So, What Causes Ingrown Hairs?
Ever wondered what causes ingrown hairs? Turns out, it can be one thing or a combination of things. We've got the answers—and some great solutions.
You've probably experienced an ingrown hair a time or two—maybe you know them as razor bumps—that pop up in areas where you've recently removed hair.
When a hair is ingrown, it means the sharp point on the end of the hair pierces the surface of your skin and grows down into your skin. instead of away from it like normal.
Ingrown hairs can occur naturally, or they can be caused by poor hair removal techniques. Dead skin cells can also block hair follicles, which can cause a hair to grow sideways instead of up...leading to ingrown hairs. And people with curly or naturally coarse hair are more likely to experience ingrown hairs, as the hair thickness and shape lends itself to growing back toward the skin.
