I’ve been Googling since about the year 2000, when I heard about this newfangled, clean search engine from a lady talking about it on some AM radio station. Very rarely has my Google ability failed me, and yet, it is failing me right now. I’ve searched far and wide (and even tried Bing), but alas, no one seems to have written anything about it.
Body hair softening. Body hair softening broke Google.
Sure, you can find plenty of articles about how to soften those long facial or head hairs, or soften shorter body hairs in preparation for shaving, but there is very little to nothing on how to soften short body hairs with the intention of keeping them. The few tips out there — conditioner, coconut oil, moisturizers in general, ensuring the growth isn’t sharp from shaving — are all things I figured out intuitively, but haven’t helped me to achieve the results that I want. Oils and creams tend to sink into my skin rather than stay on the actual hair.
This might be me coming out as hairy-legged (cue the stereotype jokes). It’s a new thing for me; I may not stay this way if I can’t figure out how to make the hair feel nice and soft and lay flat in its silkiness.
Do you have any advice or tips on how to soften body hair? Have you ever had a question that stumped even the vast Interwebz? This is your cue to share.
