Ingrown Hairs

Stop your ingrown hairs today!

Thick and Curly hair that have been recently shaved or waxed are the most common causes of ingrown hairs.  However, ingrown hairs can appear anywhere on the body.  Tight clothing, broken or uneven, sharp tipped hairs, curly hair that curls back into the pore after shaving can also cause ingrown hairs.  Lastly, stress which can cause high hormone production and excessive production of certain sex hormones can cause excessive oil, cell growth, dead cell accumulation and hair growth. 

Symptoms include:
* Itching
* Rashes
* Irritation
* Inflammation
* Localized pain
* Skin that is tender to the touch
Leading to an infected pore/follicle (folliculitis) or razor bumps (pseudofolliculitis barbae).

Treatments include:
* Pre-treating the skin with a warm washcloth or shaving in the shower – keep pore warm and soft
* Shaving in the direction of your hair growth will prevent ingrown hairs
* Exfoliation
* Shave creams using exfoliating acids
* Non-steroidal ANTI-INFLAMMATORY drugs – Ibuprofen
* After shave topicals that disinfect and soften pores/follicles

Side effects of ingrown hairs include:
* Embarrassment
