Shaving my vagina

When I shave my vagina I can't seem to make it completely smooth. I got really short hairs that are really sharp! Even when I use a new razor. Does anyone have any suggestions?

ANSWER #2 of 57

get a hot wax from a proffesional, prefferably one that has no issues with doing a full brazzilian, as your goodies are gonna be in view if you want *everything* clean.

dont do cold wax/sugar wax kits (such as nads) for this particular area.

shaving your inner thighs and labia is NEVER a good idea, even if you are not prone to bumps and ingrown hairs. hair removal cream is ALSO A BAD IDEA, this skin is sensitive, and this hair is coarse, the time you would need to leave the cream on to get clean smooth skin could prove disasterous. it is not worth the risk.

after several waxing sessions at a salon you will notice it does not hurt or scare you nearly so much, and eventually you will be able to give yourself a very good hot wax treatment at home with great success.

I reccomend the sally hanson brazillian formula kit, it is by far my favorite.

ANSWER #9 of 57

hi there ! I'm a somatologist student and I recommend laser hair removal or electrolysis. It is a much convenient way of hair removal and is permanent according to the stage of the hair growth (Hair needs to be in the active stage of growth.). It may be painful but gets the job done. Shaving removes superficial layers of the skin and to shave in the vaginal area where skin is highly sensitive can be traumatic to the skin. Make sure you go to a professional for permanent hair removal. take care

How to get a clean-shaved vagina?
ANSWER #11 of 57

First, before I answer your question, let's make your question logical, rational and correct instead of the way it makes you look now which is ignorant, stupid and uneducated, okay?

The outer part of your sexual organs is called the VULVA which has 2 large "lips" called the labia majora. The inside canal that leads to your cervix and uterus is called the VAGINA. So, that being the case, here is your answer...your pubic hair is there for a reason. While it doesn't actually "lubricate" your body like an oil or lotion would, it does allow your thighs to move about and have a barrier between your thighs and your torso.

Shaving your vulva is only a temporary thing you need to keep doing to maintain that smooth look and feel for a short time. That is also an area that gets warm for many reasons and could cause you to have more than usual infections, ingrown hairs and yeast infections as well. I believe it is best to keep your pubic hair short as nature will continue to grow it back time and time again.

Some things in life you just can't change so you might want to get used to the way nature was, is and will always be. As far as waxing goes, it's your vulva, your life and your money so you know what's best for you. Good luck in your decisions!

What do I do about the red rash I get after shave my vagina?
ANSWER #12 of 57

If you exfoliate well, there will be no razor bumps or ingrown hair. You can't exfoliate after shaving, but it must get down the day after and every day you shower after. When we exfoliate we unblock those poors that will cause problems, with shaving those private areas.

For those who think getting Bazilian Waxed is painful, you must find the wax that best works for you. Waxing should be a PAINLESS experience. NEVER USE HARD WAX OR STRIPS. NEVER go to a place that recycles the wax. For private areas, you should ONLY be using GREEN WAX, it reduces irritation, and redness. Extremely effective for short hair, shaved hair and coarse hair. It also removes hair from the root decreasing the incidence of in-grown hairs. I live in the Orlando area and get waxed at a place in Orlando called Depiwax Orlando @ 2941 East Colonial Drive Orlando, Fl 32803 (407) 895-0816. Check there website out: www.depiwaxorlando.com

ANSWER #19 of 57

I use one of those electic shavers for women. They work wet or dry, I prefer wet. You don't have to worry about bumps, razor burn, or getting cut. The hair doesn't grow back for about 2 weeks and it leaves you really smooth. My boyfriend started shaving me with the electric shaver, now I love it!!!


