Why I Shave My Armpit Hairs!

A woman is the most beautiful creation of the Heavens! I consider (actually believe) that women are the #1 wonder of the world. I highly respect and adore women. So much for the introduction, let me go to my main topic - Why do I shave my armpit hairs. I was curious why 99% of women shave their armpit hairs; so, I researched to find out why. First, hairless armpits look clean (and sexy). Second, bacteria that produce foul smell thrive more in hairy armpits. However, it does not mean that a hairless armpit is odorless. There are other factors that affect how we smell. Here they are: 1. Grooming routine 2. Foods we eat 3. Beverages we consume 4. and regularity of our showers Aside from the above reasons, I hate looking at my long and thick armpit hairs. So one day (15 years ago) I shaved 'em. No more long curly hairs trying to wriggle out from my armpits. I love it! Whew, sorry if you find my short article a bit repugnant! LOL

@LadyDuck Not hairy as well. In fact I don't have hair on my legs and arms. And thinking back in my high school days, I didn't have any underarm hair but I was so jealous of seeing my cousin plucking her underarm hair that I started shaving invisible thin underarm hair. Then they started growing. It's only when I was in college that I realized, if I hadn't shaved my underarm, I wouldn't have had any hair at all!
I used to do any of the 3: shaving, plucking and waxing. I don't just do one because shaving, for example, causes the hair to grow thicker and they tend to make the pits darker. This is why I also pluck - the drawback of plucking is it can cause chicken skin. So I go and use some wax when that happens. Lately though I've started a few underarm laser treatments. Not sure if you've heard of this but each session help lessen hair growth until there is little or no hair left. So you can have hair free pits forever. These laser treatments can also be used for facial hair or leg/arm hair too. it's a bit more expensive though.
@hereandthere it depends - they usually recommend 6-8 sessions. Depending on the hair itself. They check each time you come in for your treatment and no, it doesn't hurt. It'll surprise you though - can't really explain how it feels. I'm thinking of someone holding a rubber band and lightly hitting you with it? It doesn't hurt but you'll feel something. Does that make sense? Hahaha. So far I've had 3 sessions and I can see the difference. The hair doesn't grow as fast as it does when you shave and it's some areas don't even have any hair growing. You can save up for it. I think it's worth it.
