Its fine. If your insecure just remember its natural and every girl gets hair down there. And if you're wondering how people/your lover will think about it.simply talk to them, I myself as a lesbian feel its ok to grow it out down there,

I let mine grow but get ingrown hairs still. I really hate it, my doctor told me to use a hot compress but I have stuff to do and can't sit with a wet towel on my lady parts. He told me to use powder to reduce friction, yet the friction is between my underwear and hair, not hair abd leg. Would the powder work to reduce the friction between skin and underwear? I wear cotton all the time and wear loose fitting pants. I really hate this and he told me there is nothing to do except laser hair removal. Really?! Nothing to do for these darn hairs?! Is there a type of specialist that can remove them?

Speaking as a man I promise all you women that feel uncomfortable about letting it grow because you think men don't like a bush well there are many of us that do! And as such the men that do want a WOMAN not a little GIRL! In my honest opinion I think that men that make their women shave it are just secretly into pedophilia! So yes #LetitGrow #BringBackTheBush

So if you do have one,you just let it grow? Or? Will it come out bye itself?
Emily Osborne (1 год назад)
I will say a few of you have said you shave cos it gets to thick Venus do a razor for down there that trims it so its not so thick anymore but where its not been shaved down to the skin you don't get the ingrowing hairs its what u use if I feel like its too much and it is exactly like I don't shave but with the bonus of less hair yay xx
Emily Osborne (1 год назад)
love this video I used to be a shaver and a ingrowing hair but now I just let it grow and very rarely do I have ingrowing hair x
Merrida100 (1 год назад)
Let's be real.  I don't know of any women who save with the grain.  Most of us shave against it despite every report telling us not to because when we shave with the grain/growth, we're left with stubble, and that's what we're trying to avoid.  I think we can be instructed and lectured forever, but there will always be the pursuit of smoothness.
Michaela Beddis (1 год назад)
the hair down there is useful! it reduced friction during sex.

It's not true that only women who shave get ingrowns. I don't and get ingrowns all the time
TOP 10 CAUSES OF INGROWN HAIRS: 1. Too many passes with the blade. One pass, going 1-2 inches downward at a time will eliminate ingrowns. 2. Too many blades (if you are prone to ingrowns you don’t need 3 or more blades) 3. Pressing too hard on the skin with the blade. A gliding, light touch is all you need. This is likely your biggest issue. Follow #4 4. Not enough prep time. You should be using a warm/hot water prep (5 mins). Then leave the shaving creme on for more than 3 minutes to really soften the hair. The hair stubble should literally fall away with little or no pressure at all. Pressing is the problem! Be gentle ya'll. 5. Using a used blade (this one is obvious, of course). 6. Use of skin/pore clogging cremes or lotions. These keep hairs from growing up. After a shave, keep your skin bare; let it breath, and allow those newly shaved, really small, microscopic hairs to grow out just in time for the next shave. 7. Not enough exfoliation to remove excess layers of skin. Use a skin care brush designed for exfoliation as directed. 8. Shaving too many times. This rule is hard to follow especially if you have to shave for your career but if you are prone to ingrowns, try shaving with an electric clipper. The results are not super close but no one but you will know the difference. 9. Shaving against the grain. Shave in the direction of hair growth (usually down, but perform a face map to be sure). 10. Avoid tight fitting clothing around the Adam’s apple (neck) and/or below the waistline region.

Hey Kristen! I'm okay with my mom's decision to shave but a lot of the time she harps on me when I don't do it. She says she's trying to protect me from harsh comments from other people but literally I don't care because I'm not as sensitive as she is. I've already developed a preference of when I like to shave and what I think is appropriate (I feel like she thinks it's worse than it actually is). It's become more annoying when she gets angry with me especially in public. I kindly told her to lay off bugging me about this issue but she persists. How do I deal with this/get her to stop?

Laser hair removal also helps diminishing the amount of ingrown hair as laser damages follicle structure.
Little Dream (2 года назад)
So, let me get this straight: It itches when it grows back, you have the risk of those ingrow hairs, it takes time and money. All to remove something that is comepletely natural for a female. No way. #LetItGrow #OrJustTrim
J. C. (2 года назад)
Or just trim the hair. The fact is, long unkempt hair can get in the way of playtime, alone or with friends, so a moderate buzz will do a fine job of keeping things out of the way of the fun without risking razor burn or ingrown hairs. This is good advice for all sexes.

Sometimes I have to REALLY dig in with the tweezers to pull an ingrown pubic hair to the surface and pluck it out of the follicle, and then I'm bleeding for a good 5 to 10 minutes afterwards, with a big, tall pool of blood rising above the wound.

