The proper word is “Vulva”, but I prefer to call it “Vagina” so as not to confuse many people. “Vagina” is the preferred word for a woman’s private part, I’ve never heard anyone, including my OB/GYN, refer to it as Vulva… I wonder why “we” are afraid to say “Vulva”.. ?? Regardless, this article will discuss the proper way to shave your “vagina” to avoid those nasty razor bumps and minimize ingrown hairs. I’ve heard a lot of women talk about getting nasty razor rash a day or two after shaving, so I’m here to show you a great way to prevent or minimize the chance of getting them. I experiment a lot with my body, so this is a shave routine that works for me every time, and I hope it works for you too!

Things you will need

(a) New razor… a cheap disposable razor is a No-No. (Make sure you invest in a good quality razor; the ones with multiple blades and rotating heads are best because they provide a closer, smoother shave.)… Examples of good brands are Venus Embrace, Schick Quattro, etc.

(b) Pure Silk Women’s Shave Cream… Make sure it says “Sensitive Skin”…

(c) AYATE wipe… This will be used to exfoliate dead skin cells.

d) Shaving oil

(e) EQUATE Unscented baby oil (hypoallergenic). Make sure it contains vitamin E.

(f) Clean towel

Step by Step

(IN) Trim pubic hair (if it’s too hairy). This will make shaving easier and minimize irritation down there.

(B) Take a “warm” shower or bath for at least 15 minutes.

(vs) Use an Ayate washcloth and unscented bath soap to wash your private part. This will exfoliate dead skin cells.

(D) Apply some shaving oil on your private part… The razor will glide more easily and your skin will remain hydrated throughout the shaving process… Very important!

(MY) Apply a generous amount of shaving cream… A rich lather will protect your skin from nasty nicks and cuts. (Before applying shaving cream, make sure your private area is Damp, Not Soggy)… Big difference!

(F) With a sharp razor, shave down. Be sure to rinse the razor every few strokes… Allowing the razor to clog will cause a mess on your private part.

(GRAM) When you finish shaving, rinse your private part well. Dry with a clean towel.

(H) Be sure to moisturize the shaved area right after you dry off. I use Equate Fragrance Free Baby Oil for this purpose. Yes, you will be greasy. Better fat than itch, right? ******Avoid applying scented lotions, this will irritate your skin and cause those nasty bumpy bumps****. Applies only on the outside!!!

A friend of mine suggests “Flawless Ingrown Hair Serum” and “Bikini Zone Anti-bump Shave Gel” to combat ingrown hairs and bumps. Keep it handy in case you need it.

(YO) Avoid wearing underwear for at least an hour. Also, avoid wearing tight clothing (especially jeans) right after shaving… (I often shave on my day off, so I just wear a skirt or baggy shorts with no underwear for the rest of the day). Anytime your private part starts to feel dry, apply more baby oil to the outer parts only. Dry private parts = itchy private parts.

Final note: Ladies, if you want to go completely bald, I suggest you get a Brazilian wax. Trying to completely shave your pubic hair can be dangerous because you could cut your inner vulva. Brazilian Wax also keeps you bald for a few weeks and you don’t have to worry about razor bumps either.

A quick summary: I am by no means claiming that this method will prevent bumps and ingrown hairs on everyone. This is just one shaving method that works for me, so I decided to share it with everyone in the hope that it will help someone else. Health!
