Wondering what ingrown hair actually is? Ingrown hair is a very common occurrence where the hair curls back or grows sideways into the skin. If you discover an ingrown hair while you are grooming - stop shaving, tweezing or waxing until things clear up. Any bumps, irritation, pain or other symptoms should be gone before you continue on with hair removal. This could take some time to clear depending on the severity of the ingrown hair. Don’t scratch the affected area as this can lead to bacterial infection and further pain. Carefully exfoliate the area around the ingrown hair using an exfoliating scrub, this should help skin cell turnover and release the trapped hair.
Whether you shave, wax or laser, our Ingrown Hair Lotion is for you! A light, cooling non-greasy lotion to be applied immediately after laser, waxing and hair removal to help prevent bumpy blemishes, pimple-like rashes and ingrown hairs. It keeps your skin calm, smooth and blemish-free, allowing the new hair shaft to grow through without getting "stuck" under blocked follicles.
How to prevent Ingrown Hair?
The best way to prevent ingrown hair is by not removing hair in the first place as this stops new hair from growing along the follicle. However, stopping hair removal altogether is not a viable option for the majority of us. Shaving is more likely to result in ingrown hair so if you must continue hair removal then waxing may be the better alternative as hair takes longer to grow back and often grows finer after waxing. If your ingrown hair becomes infected, then it is best to seek medical advice and only resume hair removal once the issue has been resolved.
