Ok so I dont want to wax down there , been there done that and it went horribly wrong. I have just trimmed with my shaver and used nair aferwards. I used the sensitive one as not used it befor. Im quite dissapointed with the results as im still quite bristly .
So what do you use to get completely smooth down below?
I always use oh's Mach 3 razor along with nivea sensitive shaving gel and it seems to get me lovely and smooth - I do it every 2/3 days though. I did read on here somewhere that a little baby oil massaged in afterwards keeps everything soft and smooth down there and helps to prevent shaving rash :)
if your shaving, do it during or after a shower so the hair is softer.
Make sure the razor blades are sharp and good quality.
use a decent lather, maybe even use a shaving brush to work up a lather as the brisltes from the brush prime the hair by lifting them off the surface and coating them in the soap/gel/foam.
Firstly shave with the direction of the growth, keeping the strokes long and firm, so your not repeatedly going over the same area.
Re-lather with the brush and now go in a sideways direction to the hair growth. This wil give you a closer shave.
If you want an even closer shave repeat again, but now go against the direction of the growth.
Wash off and smother in a moisturiser. I would suggest coconut oil as a moisturiser.
The other thing to remember is the type of razor you use. The normal marketed razors nowadays have thicker blades, which means not as close a shave - were talking microscopic here but is all makes a difference. If your feeling brave, then try using a traditional barbers razor which has a single blade. These have a thinner edge (again microscopically thinner so not noticable to the human eye) but give you a closer shave.
Although you said you had a bad waxing experience, it may well be down to the therapist, so I would recommend trying this again for real smoothness. Also waxing gets better and better each time and usually after the third or fourth time all the hai is growing equally and will pull out more successfully.
