Alright /fa/, we've all heard of 'No Poo', but what about 'No Deo'?
Been considering this for a while now, and I think I've worked up the courage to try it for a week.
DON'T DO IT. Everybody around you will hate you.
Get a stick of "Natural" or "Crystal" deoderant. It's a big hunk of alum crystal. Kills the stink-bacteria, without all the added shit of the normal stuff.
VERY few people can pull this off. Even if you live in temperate weather, most people, 99.9% have BO most of the time it's not detectable but you never want it to be detectable.
Smelling bad isn't good
Smelling bad isn't /fa/
Smelling bad is for poor and mormans
i don't wear any, but i do shower every day.
people have even told me i smell nice, and for most, can't even tell.
some people can pull it off, it just depends on how bad your bo is.
I just wear deodorant without aluminum in it. Used to sweat buckets and I kept stepping up the percentage of aluminum and then one day I just got straight deodorant without antiperspirant and I sweat much less
Checked them quads but humans are mammals so a lot of our biochemistry is based on smell. BO can tell you things like who you should and shouldn't mate with. Obviously you don't want the social consequences of smelling like ass, but if you are healthy and stay clean you shouldn't smell that bad in the first place.
I don't think I "sweat" because I'm constantly cold
I guess just since I live in abvery humid climate the moisture trapped in my pits causes the body odor?
So I guess I don't actually need an antiperspirant but idk what other kind of deodorant exists
but whatsver I guess it doesnt really matter
its not the moisture, its the bacteria that live in your pits and feed on the moisture.
hypothetically if you just splashed a shot of strong vodka on your pits every morning youd be fine, albeit you might smell a little vodka-y.
vodka with lemon is supposedly a pretty good cleaning agent too
i've used doedorant perhaps twice in my life.. shower max 2 times a week and never use cologne or anything perfumed or anything with soap either for that matter.
>not a neckbeard
>well functioning social life and i get grills
maybe i'll just try hand sanitizer on my pits but the kind that's not supposed to dry your skin as much
mostly 'cause i'm really into using unscented things (i like to smell like just my shampoo + my natural smell without pit stank) and i can never find deodorant unscented without antiperspirant and i don't care enough to look it up but i did hear something about antiperspirant being bad for you
idk, i'll make a thread in a few weeks if it works
No deo is absolutely fine as long as your diet and general health are good enough to mean your sweat isn't full of toxins.
I have sensitive skin issues and haven't worn deo since I was in my early teens. I don't smell bad at all when I do sweat, despite what autists and jealous, naturally stinky people on here will try to claim.
>no metals and shit.
>free of Aluminum, gluten, artificial and animal ingredients
I bought one of these and it actually works amazing if you dont wanna smell like shitty deo mixed with nice cologne
Pretty much like not wearing deo but also you dont have to smell like shit!
Thanks for the response, mate! Apologies on the slow reply.
This guy gets it.
I don't sweat that much on an average day unless I'm training so that's not a concern.
Nice quads. I disagree, I dig chicks' natural stench - I figure they might dig mine.
From someone that has spent long portions of my life without wearing any kind of deodorant or anti-perspirant, based solely on my experience and no scientific knowledge, I can tell you that you should try it.
Longest I ever went was maybe 3 months without using deodorant (showering at least once, in the morning). The first few days/week is the hardest.You will smell when you sweat, even showering daily.
I have very hairy armpits, so I trimmed these down. I showered and scrubbed myself thoroughly at least once a day, in the morning. After a while it ends up smelling just like any other part of you.
Your diet (what you put in your body) absolutely affects how badly your armpits smell. If you eat clean, you will smell clean - guaranteed.
Sweat in itself doesn't smell.
The organisms that live on your armpit hairs, a perfect environment (humid, dark) - and the sweat that they consume - that's what smells.
You can absolutely live a 'normal' smell-free life by going without any kind of deodorant (let alone anti-perspirant, I would never use that stuff).
Whenever a person 'smells', it's because of foreign organisms feeding on the sweat and emanating smells.
I repeat: sweat in itself does not have a bad smell.
I stand that you CAN live like this, but I don't see why you would - sometimes you may not have access to ideal sanitary conditions (like, if you don't shower daily). If you eat like shit, you will smell.
I use deodorant nowadays (not anti-perspirant - the aluminium in that shit stains your whites).
I have asked a lot of people, including many close friends who would be more than comfortable telling me if I smelled bad. I've been told by more than one person that my bo is a clean earthen smell with a hint of coconut. I don't know what a vegan who exercises did to hurt u but we're not bad people lol
This is what I've used for the past couple of years.
A little more expensive that the standard supermarket-bought Axe spray but one of these lasts a while.
