shaving

My wife has a ladies shaver blade. But after shaving with new blade still has stubble in pubic area. What is the solution because my experience is that a blade makes for really smooth skin. She does correct direction and does blade strokes with hair in downward in this case, but I think she’s doing something wrong as her pubic area is full of stuble right away.

    I recommend using a good exfoliating scrub before AND after shaving. I’ve also found that using a men’s razor gives a closer shave and smoother skin. Pulling the skin as taut as possible will also give a close shave. The woman who does my waxing has always told me to do a dry brush exfoliation or use an all natural exfoliating scrub. I use a dry brush and an apricot scrub. Applying coconut oil after shaving or waxing can help with razor burn, ingrown hairs, and it also softens the hair that grows back. It can’t hurt to try!

    Sounds a bit familiar. My wife has snatched my razor a few times, it gives her a smoother shave.

      For us, we use a trimmer with the shortest guard installed, it leaves just a little hair that is just long enough it doesn’t feel like stubble.

        Same as on your face, a completely smooth finish is only going to be achieved by 2 or 3 passes, possibly with the last one against the grain. However, the skin in that area is very sensitive so I wouldn’t recommend shaving against the grain.

        Hair removal cream may be a better solution, or follow Ron’s advice and leave the hair slightly longer.

          I stopped shaving there as i tried many times and even gone over the same area at least 10 times and it ALWAYS felt stubbly, husband hated it. The hair shaft is much thicker there and either waxing or sugaring is pretty much the only way to guarantee smoothness plus its a pain in the butt to maintain and on women, you have to be really careful because of infection and throwing PH off.

            A matter of preferences. But on our side, we don’t like to find hair in our food :).

            To have an idea about the difference: some women enjoy kissing their men when they are clean shaved, because of the softness and smoothness.

            In my case is the same, I don’t like picky things in contact with my lips and tongue, it feel soooo good and much better when my lady is clean shaven down there. 🙂

            yeah…I ask her when she’s going to shave the area, but if I do that too often I’m a sex fiend ya know?…I then started to notice and anticipate the shaving event, but with kids around, her fatigue from family I often miss the opportunity AND noticed that after a shave of the area it was a bit rough thus my question.

              I think it’s a matter of hair texture or coarseness. It could be changing brands of shaving cream used. I use soap in between but find shaving cream to give the best smoothness. How about the number of blades in the razor? How often is she shaving? Every person is different and so are the methods each person uses. Keep trying different things. There’s bound to be a combination of things that works for her.

              Yep, definitely it will be a combination of things, and the combination will be different for each person.

              People should try a few things, until they spot what is the best option for them.

              I wish someone would invent the perfect permanent hair removal product.

              well, I always felt that since hair is supposed to grow there and the skin may be better because of it so letting the hair grow a day extra before shaving it seems good for the healthiness of the skin. I Just want a great shaving method…for her.

              Also, shavers have 2, 3, 4 blades (these days) meant to get any missed hairs as the video adds show. I’ve used a screen shaver on myself and though it won’t last past 2 days, it is much better than a blade. Blades tend to remove skin along with hair, thereby creating a bacteria problem on the surface. My screen shaver won’t do that unless I go over the area like 15 times.

              My conclusion: multiple blades on a shaver are meant to remove hair in fewer strokes. This helps to eliminate bacteria (hence the bumps or “acne” on the area). For those with the cash, full area waxing, though somewhat painful for some, can help eliminate the constant blade shaves and help you to enjoy the hairlessness (my favorite). The embarrassment I suppose, of going to a woman who sees your parts and applies the wax, etc…may be a bit much for some…my wife would never do it. Perhaps my request has limits?

              So…my wife DW; has honored my request to shave it all. (there are additional reasons why she has agreed to it) However, she is a poor shaver and will not read articles or get advice on how to shave better. AND she says to me that she hates doing it but does it for me and repeats this rhetorical narrative often which may be why she does a poor job. I am satisfied with her shave but I really wished she would enjoy it not just for me but…ya know…the smoothness n all? (she is not on TMB)

                I’m not convinced that the shaving cream will make much difference, but the razor and the technique will.

                I use an old fashioned double edge razor on my face, and definitely feel a difference in how different brands of blade shave. Personally, I find that disposables are too light to be able to get a decent shave, and that cartridges are horrible to use but will actually give a close, smooth shave.

                Using at least 2 if not 3 passes will get a closer shave than just a single pass. Making the final pass across or against the grain will also give a closer shave, although be careful not to use too much pressure and cause irritation.

                  Would she consider a wax?  I’ve been getting Brazilians for 15 years now, and if you have a skilled technician, it barely hurts

                  Do you eve get ingrown hairs from waxing?

                  Every once and awhile, but there are products you use to help with this.

                  My DW would never do waxing. I wish she would. What is it every 3 weeks?

                    It may not work for everybody. But a bit of shower gel or soap as lubricant will help to have a smooth shave. Then wash it properly to remove all the shower gel or soap to avoid irritation, and for a perfect finish maybe apply some moisturizer/humectant cream.

                    Hair conditioner works better than shower gel.

                      @SongOfAngels, I think you’re right – pubic hair is coarser than hair in other areas (notably the face, as that’s the area men are most likely to shave), and therefore will feel stubbly.

                      i trim it and even then, if i trim too close (with scissors even) it feels coarse. Mine didn’t feel coarse until menopause which changes just about everything in a woman (my head hair became curlier and a lot darker much to my chagrin and pocket book!) so i guess my husband just deals with the coarseness. He doesn’t object to hair at all but i do shave the  labia as i hate hair there and i do trim but i just chalked it down to the hair shaft being different there. I would love to have it waxed off but too expensive.
