Ingrown hairs - they’re annoying. If you’ve waxed any area of your body you’ve probably had the joy of experiencing at least one in your lifetime.
Anyway, all hairs are designed to grow out, SO sometimes when we pull them out forcibly or even just shave them down to a sharp little stump (often to just below the epidermis) getting an ingrown or two is just part of the process of having them grow back in.
You see, an ingrown hair is basically just a hair that gets stuck growing on the way out…then it becomes ‘in growing.’ Which yes, feels and looks as weird as it sounds.
However, they can be prevented (*cough via laser hair removal or IPL cough*) although if you do still like to wax let’s delve a little deeper into the world of ingrown hairs below.
