Pubic Hair Removal – Tips And Advise

By Al Falaq Arsendatama

Though there are many pubic hair removal methods, the best methods are waxing and shaving. Permanent ways such as pubic hair removal by laser treatment is unadvisable because there is a lot of unknown ground about the side effects of laser hair removal. In any case the laser treatment will definitely cause some very adverse and long lasting skin irritations and eruptions in this very sensitive area of the body due to the fact that it is always covered and not toughened by the elements and also the bony nature of the area.
Some Precautions Before Beginning The Hair Removal Process
It is advisable to avoid taking a shower or wetting the hair before waxing the

area. Hair becomes soft when wet and fails to stick to the wax and the procedure will be less effective and the wet hair will slip causing a great deal of discomfort and pain that can be avoided by waxing the hair when it is dry. Tough and thick hair is far easier to pull out than thin and weak hair that is more likely to break in the process rendering the procedure ineffective and painful. Other points to note are:
• One must always test a small area of the skin to ensure the skin is not allergic to the wax being used. Belgian wax is the best wax for pubic hair removal.
• Be sure to test a small area of skin first to make sure there is no acute sensitivity or allergic reaction to pubic hair removal using waxing.
• Waxing methods for pubic hair removal should be resorted to only when the hair is 1/8th of an inch long. It is advisable to wait till the hair reaches this length before waxing.
• Clean the skin with disinfectants thoroughly and dry it completely to remove any lotions or oils, which may prevent the wax from sticking to the hair.
• Take care to heat the wax enough and not over heat it and burn the skin in the process. Test the temperature of the wax on your skin before applying it over a large area.
• The consistency of the wax should be soft and not runny like honey.
• Use a pain reducing gel that can be obtained from a pharmacist. Apply the solution 30 to 60 minutes before waxing.
• Always apply a thin layer of wax in the direction of the growth and peel back with a rapid movement as close to the skin as possible. Never pull up or out.
If you do not want to wax, you can shave in the direction of the growth after cleaning the area as described above. Never shave against the growth and never use a switchblade. Only a safety razor made for the purpose.
