Pubic hair removal guide
To wax or not to wax is one’s own choice. Some do it for reasons of hygiene or aesthetics, and others keep it intact for the same reasons. Those who defend shaving the pubic area for hygienic reasons argue that this way the area is cleaner and washing can be done more efficiently.
In any case, if you have decided to remove part or all of the hair from your pubic area, we describe below the most commonly used hair removal methods, with their pros and cons, and the most popular designs. The tools and methods of hair removal are the same for men and women, and among the most conventional are:
In these cases, the only option is to shorten the length of the hair with scissors or an electric razor, but never at skin level. It is important to designate scissors or clippers only for this use and to disinfect them before and after use, and for greater safety should not be shared with others.
Pros: Keeps hair in the intimate area, so it is more protected, and you can do it yourself at home.
Cons: Maybe visible in the groin area with a bikini or underwear.
Shaving the pubic area can be done with blades – single use or with replaceable heads – or with depilatory creams, which are nothing more than chemical products that disintegrate the hair. Both are methods that cut the hair at skin level. Remember to keep the heads in good condition and free of rust, of course, do not share them and be very careful when using them. As for depilatory creams, do a small test before in another area of the body, because you may be allergic to some of its components and the intimate part is very delicate.

Pros: You can do it at home, its price is affordable and it does not hurt.
Cons: Cuts can occur with the blade, increasing the risk of infections, and creams can cause allergies or irritations. Also, there is an increased chance of ingrown hairs (folliculitis), and the hair tends to grow back after a short time.
Hot or cold waxing?
This is another of the most traditional methods for removing pubic hair; hot wax is deposited on the area to be waxed in the direction of the hair, allowed to cool, and removed by pulling against the hair. With cold wax, the strip containing the wax is rubbed to warm it slightly and placed, then simply pulled to leave the area clean.
Pros: the hair takes longer to come out because it is pulled out by the root, it can be done at home, but always following hygiene guidelines, and it has an affordable price.
Cons: it can irritate or burn the area, folliculitis pimples may appear, sometimes it requires going to a beauty salon, and it is painful.
Laser hair removal
Laser hair removal is one of the most fashionable methods because by means of laser light emissions the hair follicle does not produce hair again. There are different types of lasers, each with a certain wavelength, and each one is indicated for different skin color.
Pros: it is a permanent hair removal method, and fewer and fewer sessions are required for hair to disappear.
Cons: this technique is more expensive than all the previous ones, it usually hurts -although machines are being created that cause less discomfort-, and until the treatment takes effect you have to continue depilating with conventional means that do not pull the hair out by the roots, such as razors or creams.
