Shaving is the most common way to remove male pubic hair but it does come with many risks such as inflammation, skin irritation, and itching.
If you’re looking to skip these side effects, there are many other ways to remove male pubic hair without needing a razor.
This article will cover all the possible ways available and the steps to take.
How To Remove Male Pubic Hair Without Shaving
This is a bit painful process but there is some sort of gain to it. Unlike shaving, the hair won’t grow back as fast and you have to deal with less mess when you’re done.
The secret to the process is to be gentle when you pluck the hairs. Doing it too forcefully might injure the skin and lead to irritation or infection.
If you’re not up for the pain, then you might want to skip on tweezing. There are less painful methods to try out. For those ready to get rid of pubic hair regardless of the pain, they can start by
- Disinfecting the pair of pubic hair tweezers (this prevents the chances of any infection)
- While you might want to get into somewhere private for this, ensure that you have good lighting.
- Hold the skin tight, and grab the end of the hair between the tweezer prongs. With a bit of force, gently yank the hair out in the direction of hair growth. This step is important to prevent the occurrence of hair growth.
- While doing this, you might have to put yourself in a compromising position. Look up and around after a few minutes to avoid neck cramps.
If you’re not going for clean-shaved pubic hair, there is no better way to get rid of excess pubic hair than by trimming.
You can do this with scissors or go for a pub hair trimmer which adds a bit of style to it. With electric trimmers, you can do things like detailing your pubic hairs for a classier look for your partner.
There are almost no complications to worry about since the scissor or trimmer won’t touch your skin directly.
Here’s how to go about it
Start by disinfecting the pair of dedicated haircutting scissors. If you’re going with an electric trimmer, you should apply shaving oil to the trimmer before use.
If you’re trimming, you should only do so when your pubic hair is dry. This ensures that the hairs don’t bunch together.
Start slowly. Do not cut the hair to the desired length the first time, instead, start by cutting it down one step at a time until you get the results you want.
Depilatory Cream is another easier way to remove male pubic hair without shaving. These chemical hair removers act by weakening a substance in hair called keratin. This causes the hair to fall out and can be easily wiped off.
Using a depilatory cream is quite easy. Simply, apply them to the area you want to remove the hair from, wait for a few minutes, and wipe off the cream which will take the hair along with it.
Depilatory creams can be bought over-the-counter and are one of the easiest ways to deal with pubic hair issues especially if you want to skip shaving.
However, they can be full of ingredients that may cause allergic reactions or lead to irritations thereafter.
Due to this, you would want to perform a Patch Test before using a depilatory cream. A Patch Test is an allergy test that will determine if you’re allergic to the ingredients in the cream.
To do this, simply, apply a small amount of the cream on a patch of skin like your arm and wait for 24 hours for any reaction.
If there is no redness, inflammation, or irritation, it shows that you aren’t allergic to the cream, therefore, it is safe to use. You might also want to talk to a doctor before using over-the-counter depilatory creams.

Waxing just like tweezing is a painful hair removal process but it does come with its perks. With this hair removal process, you can get rid of hair in a wide area in just a second which saves you time unlike tweezing which requires dealing with one hair at a time.
In addition, it can remove hair for a longer period of time than many hair methods. Also, you would have to worry less about itching when the hairs grow back.
If you choose to wax yourself, follow the steps below
- Get over-the-counter wax and waxing strips.
- Clean, and disinfect your pubic area.
- Apply a warm wax and then a waxing strip to the area.
- Firmly rip the strip away from the skin.
- It would take away all the hair it comes in contact with leaving clean smooth skin.
Laser Hair Removal
Laser hair removal is more of a medical process that would require the services of a doctor or dermatologist.
Here, the doctor uses a laser device on your bare skin that sends concentrated light down to the hair follicles. This heat weakens or destroys the hair follicles preventing the hair from growing back.
This a permanent hair removal process though hair could regrow back in some cases, it usually takes longer than any other process.
The problem here is that is it quite expensive and you will require several treatments before the hair follicles are completely damaged.
It is quite similar to laser in the sense it aims to damage the hair follicles. This treatment makes use of an epilator to destroy hair follicles, however, it does this one hair at a time and would take a longer time than laser removal.
If you are worried about the itching and irritation that comes with shaving, then trimming could be the right go-to option.
However, if you want something that would last a while, then you can get some tweezers or go ahead with waxing strips. Depilatory creams come in handy too.
