Useful Tips on Shaving Pubic Hair With Step By Step Guide for Women

Posted in: , ,

Removing pubic hair seems like an ordeal to most women as they often end up getting nicks and painful ingrown hair. A smooth and well-shaven pubic area provides a feeling of freedom to women and helps them enjoy more intimacy with their partner.

However, shaving pubic hair is tougher than shaving legs or underarms owing to the sensitivity of the pubic region. Women need to shave their pubic hair patiently and carefully to avoid getting nicks and ingrown hair.

Given below is a step-by-step guide that will ensure your shaving process is easy and nick-free.

Step 1: Pick the right shaving cream 

Pubic region is one of the most sensitive parts of the body hence you should be very careful while choosing the shaving cream. Soaps do not form sufficient lather and foams or creams used by men for shaving may not provide sufficient lubrication and protection for your sensitive private parts. Use shaving creams or gels that contain moisturising agents such as aloe vera or vitamin E.

Step 2: Choose a proper razor 

It is extremely important to choose an appropriate razor for shaving pubic hair. A cheap disposable razor with a single blade is likely to cause you cuts or nicks on your most sensitive parts and may hurt you immensely. It is recommended that you use multi-bladed razor with a moisturizing strip on its head to give you a smooth, close shave.

Step 3: Trim long hair 

To make shaving easier, a good idea would be to trim down pubic hair longer than a quarter of an inch with scissors. Cutting it as short as possible means you will have to deal with less hair while shaving. This will make the shaving process less painful and less messy.

Step 4: Take a warm shower or bath

Always remove pubic hair after a warm shower or after soaking yourself in a hot tub for a few minutes. This will help to open the pores of the skin and soften hair follicles, making it easy for you to remove hairs from the root. Removing pubic hair following a bath also prevents the growth of ingrown hair, a problem women frequently encounter when shaving pubic hair.

Step 5: Exfoliate the skin 

Experts also recommend exfoliating to remove dead skin cell to facilitate a closer shave. Use a mild exfoliate or a body wash with a washcloth or loofah sponge on your pubic area.

Step 6: Use a shaving oil 

For extra smooth shaving experience, you may apply some shaving oil. This will help razor glide easily over your skin and prevent razor burn, general irritation and ingrown hairs.

Step 7: Apply shaving cream or gel 

Apply a generous amount of shaving cream or gel on a damp but not wet skin. You may also use a shaving brush to work up a good lather to ensure a smooth shave.

Step 8: Ready to shave 

Using a fresh blade, first move the shaver in the same direction of hair growth and then in opposite direction. Use one hand to pull your skin taut and the other to glide the razor.

Don’t go over the same area too many times to avoid getting a cut. Remember to rinse the blade after every couple of strokes. A clogged razor will not work well. After shaving, rinse pubic area and pat dry with towel. Use cool water to rinse, as it will help to close the pores and follicles, reducing the chance of irritation.

Step 9: Moisturise 

Moisturise the freshly shaven pubic area using baby oil, vitamin E or aloe vera. This will help to soothe your skin after the shave and reduce the chance of pimples or razor burn. It is best to avoid moisturizers that contain fragrances and colours, as they may cause irritation.

Some useful tips on shaving pubic hair 

• Some women suffer from increased genital sensitivity during menstruation. They must avoid shaving during this period

• You may consider using a small mirror to see well if you are taking off most of your pubic hair
• Moisturise and powder the area daily to avoid irritation

• Try to wear cotton underwear and to stay away from tight fitting pants. The lack of air circulation and friction of tight cloths may lead to in-grown hairs

    Shaving pubic hair is tedious and difficult. Why not wax or laser; they last longer. Barring those, then nair or veet hair removal cream will do the trick

  2. Thanks for sharing this tips, I choose waxing over shaving , it works perfectly for me , just my two cents. Thanks

  3. I think we need to question why this is even necessary. Maintenance, sure, but why do we have to be expected to complete total eradication? Why has it got to the point that nice girls are being rejected for remaining natural, and must choose either to submit to fashion or remain alone?



  5. After reading this post only one words comes out from my mouth that is "WoW". This post has helps me to acquire some new knowledge. So thanks for sharing your valuable ideas with us.
