Any way to avoid this after shaving? It's bin 2 days since I did.
If not familiar, their red, sore and somewhat itchy. I wear a tight belt when i'm working.
>over sized construction pants
Do you push down into the skin when you shave? It makes the hairs get cut beneath the skin and causes then to become ingrown. Make sure your razor is sharp so you don't have to push down.
Chicks don't like a dude that shaved bald down there like a fucking 10 year old. Get a fucking beard trimmer, put it on level one or two and get to work. No razor bumps or burn
To avoid it here's what I do.
1. Rinse blades with a rubbing alcohol before hand. Blood dries on the blades if you reuse and ca uses bacteria to get into fresh cuts
2. After shave can be helpful
3. Shave with the hair not against it.
Better yet don't use a straight razor. The small amount of stubble electric shavers leave isn't even a negative thing.
Even better still just trim it low but not to skin.
Shave in the direction that your hairs are growing in.
If you do the opposite, the razor just catches the entire hair follicle and tries to rip it out awkwardly, that's why it gets inflamed.
You probably used your face razor. You probably get razor bumps on your face too. You're fucking filthy. Keep your skin and your razor clean, you stinky nigger.
>wash area to be shaved, gently exfoliate with soap and fingertips.
>if using a shit-tier cartridge razor (which is a filth magnet full of hair, dead skin and germs), disinfect first with rubbing alcohol
>wet area to be shaved.
>apply shaving cream (or, if you're not a retard, shaving oil)
>shave with the grain
>repeat process, this time shaving against the grain.
>rinse shaved area with cold water
>apply aftershave (non-niggers use a natural astringent like Witch Hazel)
Didn't daddy ever teach you how to shave? Oh sorry, I forgot you're a filthy nigger. You never knew your daddy.
Shave in the shower with the hot water running down. Takes 0 shaving cream. Baby smooth. Been doing it for a decade. Works every time all the time. Maybe get a girls razor? Even the men's disposable work this way but they rust easily and don't last as long and get stuff caught in them easily.
Supermodels and bikini models who Shave and don't wax do it this way too. In the shower.
Apply aloe Vera in the event of bumps or itchy redness. Non fragrance 100% pure aloe Vera or lotion. Fragrance upsets pores.
If it's from sweat you should buy a fungal Creme for jock itch. 97cent kind in a green tube from Walmart or cvs works best tbh.I hope this is helpful.
or get a pair of clippers. I never have that problem anymore
Shaved against the hairs (upwards) though I'ts easier and much Quicker to do it that way, I will take your advices. Also everyone is looking away from the belt effect, which is one of the main causes to the sore spots.
What you meant was "antiperspirant", which contains aluminum compounds that act as a powerful astringent / styptic.
Here's a better idea: get a natural alum block. Leave the shaved area wet after rinsing, wet the alum block, gently rub alum block on the area.
Alum is an antimicrobial and styptic. It'll work. It'll be less harsh than antiperspirants. But in my opinion it's still too harsh. Use Witch Hazel instead.
Witch Hazel is gentler than Alum and is still antimicrobial and is a natural astringent.
every girl I've ever talked to about this says they think guys who shave their pubes are creepy. Some girls like shaved balls, but very few girls think it's sexy for a guy to be hairless down there like a child. I'm guessing you're like 15 and don't have much experience with women yet.
Don't shave your pussy, wax it with sugar wax
>no sharp stubble
>sugar wax is body safe
>washes off with warm water
>gentler to skin than commercial waxes
>dirt fucking cheap
>waxing lasts weeks
Get yourself some isocol, after you wash in the shower, apply liberally. May not stop all, but will greatly reduce redness.
*coming from a completely hairless faggot that works in 35+ degree warehouses all day.
Not the anon you replied to, but I have like four hairs that grow on my sweet spot. They're super thin and blonde and only grow to about 1/2". But they annoy the shit out of me.
I've started tweezing them in the hopes that some day they'll stop growing altogether.
1) trim it low first
2) put a hot/warm towel over area for aprox 5 mins
3) use product called bikini-zone gel
4) shave with brand new razor
5) once finished and dried up, apply a nonscented antiperspirant in the area
6) enjoy a nice smooth shave
This. Based on my experience, most important is clean razor and splash cold water after.
Idk exactly why cold water helps, something about closing the pores after they are opened from the heat so irritants don't get in. If nothing else it at least cools the razor burn and makes it feel better. Also damn refreshing.
I don't generally get razor burn and don't need aftershave though. I shave with a straight razor though so that might have something to do with it. Maybe less to do with the razor and more to do with the shave soap brush being better at cleansing the pores during application.
Idk, can any other straightrazor fags comment? I'm not sure exactly why but it seems to result in a better shave.
Disclaimer - this is general shaving advice, I trim my pubes, not shave them.
Here's what I do.
Mid way through shower. Tons of shaving cream. Barbasol works fine.
3 blade disposable razor
Shave WITH the grain. Across is fine but never against.
Coco butter lotion after shower.
Wear boxers and keep the band above your pube area. Briefs will rub against it and cause irritation. Let it grow out a bit (like 1/4 inch) and shave again. Your skin will become less sensitive. And for fucks sake keep it clean. Oil and dirt are bad and will cause irritation.
