Tips to prevent ingrown hair
Updated: Nov 15, 2022
Ingrown hair occurs when hair that has been removed starts to grow back and curves into the skin, and may cause tiny, swollen bumps on the skin that may be painful or itchy.
Hair structure and direction of growth play a role in ingrown hair. A curved hair follicle, which produces tightly curled hair, is believed to encourage the hair to re-enter the skin once the hair is cut and starts to grow back.
Shaving creates a sharp edge on hair, making it easier to pierce the skin. Hair removal methods like sugaring, tweezing or waxing can also cause ingrown hair.
Here are some tips to prevent ingrown hair:
Use Gel to Milk Scrub to exfoliate the skin, renew, and help remove dead skin cells, dirt, and grime.
Before shaving, wet your skin with warm water
Apply a layer of Shaving Oil to soften the hair and prep the skin.
Use a sharp, single-blade razor
Shave in the direction of hair growth.
Rinse the blade after each stroke.
Rinse your skin with Cleansing & Moisturising Oil
Apply Lip Balm to soothe and moisturize the skin.
