5 Tips to Get Rid of Ingrown Hairs For Good

Have you ever wondered how to get rid of INGROWN HAIRS? How to prevent them? Or what to do if you get one? 

Hair removal methods such as shaving, waxing or tweezing can cause ingrown hairs, and often produce itchy and icky painful red bumps. In some cases, ingrown hairs can be super uncomfortable and even become infected! Instead of squeezing or picking at them, here are some more efficient (and much less painful) ways to help stop them!

1️. EXFOLIATE

Ingrown hairs are commonly caused by dead skin cells. Exfoliate weekly to help remove these cells and reduce the chance of ingrown hairs.

2️. STAY MOISTURIZED

Keeping skin consistently hydrated and moisturized is an extremely important step in achieving hair that behaves well.

3️. DON’T SHAVE WITH A DULL BLADE

Be sure to use a sharp and clean razor to cut off the hair bluntly in one pass and to prevent the razor from catching or dragging hairs.

4️. USE A SHAVING GEL, OIL OR CREAM

There should always be a hydrating barrier between your skin and the blade when shaving to cushion the contact when the razor meets your skin.

5️. SHAVE WITH THE GRAIN

Shave gently with the grain (the direction in which your hair grows) to avoid ingrown hairs, as shaving in the opposite direction can cause the regrowth of the hair to curl back into the skin.
