  • I use Nair. I can't even begin to shave properly there.

  • Look at the way that your hair lies down or sticks up. That should give you the direction of your hairs growth. I start from the top and then go up. Depending of if I missed a hair.

  • I don't shave with hair growth, but then... I've done it since I was 10, and was swimming competitively. If you're accustomed to doing so, you don't get razor burn, or worry about cuts, it's no different than shaving your legs.

  • First, you need to trim the hair so you can see the direction of growth. Second, you shouldn't shave with, but across - never against. By shaving across you are able to get a closer shave than you will if you go with. And you should work in very small sections at a time. Each person's hair grows in differently and each little section or area can grow in a separate direction as well... Really, once you do it properly a few times, you'll get in the habit and it will be second nature...

    Consequently, this is the same way a man should shave his face or you should shave your legs...

  • I've shaved for years, I pretty much go in a multitude of directions, up, down, this way and that way, lol
