What Causes Ingrowns? #4 Thick, Coarse, Curly or Dense

People with thick, coarse, curly, or dense hair often face the biggest battle with ingrowns. Being in this category myself, I can attest this is true.

These hair types are deeply rooted and can put up a fight during removal. Even with great skin, it's still a struggle. They break more easily, making them prone to becoming ingrowns. Curly hairs like to turn back toward the skin and can even find old follicles to re-enter. I’ve seen three hairs from one follicle!

For waxing these hair types, take smaller sections to maintain control and keep the skin taut. Always apply wax in the direction of hair growth and remove against it.

Don't let these hair types scare you—they just need a little extra TLC and attention.
