How to Prevent Ingrown Hair

Learn how to prevent ingrown hairs from Completely Bare owner (and former Real Housewife of New York City) Cindy Barshop in this Howcast video.


The biggest question I always get is how to prevent ingrown hairs or how could I get rid of them?

OK. Preventing it is very difficult, but what we're able to do is slow it down. The biggest thing is an ingrown hair is just a hair follicle that grew backwards and we also have some type of bacteria build-up, so you could get it anywhere on your face or your body, men or women.

What do I do? Exfoliate the area. You could use any type of at home exfoliation. You could use this or you could use the glycolic. And then what you need to do to clean the sebum of the bacteria, you actually need a salicylic. So, you could take those two steps or you could get the Completely Bare product, which is all-in-one. It's on a pad. The other great thing that just came out is the newest product is actually to help with ingrown hairs is to make the hair finer, and the way you do that is this plant extract called [capslow]. That's usually the best way to help get rid of ingrown hairs.
