Ingrown hair - these are hairs that could notsprout through the skin and, bending in the opposite direction, began to grow towards the follicle. Ingrown hairs can appear on the face, arms, legs - on any part of the body where the hair grows. As a rule, ingrown hairs are accompanied by only a slight irritation, but can also cause a painful feeling; and the skin with ingrown hairs looks not very aesthetically. In addition, if the problem is not resolved, the inflamed skin can become seriously infected. Growth occurs most often in people with curly hair. But if you often do hair removal or shave your hair (for example, on the legs), then you greatly increase the risk of ingrown hairs. The fact is that the hair follicle becomes weaker with their frequent removal, and the hairs become thinner. Thin and weak hair is much harder to break through the upper layers of the skin, and it begins to grow in the opposite direction. What to do? After all, we can not refuse depilation? Of course not!
