O mês de janeiro foi escolhido por um grupo de mulheres para lançar campanha a favor dos pelos: elas estão incentivando o público feminino a não se depilar. No Instagram, uma atriz que se identificou como Laura relatou que depois de algumas semanas acabou se acostumando com a ideia de não se depilar, e a gostar do pelo natural. Ela também celebrou pelo fato de não mais passar pelo que ela chama de "episódios desconfortáveis ??de depilação".

"Embora eu me sentisse livre e mais confiante, algumas pessoas ao meu redor não entendiam por que eu não me depilava/não concordava com isso. Percebi que ainda há muito mais a fazer para poder aceitar um ao outro de forma plena e verdadeira. Então pensei em 'Januhairy' (algo como Janeiro peludo) e em testá-lo. É um começo, pelo menos", justificou ela.

Outro texto, publicado no Facebook, informa que a campanha também serve para arrecadar dinheiro para a caridade. O montante será destinado a uma organização que afirma ajudar jovens a aceitar e celebrar sua aparência.

"A aceitação do pelo corporal das mulheres é, infelizmente, uma situação difícil. Somos mostradas na mídia como 'confiantes' quando nossas pernas estão lisas, as sobrancelhas feitas, axilas raspadas etc. A sociedade parece comportar-se como se o cabelo natural que cresce em nossos corpos fosse pouco atraente e desagradável. Estamos tão habituadas a remover o pelo do nosso corpo que estamos nos tornando desconhecidos diantes da nossa verdadeira forma", explica o texto publicado.

This post is gonna be bold, and transparent. Cause that's what I'm all about. For those who know me, you know I'm kinda a wild little hippie chic. I'm not afraid to speak my truth, and that is that I love myself so fucking much, and I dont care who knows it. Which leads me to this post.. In honor of #januhairy, I am sharing my why. I grew up in an incredibly materialistic, ego minded family. Where you had to spend an hour minimum doing your face and getting dolled up to leave the house. Walmart in PJs was just unacceptable.. Which leads me to my next point. BODY HAIR. The naturally growing stuff that sprouts from our pores. That was totally not okay. I was shamed from a very young age.. especially since I had undiagnosed Endocrine and hormonal disorders that I wouldn't learn about til my early 20's. I had hair on my chin, on my belly, even on my back and butt. And because of my family's shame, I went to extreme lengths to remove it... trying Nair, bleach powder.. and mind you, I was about 13 at this point in my life. Fast forward to today. IDGAF what anyone thinks of my body, because I LOVE HER and that's all that matters. I stopped shaving regularly around the time I had kids. At that point, my husband had seen it all, so what the hell?! My family would say things like, "OMG, what does your husband think?? Eww!" First of all, why do you care what my husband thinks? And second, I'll tell you. He worships me like the Queen Goddess I am. Body hair does not define a woman. It doesn't make her lazy, it doesn't make her gross. We've had this stigma for far too long that women need to uphold this fantasy image and it's just not realistic.. I'm here to break the cycle and stand up for all you ladies in the back who had someone shame you for how your body looks, thus unknowingly creating an unhealthy self image within you. It ends here. Be proud of who you are! There's no one like you and you are beautiful! Dont ever let anyone make you think otherwise!! #bodygossip #bodyhairmovement #happyandhairy #selflove #thenaturalrevolution

"Tantos anos de educação, mas ninguém nunca nos ensinou como nos amar e por que é tão importante", escreveu uma adepta da campanha", identificada como Morgie

Hi I?m Laura, the gal behind Januhairy! I thought I would write a little about my experiences and how Januhairy came about... I grew out my body hair for a performance as part of my drama degree in May 2018. There had been some parts that were challenging for me, and others that really opened my eyes to the taboo of body hair on a woman. After a few weeks of getting used to it, I started to like my natural hair. I also started to like the lack of uncomfortable episodes of shaving. Though I felt liberated and more confident in myself, some people around me didn?t understand why I didn?t shave/didn?t agree with it. I realised that there is still so much more for us to do to be able to accept one another fully and truly. Then I thought of Januhairy and thought I would try it out. It?s a start at least . . . I have had a lot of support from my friends and family! Even though I had to explain why I was doing it to a lot of them which was surprising, and again, the reason why this is important to do! When I first started growing my body hair my mum asked me ?Is it you just being lazy or are you trying to prove a point?? . . . why should we be called lazy if we don?t want to shave? And why do we have to be proving a point? After talking to her about it and helping her understand, she saw how weird it was that she asked those questions. If we do something/see the same things, over and over again it becomes normal. She is now going to join in with Januhairy and grow out her own body hair which is a big challenge for her as well as many women who are getting involved. Of course a good challenge! This isn?t an angry campaign for people who don?t see how normal body hair is, but more an empowering project for everyone to understand more about their views on themselves and others. This picture was taken a few months ago. Now I am joining in with Januhairy, starting the growing process again along with the other wonderful women who have signed up! Progress pictures/descriptions from our gals will be posted throughout the month. Lets get hairy #januhairy #bodygossip #bodyhairmovement #happyandhairy #loveyourbody #thenaturalrevolution #natural #hairywomen #womanpowe
