Shaving Guide For Young Girls

For a young girl hitting puberty, hair removal isn't an easy choice. We bring you a guide to an easy and painless option - shaving. Read our tips to find out everything you need to know about shaving body hair.


Puberty must have hit and so has the hair growth. If you have made a choice to go for hair removal, we are here to hold your hand through the process. We want to help you with the easiest, painless process – shaving.

When to start

There’s no real time to begin shaving, but generally, most young girls start shaving when there’s excess hair growth on their legs, arms, or underarms. It’s good to consult with your mother, older sister, or aunt before you go about it, though – they will give you a better idea about how to go about it safely, given their experience.

The Shaving Part

If you’re starting out with shaving, it’s best to go with a razor that’s safe, effective, and woman-specific like the Gillette Venus razor specifically made to suit a woman’s contours. After you choose your razor, here are few steps you could use for a close, smooth easy shave.

  1. First, soak hair in the shower for 2-3 minutes to soften it.
  2. Then, lather up with a shaving gel like Satin Care Gel. Shave gel helps keep the water in the hair and makes sure that the razor glides easily over your skin, protecting you from potential nicks and cuts.
  3. Always use a light touch, don’t press down, & shave legs from the ankles up. For your underarms, shave from all angles - up, down and sideways.
  4. After shaving, it is always important to moisturize. It helps keep your skin hydrated & glowing.
  5. Don’t rush the shave. Shave slowly and gently, applying just enough pressure on the razor. If you press the razor down too hard on your skin, you might just get scraped. So, use a light touch when shaving and let the razor do its job.
  6. Exercise more caution on the curves of your body like the bends of the knee and bumps of the ankles. Because of their shape, they are more susceptible to cuts.
  7. Use short strokes on tighter areas like the knees and underarms and longer strokes on the legs and arms.

Maintaining your Razor: 

Replace your razors or cartridges periodically. After about three or four uses, the indicator strips on razors tend to fade. This is an indication that the razor isn’t going to be as effective and that the blades have started to become dull. A dull blade won’t give you a close enough shave and will also increase the likelihood of developing cuts. Most importantly though – never share razors and never borrow your brother’s or father’s for a shave.

 

Shaving in the bikini area

When it comes to your pubic area, the hair down under is a lot coarser and thicker than on other parts of your body. Before shaving, make sure you’ve followed the warm water and shaving gel instructions, as mentioned earlier.

Since the skin there is sensitive, you must be a little extra careful about how you shave down there. Preferably keep a separate razor for the bikini are alone. Use short strokes when shaving and maintain a very light touch. . Since the hair growth is denser, you may even need to go over a certain patch twice; but make sure you’ve got shaving gel serving as a buffer underneath at all times. Once you’re done shaving, use a lotion (that has no traces of alcohol) to soother the area. Tight underwear traps the skin and doesn’t let it breathe, leaving the skin dry after shaving – these are often the causes of itchiness and skin irritation. So continue wearing light cotton underwear while keeping the area well moisturised for the next 2-3 days.

And there you have it. Now that we’ve provided you a complete guide, your first shave will be like a breeze. Smooth, soft, and silky skin with no pain whatsoever – this is a first you’re going to remember!
