Many people suffer from ingrown hairs. After each shaving or depilation, inflamed spots appear when the hair grows back.


We will explain how to solve this problem of ingrown hairs.

What is an ingrown hair?

An ingrown hair is a hair that does not grow through the dermis. There are several reasons for this:

- The hair has grown in the wrong direction

- The skin is dehydrated and not properly exfoliated. There is therefore an accumulation of dead skin that prevents the hair from penetrating the skin.

Ingrown hairs are more common in people with curly or frizzy hair and usually appear after shaving, waxing or epilating.

Causes of ingrown hairs

Ingrown hairs are usually caused by hair removal.


They can also form if the skin is too thick or if the pores where the hairs come out are blocked. They will then continue to make their way under the skin which will lead to pimples and marks later on.

The type of hair is also a cause, if it is curly or frizzy then it will be more likely not to pierce the skin in order to come out properly.

Clothing that is too tight and causes pressure on the skin can also prevent hair from coming out properly, resulting in ingrown hairs.

Treatment for ingrown hairs

The most effective treatment is the permanent hair removal laser. When shaving in preparation, it is important to shave in the direction of hair growth and not in the opposite direction. It is advisable to disinfect the razor blades before each shave if you have ingrown hairs.

It will take 5 to 8 sessions to destroy the hair permanently. If the hair is destroyed, there will be no more ingrown hairs.
