Can I Color My Grey Pubic Hair?


Question: Can I Color My Grey Pubic Hair?

You are not alone. There are many people out there who have the problem with an aging pubic region but no one talks about it. I am bringing it out to the publics’ eye.

This has been an issue for women and men since the beginning of time. It is completely normal to have grey pubic hair. If you don’t like it, don’t fret. There is a solution, you can color it.



Is dying my grey pubic hair safe?

Yes. First, make sure you are using a product specifically designed for the pubic hair. Betty Beauty is the most known product for dying pubic hair. They have many colors to choose from traditional brown, black and blonde to crazy colors like blue and fuchsia (see list of pubic hair colors).

Can I use boxed hair color for my head on my pubic area?

You should never use hair color for your hair on your pubic hair. The hair color is formulated for the hair on your head and your skin in your pubic region is much more delicate and sensitive. There is always a possibility of experiencing irritations like burning, itching, blisters or redness. Always do a patch test before beginning with any product or process.

Are there any precautions I should take?

As I said before, always do a patch test before proceeding. Use petroleum jelly to cover the skin around the area of hair. This will allow for easy removal of color if it drips, which it probably will. Also for men, please cover the shaft of your penis and your scrotum.

How easy is the process?

The process is very simple. Just make sure to follow all the directions that come with the product you are using. Keep in mind that it may take a few tries before you perfect the color.

If you still do not feel comfortable doing it yourself, there are many salons that offer such a service. Do not be embarrassed. You are not alone. Have fun with color, and just remember to follow directions and be creative!
