This actually goes along with my Girly Stuff question but really needs its own space.
I have just recently decided to try not shaving my underarms (going 'european', how exotic! ;p ) or my, erm ... nether regions.
Have any of you ladies tried this or been doing it all along? How has the itch/smell factor been - especially if you are no soap/ no 'poo?
Note: I will continue to shave my legs. I just can't get past the squick factor on that one - hypocritcal, I know! But people actually SEE my legs and I just can't bear not shaving them ("half way" she says rebelliously!) ;)
I find myself obsessed with what my husband thinks (although he has assured me that he couldn't care less). Guys, what's your take on it? Can you stand some natural fuzz? Or is it common in your culture and so you think it hilarious that I'm fretting about it?
I really do feel better not shaving. It's like since I stopped using shampoo and deodorant, I noticed that my hair looks better and I have LESS of a smell. It just seems more, well, natural.
I'd love to hear everyone's feedback, opinions, and experiences!
EDITED TO ADD: I just wanted to say that you guys totally RAWKED these answers! I have really enjoyed reading all the responses and (wildy varying) points of view. Thank you all SO much and keep those opinions coming!
