The professional guide to treating ingrown hairs

Ingrown hairs occur when a hair becomes trapped under the skin and continues to grow there instead of growing outward. Also, in people with curly or frizzy hair, the hair can grow above the skin's surface and curl inward to grow back into the skin. But how to avoid that?
The professional guide to treating ingrown hairs

Shaving increases the likelihood of ingrown hairs forming. Hair in the bikini area in particular often has a tortuous growth pattern and can become trapped under the skin as it grows back. Pressure from underwear or other tight clothing makes this area particularly prone to ingrown hairs. 

Proper skin care before and after shaving is important to prevent the formation of ingrown hairs. The most important step in preparing for a shave is exfoliation, which helps prevent hair from being pinched and bumps from forming. 

After shaving and after every shower, the skin should be moisturized, because dry skin promotes the development of ingrown hairs. Should it happen that a hair has grown in, you can gently uncover it with Evolution tweezers and pluck it out. Afterwards, it is highly recommended to disinfect the area.
