I can't stand it when after I've just shaved my legs and they still feel prickly... Please Help me?

I used to use the the venus razor, but now I just switched to the Schick Quattro for woman and I feel that it gives me a much closer shave but still like i said... I can't stand the prickly feeling after I've just spent my time shaving as close as possible. I don't get it...lol. Please help me if you can. Thank you :)

Update:

I wait till the end of my shower, and when i get out i out baby oil on them.

Update 2:

I've used nair before, and yeah it does smell bad. It didn't seem to work for me, but maybe i wasn't doing it right.

Update 3:

Hey everyone. For the most part all your answers were the same... So all your tips helped. I tried doing it in a nice hot bath, used a nice salt scrub first and then put my aloe shaving cream on. Tried the non fancy BIC, and also used my Schick. And after i got out I put baby oil on.

I was very pleased with how smooth they felt.

Thank you everyone! :)

    Have you considered having your legs varnished?

    Use hot water, it pushes the hairs a bit farther out of the skin. Also, make sure you have a good, clean razor when you shave. A clogged blade is often to blame for not getting a close enough shave. There are also some creams and shaving gels (I don't know the names of any, sorry) that actually help block hair growth for an extra day or two somehow. Like I said, not really sure and haven't tried any. Also, take your time when shaving, don't make it a rush job. That only causes you to miss spots and never gives you a close enough shave.

    i only have been given mine waxed final night. waxing final longer for a pair of month collectively as shaving lasts basically each week or 2. and particular you do get bumps from shaving. and after some days when you shave, it turns into prickly and intensely thick. it does harm yet once you get it executed with the help of somebody who's stable at it, it would not harm all that lots. and that i'm 13 too and the day only before this grow to be the 1st time soo i propose you to wax. and its basically approximately sixteen funds a month so i'm hoping i helped.

    Like everyone said, make sure your shower is very steamy, so make shaving one of the last things you do. Shave with plenty of cream, making sure to rinse of your razor after every few swipes. Then right after toweling off use a good moisterizer. It's very important. If you still get prickly you may be allergic to your shaving foam, and should try one for sensitive skin. Good luck!

    I dont know how you do it, but make sure that you are really warm, wet and steamy before you shave. Do it last in your shower. The skin softens and the pores open, and you get a much better shave. use a good moisturizing shaving cream and a really sharp blade. Discard the blade after about 4-5 uses.

    Either you are not shaving against the grain with a sharp razor ad properly prepared skin/hair or you may have to use a hair remover (but they smell funny). There are also epiladies (those mega tweezers things) and of course professional hair removal with lasers and such.

    That is because you have some hair to short for the razor to get.

    Let the hair grow for three months, go have it waxed off. It will last for a long time.

    I like the intution razor. I am also too cheap to wax so I use Nair. It smells not so great but it works and its cheap and I can cover up the smell with my lotion. The smell goes away anyway.

    Try using Nair instead. It dissolves the hair under the skin line so there is no rough feel.

    shave up (opposite hair growth) not down, use shave gel with aloe, and a good old fashion none fancy Bic.

    Try the shick intution. It will leave your legs smooth and the hair grows back slower. It cost about 8 bucks, but seriously it is worth it.
