Shaving question... maybe TMI adult content

I shave my lady parts and I try to keep it up but if the hair starts growing back at all it gets really itchy. Its so annoying. Is this normal? What can I do to stop this?

  • You will eventually get used to the itch and then you won't feel itchy any more. When I first started shaving I itched like crazy after a few days, but now it doesn't bother me. The skin just needs to get used to being shaved and stubbly, that's all.

  • Happens to me too, baby powder works but as long as you keep up on its maintenance you should be fine.

  • Yeah, its normal. Maybe get some bikini lotion to rub on afterwards, Or try nair (not the best, but stops thee itch)

  • Smooth conditioner over "it" after your done shaving. Will close the pores

  • Nair is less irritating for me, too. It still gets a little itchy as it grows in but not as much

  • I've tried to wax but it bled and bruised really bad. I've tried using nair on my legs and it doesn't work at all. Am I doing something wrong?
