Male Organ Hair Growth - What's Normal and What's Not

Article Review   by:JohnDugan     Original Author: John Dugan

All humans, male and female, have hair all over their bodies, with the exception of the palms of the hands and the soles of their feet. Aside from the hair on the head and the pelvic region, most of this hair is relatively light and downy, and in many cases, it is barely visible unless viewed in the light from certain angles. On the other hand, a substantial number of individuals have thicker, coarser hair that grows on the back, arms, legs, and other parts of the body where it is not always seen as desirable. While this is perfectly normal, it can cause distress, especially when it comes to male organ hair growth in men. Males who develop hair not only in the pelvic region, but on the shaft of their male organ, may have questions about whether this normal and how to get rid of it. Men who do choose to remove this hair may require extra male organ care to prevent skin problems from cropping up.

Why it grows there

Hair growth patterns are mainly genetic, but they can also be affected by hormone levels; therefore, while male organ hair may be perfectly natural, it can also be caused by certain medications or medical conditions.


What it looks like

Hair on the male organ may appear dark and coarse, like the pelvic hair, or it may be soft and barely visible. The hair may surround only the base and lower shaft, but some men may experience hair growth all the way up to the head.


Is it normal?

In most cases, the answer to this question is yes, it is perfectly normal. Men who notice hair growth from puberty onwards can generally be assured that it is a normal genetic variation and nothing to worry about, as it does not affect reproductive function.


For a small number of men, hair growth can signal a change in hormone levels, as mentioned previously. If abnormal amounts of hair on the male organ or elsewhere on the body begin to appear, it is a good idea to talk to a doctor to determine if there may be some underlying health issue.


Can it be permanently removed?

In general, there is no medical reason to remove hair on the male organ, but many men prefer to go hairless for cosmetic reasons. Removing it from the pelvic region is more difficult than on other parts of the body, because the skin is more delicate and cannot tolerate some of the common hair removal procedures used on the legs, arms, and so on.


Depilatory creams are ordinarily not recommended for this area, as they can cause chemical burns. Furthermore, they do not work well on this type of hair. The same holds true for Brazilian waxes; using a wax hair removal system on the male organ can seriously damage the skin.


Some men may choose to simply shave the hair off, which offers a short-term solution, but unless the hair is shaved constantly, the regrowth of stubble can cause irritation in a partner. The most popular solution seems to be plucking the hair out with tweezers. This can be an uncomfortable and tedious operation, but in time, plucking the hair can result in slower regrowth and finer, less-visible hair.


Caring for the male organ after hair removal

Whether a guy chooses to shave, tweeze, or some other method of removing the hair from the manhood shaft, the operation can leave the skin feeling sore, raw and tender. In addition, it is common for the follicles to become red and inflamed due to the introduction of bacteria during the process. While shaving bumps may fade after a few days, they can be extremely uncomfortable until they are healed unless measures are taken to soothe and soften the skin.


While men may use aftershave on the face to combat the same problem, this will clearly not work on the manhood skin, as it is too delicate for the chemicals in products like these. A good alternative that can speed healing and provide relief comes in the form of a male organ vitamin cream (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil) that is enriched with vitamin A, a natural antibacterial agent, and Shea butter, a soothing plant oil widely used for its skin healing and protectant properties. Applying a male organ cream after a shower can both soothe irritated skin ad help to keep it soft and smooth so that future hair removal may be less traumatic for the manhood tissue.
