Recently started to trim my armpits. I say trim, because that's what it is. I can be quite hairy in those areas. I sweat a lot at work and gym. Even if I wear antiperspirant, sweat from somewhere else will somehow find its way there. Sweat leads to smell which is hard to clean out without using shampoo.

I need to keep some hair there just to absorb the moisture, otherwise it gets too moist. So I like to keep a happy medium between absorbing too much sweat and having wet armpits.

Wait,
So I'm not supposed to use shampoo everyday?

I try not to shampoo my hair unless I have to, but I read awhile back that not washing your hair, after awhile, will make your hair perfect.

I tried it for a little while, shampooing only once a week. Eventually I forgot about it and old habit kicked in and I went back to shampooing every day. Hair is dry as hell now and only looks nice wet. If you don't use shampoo for awhile your hair will adjust its oil levels eventually, but that's usually too long for most people to live with greasy hair.

Whether or not to use shampoo everyday is dependent largely on your type of hair, if it's very short and thin then it will get greasy more quickly than longer hair. Most girls for example, can comfortably shampoo once a week, because they have long hair.

I've cut back from daily to maybe twice a week with a touch of conditioner daily and less product, my hair definitely looks and feels more healthy.

I shampoo every other day, to let the dye last longer.

If you shampoo less, please be cognizant of odor. Even if you can't smell your own head, other people can. Maybe it's because I am tall and living in Asia, but SO many times I end up smelling someone's greazy head smell, and it makes me gag. Even if their hair doesn't always look gross and dirty, the smell is still there.

Also, there are a lot of people at the gym who don't shampoo all the time, and when they blow dry their unshampooed hair, it heats up their head stink and blows it all over the room. Again, I want to gag.

I think what would help is to use a conditioner even if you don't shampoo. Conditioners do 'wash' the hair a little bit, and that should mask the smell a bit.

i work in an office, so keeping a well groomed appearance is a must.

my friend's mom is a hairdresser, and she introduced me to her own brand of shampoo. it doesnt give the squeeky clean wash that off the shelf shampoos do. in exchange, my hair doesnt get greasy or oily as quickly. its an even keel, id say. im comfortable with using it every day, or two.
if your hair dries out from using shampoo every day or two, then you're probably using the wrong (or a bad) product.

i shampoo + conditioner.. tea tree oil, doesnt really have much of a scent.

hair cut once a month.

i do get my eyebrows shaped, because they'd be a hell of a mess otherwise.

alternate between wet and dry shave every day.

face wash cleanser, toner and moisturizer morning and night. exfoliate twice a week.

i trim them pubes. lol. nothing wrong with mowing the lawn.

nails always kept short and a bare minimum of white.

i dont use cologne fragrances. if i ever do, its only one spray on the chest after a shower.

I believe in taking care of myself and a balanced diet and rigorous exercise routine.
In the morning if my face is a little puffy I'll put on an ice pack while doing stomach
crunches. I can do 1000 now.

After I remove the ice pack I use a deep pore cleanser lotion.
In the shower I use a water activated gel cleanser, then a honey almond body scrub,
and on the face an exfoliating gel scrub. Then I apply a herb-mint facial mask which
I leave on for 10 minutes while I prepare the rest of my routine.

I always use an after shave lotion with little or no alcohol,
because alcohol dries your face out and makes you look older.

Then moisturizer, then an anti-aging eye balm followed by a final moisturizing
protective lotion.

I think I'm of the type that cares about achieving the 'clean' look.

I shower every day, brush my teeth once a day, and wash my hair every 2 days.
I also tend to put lotion on if I notice any dry areas on my skin. My face around my mouth and nose tend to get dry along with parts of my forearm, the area between my thumb and index, as well as my heels. So in these areas I tend to put lotion but I don't have to do it too often. I usually do it if it's dry to the point where it's obvious (white, flaky).

I shave every day pretty much and use the facial scrubber + cooling gel which I got from P&G from the freebies thread in VOT.

Don't trim pits or pubes but I am considering trimming my pits just for the "clean" look.

I think over the years I've developed certain habits for maintaining a clean and fresh look while minimizing any possibility of odours.

I put on anti-perspirant every day.
I never wear the same shirt two days in a row but if I didn't sweat in them then I may wear the same one again on the third or 4th day after, though in the summer I wouldn't do this for t-shirts.

I have 3 pairs of shoes and always alternate. I guess that's why my shoes never smell.

For socks I wear ankle low-cut ones, usually the ones with the thicker soles and heels, and I try to keep white ones white so if I know I'm going to be walking around in an area with no carpet I will wear grey/black ones instead if possible. The dirtiest my white socks have gotten is the typical grayish tinge that occurs after repeated washings.

Change my underwear every day.

I don't know why but I am sort of a stickler for (own) cleanliness, though I certainly don't bother about other people's hygiene as long as it doesn't affect me or physically bother me (like if there's an odour).

My gf is a clean girl and while I wouldn't mind if she doesn't shave her pits (she's from China but she shaves her areas ) it doesn't hurt that she cares about how she presents herself.

Halo, are you serious? Haha. A female friend of mine asked me if I would ever consider doing laser removal down there. Cause she wants her bf to do it. So it's got me thinking, I really enjoy the clean feeling.

from one female's perspective....I don't really dig guys that are TOO groomed.

If you have a uni-brow: deal it with, but don't shape them
If you have crazy back or shoulder hair: get rid of it
If you have chest hair: its cool
Butt hair: its cool
Nails: keep them trimmed
Facial hair: its cool
Pits: its cool

Pubes: GET RID OF!!!!!!!!! But you don't have to laser that shit....just keep it was fucking trimmed...and don't forget the balls. Using an electric razor is good enough.

Dudes that are completely void of hair.....are weird looking.
