This week, Christel will show you all possibilities surrounding your body hair care. The question is ‘YAY or NAY: shaving, waxing, or letting your bush grow wild and free? We will go through all the different options, from pubic and armpit hair to facial hair. Continue reading, she will explain it to you in great detail.

Pubic hair: It’s all good

In the following video you will see the pubic hair trends over the years (in Dutch). It shows that each woman makes an individual choice and that there is no right or wrong.

The taboo surrounding facial hair

Unfortunately there is even a bigger taboo surrounding facial hair. Less is being written about this topic, which means that the taboo is being preserved. One in four women are dealing with facial hair, which is also called PCOS. Googling will only give you impractical information on how to get rid of it as quickly as possible. These possibilities for facial hair care are: shaving, waxing, laser removal, or simply not removing it at all.

Would you like to further scrutinize the taboo surrounding body hair? A little while ago, we wrote this blog and dove into the history of pubic hair. We are of course interested in your opinion: yes or no to body hair? Take a look at all the different options below and share your view on the topic with me: christel@yoni.care

The possibilities outlined

The possibilities seem endless and we would like to emphasize: do what feels right.

1. Let it grow
A little bit of hair or a wild bush: go for it. There are no rules on how to shape your body hair, even though we have seen many trends concerning its shape and quantity.

2. Shaving
The occasional trim or a daily full-out shave session. You can shave your leg hair, armpit hair, pubic hair and facial hair. Do you want to go completely bald? Our tip: read this article first.

3. Waxing
Go completely bald (Full Brazilian). This means: all your pubic hair will be removed. Also the hair on your labia and in between your buttcheeks. Or go for a Brazilian Shape. This means that you can choose for a remaining stripe, triangle or patch.

4. Laser removal
If you shave, the hair will most likely return stronger. Therefore, a more effective way is to remove your hair by laser. A great solution for women with facial hair. Interested? Take a look at these 7 tips and discover if laser removal is a possibility.
