How I Learnt to Love my Body Hair

body hair how to deal with it


As ladies, there are parts of our bodies we that may not be the way society expects them to be. That does not mean we are ugly.

It simply means we are different. This young lady talks about how she came to terms with  having hair on her body! (Funny enough, i ‘v always wanted a little more hair on her body)

“When I was 13, I went to the most popular girl in school’s pool party. The other girls there saw my leg and pubic hair, and said my crush wouldn’t like me because of it. I was super confused, so I went to speak to my mom, who told me that I’m human, and I’m beautiful, and if a guy can’t accept me like that, to forget about him.

“If I meet a new guy and he asks why I don’t shave my legs, I tell him, ‘You can shave your legs if you want to, but I’m not going to.’ I want to tell girls that they shouldn’t feel like they need to fit into the superficial standards society sets. We’re covered in hair because we’re mammals! You just have to do what makes you comfortable.”
