How to get rid of the ingrown hair without spending a fortune


Ingrown hair is pretty weird if we’re being honest. It doesn’t act like normal hair and  grow up, it actually curls back in on itself. Sounds gross? It kind of is!  

Thankfully, there are a few things you can do to get rid of it, once and for all.

If you have a lot of dead skin cells clogging up hair follicles, you need to exfoliate the area at least once a week. Dry brushing is great for this.

Ensure your skin is soft and smooth by moisturising daily. This will help hairs to push up through the skin rather than grow back on themselves.

When shaving your legs, don’t shave too closely to the skin, use a sharp blade, go in the direction of your hair growth and don’t do it too frequently.

You are more inclined to get ingrown hair if you wax, so make sure you exfoliate and moisturise straight after.

If the hair is slightly peeking out of the skin, just pluck that bad boy out. Don’t do this if it hasn’t quite managed to break through the skin though.
