Hair “down there” is as natural as eyebrows or hair anywhere else on your body. And like the hair growing on the rest of your body there are plenty of good reasons to cut, trim, or shave it off. In fact, there is only one reason why you shouldn’t.

While shaving your eyebrows is slightly less controversial (and infinitely more public) than the hair between your legs is another issue and comes with another set of worries and concerns. So, what benefits, if any, are there to shaving the hair “down there”.
Benefits of Shaving Female Pubic Area
Most advocates of pubic hair removal site a clean feeling as the primary reason. Let’s face it, there are thousands of oil and sweat glands in and around your pubic area. That combined with an active lifestyle and make thing a bit humid in your pubic region. The trapped moisture can contribute to unpleasant odors, discomfort, and occasionally the growth of bacteria. To be sure, shaving your pubes is not the only way to combat these little inconveniences. Washing with a mild, scent free soap will also do the trick.
The second most commonly cited reason to shave your bikini line is in the name itself. Bikinis. Many women have pubic hair growing outside of the very narrow strip of skin covered by most bathing suits. Dancers may also find this a reason for concern as leotards and other costumes can be quite revealing. Ask any cheerleader, lifeguard, or gymnast and they will tell you that wayward pubic hair is embarrassing. Whether they choose to go bare or not, shaving the hair back is necessary.
The third most commonly cited reason for shaving a woman’s pubic hair is to feel sexy. Whether your partner prefers to see a little skin, or you like the allure of a landing strip, shaving your pubes, like shaping your eyebrows can be aesthetically pleasing. Every woman should like what she sees when she stands in front of the mirror. While the explosion of free online porn has put added pressure on women to buzz the fuzz, what matters most is how you feel about the effects.
How to Properly Shave Your Pubic Area Female
- Trim the hairs with scissors that are not dull. Try to get as close as possible. The longer the hair, the more pull there will be during shaving, which will cause irritation to the skin. It is best to do this while sitting on the toilet so that the hairs go into the toilet bowl for less of a clean-up hassle at the end.
- After trimming, take an electric razor and do a sweep of the hairs that may have gotten away from the scissors. Remember to stretch the skin tight, and to take this step slow. Again, any long hairs left behind may cause the razor to pull and irritate the skin. It is best to shave in the direction that the hair grows to avoid ingrown hairs.
- Bathe and scrub. When shaving, the dead skin is going to come up with the hairs, and to get rid of this dead skin so that it doesn’t take up razor space, exfoliation is key. This step is also important because it will raise the hairs and soften them, thus making them easier to deal with.
If bathing is too much work at this time, a warm wet cloth will do as long as it is left on the pubic region for five minutes, and the area is scrubbed to help with exfoliation.
- Now it is time to shave with a razor. Be sure to use a new razor with a moisturizing strip. Dryness will only cause irritation, and that isn’t pleasant. The shaving cream that should be used should be unscented and tested on a different part of the body before use. An allergic reaction may occur if using something brand new for this special occasion. It is highly recommended to use a shaving cream with aloe to help soothe the skin.
Remember to pull the skin tight and shave in the direction the hair grows!
- Rinse and soothe the skin. Once satisfied with the razor, go ahead and hop out of the shower after rinsing off and exfoliating the pubic area. Once out of the shower and dried off, use some baby oil or aloe Vera lotion to calm the skin and soften it. This will help prevent redness and irritation.
- This step is not required, but if wanting to make sure all of that time shaving meant something, it is a good idea to take some tweezers and do a once over for any hairs that may have escaped the close shave.
How to Shave Pubic Area Female First Time?
SO how do you get started?
Once you have decided to take the plunge and shave your pubic hair, there is a right way and a wrong way to do it. The procedure is pretty simple, it’s just like shaving your legs only higher. There are a few tips for first timers that I would like to point out.
- Make sure your blade is new, sharp, and clean.
- Wash your hands and your pubic area. It might be easiest to shave in the shower. This ialso helps to soften the hair for easier removal.
- Trim the hair with scissors. This is especially important if this is your very first time shaving your pubic hair. The hair will be long and thick which can make your shave uneven, so cut it down with scissors.
- Lather up. I would recommend using a shaving gel instead of soap and water. Shaving gel helps to moisturize and protect the skin and prepare it for your shave. This will help reduce or prevent razor burn and ingrown hairs.
- Shave with long and even strokes going with the direction of the growth. Going against the grain will only increase your irritation.
- Exfoliate the area to clear away any dead skin your razor dug up. Then pat dry.
How to Shave Pubic Area Female Without Itching?
You may notice after shaving that you have a lot of itching in the region. Since scratching your crotch in public is always a bad idea there are several things you can do to help avoid or lessen itching.
- Moisturize. Yes, even down there. Aloe vera, baby oil, or any kind of unscented, natural moisturizer will do. Avoid dyes and harsh chemicals. The skin in your pubic region is very sensitive. As a rule of thumb, if you wouldn’t put it on a baby’s bottom, don’t use it.
2.Apply a light dusting of baby powder. Be careful not to apply too many things to the area. Let the skin breathe. Once again, use the baby bottom method. If it’s too much for a baby’s behind then it’s too much for you.
- Use shaving gel or conditioner when shaving. Often itching is caused by irritation. The added moisture not only helps reduce irritation but pre-treats the skin to kill itch before it starts.
- When all else fails, use a combination of hydro cortisone cream and a face wash with salicylic acid to keep your pores clear.
What is the best razor for female pubic hair?
The final concern is usually the primary issue. The razor. Electric or manual? One blade or two? Moisturizing strip or cheap disposable?
For those who are looking for a great electric razor the Remington WPG4020C Body and Bikini Grooming Kit is an excellent pick. The Tezam Rechargeable Electric Hair Removal Dry&Wet Shaver is another device worth purchasing for a superior shave. The Venus and Olay manual razor by Gillette is great for those who are intimidated by the idea of putting anything mechanical near their genitalia. The Dorco Shai Soft Touch is another great buy, but a little harder to find than the Venus. Its SIX angular blades and replaceable cartridges make for a smooth shave every time.
The truth is that there is no such thing as the perfect razor. While one product of innovation may work well for some, it may be a nightmare for others. In the beginning, at least, there will be some trial and error as you find the style and system that works best for you. There are some principles to keep in mind when choosing a razor though?
- The more blades on the razor, the closer and smoother the shave.
2.Blades that move with you are better than the stiff stationary ones. So if you have the option, choose the on with the swivel head.
- Lubricating strips are your friend. Avoid bumps and nicks (yes, nicks along your vulva and inner thigh is as painful as it sounds) by using shaving gel and a razor with a lubricating strip.
- Electric shavers are generally preferable to manual razors, if you know what you’re are doing. Choose one with attachments for your bikini area, preferably with multiple speeds, and works well as a wet and dry razor.
And voila! A smooth pubic region has been created! This is how to properly shave your pubic area female. Now that you know everything you need to know, go tackle the razor aisle and fearlessly conquer your pubic hair
