Grooming Pubic hair
It's something to think that as well as combing head hair, shaving or at least trimming face hair, and shaving underarms and legs, people are now grooming their pubic hair.
Whether you're a person completely shaving your pubic hair or simply trimming it, the majority of these good habits apply. Here then, are some good habits for grooming pubic hair to help you along:
BOTH: You shouldn't start grooming your pubic hair when you first get up after sleeping. Body fluids will have made the skin puffy, which makes it harder to get a close shave or an accurate trim. Allow about 20-30 minutes for your skin to become more taut, which will cause the hair shaft to be more exposed.
This sort of leads into this next good habit:
BOTH: You should never even attempt grooming your pubic hair unless you are fully awake and totally straight.
SHAVING: If grooming your pubic hair will involve shaving, and your pubic hair is somewhat long, trim it down to a stubble first.
BOTH: Always thoroughly moisturize your hair and skin before grooming your pubic hair. A long, hot shower and some shampoo will make sure the pubic hair is clean. The hot water and steam from your shower will open the follicles, relax the skin and soften the hairs, which will make shaving or trimming easier. Allow your skin to be wet for five to ten minutes.
TRIMMING: If grooming your pubic hair will involve just trimming, run a large toothed comb through it to make sure it's free of tangles.
SHAVING: If grooming your pubic hair will involve shaving, apply a generous amount of a rich lubricant to further soften your pubic hair, lock in moisture, help keep the hair erect, reduce friction and condition your skin. Allow this to sit on your hair and skin for at least 3 minutes and make sure there's always plenty of lubricant as you're shaving.
BOTH: Whether shaving or trimming, ALWAYS use a clean, new blade in your razor for the best pubic hair grooming results. A dull blade will only pull and tear these hairs.
TRIMMING: If grooming your pubic hair will involve just trimming, only take a little off at a time. Most pubic hair tends to be quite curly, which means these hairs will look shorter because they're snapping back after being trimmed. So be careful. You might not like a "sheared" look and it will take quite a while for this hair to grow back before you can do anything else with it.
Have a large mirror handy so you can check results as you're grooming your pubic hair.
SHAVING: If grooming your pubic hair will involve shaving, gently pull the skin taut with one hand and draw the razor across your skin with the other in long strokes. First with the way the hair grows and then again, against the hair growth. Don't apply too much pressure or shave over any one area more than this second time if you can help it.
When you've finished shaving your pubic hair, thoroughly rinse off any remaining lubricant with warm water. Then, rinse again, only this time with cold water. Doing so will calm agitated follicles as well as tone your skin.
Pat your pubic area dry with a clean, soft towel. Make sure you don't rub.
To further help your skin from becoming inflamed after grooming your pubic hair by shaving, lightly dust your skin with a talc free powder or just regular cornstarch. And wear loose fitting clothing for a while afterward.
TRIMMING: If grooming your pubic hair will involve just trimming, don't think that you can just put your underwear back on, because all those little pieces of hair you've trimmed will start irritating this sensitive skin and driving you c-r-a-z-y. Simply jump back in the shower and wash off these bits of hair.
Now you have all the information you need to start forming good habits when grooming your pubic hair and achieving the best results. All that's left now is for you to start practicing these good habits.
