An ingrown hair often occurs as a result of shaving. The hair is cut with a razor, and as it begins to grow back, it curls inside the hair follicle at a different angle. The hair gets trapped beneath the skin. A common sign of an ingrown hair is a small bump that is red or pink and tender to touch. An ingrown hair will naturally diminish in most cases within one or two weeks.

You can also follow these steps to prevent hair in-growth.

  • Avoid reverse shaving, shaving hair too closely may also increase chances of hair in growth
  • Exfoliate your skin after waxing or shaving
  • Avoid shaving dry skin. Make your skin wet before shaving
  • Massage your skin with good skin cream after waxing or shaving
  • Avoid shaving on one part or area of skin for longer time
  • Use warm water to make your hands and legs wet before shaving or waxing
  • Avoid waxing your hands and legs at shorter intervals to avoid hair in-growth, it leads to hair breakage. Let there be full growth before a waxing appointment
  • Avoid exerting too much of pressure on your skin while removing hair

Hey nice article.
By the way I am a beautiful lock on Hrithik’s head full of gorgeous hair! As I have observed, from my vantage point (of being on top of Hrithik’s head, duh!), a lot of you want glamourous locks…but (sigh, sigh) very few of you manage to look like me. So, I will try to be at my swishiest best and using my enviable position to best advantage, I’ll tell you the secrets of my beauty and of course, I’ll give you a glimpse of what goes on in Hrithik’s world. Follow my hair strands on The Chronicles of Hlock (Hrithik's Hair Lock) . See you there!
