Shaving pubic hair is a sexy trend for a growing number of men and women, but it does require some finesse to do it well. Whether you’re male or female, the process is pretty much the same- lose the hair and avoid the irritation.
Of all parts of the body, the groin is one of the most sensitive and the hair that grows there is a problem. Do you know how to eliminate it correctly?
The elimination of pubic hair is very common. It’s either practiced for bathing suits, or for many, it’s done for the benefit of sexual relations.
5 Natural Ways to Get Rid of Ingrown Hairs
1.Hair removal with wax
This is the most effective traditional method to remove hair, especially with hot wax, since it adheres well to the hair. Of course, it’s a bit painful the first time.
2. Hair removal with creams
This method is excellent because it’s invisible, painless, and there are no contraindications.
However, it is important to conduct a test in the area to eliminate the possibility of being allergic.
3. Laser hair removal
This is an effective but costly method. You need eight sessions to definitively eliminate hair, giving touch-ups.
At the same time, it’s important to do research before starting and you should go to a specialist.
There are different types of laser treatment. Therefore, it’s a good idea to investigate which is best for you.
4. Brazilian method
For those who want to go a step farther, above the bikini line.
Advantages: with the option for hair removal, we now don’t have to worry about hair, especially in the summer. It’s advisable, at least in the beginning, to choose a salon that we feel confidant in.
5. Shaving groin
Shaving to eliminate hair is a fast and comfortable method.
- Pre-trim your pubic hair. Razors are designed to shave fairly short hair and will quickly clog and become dull if applied to long hair. To trim it, gently pull the hair up, away from the body you and then cut it back with small, sharp scissors, clippers, preferably, some equipped with safety guards. Alternatively, use an electric scissor-action trimmer without rotating heads.
- Soften your hair and hair follicles by taking a hot shower or bath. This will make the coarse pubic hair a lot easier to shave off. It may seem like a superfluous step, but it’ll make the somewhat lengthy process much more manageable.
Ain’t nobody got time for that, you say? Then simply cover the area with a warm, thoroughly wet washcloth for five minutes or so to get the same effect.
- Foam up to avoid irritation. Use unscented shaving foam, cream, or gel to lather your pubic hair. It is recommended that you use shaving foam or cream that is designed for shaving pubic hair rather than facial hair. Apples and oranges, folks. And just like your mother should’ve told you, never shave your pubic hair without lubrication.
- Grab your razor. It’s new, right? The newer it is, the better it’ll work. Hopefully, it has lots of blades and something fancy and gel-like on the sides to lessen your lubrication needs. Who cares if it’s pink or blue? If it’s sharp with three or more blades, it’ll be not only easier for you, but safer on your skin.
- Stretch your skin tight. If it’s loose, you’ll end up cutting yourself. Razors can only do their job well on nearly flat surfaces. With your free hand, stretch your skin tight and hold it firmly, giving you a clear target.
- Shave slowly and gently. There are two things to keep in mind here: shaving with the grain will prevent irritation and ingrown hairs and shaving against the grain will result in a closer shave. Knowing these two things, take into account your situation. If you have mega-super-ultra sensitive skin, you may want to stick to shaving with the grain, even if it takes you twice as long to get the results you want.
As you transition to getting a closer shave, try working across the grain of the hair; if the hair is growing downwards, for example, shave to the left or right. Get used to feeling the hair growth rather than trying to see it.— Not relying on your eyes makes the whole process much faster.
Choose the correct method for your type of hair and for what you would like to achieve. Choose the type of hair removal that is best for you.
The elimination of pubic hair can provoke irritation and inflammation in the hair follicles, causing tiny open sores that are almost microscopic.
These irritations, in a warm and humid environment, can be an area that cultivates bacteria and other microorganisms. As with eliminating hair in any part of the body, when removing pubic hair, it’s important to respect and take care of your body.
