Can you shave your legs in jail?
Yes. As a general rule, women’s prisons do have some kind of access to razors so the inmates can shave their legs. But, depending on your security level, there could be some major restrictions. Some prisons don’t sell razors, and instead the prison will issue them for a limited amount of time.
Do they force you to cut your hair in jail?
