Here are my techniques and tips to shave your pubic hair effectively and stress-free, ready to start guys ?
Shaving pubic hair is rather common practice for men. Whether its for looks or for better hygiene, the goal is to know how to properly shave while avoiding any unexpected frustration.
The pubic region is a sensitive and intimate region and maintaining it well comes easier in time if you know a the right approach.
Before you start, I recommend testing a small area to see if there’s a reaction or even pimples that appear.
First off, just like with a Brazilian wax, you want to trim your pubic hair to make it easier to work with. However, unlike waxing where you need to leave a certain amount of length for the wax to grip, when trimming for a shave you’ll want to cut as close you comfortably can without pinching or nicking your skin. This will make it easier to see what you’re doing, and the shorter the hair, the less you clog the razor. You can use small scissors for this, or an electric trimmer for a more even, closer pre-shave trim. A regular hair trimmer is too big & awkward to maneuver, but a beard trimmer or bikini-line trimmer can save you a lot of time and hassle.

Now that your pubic hair has been trimmed down to a quarter inch or less, prep your skin for shaving. Heat and steam help open your pores and soften your hair, so I recommend shaving during or immediately after a shower if at all possible. If not, shaving after a warm bath is also a good option, or you can soak a washcloth in warm water and cover your pubic hair with it for a few minutes before you start shaving. Just make sure your skin is well-hydrated before you begin.
Like I said earlier, if you haven’t shaved your pubic hair before, be careful and go slow. It can be a little tricky to get every bit of hair, especially if you are shaving it all off. If you miss a spot, just apply some more shaving cream and give it another go. You may well notice a few stray pubic hairs a day or two after you shave, in which case you can do a quick touch up to get rid of the stragglers.

How can you properly shave your own pubic hair ?
Being in the habit of taking care of their facial hair, men often decide to shave themselves. However, certain techniques that we frequently use while shaving our facial hair often prove unfit for our pubic hair.
This is notably the case with shaving against the grain – a technique that involves shaving in the opposite direction that the hair is growing – ripping the hair out more than cutting the hair off. The result is redness or ingrown hairs – cumbersome, painful, and hard to get rid of.

It’s best to trim your pubic hair before shaving. Apply a thin layer of shaving cream in the natural direction of your hair. Don’t shave the same spot multiple times. It’s better to take it slowly and precisely than to risk cutting yourself – something that happens frequently when you shave your face.
Tilting your penis to the opposite side of the area you’re shaving and carefully shaving one area after the other is an important technique to prevent your razor from slipping and causing any accidents.
Which razor is best for shaving the pubic region ?
It’s best to invest in quality and find a razor with multiple blades – these are more precise and more efficient than using a single-blade razor. It’s also wise to use an electric shaver to trim your hair before shaving them with a razor. Using an electric shaver allows you to adjust the position to make shaving dense areas much more manageable.
Try to avoid using disposable razors that only have one blade – they wear out quickly and are not especially effective.
