Don't Need To Shave To Be Beautiful.

I'm Brittany.
I don't conform to stereotypes
or go by any specific labels.
I'm simply a young woman who wants the world to see beauty as she does.

"There is natural beauty and raw sexuality in letting your body grow its hair as is biologically meant to happen."

 People continue to use the term ladylike in regards to “it’s not ladylike that you don’t shave”, but when I looked up the term ladylike, it didn’t mention anything regarding specific hygiene rules or shaving. And if shaving makes me less of a woman, why don’t I start growing a penis when I stop shaving? WHAT DARK MAGIC IS THIS THAT I KEEP MY BREASTS AND VAGINA WHEN I DONT SHAVE!?

So. I am twenty six dang years old. And I do what I want. So here goes nothin’.

I don’t shave because I don’t want to.

And this really is my primary reason, I just can’t be bothered. And fundamentally, I think that when it comes to beauty rituals like this, we have to realize that “not wanting to” is a perfectly valid reason not to do something. I would much rather waste my time on the internet, watch a movie, read a book,or spend time with my husband or close friends than waste my time in the bathroom shaving my legs every single night. There is something very releasing and refreshing in realizing that you are not required to shave your legs to be considered an “attractive woman.” It’s not that I’m lazy, I just truly feel no reason to.

These have been my feelings for almost eight years now and many of you have never known it because our society is so hell bent on the perfect “image” and I’ve been incredibly terrified of what my “friends” would say about this. But I’m tossing my insecure feelings to the wind and saying “screw it.”

I am TWENTY SIX. Too dang old to worry about other’s people’s opinions if they happen to be negative ones.

Hi, I was reading your last post where you said you are trying to use stuff to grow more body hair, are there any product brands that you have tried successfully which you can recommend for women. I would appreciate your answer

Biotin helps me maintain what I already have and keeps the hair strong.  I’ve used women’s rogaine and while it does seem to stimulate hair growth, I have read that men’s rogaine, set at the 5% instead of the women’s 2%, encourages more hair growth.  Again, adhere to any medical warnings if you choose to use this as a woman.  Vitamin B apparently also helps, although I have yet to know whether this is true or not.  

We miss you!

Hey there Britney, please please I beg you for an answer since I've been wondering around for a while. Recently I have convinced my wife not to shave because I find natural beauty so attractive, the only problem is that earlier before I did convince her or told her about it (at the beginning of our relation ship) she did have some sort of laser hair removal (I think it's called electrolysis) so now she grows very little hair. Is there and thing that she can use under her pits and legs to grow mo

Sorry that it’s taken me so long to respond, I took a bit of a hiatus but have recently been inspired to come back! Anyways, I think it’s lovely that you want your wife to be all natural.  My first question for you is about your wife. Is she certain that she wants to live a lifestyle where she has hair on her body?  Because at one point she did not and that’s why she got the laser treatment.  Just make sure that she’s doing it for herself, along with your support and adoration, otherwise she will flaunt it for you and you alone, but might be ashamed in public.  And we want our ladies proud of what they’ve got!! 

Moving on— in terms of growing hair, I’ve read a lot of articles about women using Mens Rogaine, the foam kind, @ 5%.  There are some medical warnings to please adhere to those.  With that being said, hair follicles should be able to be stimulated, I’m just not sure too much about what happens during the laser treatment in terms of deadening the follicle.  I will do some research on this and let you know what I find out!

hey there, i’m a guy and I’ve been in love with natural women since my late childhood, this just proves that women body hair is a natural turn on for humans, and shaving just came from advertisements and stereotyping. my ex was hairy down there. i fantasied a million times about going down on her after we broke up, she even forgot to shave her legs many times and was always saying sorry she didn’t shave “I’m sorry for never telling you how feminine and hot you were” recently i convinced my girl not to shave (I corrected my mistake by admitting how i loved it body hair) she stopped shaving her pu.. but i cant convince her to stop shaving her pits, arms and legs :( she went to laser therapy to remove hair before she met me, is this reversible by time, will i get the full deal ? I really want her arms and pits to be hairy :(

