In keeping with my fashion-rebellious lifestyle, last fall when it got cold (that's below 80 F for me) I decided, just for kicks, to quit shaving my legs to see what would happen, hair-wise.
Let me qualify this by saying that except for my head, I'm not terribly hirsute. I don't have to shave the 12 lone stragglers under my arms, and the backs of my calves are bare naturally. But the scientist in me was interested (in a sick and twisted sort of way) in just how long leg hair would grow.
So I hung my razor out to dry early last November. No problem. I'm a shaving sloth anyway. The first couple of weeks was fine, and then it was Long Sock Season. Hubby was vaguely aware of my "project" as I called it, but really didn't pay attention until one day in early February when we were cruising down the highway and I said "Check out my hairy legs! It's really getting LONG!" and pulled up my pants leg.
Scott almost drove off the road.
I ended up deforesting my legs the week before my surgery. In four months the hair grew an inch and a half...and I think it was still getting longer. My question is, would it have grown forever? Or is there some predetermined terminal length?
