We all got them, but even thinking about them can make you cringe and gag. Yope, we are talking about PUBIC HAIR.
You are not alone if discussing the hair down below makes you avoid eyes and leave the conversation instantly. It’s a bristly topic (Pun inten-ded).
Usually most articles talk about ‘how to remove it’, what are the trends down there, and what hot celebrities do with their pubes but most of us lack the knowledge on facts about our furry little growth under the hill.
If you don’t know anything about your hair down the chimney apart from the fact that they can be itchy, then read on these ten facts about pubic hair you must have never heard of before.
1.) Pubes go grey with the age
Just like the rest of your body, your curly little cuties will take a light turn and go grey. Who knows before going all grey yours might just give you salt and pepper over your privates for that extra beauty. Mr.Grey was sexy, you can be too (At least for down there). But if you don’t want a colourful pallet and would prefer to embody the natural haircolour of your younger self, then there are hair dyes which are available in the market especially made for your pubes.
2.) They help during sex from chafing
If you have groomed your pubes before and had sex, you would know the burn it causes on your skin from friction caused by two bodies rubbing onto each other. One of the advantages of having a fuzzy carpet is that it helps from this chafing that is bound to happen when get down to do the dirty.

3.) Pubes fight against infections
A great personality once said ‘A healthy bush, a healthy vagina’. Okay, maybe nobody said that but it still remains true. The microflora that is created by your grass enhances the good microbes, absorbs sweat and acts as security guard against harmful particles which can wreak havoc if they enter your intimate parts.
4.) Pubic hair growth can be painful
If you are a person who shaves, wax or pluck, you would know that regrowth is a pain in the ass (wink wink). The ingrown follicles are the main reason why this hurts when you want to go long after getting bored of the barren lands.
5.) Your gyno doesn’t care for your pubic hairstyling skills
Believe us, they have seen it all and they are least bothered if your forest is styled in a Mohawk, plane landing strip or if you like it full on. As long as you keep your hoo-hah clean, you need not to be ashamed or embarrassed. They are more concerned if everything is hunky dory down there.
6.) Waxing around your period can be hell
Its proved that women have a lower pain threshold during the premenstrual and menstrual phases of the menstrual cycle. So if you are planning to have baby smooth skin between your legs during PMSing or your bleeding days then you must be ready to face the pain that impersonates hell.
7.) Shaving doesn’t lead to thick hair
Listen one, listen all as we debunk this myth. When hair grows in naturally, it’s shaped like an arrow — meaning it’s tapered at the end but when you shave them then you cut the hair directly across its diameter. Thus, when it grows in, it looks thicker because it isn’t tapered anymore. Thicc is the new sexy anyway.

8.) Your carpet doesn’t match your curtains
The colour of your hair down below doesn’t match the colour above high. The closest colour your pubes match with is of your eyebrow hair. Doesn’t believe us? Pluck some and do the experiment yourself.
9.) You can go bald down there
Like the hair on the rest of your body, your pubic hair can thin or bald as you get older. Menopause also just adds to the overall thining and pube-fall. So as you get older you can save money on Brazilian or bikini wax. Something good can come out from getting old. Silver lining my friend, silver lining.
10.) Bush is more hygienic than going bare
Most of the millennials go ‘Oh my gawd, you are have got a rat on your privates’ at the sight of pubic hair. But let us reassure you that they are stupid. The forbidden forest shouldn’t be blamed for the odor and the pungent smell. The hair is an easy part to clean; it’s the labia and folds of skin that are more likely to hold onto odors and bacteria. So bare or no bare, you can stink if you don’t clean your sink.
