Tips for Healthy, Well-Groomed Hair Down There

Whether you keep it all, trim it up or go buff, taking care of your pubic hair is a healthy habit to have.

If you’re wondering how to shave pubic hair and have questions, you’re not alone. There is definitely less info out there for shaving down there than there is about shaving other body hair.

When shaving your pubic hair, you’re dealing with a sensitive area, so you’ll want to keep a few tips in mind.

In the interest of making sure you’re shaving safely and effectively, here’s a step-by-step guide for how to shave pubic hair from start to finish.

Trim Your Pubic Hair

Shaving your pubic area is easier when you have already trimmed off any excess hair. Grab a pair of scissors or a hair trimmer and cut your pubic hair so it’s only a few centimeters long. Hairy Fact: On average, pubic hair ranges between 0.5 to 1.5 inches in length.

Exfoliate the Skin

Gently exfoliate your skin before shaving. This will remove any dead skin and allow you to shave the hair as near to the root as possible.

Apply Shaving Cream

Apply a generous amount of shaving cream to the areas you want to shave. Not only does shave cream provide a protective barrier against the razor, it also helps condition hair so regrowth does not cause red bumps or ingrown hairs.

Shave in the Direction of Hair Growth

Pull the skin taut and shave in the direction of your hair growth to avoid irritating the hair follicle. This is especially important so you can also avoid tiny cuts and micro tears from the razor that can easily get infected and inflamed. Hairy Fact: Pubic hair plays an important role in sexual health. It prevents against friction burns and chafing and is the main reason pubic hair is coarser and thicker than the hair on the rest of our bodies.