Like where the fuck do you come from, and what type of stupid ass "chicks" do you even fuckings talk to. Your 60 y.o mom isn't incountible to ask. Fucking filthy.
Implying I have a gf.
I guess I can say the straight up the fucking oposite, that all the wommen I've spoone to about this, likes it smooth like a babys ass.
Ever eaten a Harry Pussy?
How to shave balls with electtric razor? i ones managed to cut my sack while shaving, wasnt anything big just a tiny tiny cut. how to avoid? and if i use that level of lenght thingy i dont get anything cut. so now i use scissors but its taking 4ever.
please help a fag out..
We weren't talking about pussy. Seriously if you want to shave your pubes and look like a creepy hairless little boy go ahead, But I assure you, most women do not find that sexy. Most find it weird. Maybe if you ever lose ur virginity you will learn something
OP, that happens because of what above posters said, hairs get ingrown, to prevent that you need to keep the pubic area squeaky clean and clean it with something thick so the pores open and hairs grow out and not in
worked for me at least
Can't believe no one has said this before. Before you shave, clean the razor with rubbing alcohol. Almost no razor burn. Once I started doing that, my face acne reduced by like 60%.
I just can't get into hairy poontang. I was fucking around with a hippie chick for a while who didn't shave anything at all and the hairy muff actually bothered me more than the legs or pits. She was a redhead though so the leg hair was fine textured and almost clear. If she'd been Greek or something that would have been a different story.
>Maybe less to do with the razor and more to do with the shave soap brush being better at cleansing the pores during application.
This. Using the brush to apply the soap does a superior job of cleaning the skin.
I always lather up with soap and a brush first just to clean my skin and hair, then rinse it off and apply shave oil instead. Then I shave with a straight razor. Then I rinse with cold water and apply witch hazel.
I never have razor burn or razor rash, even if I make three passes with the straight razor and go against the grain.
Regarding the straight razor: the biggest advantage to a straight razor is that it's easy to keep clean and lasts a lifetime if well-maintained. I'd never use one on my balls.
I do use a cheap cartridge razor on my balls. I keep the razor dry when not in use, I rinse it with rubbing alcohol before, during, and after use. I never have razor burn or bumps on my balls. Ever.
Cant your stupid ass little brain prosess words?
Maybe you COULDNT imagine how eating a Harry Pussy would feel like. Leta make it simpler for you. Something you actually could set your mind to.
Sucking on a hairy ass cock? Filthy pubes. All in your mouth. Mmm amarite?
Veet fast acting gel cream.
I use this on a regular basis especially if my hair is really long. Doesn't burn like I've heard Nair does. Just don't do it if you recently shave or have been sweaty. If you have open pores it will hurt.
I don't shave OP, but I do get ingrown hairs around my waist line for the same exact reason. Since using these two things I've stopped getting them.
Whether or not you think they're stupid or look retarded it helps. The pants aren't rubbing against your skin as they would with a belt. They chafe your shoulders for a couple days but you get used to them.
This shit is awesome. You don't have to just put it on your nuts. I put it anywhere there might be friction throughout the day. Arm pits, ass, thighs, waist line. Its a lotion that drys into a talc powder, but doesn't leave much of a residue. When I come home and take a shower after work, first thing I do is put some of this shit on.
Buy it. I promise you'll love it.
If the only barrier keeping you from man to creepy little boy is your public hair then you need to take some growth hormone and hit the fucking gym. Young women like muscular and hairless.
Same, using straight razor and soaping this way I can go against the grain just fine.
But like I said, I don't use this downstairs. I just use a trimmer for that. Tbh shaving your pubic area is probably easier than shaving around your facial features and I probably have the manual dexterity to do so, but just on principle I do not want to put a 5 inch razorblade so close to my junk.
Also unrelated general commentary on whether it's "unmanly" or looks bad to shave your pubes bald - I think it really depends on if you're a bodyhairfag or not. If I shaved completely down there it would just look weird because I have dark body/leg hair and it would look like a patch was missing if my happy trail just stopped.
I'm the same, so I don't shave all of my pubes. I trim. The only exception is my balls. I shave my sack. It doesn't look out of place at all because the rest of the pubes are still there.
Plus a shorn scrot means my wife won't be able to leave me alone. And blowjobs are fun.
>mfw almost every girl I've ever been with has told me that completely hairless dicks look weird
I'd say most women don't want to see a huge unkempt bush in your pants. You're probably the same guy who goes on /b/ and says you vomit at the sight of a hairy pussy and turn your nose up at it but refuse to keep your own shit looking decent.
given by the job you did im gonna take a stab in the dark and say you don't shave often. Your skin gets used to it over time but disinfecting everything helps. Scrub your skin, soak your blades in alcohol, and maybe even dab some alcohol on the area afterwards if you arent a baby.
1st and foremost get good soap to the shaving purpose.Everyday soap u use to clean ur hands is so bad that u should even use it to cleaning the hands. Remember to avoid all luquid soaps in the 1st place. No matter the company it comes from liquid soap is piece of shit.
