Just How Often Should You Groom?

Just How Often Should You Groom? - BALLS

Timing is key; you wouldn’t want to show up early to a funeral or late to your best mate’s wedding.

It’s summer, it’s hot, and your balls are dripping.

Not in a good way.

Maybe you're wondering if you should plunge into a pool to relive the ball sweat, or better yet, plunge into shaving your balls. We’re putting you on to how to take care of your underground pool (like the rest of us). Before you’re convinced that this is the right move, we will dive into why you should trim, how often you should trim, and our recommendations.

Why Groom Below the Belt?

Have you ever gone back to a girl's place and realized that she has an entire makeup store in her bathroom with every product you could potentially need? You know what I'm talking about, creams, lotions, mists… Just like her, she wants you to take care of yourself too. Sure that means working out and dressing nice, but that also means taking care of your ball hygiene.

Simply put - women prefer men that have trimmed balls. It’s science. If that isn't a good enough reason, here are a few more why you should trim your balls:

Sex Life

When surveyed, nearly 90% of women prefer a man that is somewhat groomed. This interpretation could lead to many things but the bottom line is women expect more. Any woman's initial thought of a pleasant time in the bedroom doesn’t trigger digging through overgrown hair. This is pretty straightforward.


Let’s face it, trimming your pubic hair is for you too. A clean trim is bound to put anyone in a better mood due to the fact that you are cleaner, and sexier. Your mirror agrees.

These personal gains alone are a good enough reason to add a few minutes to your weekly grooming routine and clean yourself up in the bathroom.

Overgrown pubic hair can tend to become nappy and curly. You know, like a bird's nest. Pubic hair can be the home for public lice, or crabs. Typically, crabs are found in areas with coarse hair. Both of these scenarios can definitely classify you as less hygienic compared to the next guy that keeps in clean down there.

How Fast Do Your Pubes Grow?

Truth of the matter is your pubes grow fast. Really fast. Like Tour-de-France fast. Here’s how fast they grow, and how often you should be shaving:


All hair on your body grows in three phases: growth, stagnation, and falling out. Pubic hair follows the same pattern as any other hair on your body. In a typical cycle, the entire three-phase process takes 30-44 days. There are other factors that can influence hair growth rates such as hormones, medication, and low amounts of androgens that can result in hair loss for men.


Timing is key, as they say. Do you want smooth soldiers for the summer months? Or prefer to grow a lion’s mane to rival competitors on the Sahara? 

Whether you're going for baby-bottom balls, a modern trim, or letting your inner wildebeest out, we timed out how often you should trim your balls. Regardless of the frequency, your BALLS™ Trimmer is standing by for the smoothest sack yet.

Oh, and speaking of grooming, have you heard about The Archibald Trimmer?

The newly-released Archibald from BALLS™ features precision blades, ergonomic design and a no-slip grip. It's waterproof and comes with its own carry strap for use on the go. 

Managing your intimate hair - whether it's a quick snip or a full Brazilian - has rarely been this easy. With three colors (Blue, Black, and Mauve) the Archibald fits whatever your style may be. 

If you don't like it, send it back, guaranteed. How sweet is that?


Your pubic hair growth rate can depend on various features, but typically you can count on your hair growing at a rate of ⅛ of an inch per week. That means you’re growing a full inch of pubic hair every two months! 

No matter how fast you’re growing, you probably won’t catch up to Maori Vi in South Africa, with pubes measured at OVER 28 INCHES LONG. The pubic hair was so long it reached her knees…

Trimming Routine Anyone?

The Archibald Trimmers

Any guy that has groomed his balls before knows it's a delicate procedure. Thankfully, we have a time sensitive and pain free routine for you to get the perfect trim. All it takes is a bit of care, attention, and the right tools. Here’s our the ultimate grooming routine:

Set Up

Your setup is key. For starters, we recommend picking a private place (don’t make it weird), preferably your bathroom. Getting into a habit of trimming during your night routine will ensure you have the best trim on the block. Personally, we trim during our nightly shower, using the fully waterproof BALLS™ Trimmer The shower is the ideal place to manscape because it lubricates the skin, stimulates blood flow, and opens the pores. This dynamic trio helps the blade glide across your skin without any nicks, snags, or hospital visits. PRO TIP: trimming in the shower will allow minimal clean up, which makes for a really happy s/o.

Get Comfortable

This is a no brainer, but important. Being relaxed in your bathroom makes all the difference here. Give yourself this opportunity to wind down from your day while grooming: light a candle, listen to something that puts you in a good mood, and find your zen. After a few songs deep in your favorite Spotify playlist, assume a wide stance and get ready to head downstairs.


There’s nothing more important than proper technique when you’re grasping your giblets. Whether you're trimming with ‘The Pulling Technique’ or ‘The Hover Technique’ slow and steady strokes are your friend here.
