Best Way To Shave Pubic Hair

Dear BeingGirl Experts,

This is kind of embarrassing, but I shave my pubic hair. When I let it grow, it looks ugly and itches me. When I shave it, the area feels sensitive, and I get little red bumps. I don't shave dry, so that's not the problem. What should I do?

Dear Rory,

Razor bumps appear when hair curls and brows back into the skin. Treating them means you need to stop shaving for about four weeks. This will allow enough time for the hair to grow enough to come out of the skin. Applying an antibiotic ointment will be helpful as well.

 

So you don't get these bumps again, use warm water to soften the skin and hairs before shaving. After soaking in a warm bath or shower for 23 minutes use a gel like those made by Satin Care. This will help you will get a clean and close shave. Apply the shaving gel upward or in the opposite direction of hair growth. You will need to apply a good lotion after shaving. The one we recommend is Olay's Bikini Moisturizing Lotion because it leaves skin looking and feeling beautiful.

 

Pubic hair can be itchy as it grows back.

 

Hope this is helpful,

Your BeingGirl Experts

Most people would cosider this awkward, but since we are all girls, I'm fine. I do shave my pubic hair, simply because it is more comfortable to me. It is more comfortable to wear underwear, and when I swim or dance, I don't get irritation down there.

It's a girls choice to decide if she's ready or not to shave down there.

The answer to this article is completely correct, that's what I've done and it makes shaving so much easier and itch free.

Shaving "down there" is irritating ! like I mean inbetween ur legs...i just cut the hair, I dont know anything else to do cuz im not shaving it...i mean-OUCH! And shaving the top part above the vagina just leaves red dots and as the hair grows back its prickly, and it itches!! Ugh.

Dear Cookies&Cream99: The same thing happened to me! I talked to my older cousin about it, and she said to make sure that I've soaked in the tub for a while and used shave gel. I didn't happen after that! Hope this helps!
