Time to groom your pubes... but there's just one problem, you're living in a college dorm. You're broke, you have limited privacy and your pubes are like Sasquatch's.
Don't fret, you can groom your pubes while living in the dorms. Follow these steps for a quality pube shave:
You need quality tools for cheap. Try razor subscription sites such as the Dollar Shave Club.
Men's razors will be best for precision, and the lotion strips on many female razors can cause irritations to sensitive areas. An electric shaver will also work. You will also want some shaving cream.
If you're into shaving shapes, get a comb and electric trimmer. You can get a small one for under $10.
The most private place with the easiest cleanup is the shower.
If your shower doesn't have a bar to put your leg up on, you will want something. A bucket, a stepping stool, something small.
If you're using an electric shaver, do so before you get wet.
If you're entirely using an electric shaver, you could do it in your room. Make sure your roommates won't be around for awhile, and be ready to vacuum right after.
3. Clean up.
Sweaty pubes don't shave well, and if you're doing your ass, then you definitely don't want poop in your tools.
If you'll be using a razor, it won't cut well if your hair is longer than one-third of an inch. Carefully use some scissors or electric shaver to trim it down to a short length.
If you're using an electric, still trim. You probably don't want super long shapes, and shorter hair will make your shape more defined.
Triangles, landing strips, whatever you want. To shape these out, use an electric trimmer. You want to start by combing your hair down, and then shaving the outline of the shape. Clear a 1/4-1/3 of an inch around the shape. While doing this, pull away from the edges of the shape into the hair you're going to remove.
6. Initial shave.
Shaving around your shape, use some shaving cream and shave with the grain. Shave with the grain. Shave with the damn grain or your pubes will look like a case of the chicken pox.
Tip: use both hands! Shaving is not a one-handed job, use the other hand to hold your skin in place while you shave.
7. Repeat step six as needed.
It may take a few times to get everything smooth. Make sure that during each go-over you are using shaving cream and shaving with the grain. Take your time, commit to a quality shave.
8. Nooks and crannies.
There are spots that are often forgotten when shaving. Make sure you get the crook where your leg meets your genital area.
Also, the point where your ass meets your back.
Use your hand to spread, hold and move bits that are usually forgotten.
9. Your ass.
If you're doing your ass as well as your frontal pube area, there are a few things to consider.If you have a vagina, do your vagina first. Butt bacteria + vagina = yeast infection.
That being said, make sure to clean your tools between uses. Use an electric razor to avoid nicking the puckered texture.
If you must use a razor, use a single-blade. This will give you more control of the surface of the blade to avoid nicks.
Other than that, follow the rest of the steps as usual.
Don't just shave your pubes and then hope for the best. Take care of them.
After getting out of the shower, use a sensitive moisturizer to prevent irritation. Coconut oil is pretty genitalia-friendly.
Regularly moisturize your pubes, and throughout the week for a quick touch-up use an electric trimmer.
Don't do a lazy shave. If you decide to quickly and roughly shave your pubes in a hurry, you're not going to get a good shave, and you'll irritate your skin.
