How to shave pubic hair
Pubic hair styles –TIPS
- Keep all products on the outside of your body only. And avoid shaving during your period, as skin is more sensitive.
- If you are taking off most of your hair, a small mirror can help you see better.
- Shaving while taking a shower, rather than a bath can make things easier because you can prop up legs on side of stall.
- If you’re daring, you can create your pubic hair design at home.
- Shaving only takes hair even with the skin, waxing will keep hair away weeks at a time.
- Some people experience moderate to intense itching the first couple of days after shaving as the pubic hair grows back. Try your first shave on a weekend.
How It Works: Using a razor, a person removes the tip of the hair shaft that has grown out through the skin. Some razors are completely disposable, some have a disposable blade, and some are electric. Women often shave their underarms, legs, and bikini areas.How Long It Lasts: 1 to 3 daysPros: Shaving is fairly inexpensive, and you can do it yourself. All you need is some warm water, a razor, and if you choose, shaving gel or cream.Cons: Razor burn, bumps, nicks, cuts, and ingrown hairs are side effects of shaving. Ingrown hairs can happen with close, frequent shaving. When the hair begins to grow, it grows within the surrounding tissue rather than growing out of the follicle. The hair curls around and starts growing into the skin, irritating it
How Long It Lasts: 3 to 8 weeks
Pros:Plucking is inexpensive (all you need are tweezers). But it can be time- consuming because you can only remove one hair at a time.
Cons: Plucking can be painful. If the hair breaks off below the skin, a person may get an ingrown hair. After plucking, you may notice temporary red bumps because the hair follicle is swollen and irritated.
Tips: Make sure you sterilize your tweezers or other plucking devices with rubbing alcohol before and after (to avoid infection).
How Long They Last: Several days to 2 weeks
Pros: Depilatories work quickly, are readily available at drugstores and grocery stores. They’re best on the leg, underarm, and bikini areas; special formulations may be used on the face and chin.
Cons: Applying depilatories can be messy some people dislike the odor. If you have sensitive skin, you might have an allergic reaction to the chemicals in the depilatory (could be rash or inflammation).
Tips: Read product directions carefully and be sure to apply the product only for the recommended amount of time for best results. Before using a depilatory on pubic hair, read product labels to find one that says it’s safe to use on the “bikini” area or genitals.
How Long It Lasts: 3 to 6 weeks
Pros: Waxing leaves the area smooth and is long lasting. Waxing kits are readily available in drugstores and grocery stores. Hair re-growth looks lighter and less noticeable than it is after other methods of hair removal, such as shaving.
Cons: Many people say the biggest drawback to waxing is the discomfort: Because the treatment works by pulling hair out at the roots, it can sting a bit as the hair comes off — luckily that part is fast. People may notice temporary redness, inflammation, and bumps after waxing. Professional waxing is more expensive than other hair removal methods. Teens who use acne medications such as tretinoin and isotretinoin may want to skip waxing because those medicines make the skin more sensitive. People with moles or skin irritation from sunburn should also avoid waxing.
Tips: For waxing to work, hair should be at least ¼ inch (about 6 millimeters) long. So skip shaving for a few weeks before waxing. Waxing works well on the legs, bikini area, and eyebrows.
How Long It Lasts: Intended to be permanent, but some people have re-growth of hair
Pros: Some people have permanent hair removal.
Cons: Electrolysis takes big bucks and lots of time, so it’s usually only used on smaller areas such as the upper lip, eyebrows, and underarms. Many people describe the process as painful and dry skin, scabs, scarring, and inflammation may result after treatment. Infection may be a risk if the needles and other instruments aren’t properly sterilized.
Tips: Talk to your doctor if you’re interested in this method.
Laser Hair Removal
How Long It Lasts: Intended to be permanent, but people often need to return every 6 months to a year for maintenance.
Pros: This type of hair removal is long lasting and large areas of skin can be treated at the same time.
Cons: A treatment session could be expensive. Side effects of the treatment may include inflammation and redness.
Tips: Using cold packs may help diminish any inflammation after treatment. Avoiding the sun before a treatment may make results more effective.
facial hair growth in women. The cream is applied twice a day
until the hair becomes softer and lighter. Side effects may include skin irritation and acne. Antiandrogen medications (Diane 35, Dianette, Androcur, cyproteron-acetate) are another method that doctors prescribe to reduce the appearance of unwanted hair. These medications can reduce hair growth by blocking androgen production. Doctors often prescribe oral contraceptives in conjunction with these medications to enhance their effect, avoid pregnancy (since antiandrogens can be harmful to a developing fetus) and help regularize the menstrual cycle in girls who need it. Deciding to remove body hair is a personal choice. Getting rid of body hair doesn’t make a person healthier, and you shouldn’t feel pressured to do so if you don’t want to. Some cultures view body hair as beautiful and natural, so do what feels right to you!
