Ingrown Hairs - How To Avoid Getting Them After Bikini Line Hair Removal

Ingrown hairs are a common problem after bikini line hair removal but these tips will tell you how to avoid this painful problem.

Ingrown hairs are a common side effect of bikini line hair removal and they can be particularly painful when they occur in the bikini area. They usually appear as painful red bumps surrounded by inflamed and tender skin. If you have curly hair, you may be more prone to them. If you don't want your beach-ready bikini line spoiled with these ugly bumps, follow the tips below.

The Best way to shave pubic area without causing ingrown hairs

To avoid ingrown hairs appearing after pubic shaving, don't shave too close or shave the same skin over and over again. If you are prone to ingrown hairs, don't shave against the direction of hair growth during pubic shaving. Always use plenty of shaving foam or gel if you're shaving with a razor. Gently exfoliating before pubic shaving will help get rid of dead skin cells that can trap hairs when they try to re-grow. Exfoliating gloves and creams are widely available. Don't exfoliate if you have ingrown hairs already. Doing so may make them worse.

Bikini line hair removal using wax

If you're bikini waxing at home, try to make sure hair comes out by the roots. If you are particularly prone to ingrown hairs, it might be better to go to a salon or spa. The bikini wax they use is more effective at pulling out hair from the roots.

What to do if you get ingrown hairs

Ingrown hairs along the bikini line will usually work their way out on their own over time. You can help them along the way by holding a hot compress over them a few times a day. Don't wear tight clothing until they have disappeared. Products are available that claim to speed up the healing process of ingrown hairs so ask your pharmacist.
