to be alarmed by a split hair ON MY LEG???

I have a fairly casual and changeable attitude to body hair, sometimes I'm bald apart from my head and neat eyebrows, sometimes I grow everything out, sometimes I shave some and not others, it depends on my mood/outfit/planned activities. I'm generally ok with waving body hair about (will happily wear a vest top with hairy underarms) but draw the line at flashing pubic and pubic style hair in the general non naked world so tend to shave my legs up to 'hot pants' level if I'm dancing (knickers get flashed on spins so I wear shorts under full skirts) so I generally am within a week of my last leg shave, but I've not danced much lately due to ill health.

Anyhow, I've not removed anything for about six weeks so I'm in my full hairy glory for the first time in a while. Earlier today I was marvelling at how long the hair was getting on my thigh when I noticed A SPLIT END. On my leg. That's not right.

Brb, gonna dip my entire body in conditioner. Or Veet. Not sure which :-/

DP gets split beard hairs sometimes.

They look like tree brances.

It's both disgusting and awesome.

When he's being agreeable he lets me pluck them

Have you been overdoing it with the straighteners ;-)

There's something so weirdly satisfying about a good split end. Like sniffing your own farts under the duvet.

A leg hair one must be the best!

I see your split leg hair and raise you a split nipple hair.

Ain't the human body a disgusting marvellous thing

Ooh, plucking! Bet that'd be really satisfying...

I like plucking ingrown hairs. I don't allow myself to do it very often.

King-my Dh does too, I'm sure they are the glue that seals our marriage,I LOVE puling them out. They are really odd, not like the other hairs, these sort of come out root and all. <sighs with contentment>

I get lots of 3 armpit hairs growing out of one pore. It's so weird!!

You lucky thing!

Another beard hair puller here. They're much thicker and blacker than the others and come out with a huge root attached - sooo satisfying.
I'm a sporner so love anything like this.

YY root attached and then you can pick the hairs apart......lovely !
