Ingrown hairs can be very annoying and embarrassing. Many of us have had to with ingrown hairs on some parts of our body, and they can be a pain to get rid of, so prevention is the way to go. Ingrown hairs happen when the hair curls and grow back into the skin, just underneath the surface. These annoying little things usually appear as a swollen spot.

Here are 5 ways you could get rid of your ingrown hairs –

 

Laser hair removal treatment

Having a laser hair removal treatment will reduce the ingrown hairs as the treatment uses laser light pulses to destroy hair follicles. If you are dealing with hairs growing in areas you rather they don’t and ingrown hairs, you should consider having this treatment done. I have had 6 sessions of laser hair removal treatment and it is so worth it.

 

Exfoliate regularly

You should aim to exfoliate at least once a week. This will get rid of dead skin, excess oil and stop the skin from clogging. Dead skin cells clog the skin and this clogging can force hairs to grown sideways, which will lead to ingrown hairs. So exfoliating regularly will stop this from happening, as there won’t be a build up of dead skin cells.

 

Don’t squeeze

If you do find yourself dealing with ingrown hairs, make sure you don’t feel tempted to squeeze. That would only make it worse and it could lead to a bacteria infection. The best thing to do with ingrown hairs when you have them is to leave them alone. They usually disappear within a few days if left alone.

Use a hair removal cream

Using a hair removal cream can help prevent ingrown hairs. Shaving tends to trigger ingrown hairs the most when compared with other hair removal processes because the hair grows back with a sharper edge and easy to grow back into the skin when you shave.

 

Take care of your skin

Taking care of your skin prevents many skin problems including ingrown hairs. Using the right cleanser, makeup remover, body wash, moisturiser, and so on, helps your skin stay healthy. You should pay special attention to your skin after shaving, threading, waxing or after a hair removal treatment as usually the treated area is always sensitive after the hair removal process.

 

These are a few ways of dealing with ingrown hairs. They are best avoided but sometimes you may find a couple regardless of how careful you are. The only way to completely avoid ingrown hairs is to let the hairs be. Don’t shave, laser off, wax or thread. This isn’t possible for many of us to do, which is why we have to pick the best way to get rid of unwanted hairs and reduce the chances of dealing with ingrown hairs.

Stella McCartney POP Eau de Parfum is a bold and unique scent with a lovely fragrance. I love the top, heart and base notes. The fragrance suits my personality and it is great for the current season. Here are my pros and cons of this perfume –

 

PROS
  1. I love the packaging. The POP bottle is so pretty. The design stands out from the rest of the perfume bottles around.
  2. The fragrance is long-lasting. It stays on for about 6/7 hours, which is nice.
  3. I like the fragrance a lot. It is not too overpowering and it smells fresh.

 

CONS
  1. I like my perfumes lasting all day, so the fact that this stays on for about 6/7 hours is a bit disappointing.
  2. The bottle has a lid that also wants as a spray and it is a bit tricky to use. I would have preferred if the lid was removable with a regular spray. Those are usually better.

How I moisturise my natural hair

*Affiliate links.

I transitioned from texturised hair to natural hair about 5 years ago, and I have no regrets. My hair is strong and healthy, and I love how it looks. When I had texturised hair, my hair was horrible. I had no edges and my hair was breaking a lot. It was so weak and unhealthy, and I couldn’t stand the sight of it anymore. I was tired on hiding it underneath hair extensions that only made my hair condition worse, so I decided to embark on the long road to freedom – natural hair route.

 

Cantu Hair Care Product Image

 

The journey has been long and hard but so worth it. It took me a long time to figure out hair products that worked great for my coarse hair. I tried all sorts of products and I am still trying new products regularly. In my search of trying out new products, I came across the amazing Naissance Fractionated Coconut Oil, Cantu Shea Butter for Natural Hair Leave in Conditioning Cream and some great Sheamoisture Hair Care products. I use SheaMoisture Shampoo, Conditioner and Hair Masquwe every 2 weeks and these products help create the right foundation for the rest of my hair care products. 

Before stumbling on these products, I have used lots of shampoos, conditioners, masques, oils and leave in conditioners. But my current hair care products mentioned above are the best for my hair type. They are so good for natural hair protective hairstyles too!

You can watch me in the video use Naissance Fractionated Coconut Oil and  Cantu Shea Butter for Natural Hair Leave in Conditioning Cream. These products help me moisturise my natural hair beautifully, making it soft and manageable. They also help my hair grow and stay healthy. I can’t see myself ever not using this oil and leave in conditioner. They are the best hair products I have tried in a long time. Do watch the video and tell me what you think of these haircare products and how I moisturise my natural hair.  You can follow my YouTube Channel for more updates.
