    I hate to shave. Wish I didn't have to.

    i have always wondered about women shaving too....
    but my wife never shaves, she is naturally real hairless.
    My body hair is fairly fine and not really noticeable. I'll shave my legs once a week or so, I like how smooth the skin is, and occasionally any other areas where there is growth, but as I said, the hair is vellus and rather fine and thus not really noticeable, even my leg hair is less about "seeing it" and move about me feeling the stubble and not liking it; and I will shave under my arms every day while in the shower. I use softsoap and Schick razors, typically.

    (If you look along the edge of women skin, you will actually often see a lot of fine downy hairs. The hair is there, even on the face sometimes, but it's just very soft and fine and often not noticeable unless you are catching it from the right angle and very close up. Testosterone thickens hair tremendously; the hair follicles become thicker and the growth becomes more dense all over the body, including shoulders and back for men sometimes.)

    As far as using real soap in your hair, yeah, not the greatest. The problem is that it'll get it clean, yes, but it will also strip all the natural oils off the follicles and potentially leave them dry and brittle. Bar soap can be strong stuff! If you've got awesome hair and it's not really long, I guess it can survive the normal soap routine. Normally women with long hair are advised to only do a heavy-duty shampoo every few days, maybe once a week, to avoid drying out the hair. There are so many shampoo products out there in order to accommodate all different types of hair and length and whether or not it's colored (since sulfites, something in many shampoos, will strip out dyed color) or the hair already damaged in some way.

    Anyway, there are so many ways women can screw up their hair -- with curling irons and straighteners and whatever else -- you really want the natural oil of the hair to remain as much as possible.

    I want to try a straight razor, but the initial costs are pretty up there; so, it's not something I'm going to do on a whim. My hair is thick and black, even after a fresh/close shave you can see the hair follicles on certain parts of my face where it grows in dense. I used to have a beard, but I decided to stop being lazy and am shaving everyday, except on Sundays.

    I use a singlebladed disposable razor. I learned that the blades on these take a very long time to wear down when shaving, but they end up having a short life because they're usually stored wet and in a moist environment. I've been patting mine dry after use and keeping it outside of the bathroom, it make a huge difference.

    When I was younger, I used Gillette gear (three or four generations of it, from the old twin-blade Sensor Excel and forward), but I got tired of the running price tag and poor quality.
    After a period of beardedness, I bought proper equipment; a Mercur 34C safety razor with Feather brand blades, and nowadays I really can't understand how the Gillette company can have that amount of paying customers. One really sharp blade beats 4 or 5 vibrating pieces of dull crap any day of the week.

    I shave currently usually like once per week, because I feel it looks still ok when it grows a few days (actually it has both their pro's and con's to let it grow a few days), and on the weekends I am mostly at home anyway, so I don't think I need to shave every day. I use an electric cutter. It doesn't work perfect, but it does the job ok.

    Shaving is nothing special to me, I feel rather indifferent to it, just like brushing teeth etc.

    Having to shave everyday is the worst part of my job.

    I hate shaving. So glad I'm not male so at least I can hide my legs in the fall/winter/spring in pants. At least you have a lesser surface area to compensate.

    Someday, maybe I'll be rich enough for electrolysis.

    I don't think I'd ever pay someone as much as that guy did for the Turkish shave, nor want to spend that much time on it. I don't like shaving every day, but it makes a difference. Most of the girls I've been interested in have preferred some semblance of shaving, anyway.

    Facial hair can be annoying.

    I don't exactly like shaving either, but it is better having the hair off instead of having it on... sort of like acne.

    Some of it is ok, too much of it is a hindrance.
