How to remove male pubic hair without shaving
How men can remove pubic hair at home
If you want to remove the pubic hair at home without shaving it, be aware that these solutions provide a temporary effect. This means that you'll need to keep a pubic hair routine to keep it tidy down there.
On the other side, professional pubic hair trimming can provide you with more permanent results but these options are more expensive.
Hair removal creams
Hair removal creams remove the pubic hair fast and without pain.
The downside of these depilatory creams is that they contain chemicals. These chemicals weaken the root of the hair, which allows to wipe off the hair together with the cream.
To prevent allergic reactions, test the cream on a smaller area of the body. See if you don't get any negative reaction from it. If you do, don't use it. If you don't, give it a try.
Because the cream weakens the root of the hair, the result lasts longer than after shaving or trimming.
Typically, this grooming method is painful because it removes large areas of hair by pulling out of its roots. However, waxing results last longer because it takes longer for the hair to grow back.
Mainly you have two waxing options.
The first option is to wax your pubic hair at home by yourself. The second option is having your pubic hair waxed professionally.
You can buy over-the-counter waxing strips and apply them in the comfort of your home.
Professional waxing produces similar results as home waxing does. However, a professional wax is less likely to miss any unwaxed areas.
Trimming with scissors
Trimming your pubic hair with scissors is probably the safest grooming method.
The fact that the scissors don’t make direct contact with the pubic skin provides a low risk of injuries.
To have an efficient trimming of the pubic area with scissors, clean and sharpen them. This ensures that they don’t tug the hair as they cut.
Also, try sitting when doing the job.
To maintain a well-groomed look, it needs regular trimming.
Laser hair removal
Laser hair removal uses a highly-concentrated beam of light to destroy individual hair follicles. For an efficient result, you have to do multiple sessions until the hair stops growing.
The laser light feels like a rubber band snapping on the skin.
Whether you’ll feel some discomfort or pain depends on your level of skin tolerance in the pubic area. But skin numbing cream is applied so the pain is very little.
If you go this route, you should commit to achieving a hair-free level of grooming in the pubic area. Because achieving a free-of-hair pubic area requires many sessions.
This method causes near-permanent hair loss after several treatments.
Electrolysis uses radio waves to the damage hair follicle to disrupt the growth of new hair.
