When and how did it become common practice in the U.S. for women to shave their legs?
My husband spent many years in other countries and says he met very few women in those places that shave their legs. Although I still shave my legs, I have to admit it can be a pain, especially in colder weather. And I tend to think the practice is one originally encouraged by razor makers in order to sell more of their products. But I am curious as to the specific origins - when/how did the practice began and why it became so popular in the U.S.?
I've been searching for the answer to this question for years and can't seem to find anything. I tend to agree that it was something the razor people came up with to sell more razors. It stinks that whenever and however it started focused on women only. If we have to shave our legs, the men should too.
Probably sometime between when they left the caves and when they started wearing dresses for men to notice them. Even if they were long dresses it did not make any difference to the men when they noticed the legs.
I researched it and found out that since the dawn of time we have been plucking, burning, tweezing, ripping out hair. In 4000 B.C. women used arsenic & quicklime, in 500 B.C. they learned to use pumice stones. You can read more at: http://www.tod
