  • I have been growing tremendous amounts of hair under my armpits !

    This has never happened before - I am 15 turning 16.
    I have shaved under that area numerous amounts of times but recently it just doesn't stop growing!

    Usually I'd shave around every week or so
    but now it's more of a daily thing, is it something I'm eating or is this natural (to grow more hair as you're getting older) ?

    Please help ):

  • I don't think there is anything abnormal about that. I shave daily to every other day, not that I need to, I just don't like stubble and since I'm in the shower anyways, I figure, why not.

    I will say, if I only shave once a week, it would be a whole other story.

    I do think that you are at the age though that it would be more common to start to notice more hair, you may still be going through some puberty.

    • My leg & armpit hair grow back quickly too!
      It's totally normal, and I shave every other day.
      You have nothing to worry about.
      If anything, it's a sign that you are healthier.
