Why is pubic hair curlier than head hair or other body hair?

Asked by marinelife (62485points) August 4th, 2009

Or is it not always? I am basing it only on my observation of a selection of pubic hair, which is, perforce, a limited sample.

Unlike most of the hair on the rest of your body, which are a remnant from the time when we needed hair to keep warm, pubic hair is in a place on the body that is relatively warm all the time (or is it just me?), so the function of pubic hair is provide a soft, cushion to protect sensitive parts, plus a bit of slickness to help prevent chafing.

What @PerryDolia said and also because pubic hair grows in a closed and narrow/tight place (underwear makes a lot of pressure) not having enough space to grow normally like the rest of our hair

@PerryDolia: Slickness? Your pubes are slick? I think that means it’s time for a bath…

@teh_kvlt_liberal Thanks for the information regarding the hormones. Do you suppose, then, there is no biological function or purpose? it is just a chemical side effect?
