Ingrown hair treatments that work

Ingrown hairs are caused by a lack of natural exfoliation in the skin. When you pull the hair out by the root, a new, thinner hair tries to pop out. The cells in the follicle will build up if your skin does not exfoliate itself. That creates a barrier so the new skin curls up instead of being able to poke through.
Prevent ingrown hairs
To prevent ingrown hairs from starting before waxing, sugaring or shaving, follow these rules:
⇒Don’t wear tight panties, pants or leggings for the next few days.
⇒Keep hands away from touching freshly waxed skin, which can encourage irritation or small pimples.
⇒Opt for a shower. Don’t take a hot bath or hot tub for the rest of the day.
⇒No tanning beds, saunas or steam rooms for the next two days.
⇒Short-term abstinence. Sexual activity should be avoided for at least 24 – 48 hours.
⇒Use a specialized moisturizer daily
