Why Would A Man Want To Shave His Armpit Hair?

Some men think shaving armpit is meant for women. Well, that’s very wrong. Take a quick look at this piece that presents the benefits of shaving armpit hair.

Why Would A Man Want To Shave His Armpit Hair?

  • Armpit Hair And Sweat. There is circumstantial and somewhat vague evidence suggesting that shaving your armpit hair reduces sweating. While shaving your underarms won’t make your armpits cooler – or produce less sweat – the sweat stains on your clothes will be less pronounced.
  • Underarm Hair And Hygiene. The odor from sweat is caused by bacteria and the bacteria can multiply in the damp area of armpit hair – shaving the armpits results in less space for bacteria to breed. And increased effectiveness from your deodorant products.
  • The Aesthetics Of A Shaved Armpit: If you are an athlete or an underwear model – shaving your armpit hair would be of a professional advantage to you. Even if you are a regular guy – no one likes to see hair poking out from under your arms.
  • The Connection With Smell: There are widely circulated opinions that shaving armpit hair actually helps reduce a man’s body odor. Other studies show that a man’s confidence is lowered when he is aware of his own body odor.
