Removing pubic hair is not every woman’s thing but it is considered by most ladies the hygienic choice. Many women might give extra attention to the bikini line as it is the most visible in public especially during summer.
How to remove pubic hair
There are several methods to remove bikini line hair depending on what you’re comfortable with. Here are the best ways to remove bikini line hair with the pros and cons of each:
Shaving is one of the easiest methods to remove bikini line hair, even if it is not the best method. Shaving involves a razor and can sometimes lead to cuts that can also cause infection.
When shaving, use shaving cream to prevent the razor from making cuts, smoothening out the hair, and make it easier for removal. While shaving is one of the least painful bikini line removal options, the new hair coming out is thicker and creates itchiness.
Depending on how tolerant to pain you are and how experienced you are with removing your pubic hair, this is one of the safest ways to remove bikini line hair. This involves using wax or a sugar mixture as a sort of gluing agent that covers the hair.
The pain comes from having to pull the wax sheet/sugar in the opposite direction of the hair, pulling out the hair from the follicles in the process. While this sounds super painful (and it is!), the advantage is that it leaves your bikini line smooth, moisturized, and hair-free for at least 3-4 weeks.
Shaving cream for pubic hair removal is the easiest and fastest hair-removal method for pubic hair. However, its safety is questionable, making it the least favorite despite its practicality. Shaving cream contains chemicals that work on removing the hair strand in just a few minutes. These chemicals can affect your vagina’s PH levels and even cause infections.
Laser hair removal
Laser hair removal is one of the only permanent bikini line hair removal methods. It usually takes 6-8 sessions, but then you can forget about having to remove pubic hair altogether.
While laser hair removal is painful, you apply anesthetic in advance to numb the pain and make it bearable. Each session will take around 15-20 mins and you’ll only have to go once a month. While this option used to be quite expensive, many laser hair removal clinics now offer packages for as low as EGP 300 per session.
