In this day and age, shaving our legs is something many women are opting out of but what could their reasoning be? For a very long time hairless legs have been considered normal but as times are changing many women are opting to keep their body hair.

There are many different reasons why someone might choose to stop shaving their legs and all of those reasons are quite valid. If you don’t want to shave you don’t have to. Below I am going to go over some of the reasons why not shaving your legs might be a better idea than you think.

13 Reasons Why Some Women Are Choosing to No Longer Shave Their Legs:

1. Razor burn sucks and some people just can’t avoid it.

Razor burn is something we have all experienced a time or two. For some, it happens everytime they shave regardless of the products they use. If this were an issue for me I wouldn’t shave either.

2. Men don’t have to why should women be expected to?

Some women are choosing to not shave because men are not expected to. This is a statement and movement towards a more equal world. Women should be free to either shave or not shave regardless of what the rest of the world thinks.

3. Some people consider shaving to be a waste of money.

For some, shaving is a waste of money. You have to buy shaving cream, skin products, razors, etc. Sometimes people think that is worth it and sometimes they don’t.

4. Leg hair keeps you warm.

Leg hair helps regulate our temperature and helps keep that chill away. If you prefer being warm growing out your leg hair might benefit you greatly. It is interesting how things like that work.

5. It really helps weed out the jerks.

If you aren’t looking for a superficial partner this will get rid of any potential superficial suitors. All you have to do is mention leg hair and they will go running. I know, it’s kind of sad but this is the world we live in.

6. Some people just forget.

If you are anything like me you probably forget to shave your legs sometimes. I don’t shave unless I feel like my legs will be showing. This is not often.

7. It can really dry your skin.

Shaving is very drying even if you use a good shaving cream. For some, this is much worse and for others, it isn’t as bad. That being said, if it really dries your legs out you might try to do it as little as possible.

8. Are the potential accidental cuts worth it?

Being cut while shaving really sucks. It can sometimes hurt really bad and be quite frustrating. This alone is more than enough to turn some people off from shaving.

9. You have less ingrown hairs when you choose not to shave.

Ingrown hairs suck and if you don’t shave you don’t have to deal with them often. If you are someone who tends to have a lot of them opting to not shave is a very good option. Ingrown hairs can be a terribly frustrating pain.

10. Some people consider it to be a waste of time.

Sometimes people just don’t really see any point in shaving their leg hair. They would just have to do it again in a few days. Some people do it daily but is that really worth it?

11. For some, the stubble is just unbearable.

Sometimes the stubble in between shaving is too much to deal with. It can be sharp and stressful. Don’t get me wrong, this might not sound like much but unless you have experienced it firsthand you just don’t understand.

12. It makes your legs itchy.

Shaving makes your legs super itchy if you have sensitive skin. While some people can deal with it others hate it. Why go through that if you don’t have to?

13. No one has to have a reason.

Women who choose not to shave don’t have to have a reason. They can do whatever they want with their bodies. Shaving or not shaving it is all up to them and the reason is never something anyone else has to know or should question.
