A SMOOTH look down below has trumped a natural look over the past few years, but it looks like that’s set to change.
An article from Vogue claims that letting it grow will now be ‘the new Brazilian’ which means we can finally bin the waxing strips.
Holistic ob-gyn Dr. Eden Fromberg told Vogue that she believes this a long time coming… much to our delight.
She said: “Women are becoming increasingly aware that our bodies are a lot more than the visual or sexual playthings that past cultural norms implied”.
So for those of us who can’t be bothered with the razors and the waxing – let’s be honest, it hurts – we can fully embrace the bush.
Plenty of celebrities have spoken out about their love for the bush too, with Hollywood stars such as Gwyneth Paltrow and Emma Watson speaking openly about their pubic hair.
In an interview with Ellen DeGeneres, Paltrow told her that she “worked a 70s vibe”.
And Emma Watson let it slip that she’s a fan of hair down there when talking about conditioning product Fur Oil.
Speaking about the conditioning oil, Emma said: “I’ll use that anywhere from the ends of my hair to my eyebrows to my pubic hair”.
Dr. Fromberg has observed fuller hair over the past few years on her patients, so it seems that more and more women really do agree that the bush literally is the next big thing.
She spoke about her top tips on how to maintain the natural look..
Get yourself some trimming scissors
To keep it trim, get your hands on some small trimming scissors to keep the area tidy.
It’ll keep the area manageable and looking good.
If you’re shaving around the area, make sure to use a natural shaving gel such as Dr Bronner’s Organic Shave Gel, which is only £10.30 from Amazon.
Exfoliate the area to prevent yourself from getting ingrown hairs
Keeping your pubic area well exfoliated is essential to prevent getting ingrown hairs, ouch!
If you use a product such as Fur’s Ingrown Concentrate it will help massively.
Remember to cleanse the area
You need to be hygienic and remember to cleanse down there, the same as you would the hair on your head!
Use a gentle pH-balanced feminine hygiene wash that’s fragrance free to avoid irritation.
Keep the hair silky smooth
Emma Watson’s conditioning hair oil keeps the normally coarse hair, smooth.
Fur Oil is rather pricey at £44 but it’s a celebrity favourite for a reason.
Make sure to let it breathe
We’ve all experienced skin irritation due to shaving our bikini line and it rubbing against underwear before, so one pro of pubic hair is that is protects against that.
However, it’s important to let it all breathe down there, so wear light, breathable fabrics such as cotton in order to keep the V happy.
