    Um, you didn't mention where you shaved but I can guess. Yes it will itch somewhat when it initially grows in. Strangely enough the last time I did this it did not itch growing back. Perhaps it is your age that is part of the problem.

    I had laser hair removal and it's amazing. Never have to shave at all. It was pretty painless and it looks great. It takes between 4 - 6 treatments as each hair growth cycle has to be treated but it is so worth it!

    because you irritated the skin; most likely because it was the first time you shaved or yo may have shaved against the hair.


    next time, make sure you've got a nice shaving cream, shave in the direction of the hair so as to minimize skin irritation.





    it's just like your face; only more sensitive.

    haha believe me; i'm a expert pube shaver. Once a week, every week=) The itching was caused by razor burn (im sure there were some red bumps also). You can prevent razor burn by:

    1. use lots of shaving gel (gel, not cream)
    2. wet the area with warm water before hand
    3. press lightly with your razor; too much pressure is was leads to cuts and bumps. Hold the razor steady, but dont press hard.
    4. shave with the grain. Go over each area a few times with short, light strokes shaving with the grain.
    5. Moisturize the area with body cream or lotion both directly after you shave, and every time you get out of the shower. Showers dry your skin out a lot (mostly due to the soap) so you gotta keep the area moisturized.

    Do these, and youll be itch/bump free and looking sexy icon_biggrin.gif

    Do not shave, and just clip it.

    Good heavens BearCub17 if you shave down there you must spend a fortune on shaving cream and razors! That is if your chest hair density is anything to go by.

    Yeah, your skin has to get used to shaving. I first started shaving in college. I ruined a number of my boxers by constantly scratching my crotch. It doesnt last too long. You just have to maintain.

    I considered getting laser hair removal but read a couple of scary things that have happened to people of color. So I figured I will hold off.

    Yes people of color regardless of race can have some major skin pigmentation issues. I've seen a few people who have had a changes to their skin as the laser is attracted to the color. Which is why generally only darker hair is removed with laser treatment.

    A little baby powder sprinkling helps, too.