Cristen, could you make a video on vaginal discharge? (TMI ALERT) I get vaginal discharge very heavy at some point (often not even related to ovulation) and it gives me stains in literally ALL of my underwear! When I wear dark underwear (e.g. black) I get beige stains, and when I wear lighter color like white I get murky yellow stains. I clean down there, like, ALL THE TIME (basically whenever I go to the bathroom) but it doesn't seem to do anything. I can never get the stains out, and I'm debating on wearing a panty liner all the time whenever I'm not on my period to avoid it. But I don't know if this would be a waste of panty liners or not. I'm personally looking for any way to handle this in a logical manner, but I can't seem to find anything. Thank you. :D
MichiruEll (2 года назад)
I used to get a lot of discharge as well, and I used panty liners, but I then learned that those could make it worse. Basically, your body's flora (so the healthy microorganisms that live down there) is supposed to self-regulate. Apparently, things you can do to help are: wear cotton underwear, and if you can sleep with no underwear if you can. And don't clean too much. If you use soap (especially soap that is not designed for that area) it can kill the healthy microorganisms, which can cause imbalance leading to more discharge. I've heard that there are also changes you can make to your diet (drinking water is always a good idea). So what I do is that, whenever I shower, I clean the outside with soap, and rince the inside (between lips) only with water (also, dry well when getting out of the shower). And I try to sleep without underwear as often as can. This has honestly worked great for me, and I don't get much discharge anymore. Finally, if there's a lot of itchiness, it can be a sign of yeast infection.

Okay as a gay man I am okay with and even attracted to mild and light pubic hair, however when it gets into the jungle territory then I've asked every partner to trim mostly because I don't particularly enjoy pubic hair in my mouth eek! I am never one to ask or worse make anyone do something that they don't want to do but, however pubic grooming is a notable exception, is that an unreasonable request?
Jessica Canning (2 года назад)
Another excellent tip, use baby powder or cornstarch afterwards for the first few days to reduce friction and rubbing
abrahamchapman (2 года назад)
As a dude who regularly shaves his face, I think I'm far more qualified than Cristen to explain the ingrown hair. Ingrown hairs are because of multiblade razors, like the ones Cristen displayed for the audience, cutting hair far too close to the skin. One blade is all you need to get a clean-shaven look without all the irritation or ingrown hairs that the multiblade monstrosities cause!
T-Shades (2 года назад)
Holy shit, I thought you were just holding a 2D diagram until you started moving the hair! I don't know what I'd do with it, but I kind of want one.

Victoria Newman (2 года назад)
Glad I'm not the only one who always gets razor bumps and ingrown hairs down there. One time I got an ingrown hair the size of a quarter. I thought it was cancer! But I feel weird about not shaving; especially when I wear bikinis. People who speak on the subject always sound so disgusted by a woman's hairy genitals!

YOU SHOULD MAKE A VIDEO about how white women aren't really treated the same as black. On Instagram I searched up whitewomenmatter and there was 2 tags with 4 pictures when I searched blackwomenmatter I found millions of tags and it isn't fair cause all I wanna be is black I get called white girl ugly white girl all the time by black people but oh they matter much more
WriteAsRayne (2 года назад)
No one's saying they matter "more". They're saying black women matter, period. They matter TOO. Not "more". In our society, unfortunately people need to be reminded that black women matter just as much as everyone else. And for anyone bullying you because you're white, that's just wrong. You're gorgeous no matter the color of your skin. Don't let the words of jerks making fun of you drag you down because their words won't matter in the end. But also don't let them poison you against a movement meant to empower women who sorely need it. People who twist movements like that to belittle and hurt others are ultimately wrong.

Robert Neal (2 года назад)
Another option is part of the steps you detail near the end. You can trim the "zone" to your liking and skip the shaving part. It may not have quite the same appeal but you avoid ingrown hairs.

Why not use hair removal creams? It eventually kills follicles and it's painless if you don't leave it on for too long.

Aqualove (2 года назад)
Hmm sounds painful. I don't do anything. Trim or shave or whatever else. I don't know how it bothers so many ppl. I think it's when you get used to one thing you don't want it another way. I actually like long hair down there. I feel like it provides an extra layer of protection against abrasion from like pants and underwear and stuff and protects the skin. Anyone else find that?
This_is_a_Conundrum (2 года назад)
I like my full bush as well. I don't trim at all. I tried trimming and even shaving a couple of times when younger and hated the look and feel of the results. I have no patience for putting up with all the health hazards of shaving. Trimming makes it look like a rug and it looses it's nice soft curls and becomes prickly and poky. No thank you. If people at the beach or pool are put off by some hair poking out, well what the fuck are they doing staring at my crotch so closely in the first place?

As an hairy man, i am very familiar with ingrown hairs. The inner thighs are particularly vulnerable to that because of the friction when walking and such. I do not shave, but i still get ingrown hairs. Why didn't you suggest simply trimming instead of shaving? That's what i do for my beard. It's much less irritating, it makes ingrown hairs less frequent there and it's less maintenance.
Margaux (2 года назад)
Cristen! Can you do a video (or have done a podcast) about vaginal discharge? I feel like it is something that is rarely talked about even among sex educators since its not really about sex. Sometimes I worry that I have more discharge than usual but then every time I go to the doctor I forget to bring it up. I would also love to get the statistics and research about it. Thanks for all your hard work!!

Eli Nope (2 года назад)
hidden options not mentioned in this video, permanent hair removal through lasers or electrolysis treatment. waxing followed by exfoliation. you don't have to take other's opinions into account, that is what murderers do when they kill their victims, they don't care what the other person thinks. of course actions that concern your own body instead of the body of others is completely different. it does take two to tango, and perhaps you would prefer a different dancing partner.
