That’s it. I’m done with being hairy.
90 days ago, in the name of rationing my few remaining razors until the sun came out, I stopped shaving my legs. But now, after truly giving it a shot, I can honestly say to those hairy legged ones out there “I don’t know who ya’ll do it”.
Having hairy legs is itchy and uncomfortable. When you wear socks, the hair gets pushed the wrong way and you end up with that burning and aching sensation like when you’ve been wearing a ponytail too long. Also, I would’ve thought that the extra layer of warmth would protect my skin, making it softer, but instead it must act like a sponge, because my legs are currently devoid of moisture.
Possibly it’s my need for an expanded wardrobe that is pushing me in this direction. Or maybe it’s purely aesthetics. Either way, I’ll wear shorts around the house, but have not managed to wear a skirt to the office in more than 3 months.
I’m blessed with blond leg hair, but I still don’t want it waving to the wider world. Plus, the combination of my salty-dog homemade toothpaste, lack of mascara (it’s on a strict rationing program too), unconditioned hair, and shaggy legs that is putting me over the edge in terms of how sexy I feel.
The leg hair is the one I could do something about.
I think I could go for a 3 month winter stint again, but for now, I’m officially back to being smooth in the sunshine.
PS-First on my list of things to buy (when we can buy things again) is a reusable safety razor.
