How To Shave Pubic Hairs
You won't be much of a manscaper if you don't learn how to shave pubic hairs. Shaving pubic hair is not at all like shaving your face. Since pubic hair tends to be much more curly than other body hair, if you shave too close, you'll get a whole crop of ingrown pubic hair when the hair starts to grow back which can be painful, and, well, not very pretty to look at. There are a few tips that you should know as you learn how to shave public hairs.
To shave pubic hairs, you will need:
- An electric razor
- A safety razor
- Shaving cream
- Anti-bump shaving solution
- A warm shower
- Take a warm shower or bath before shaving your pubic hairs. The warmth of the water will soften the skin and hair and make shaving a more pleasant experience.
- If you've never shaved your pubic hairs before, your first step is to trim down your hair with the scissors. Using blunt tip scissors will give you a better sense of safety, but you can use any scissors you are comfortable with. Trim as close to your skin as you can by holding the hair in one hand and pulling slightly away from your body. Don't attempt to use scissors after a few cocktails.
- Next, grab a fully charged electric razor and set it on the lowest setting. Shave your pubic hairs with the electric razor in the direction of hair growth, which should be down from your body. If you go against the hair growth, you stand the risk of getting more ingrown pubic hairs.
- If you want a closer shave, take the next step and lather up the area with a shaving cream rich in lanolin and grab your safety razor. Lanolin enhanced shaving creams will moisturize the area and help prevent ingrown pubic hairs. If you have a shaving cream warmer use it as warming the area will soften the hairs. Using your safety razor, shave down in the direction of hair growth. A safety razor will give you a very smooth finish but, beware, you can't avoid ingrown hairs when shaving this close so decide if it's worth the risk. Use short strokes and don't press down against the skin. Instead, let the razor glide down your skin.
- Your only chance of avoiding ingrown hairs in a few days is to apply a shaving anti-bump gel or cream. Get these at any drug store. The ones that work for razor bumps on your face and neck will work on the pubic hair too. Apply twice a day to the pubic area.
