7 Tips For Getting Rid Of And Preventing Ingrown Hairs

Ingrown hairs are the worst, aren’t they? Not only are they gross, but they can also be really painful. Unfortunately, ingrown hairs are far too common especially if you wax or shave. They can happen pretty much anywhere on your body, but they’re most likely to happen on your bikini area. An ingrown occurs when a hair curls in on itself and gets trapped under the skin. The hair then continues to grow under your skin, which causes irritation and those gross bumps that look like pimples. Ingrowns suck, but they happen to everyone and luckily are treatable.

I had a really bad battle with ingrown hairs a few years ago after a waxing horror show. My wax technician pulled the wax off in the wrong direction, which made my skin freak out. It was ingrown central, and it took a while for me to get things back in order. But ingrowns continued to be a problem for me after that so I resorted to laser hair removal because I didn’t want to deal with it anymore. If you’re struggling with ingrowns, check out these tips and tricks for getting rid of and preventing them:
