I like being hairy. But maybe I'll like being a little less hairy.

. I shaved my nether regions two days ago and now it itches in that prickly "hair is growing and stabbing me" kind of way.
What can I do to prevent/mitigate this itching. Aside from, "shave every other morning." Throwaway email and other details follow.

Ladies, (and back door shaving gents) do you use a mirror for that? Cause I just did the best I could without looking at the area in question, but I'd be willing to get a hand mirror if it would...help.
Shaving cream? Some special private shaving unguent? I'm not excited about the idea of spending money on an elixer, but maybe my finances will change, and then it would help to know if there is something awesome out there to get my hands on, rather than trying everything.
I'm fairly flexible, can get my leg up in the air, and obviously have no trouble reaching all the parts in question. I shaved it in the tub, got out, dried myself off, and didn't think about it again until this morning.
Any anecdotes about private parts hair removal are welcome. Waxing? Horror stories? Congratulations? Pep talks?
throwaway email (cause I'm polite like that) is firstname.lastname@example.org.
(PS, I'm not dating anyone, nobody asked me to do this, and I didn't take it all off. Just in case you care. Don't feel obliged to get all het up on my behalf. If the itching can't be remedied, I won't keep this up. Also, I'm aware that small cuts from shaving increase risk of STD transmission, I'm not having sex these days.)
