    Question The issue of the ingrown hair!!

    Hi,

    What do you use to prevent / treat ingrown hairs?

    What are the most effective solutions out there?

    I've used Skin Doctors Ingrow Go and Tend Skin, but i could not stand that awful vinegar smell!!

    I'm currently using Nads Ingrown Gel Solution, it works ok, but i still get the odd ones here and there....

    Starting one or two days after waxing, I scrub myself with a loofah when showering. In addition, I use Anthony ingrown hair gel, but I suspect that no product is enough on its own without scrubbing. (Scrubbing works because it opens the pore and frees the hair).

    Most ingrown hair creams/lotions/potions contain salicylic acid which has antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties.
    You can make your own version by crushing 1/2 an aspirin tablet (which contains acetylsalicylic acid) and mixing it with water to form a paste. Cover the ingrown hair, leave for 5 or 10 minutes and then rinse off.
    It's an old shaving trick I picked up.

    I agree with the exfoliation, the lady who waxes me says the same but I've not heard of the aspirin tip... that's great! I'll have to try it next time. Thanks
