Why do I get ingrown hairs?
Ingrown hairs are literally hairs that, instead of growing out away from the skin, curl around and grow back into the skin. They typically cause small, red bumps that look like tiny pimples. Occasionally, they can develop into larger, infected sores, although this is relatively rare. Ingrown hairs can cause itching, especially if you have several clustered together.
Ingrown hairs are most common in areas that are regularly shaved—the chin and neck on men, and the legs, bikini, and armpits on women. This is because they are most often caused by sharp-edged, newly cut hairs that pierce the skin. Naturally curly, coarse hair is the most likely to become ingrown. Another common cause is clogged follicles, which can force the hair to grow sideways underneath the skin rather than protruding out.
Ingrown hairs usually go away when you exfoliate problem areas on daily basis. Never pick at an ingrown hair, which can lead to scarring, lasting pigmentation, or infection. If you are itchy and uncomfortable, try a cool water compress immediately after shaving. Ideally, choose to remove unwanted hair with professional waxing treatment rather than shaving. If you do shave, exfoliate daily, and use a thick, lubricating shaving cream or gel.