Thank you

I have returned from a bit of a hiatus! I will be answering all of your messages within the next couple days and will start up blogging once again.


haven’t shaved since sixteen 💥

Hi there! A little while back you mentioned something interesting and different than most women's thinking -- that you actually were looking/hoping to become more hairy, by doing things to encourage/stimulate hair growth. Are you still trying to do this and have you had any results? Thanks.
dontneedtoshavetobebeautiful dontneedtoshavetobebeautiful Said:

I’m still trying to accomplish this, however, I have had some decent results with shaving and allowing the hair to come back in (I don’t care who says that shaving doesn’t make the hair come back in darker and thicker…they should say that to my body hair…) and putting a type of Rogaine for Women on certain parts of my body.  I still have yet to experiment with different types of shampoos and conditioners, although I must say the few times that I have used conditioner on my leg hair/arm pit hair IT FELT GLORIOUS afterwards.  I’m contemplating taking Biotin supplements once again, as I definitely noticed a difference using those as well.

This isn't meant to be a challenge at all...I was wondering given you how you feel about keeping body hair, if you had facial hair, would you keep it also?
dontneedtoshavetobebeautiful dontneedtoshavetobebeautiful Said:

Oh facial hair, a woman’s natural enemy it seems.  

HOWEVER, (and this has been my hardest struggle thus far) I have accepted it and grown to be rather fond of it.  I have soft hair that grows on the side of my face, “peach fuzz” if you will— and a little bit longer hairs that grow back towards my ears/hair line.  I also have slightly soft, and a bit darker hairs over my upper lip, that you can only see if you’re up close and personal, and there are darker, soft hairs under my chin, which I used to try to shave and pluck and blame on medical conditions such as PCOS.  But, after treating PCOS, the hair is still basically there so I guess it’s supposed to stick around.  I know many woman are not comfortable with facial hair because it’s not considered “normal.” 

Me personally? I find it soft and sensual.  Maybe I’ll post pictures at a later time.  

How'd it go at your scans? My partner is totally unshaved above the knee, and her pubes are pretty wild, so they stick out from her undies from the sides, and sometimes the top (depending on the panties). She goes for acupuncture treatments and lies on her back in her underwear for an hour while her (lady) doctor puts needles in her. I know docs are always supposed to be professional (and she always is), but I always wonder if she's really thinking other thoughts when seeing her...
dontneedtoshavetobebeautiful dontneedtoshavetobebeautiful Said:

I actually had to post pone the scans for sometime in the next month or so when I reschedule.  I’ve often wondered what doctors or other professionals thought whenever they see a woman like myself naked.  However, when I was at the OBGYN, she commented on it (you can see my post about that) but it was still very professional and she made it comfortable.  I think her most interesting question for me was how my husband felt about my hair.  

I’m trying to think of other times that I was out in public and wondered what others were thinking…hmmm. I suppose whenever I got my foot tattoo and had to roll my jeans up, showing my furry ankles. Or any time that I go out in a skirt, which  I plan on doing more this spring/summer.  The girls that I work with are very “girly” girls and will probably freak out when they see my legs, hahaha.  

Sorry for not posting much lately, all.  I truly haven’t really had anything exciting to say or show!  The weather is still cold, so I haven’t been wearing anything to show off my fuzzy parts.  If you guys have any topics of conversation you’d like to me to discuss or give my opinion on, or even just to answer any questions—-toss a message my way!

I'll have a drawing for you real soon - I didn't forget, just busy etc. I sent the one you posted, thx.
dontneedtoshavetobebeautiful dontneedtoshavetobebeautiful Said:

Sounds great, thanks! :) I can’t wait to see.

So I have some scans to get done tomorrow and my furry everythings will be sticking out again.  Should be interesting. Will keep you all updated on any questions, responses, or just generalized info on the reaction that I get, if any.
