For those who shave "down stairs" (maybe tmi)

I was reading the post about the teenage girls shaving, and it got me thinking...

When I shave or wax for that matter, I get obnoxious red bumps that I feel are unattractive, I've read that they are ingrown hairs...
So I have a question...

What method do you use to keep that area to your personal preference?
How do you stop the ingrown hairs? And do you moisturise the area if its been shaved or waxed?

Thank you all!

 I use a at home laser hair removal. It works well and doesn't give me ingrown hais.

If I do it everyday they don't appear...but if I skip a day they come up...its weird. Also I don't use any lotions or moisturizer bc I have super sensitive skin.

Exfoliate the area to remove dead surface skin and prevent ingrowns

Oh I use a special shave lotion to help with that and I make sure my razor is still sharp.

I demand more info!

If I shave, it hurts really bad and bleeds. Apparently I have super coarse hair.

Solid stick deodorant immediately after you shave -- it's awesome.  Yep, rub it right on your hoochal area.  No more red bumps.

Oh and always use a fresh, super-sharp razor.
