Hairs get sharp?: Some people's skin react to inflammation (skin irritation or trauma, leading to a healing reaction) due to shaving, scratching, rashes, meds, sunburns, etc..., with a healing reaction that produces itching. Sometimes, using Hydrocortisone cream 2 days before through 2 days afterwards, can decrease itching. If it's just the cut ends of hairs causing itching, an anti-itch skin anesthetic may help.

Moisturize: Insure you use fresh, sharp blades vice dull blades. If hair is > several mm long – then trim before shaving. Wash area before shaving – warm water helps to soften hair. Use a lubricant when shaving. Avoid using products that contain alcohol or are scented. Shave in direction of the hair – not against it. Be gentle when shaving – don’t push down too hard. Moisturize skin after shaving.
