How to get rid of unwanted hair before that special day.

Bun

Curly hair “down there” is so annoying! It’s often coarse and thick even if the hair on top of your head isn’t. A curly batch of hair down there isn’t the most attractive feature on your body, and not something you want to be worrying about on Valentine’s Day! So what can you do about it and how can you get rid of it before that special day?

Shaving

Shaving is probably the quickest and easiest way to get rid of pubic hair, but it doesn’t last for long. If you opt to shave your hair, you’ll probably want to do it the morning of Valentine’s Day (the later, the better) to keep the area down there smooth for your romantic evening. Make sure you use a hypoallergenic soap (baby shampoos and other “tear free” formulas are good for this) so you don’t give yourself an insane rash or cause severe itching! Original Sprout’s Children’s Natural Shampoo is a good no-tear and sulfate-free option, and it’s extremely gentle — plus, our reviewers give it a 5-star rating!

The most convenient way to shave hair down there is to sit on the side of a bathtub. You can probably shave the top and some of it in the shower, but in order to see all of it, you’ll practically need to be a contortionist! Dampen the hair with some water, and then add a touch of a gentle shampoo – enough to work up a decent lather – and go to town! With a razor, you can decide how much hair you want to leave, or get rid of it all.

If it’s been awhile, it may take awhile to get all of it. A quick way to get the bulk of the hair would be to use an electric shaver with a spring-release, pop-up trimmer on the backside. If your man doesn’t mind sharing, his electric shaver probably has this feature! The hair you shave will rinse right out when you’re done. Some men more than just “don’t mind;” they want to assist with all of your shaving needs! If this describes your man, have fun with it and enjoy the bonding time! Just go over the area with the pop-up trimmer to get rid of the majority of the hair, and then go back over it with a razor and gentle shampoo for precision.

Waxing

Yep, you can do the same stuff you might have done to your eyebrows on pubic hair. However, we’re obliged to warn you: this isn’t for the weak or for those with a low pain tolerance. It also isn’t as private as shaving at home, since you’ll need to go to a salon to have it done (unless you’re comfortable waxing yourself).

With waxing (also known as “bikini waxing"), you can choose from a variety of styles. The differences lie in just how much hair you have removed. A “regular bikini wax” will trim just the hair outside of a bikini, and a “full bikini wax” removes the same hair but goes in a little further than a regular goes. “French bikini waxes” remove all of the hair from the front and sides, whereas a “Brazilian bikini wax” takes off hair on the front, sides and around to your bottom (you can opt to have a “happy trail” or “landing strip” left in place). Finally, a “Hollywood bikini wax” gets ALL of it gone; you’ll have no pubic hair left whatsoever.

Final Thoughts

If you’re hesitant about getting rid of the hair down there, you can also work at just softening it so you’re not ashamed! Just as the hair on your head gets hard and dry, the same goes for the hair down there. Each time you shower or bathe, use a mild shampoo and follow with a gentle conditioner to keep that hair soft. You can also use a hydrating lotion (apply it so that the hair goes downward) after each shower.
