Here is the thing, everyone, and I mean everyone has butt hair and ever since the word metrosexual was introduced, grooming has taken a whole new meaning. It’s no longer about taking a quick shower, splashing some deodorant and heading out.
Men today are purchasing luxurious hair body products that leave them smelling like something you want to devour. Speaking of hair, a growing number of men go online in search of how to shave your ass techniques.
Why would you want to remove body hair, more specifically why remove the hair on your ass? We’ll be looking at why shaving butt hair isn’t as bad as it sounds and the best tools for the job.
It is natural for men to have butt hair and it is there for a reason. Butt hair helps keep the area back there dry and ventilated and at the same time minimizes friction and chaffing. Then again, the butt is arguably one of the dirtiest parts on your body and allowing body hair to grow freely there may put your health at risk.
Here are some valid reasons why you should shave off your ass hair:
Looking at the above reasons, it’s undoubtedly important for your anal region to stay clean and one of the best ways to achieve this is by shaving.
Another reason why you may want to shave your butt is for heightened sexual sense. Research shows that shaving butt hair increases skin sensitivity during sex.
It’s likely your sexual partner(s) won’t appreciate butt hair or love the musky smell that comes with it. If they prefer a smooth bum, shave it.
Men who shave their buttocks also feel more confident when approaching a potential partner, undressing at the gym, or when they go skinny dipping. There won’t be any unwanted hairs cramping your style.
So how do you remove ass hair?
Luckily, you have three options to choose from.
Many men prefer waxing their derriere as it is fast, effective and involves a quick trip to a waxing specialist. A waxed butt will remain hair-free for several weeks. You’ll, however, need to wear loose underwear after the procedure to reduce the risk of irritation and ingrown hairs on those smooth butt cheeks.
Laser hair removal is by far the best way to get rid of body hair. It uses laser light energy to pierce through the hair shaft and kill the root. This doesn’t kill hair follicles so technically, hair can grow in the place of the dead one but it may be difficult. This makes laser hair removal an extremely effective method. It takes around 30 minutes and you may require touch-ups annually or biannually.
If the prospect of lying with your butt in the air for some stranger to wax you doesn’t sound appealing or you can’t begin to fathom the cost of laser hair removal, shaving just might be the manscaping procedure for you.
Here’s how to shave your ass at home:
It’s natural to think that this act of bravery can be achieved with a good razor, but that’s just one of the tools you’ll need.
Other items that you’ll need include a handheld mirror to help you see where you’re shaving, antiseptic and powder.
Is shaving your ass hair worth it? Let’s check out the advantages and disadvantages of doing so.
An itchy ass can be stem from several reasons including food allergies, the clothes you wear or poor grooming practices among others. The best way to stop it from itching is by keeping your butt dry and use powder to lessen chaffing.
Additionally, stay away from baby wipes as this can lead to more itching. In case the scratching doesn’t stop, visit a doctor.
You probably don’t want to know this, since you asked; anal bleaching involves lightening the colour of the area (skin) around your anus. The skin around your anus is usually darker than the rest of your body; this cosmetic procedure is used to create uniform colouring.
The treatment can be done in a salon by a technician or you can purchase a home kit and DIY. Before purchasing any skin lightening product, research what ingredients have been used to ensure they are safe for you. Experts recommend that you avoid any sexual encounters for up to five days after bleaching to avoid getting infections.
Anal bumps may be caused by ingrown hairs or razor burns after shaving. You can soothe anal bumps by applying aloe vera cream or steroid cream. You can prevent ingrown hairs by applying moisturising shaving cream or gel on the butt hair and shaving in the direction of the grain and don’t try to pick the ingrown hairs.
