3 Health benefits of having a massive bush
Once a scary topic, pubic hair has grown into a pubic phenomenon. So much so, celebrities, such as Emma Watson, has talked about her use of pubic hair oil.
#1 It provides a protective cushion
According to board-certified ob-gyn Jacqueline M. Walters, M.D., pubic hair does in fact have a beneficial purpose. “It provides a cushion against friction that can cause skin abrasion and injury; protection from bacteria and other unwanted pathogens, and is the visible result that long-awaited adolescence hormones have kicked in,” she explains. Thinking about pubic hair as a "cushion" brings up the question why we actually attempt to rid ourselves of such a protective cushion.
This natural barrier also protects from viruses and bacteria. In today's society, we mostly wear clothes, but in earlier history, pubic hair was even more important.
#2 It traps in scent from our natural perspiration
Off the cuff, this doesn't sound like a health benefit. However, according to Alyssa Dweck, a gynecologist in Westchester County, N.Y, pubic hair is thought to trap "pheromone scent from our natural perspiration, for sexual attractiveness." Who would have thought pubic hair has always been a part our sexual desires and a way we connected with our partners.
“Suspected theories, some medical and some not, include that pubic hair prevents dirt and other floating germs from entering the vagina, it keeps our genitals warm, and it’s the perfect cushion during sex,” shares Dr. Ross.
#3 Pubic hair removal naturally irritates and inflames the hair follicles left behind
Frequent hair removal causes regular irritation of the shaved or waxed area. When that irritation is combined with the warm moist environment of the genitals, it becomes a happy medium for some of the nastiest of bacterial pathogens. Ultimately, ridding yourself of pubic hair is a way to cultivate a safe place for bacteria.
It's time for us to declare war on the shaven, and keep our pubic hair right where it belongs!
There are some natural products that can help foster a natural bush, or help reduce redness and irritation if you do shave. Bushbalm contains Jojoba Oil, which closely represents the natural oils of our body and can help reduce redness. Additionally, the tea tree oil in Bushbalm is a natural way to prevent and soothe those pesky ingrown hairs.
“Now, in 2016 American women consider grooming their vagina as part of their monthly beauty prep along with their mani-pedi, eyebrow tweezing, lip, leg and underarm waxing, and brow and eyelash tinting.” - says Sherry Ross, an ob-gyn, women’s health expert, and M.D.
