How ingrown hairs start is by the sharp tip of the hair growing sideways. An ingrown hair can be very common, but can be most common in sensitive areas or with people who have coarse hair. What causes ingrown hairs? Hair that is cut too close or below the follicular opening.
If you are not shaving properly or you had an aggressive waxing service, that can cause broken hairs or irritation. That’s why we don’t offer fast waxing. The best treatment for ingrown hairs is to wax between 4 to 8 weeks. If you have sensitive skin, push out your services to allow your skin to breathe.
Also, if you are noticing you’re getting ingrown hairs from waxing, come in between 6 to 8 weeks instead. Make sure to have a consistent aftercare routine. We absolutely love using/selling “Fur” and we suggest using this product line to all of our clients.
“Fur” products are highly recommended for anyone who is waxing. The ingredients will keep your hair and skin hydrated and will help with any inflammation without the feeling of irritation. It helps calm and soothe the skin and it’s an all natural product and there is no alcohol in the ingredients, so it will not dry out your skin. You can purchase Fur in our studio. We have multiple products from the line to help you choose which one is best for you. And best of all, a little goes a long way, so it will last you a long time! Lastly, try not to dry brush or use aggressive exfoliation. That can lead to scarring or more irritation or inflammation. Please be sure to use proper products in sensitive areas, don’t use facial products for Brazilian areas or any other waxing areas, it can make your skin worse.
