Are you good with armpit hair?

Rachel is out there promoting her latest project Are You There God?, and a photoshoot and interview was published by Bustle showing the Canadian star with minimal retouching and armpit hair on full display…

In the accompanying interview, McAdams spoke about her decision to show certain aspects of her current body, which comes after giving birth to two children. She notes that she wanted to offer up a more realistic take on body image…


In the 1920s, the new fashion for sleeveless tops and short dresses meant that the legs and armpits of American women were now visible in social situations, and advertisers seized the opportunity to encourage women to shave their legs and their armpits.

The Benefits of Your Armpit Hair!

Armpit hair protects your Skin
According to a 2011 study in the International Journal of Trichology, body hair protects the body against trauma. In the case of your underarms, it helps reduce skin-on-skin friction when you swing your arms as you walk or run. Armpit hair can save you from unnecessary chafing, irritation, or even heat rash, which can happen when sweat and abrasion mix. 

Armpit hair Can help you attract a mate
underarm hair acts as an innate diffuser for your natural scent, helping you spread your musk.


It’s considered a Power Move…
Throughout living history, growing out armpit hair has been used by powerful women as a way to demonstrate a courageous disregard for societal norms.
