I was wondering if any other women have shaved their pubic area completely and then experienced redness and irritation afterwards? I shaved mine and then decided it was a bad idea and am now trying to grow it back but I am finding it to be very irritating. I have tried putting hair conditioner down there to soften the coarse hairs that are coming back in. Has anyone else experienced this? I used a Mach 3 brand new razor. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
Shaving down there can be very irritating. Conditioner is a good idea and you might try baby powder also after showering/bathing. When it grows out enough and the irritation is gone, have it waxed. That's really the best way.
Thank you for your response. Is it a bad idea to put lotion in that region? I would like to but am afraid I will get pimples down there if I do. I will give the baby powder idea a try. I bought some Aloe Vera gel but then was worried to use it down there cause I read on the package that it is natural product and I don't know if it was sterilized and made in a facility like other main stream products are made.
Yes, I've been waxed. Used to do it regularly when I went to the pool and beach a lot. It's not "fun" to do but it just stings for a few seconds....I suggest trimming well before getting it done so there isn't so much hair to remove...
The best advice I got came from an exotic dancer. They are required to be shaved but cannot perform if there is irritation or bumps on their vaginal area. Use the clear rolling deodarant across the freshly shaved area. DO NOT USE STICK OR THE WHITE KIND. I keep mine shaved and that keeps me from getting those horrible red bumps
