  • I don't shave my pits. DH likes it that way. I think it is gross, but I get terrible skin rashes if I shave.
    I am lucky enough the hair is soft.

  • Sometimes I forget and then wear a sleeveless shirt out in public and when I raise my arms...

    I've gone weeks without shaving before. I'll be the first to admit that is gross.

  • I was proud of myself for shaving on Saturday for the pool party. Friday I noticed I had the longest hair known to women (It was like 2 inches long). Well, I shaved quickly and as I mingled with everyone in the pool and jacuzzi, I came home to shower and guess what! I missed the 2 inch long hair so the whole time it was right there as I hugged ppl and took pics! Oh well.

  • I pluck the armpit hair.. gets rid of the roots too leaving no black marks.

  • I shave each and every single time I take a shower, so I'd say......24 hours?

  • i pluck every 3 months...before i used to have it at least every after 3 days..a friend of mine suggested to leave the hair grows and matured(make them longer ,thick and hard) in the whole area of armpit .. then pluck it till it roots. As i observed my hair don't grow fast and long as it is before...

  • Every time I shower so at least once a day. If I happen to shower twice (softball, swimming, spitup, etc.) I will shave it again. I just can't stand the itchy armpit feel. I have to ask, how do you pluck your armpits? I think I'd get a headache spending that much time crooking my neck up under my armpit.

  • every day. i dont like the itchy feeling either and im scared that if i go more than 24 hours the hair will grow and be noticable especially now with wearing tank tops and bathing suits so much.
