Use Conditioner To Avoid Discomfort From Shaving Your Crotch

If you’re shaving down there for your own benefit or your partner’s, Thought Catalogue reader skootch_ginalola suggests you should use hair conditioner instead of shaving cream for a smooth, clean shave.

When shaving your private areas (male or female), wet the area and the razor, ignore soap/shaving cream/gel and go straight for the hair conditioner. Shave as normal. Skin will be baby smooth with no ingrown hairs or bumps. Learned this from a stripper when I asked if she had to constantly get Brazilian waxes. Can also be used to shave legs, facial hair or shave a guy’s head.

I used to shave my face this way and it does work well, save one little problem: conditioner will gunk up the blade a lot faster. You have to make sure to clean it thoroughly afterwards and know you might be replacing said blade sooner as a result. Still, it seems like a cost worth incurring for a clean, smooth, comfortable crotch.
