How to Trim Body Hair Mens?
Bringing a sharp instrument close to your genitals can be intimidating; but with preparation, time, and practice, manscaping can be an easy task. You may want to shave the hair from your scrotum the first time in your bathroom, to remove the long hairs. This is described below. But afterwards, the easiest way to shave your scrotum on an ongoing basis is to do it when you are lying on your bed on your back. A double-blade razor works really well. You should shave every few days this way. You do not need to use shaving cream.
- Trim the hair. Buy a safety razor and trim the pubic area to less than 1/4". This will make the hair easier to shave later. Longer hair is more likely to clog a razor. Using a safety razor will work better than scissors and it will cut the hair shorter. If you use a clipper make sure you use a 0 or 1 blade on it, if you do it will cut almost as close as a razor blade.
- Avoid using an electric razor that has rotating heads/trimmers on the scrotum. The skin of the scrotum is so thin and loose that it can be caught by the shaver, and this is extremely painful. Trimming the hair in this spot should be done with scissors.
- If you decide to use a men's electric razor, avoid shaving down the underside of the penis and on the center of the scrotum. Getting a cut in those areas will be excessively painful.
- After you trim your long hair off your scrotum the first time in the bathroom, you can trim your scrotum hair more easily by lying on your bed on your back. The same applies to shaving.
- Avoid using chemical depilatories. These are products that "melt" the hair away. Many men avoid using products like NAIR and other bikini area hair removal creams due to the sensitivity of the scrotal area. If you do want to try it, however, test the hair removal cream on the inside of your elbow before applying to your private parts. Then test a small amount of the cream on your genitals before going all the way. When applying it, do not allow any of the cream to get on the head (if uncircumcised, you can try to pull your foreskin well over your glans).
- Get in position. Ensure the room you are using for shaving will be private for at least an hour (or however long you think the process will take). This is not something you want to rush through! Consider shaving late at night.
- Consider shaving sitting in a very shallow hot bath. The hot water in the bath will prepare the area for shaving better than showering. Your body will be very stable (you are sitting down) and your genitals are very accessible. You also have a handy source of water in which to rinse the razor. If this is not possible consider shaving sitting down, ideally on the floor for ease of access and stability.
- If you use the edge of a toilet seat to sit on, letting your pubic area sit over a garbage can while shaving, the mess will be next to nothing to clean up. If you're using an electric razor, it can drop in the toilet so it's best to do it somewhere else.
- If you prefer standing, try shaving in your shower. Just make sure to stand out of the water to avoid watering down your shave lather, and constantly rinse your blade. By shaving at the start of the shower, you will let any cuts close themselves and thus avoid any stains in your clothes.
- Lather the area for shaving. Lather the area with the best shaving cream intended for sensitive skin, such as Taylor Bond Shaving Cream. Avoid menthol or heavily scented creams since they are a known irritant. This is going to minimize the number of cuts you get by adding in moisture throughout it. Complementing it with a shaving brush will help with loosening and softening the hair follicles, more than water can alone.
- Some electric razors are supposed to be used on dry skin. Read the manual of the electric razor to see if you should shave wet or...
