Hi all, I'm new to this forum and would appreciate sharing a problem with u. My girlfriend is African and has problems shaving her pubic hair, since it sometimes results in very painful ingrown hairs. My previous Scandinavian girlfriends never had this problem. I find partial shaving very sexy, "porn style" (basically everything below the clitoris) and she doesn't mind this except she won't have the pain if a curly hair gets stuck in there, not finding its way out. I'm aware ingrown hair problems are more common in people of African heritage. My question is if waxing would reduce the risk, or if the result will be the same (after the initial smoothness). If so, I'll have to bear with trimming it as close as possible. If anyone here has personal experience in this matter, please share it with me. Thanx a lot.
