How to prevent ingrown hairsNothing spoils the look of smooth, freshly waxed skin more than the appearance of ingrown hair.

Ingrown hair occurs when the pore through which a new hair is growing is sealed with a layer of dead skin, trapping the hair beneath the skin surface. You may notice the trap hair beneath the skin (particularly if you have dark hair) or even redness or bumps forming*.

The best way to prevent ingrown hair: exfoliate!

Regular exfoliation (once or twice a week) will help reduce the build up of dead skin and minimise the occurrence of those pesky ingrown hairs. You may choose a loofah, body scrub or, for extra convenience, Nad’s 2-in-1 Exfoliating Wax Strips.

World first Nad’s 2-in-1 Exfoliating Wax Strips is an exfoliator on the outside and a wax strip on the inside, so now it’s easier that ever to exfoliate before you wax. To keep the skin smooth and free from ingrown hair between waxes, use the coarse outer surface of the Exfoliating Wax Strips to buff the skin at lease once a week.

The best way to treat ingrown hair

If an ingrown hair has formed, gentle exfoliation will help release the trapped hair. If the area has become red and irritated, a topical solution like Nad’s Ingrow Solution with Salicylic Acid will loosen the build up dead skin to allow the new hair to grow through. Ingrow Solution also includes Aloe Vera and Chamomile to soothe irritation and reduce the appearance of redness. Ingrow Solution is also available in a special treatment formula for men with Witch Hazel and Aloe Vera to soothe irritations associated with shaving.

*Ingrown hair should not be confused with folliculitis, an infection of the hair follicle. If you suspect you have an infection, seek medical advice.
