Overview of genital hair removal with genital hair removers, genital waxing, laser genital hair removal and genital hair removal depilatory creams.
Genital hair removal for men includes the removal of hair from the penis and scrotum. For women, this refers to the removal of hair from the labia minora, clitoral hood and labia majora. The process of removing genital hair requires delicate care because the genital area has an uneven surface and thinner skin. Hence, some of the usual hair removal methods you use on your pubic region may not be very applicable for removing genital hair.
Laser Genital Hair Removal
This is probably the best permanent genital hair removal method out there but it can be very costly. It can take between 4 to 8 laser hair removal sessions, each of which will cost $150 or more. Furthermore, you will have to be willing to "bare all" in front of a stranger for quite some time.
Waxing the genitals for women should not be a problem as waxing works relatively fine on the female genitalia. Men have it the hard way with waxing because most waxing professionals are unwilling to wax scrotums. The problem with the scrotum is that the skin there is too loose. During the pulling off of the wax, the skin on the scrotum tends to stretch to an excessive degree, which creates a lot of pain. Hair on the scrotum is usually coarser, which makes it even harder to remove with waxing.
To further complicate things for men, most waxing professionals are women. While some men certainly do not mind a woman handling their private parts, others may not like the idea of having a man doing the job and some men do not want anyone to touch them. If you prefer to wax your genitals yourself, you could purchase a home waxing kit. The main advantage of waxing is it removes the hair from the root, which lasts from 3 to 8 weeks before growing back. The hair growth process can be slowed down with special hair inhibitors to extend the effectiveness of waxing. The pain factor is what stops most people from waxing but if you think you can handle it, then go for it!
Genital Hair Removers
If you prefer to remove genital hair by shaving, the best solution is an electric pubic shaver, which will rule out the risk of cutting yourself and the other side effects associated with shaving with a razor. These pubic shavers usually look like little men's beard shavers with a rotary foil at the top. You will be required to trim the hair you want to shave till it is very short in length to enable these pubic shavers to do their job. Due to the fact that shaving does not remove hair from the root, you may experience ingrown hairs when they start to grow out if you do not apply special after-shave sprays to prevent the new hair from growing sideways. Additionally, shaving requires a lot of maintenance because hair grows back in just a couple of days.
Do Genital Hair Removal Depilatory Creams Exist?
Even though there are hair removal creams for the face, pubic region and legs, there aren't any hair removal creams (as far as I know) that claim to be mild enough for the genitalia.
How To Remove Genital Hair Without Getting Hurt?
When it comes to removing genital hair, it is essential that your chosen method is both gentle and safe enough for the delicate skin of your genitals. The most common way of removing hair on the genitals is by shaving with the current razors you have because it is easy, fast and cost effective. However, the use of normal razors may lead to nicks and bumps on the genitals causing pain, infections and itchiness. Razor blades and depilatory creams that were not designed for contact with the genitals are inappropriate for genital hair removal. If you are willing to fork out a bit more cash, you might want to consider getting safer alternatives like waxing, plucking with tweezers, laser genital hair removal and pubic shavers.
I tried to cover the various ways of removing genital hair as precisely and truthfully as I could. As you can see, there is no perfect solution to remove genital hair. You will need to thoughtfully select which method suits you best based on your budget, personal preferences and time constraints.
Natalie personally uses and recommends the Body Bare pubic shaver for your intimate shaving needs. If you're open to home waxing, you could try the popular GiGi waxing kits to wax your genitals in the comfort of your own home. For more tips on pubic hair removal, please visit HairRemovalHaven.com.
