Don’t Shave Your Bikini Hair- Why??

Ouchhh!!! Getting a bikini wax is no less than a 3rd degree torture! Women who go through this pain will surely agree with me on this. Some, who are less a braveheart, choose to shave the hair off with a simple razor or a trimmer! Good enough! But, while we clean our pubic hair every month, making it a hygiene issue, there are various facts that prove us wrong on this topic. We clean our bikini line not for hygiene issues, but to feel comfortable and more because it is a self-claimed Hygiene necessity. So, if you are planning to clean your little jungle down there, here are 6 reasons why you should not shave your pubic hair.

  1. Body Temperature Controller

It’s a known fact that hair follicles help us sweat out the body heat. The sebaceous gland present on each hair follicle releases a little amount of oil onto the hair which spreads to our skin. As this oil evaporates due to the heat, the skin cools down naturally.

  1. Your Intimate Protector

The hair on our pubic area works as a natural protection layer by preventing dust and bacteria from entering our body.

  1. Contain Pheromones OR Sexual Secretions

What are Pheromones?? Hormones that attract your partner or better known as the Sex hormones! These hormones are retained in our pubic hair when we sweat and thus, naturally attract our partners for the coitus game.

  1. Prevents Genital Warts

Nobody likes to have warts on their body. Whether it is your face, hand, neck or any other part of your body, including your genital areas. So, when you shave or wax your pubic hair, you increase your risk of contracting these genital warts.

  1. Shields You From Viral Infections

According to research results, hairless genitals are more prone to contracting sexually transmitted diseases such as Mollluscum Conatagiosum, particularly when you shave. The virus causing the disease spread by scratching your shaved area.

  1. Reduces Skin Problems

Waxing or shaving your pubic hair, naturally leaves microscopic open wounds on your skin. This causes boils, abscesses or even cellulitis on the shaved genitals. Moreover, you feel uncomfortable for a small duration, especially until the open wounds heal to some extent.

So, now that you are aware of these pointers, are you still going to shave your pubic hair?
