I normally shave my legs everyday. I was wondering this; we shave our legs, underarms, and bikini areas. The hair grows back. The longer we go without shaving, the longer it gets. The hair on our head grows long and keeps growing. Why is that men do not hair on their legs/chest/arms/backs/butts that grows as long as the hair on our head grows if they never shave it or cut it?

Because hair on certain places on your body is biologically programmed to grow to certain lengths. If you shave your legs it will grow back to its previous length.

Lol. No pot. Just exhaustion from work, school, and kids. I think my brain has been overloaded and I have crazy brain tonight. I have no idea why that thought even popped into my head. Hahahaha

That's good to know. So, if I ever decided to stop shaving my legs, which I seriously doubt I could ever do, I can't even make it day without doing it, the hair on my legs would grow to be about the same length as a mans?

it will only grow to a certain point.  Most women dont stop shaving long enough to see how long it will be before it stops.  I haven't shaved my legs since september.  My leg hair stopped growing at about 2cm.

Why do you shave everyday? I only have to shave my legs once a week sometimes I can even go 2 weeks with out feeling stubby.

Probably. I've never seen a grown woman with hairy legs nor have I gone longer than a week, but I imagine women's leg hair could reach the length of a man's.

I am very weird about stubble. I'm not super hairy, I barely have any hair on my arms, but just the slightest bit of hair growing back freaks me out. I got in the habit of shaving everyday when I was younger and it is just a habit now. I live somewhere where we practically wear shorts year round and it's just something I have always done.

Do you plan on staying unshaven? Or is it a winter thing and your just letting it stay until summertime and getting them waxed? I'm just curious. I would have gone crazy going that long. I would be picking and pulling them out.
