Ingrown hairs are a common condition, especially in people
with curly hair. They can happen to anyone though, both boys and girls, and
they can happen anywhere. So take a deep breath and know that your ingrowns are
100-percent normal and can be taken care of easily.

infections include using an electric razor instead of a manual one, exfoliating
your legs before shaving them and shaving using down strokes instead of
Already got ‘em? The treatment of ingrown hairs is easy.
Step up your exfoliation with a washcloth, loofa or an exfoliating body wash.
Look for products with salicylic acid in them. If the problem worsens, consult
your physician for some additional help.
