If you have an ingrown hair, it’s a double whammy. Not only are they painful, but they look bad as well. If there was a way to avoid ingrown hair, would you? There is a way to avoid them, with laser hair removal.
Ingrown hairs usually occur if you have curly or coarse hair. Technically speaking, an ingrown hair is a hair that has grown back into your skin. When this happens it can cause an inflammation in that spot. It typically happens after you shave, wax or tweeze. While an ingrown hair is usually not a problem, they can cause complications.
There are many things you can do to help avoid ingrown hair. Using the proper razor and shaving cream are two steps you can take to achieve a ‘good’ shave. Exfoliating or dry brushing the area before shaving is helpful as well because ingrown hairs can be caused by a buildup of dead skin that is clogging your hair follicles. After shaving you can apply an aftershave cream to add extra moisture to your skin and keep your pores unclogged.
