There’s a lot of alternatives explained so i hope you will find one that works for you.
I personally never cut, so i think you better refer to the masterpost for that, but i have dealt a looot with depression. I know how hard it is to deal with an overwhelming pain. When i had those moments (of really intense but quite short emotional pain), the hardest but also the best thing you can do is get out of bed or your room and do something. Anything. Even the most simple thing helps rather than stating in that catatonic sate of pain. Drink a glass of juice, eat something, text a friend, watch tv, etc.
More generally, if you think it would help you could either go see a psychologist at your school or talk to your mom to see one. If you feel you need help, please talk about it to someone, that can be a friend, your parents or any adult you trust. It’s really difficult but it will help in the long run.
For the hair, there are other alternatives, you can use epilating cream (don’t leave it on too long, it can damage the skin and don’t use it near the vulva), an epilator or wax (maybe not wax for armpits or pubic area, the hair there is really coarse so i find the wax doesn’t really work for me, but can be used in other places, just make a patch test to be sure your skin is ok with it).
I send positive energy your way <3
