What is the function of hair ?
First, do we have hair just to keep us warm in the winter? Not so much that. Hair contains the pheromone that is one of the keys to sexual attraction. Basically, come smell my armpits, you’re going to fall in love.
Shaving or not today remains more an aesthetic or practical choice than anything else. So it’s up to you to decide what makes you feel better. Note that shaving too frequently causes a higher risk of ingrown hairs. Painful and unsightly.
Should underarm hair be shaved or trimmed ?
