An Ingrown hair is a naturally, or shaved, waxed or tweezed hair that grows back into the skin, causing inflammation. Ingrown hairs are common in persons with curly or coarse hair, but can affect anyone.
The main symptoms are small, solid bumps and small, pus-filled blisters. In the event a person has ingrown hairs, Waxing is the best method of reducing reoccurrence, as opposed to shaving. Shaving causes blunt ends, and generally cause more ingrown hairs. With regular waxing, hair and root is removed from follicle, restarting a new hair growth cycle in sync.
If you have been effected by ingrown hairs you should keep the area clean, dry and exfoliated daily. Contact your Bombshell Waxer, as they can recommended a treatment such as a "Vajacial" (aka a vagina facial ...lol we know...) to cleanse, exfoliate, and remove any debris within the follicle, leaving you smooth and glowing! Additionally, your Waxer may also offer a home care treatment or preventative product. If reaction persists, your physician!
