Are You Loosing The Ingrown Hair Battle ?
It is estimated that between 60 - 80% of African american men, and
20% of Caucasian men are prone to ingrown hairs. Women of all
stripes continue to have this problem also. An ingrown hair is a
painful red bump on the skin. They usually appear anywhere we
shave... and often in clusters. What happens is the hair breaks off
below the skin. It begins to grow at an angle into the side of the
hair follicle ! Now we have an ingrown hair. I grew tired of this
painful distraction.... and the embarrasment it caused me. I'll
tell you the information I've learned... so you can win the ingrown
hair battle... as I have.
Here is a little more info on ingrown hairs and ingrown hair infections.
Ingrown hairs aren't pretty and they aren't pleasant to have. Ingrown hairs are often triggered by shaving. Ingrown hairs are common anywhere there is curly hair. Ingrown hairs are hairs that curve back into the follicle, causing swollen, red bumps known as razor bumps that can be painful and embarrassing. Ingrown hairs are more common in people who shave very closely, because sometimes the hairs retract slightly into the skin after shaving and then cannot find a proper exit as they grow. Ingrown hairs are tender bumps that appear on the skin when closely cut hairs curl back and re-enter the same hair follicle causing inflammation and infection.
Ingrown hairs are extremely common around the pubic area, and are actually caused by shaving, waxing, and depilatory creams. Ingrown hairs are known as Psuedofolliculitis Barbae , razor bumps, razor burn, hair bumps, shaving bumps, ingrowns. Most ingrown hairs are caused from improper shaving. Another cause of ingrown hairs are clothing that is too tight around the neck or legs, commonly shaved areas for men and women respectively. With the rise in Brazilian waxing, ingrown hairs are increasingly present in the pubic area.
Infection can occur if the condition is left unattended to and the rash is exposed to bacteria. Bacteria, yeasts, or fungi infections can further exacerbate the problem, and there are even acne variants of this same condition. Unerring ingrown hairs treatment can be achieved with the use of natural and effective products which defend the dermis from infection after hair removal and sooth, moisturize and regenerate damaged skin. When needed, treatment may include: Topical antiseptics, antibiotics, if an infection is present, and permanent hair removal, in stubborn cases.
Permanent hair removal is always an option if ingrown hairs become a chronic condition. Laser is normally a permanent method of hair removal, although there are no 100% guarantees. Anyway, if you suffer from painful and recurrent ingrown hairs, it’s worth looking into a permanent hair removal procedure. Electrolysis or permanent laser hair removal can also help prevent the problem.