ANSWER #20 of 57

I always use my boyfriend's gillet razor. (why are guys' razors better than womens??) .. anyway, when I lived with my grandparents, I used my nan's Sally Hansen hair removal cream for the front part of my vajay and shaved the part between my thighs... cause that part don't normally get bumps. (I need to buy some more Sally Hansen, haha) I also like using after-wax oil stuff. I got it in a wax kit..I think it was nair, I tried that but it didn't work on that area at all, the hair is too thick I suppose... but don't shave just once a week, ewww. I shave every single day.


ANSWER #21 of 57

Your not shaving the right way then. Try this:

-Always use a brand new razor
-Shave while you are still in the shower - with the water hitting the area you are shaving
-Use baby oil or baby oil gel to shave - it stays on in the water and makes you smoother
-Shave in the opposite direction of the hair growth - that's the only way to get a close shave
-Only shave once a week to prevent shave bumps
-Use lotion (nonscented) or Bikini Zone after shaving to help prevent shave bumps.

shave while your taking a bath. Make sure its all under the water, and just start shaving. It doesn't hurt at all and all the hair doesn't clog your razor. :)


ANSWER #30 of 57

Just so you know, you can't actually shave your vagina, partly because there is no hair there, and partly because your vagina is inside of you. What you are thinking of is your vulva.


ANSWER #31 of 57

Razors for men are the best, there sharper, and shave better without going over and over it, I use to get the burns, but then I used this product called bikini zone, that helps you not get them, after I shave it's all smooth and I put ahloah vera, and you won't get the bumps!


ANSWER #32 of 57

Sometimes, I get shave bumps and razor burn if I shave directly the opposite direction of the hair down there- shaving upwards, that is.
I shave to the side and backwards on the lips to shorten up the hairs, add more conditioner (which I shave with) and THEN shave slowly but firmly in the opposite direction of the hair growth and it makes me shave extra close every time.


ANSWER #33 of 57

only other thought is to take a bath. lay in the water for 15+ minutes and it will soften everything up and allow a nice close shave


ANSWER #34 of 57

ANSWER #41 of 57

Just as a caveat -- if you shave any hair in the opposite direction of the growth, you are at much higher risk for the hairs to become ingrown when they grow back.

ANSWER #45 of 57

I wait til my hair gets longishhh enough for it to not hurt as I shave it. in the shower I put some conditioner on it... it helps me.


ANSWER #46 of 57

shave it everyday not every week cause the hairs grow back really fast. I wld recommend waxing, im a beauty school student and I was shaving all the time, I just got a brazilian and its so smooth and clean id rather wax now. its guna hurt but waxing anywhere is gunna hurt!


ANSWER #47 of 57

I dont recommend that anyone shave the vagina. Get veet, or nair. Or get a wax. It hurts for a few seconds and then your smooth for weeks. Think of it this way, what happens if you accidently slip and cut your clitoris, or your vaginal lips(it happened to me). It hurts like hell and takes forever to heal. If I do have to shave I get my boyfriend to shave me, but even with that you have to have a lot of trust and make sure he/she has a steady hand. and oh yeah just because you have never had a razor bump, you can always develop one, and how terrible does that look to have bumps on your vag? Might ruin the moment for a guy/girl to see a bump in between your crevices.


ANSWER #48 of 57

Shave in the opposit direction of the hair growth. I do mine all over every day. I find that gillette Men's razors are the best. I want to get waxed but I am too scared as it will hurt. Being nice and smooth is the way forward.

Wilkinson sword bikini line, trimmer & shaver! or venus embrace, 5 blades and a moisturiser, it also has a blade that goes with the curves whichis really helpful. when I shave my hair grows back pretty quick for example after two days of shaving I'l be spikey again! really anoying so I bought wilkinson sword bikini like which is a trimmer & shaver & I have to sey it works miracles! moiusturise after a shave aswell legs armpits & down there :)also my dad uses the 3 step shave thing from gillette, when you put a lotion on before shaving, during & after! really helps I feel so much cleaner & smoother aswell! everyone is different so one shaver could be good for one person but not for the other, so just experiment & remember practice makes perfect :) ahaa.
