Ingrown Hairs

Thursday, 25 February 2010

ingrown hairsIngrown hairs aka Psuedofolliculitis Barbae (PFB), hair bumps, shaving bumps, razor bumps, razor burn and ingrowns are unsightly and painful. Ingrown hairs is the problem of people who do the epilation at home. A range of home remedies that help to remove the unwanted hair is too limited. Wax, razor, cream, electrical epilator is what we can rely on. We know well that the mechanic depilating affects the structure of hair.

As a rule, hair grows thicker and rougher. It is the result of shaving when the hair gets trapped inside the follicle or grows back into the skin. Household remedies we use for depilating are good to use, though they are not strong and effective enough to remove the hair with the hair bulb, and they remove just the part of hair that grows on the surface. In the shortest time the hair grows too tough and it finds too hard to grow through the skin which is the real cause for the inborn hair.  It is evidently seen with dry skin. If you do the epilation process properly, you may avoid these troubles, and the most important thing is that you have to use the special remedies to remove hair fully.

How dangerous is the ingrown hair

Ingrown hair is not a disease though this may cause troubles. The black dots of the ingrown hair will be visual on the skin that may cause irritation and serious inflammation. Moreover, the ingrown hair may let rot. If you take independent actions to remove the ingrown hair with the tweezers or a needle it may have the infection come into the follicles which can result in pigment spots of brown color in places where the ingrown hair was.

Psuedofolliculitis should be removed without injuring the skin. It is impossible to do at home, thus you'd better seek for the help of the cosmetologist.

Alternative epilating procedures

Hair depilating is the ordinary regular procedure for most women and some men who cannot refuse from this procedure. Though, you should stop using means that bring to ingrown hair.  

The alternative depilating procedures are better to use, since there is a wide variety of them.  Let's consider photoepilation. The procedure is based upon the exposure of the hair bulb to the light. Alternating light destroys the hair roots which prevent the hair to grow into the skin. And the hair on the surface of the skin dies within several days. This is because the hair cannot grow withoutroots. This procedure is not instantaneous. And it is impossible to remove hair for longer period within a single procedure. 3 to 5 weeks are required to remove all unwanted hair on your problematic areas. After you have this procedure applied on you, you may forget about unwanted hair for longer time, and it stops growing with many people for some reasons. Photo depilation is not recommended for people freshly tanned, pregnant women and those who breastfeed, people who have tumors or skin inflammations. After the procedure, the skin required tender loving care.

The other more propagated technique is bio-epilation. This is when wax is used to remove unwanted hair. This technique is popular from the times of Ancient Edypt. This procedure is good to work separately and in concert with the other depilating methods, like to compliment the photo epilation. Waxing removes hair with the bulb which prevents it from growing inside the skin. When waxing, be sure to pull the hair out by the roots. Do not allow the hair to break below the skin surface. Waxing is not comfortable to do at home removing hair from all problem zones, to avoid irritation and breaking hair, while the professionals in the salons are able to do the waxing procedure quickly and effectively. Waxing make you forget about epilating procedure for 2 - 4 weeks.

Prevention means

Not everyone can afford having salon procedures when it is needed. Unfortunately, some procedures are too costly, the others have contraindications to something and you cannot have them done for you. And sometimes a woman has to do epilation by herself. And razor is far more preferred here than the electric epilator.

Some experts recommend that the area that needs to be epilated should be exfoliated first to remove some of the dead skin cells in the top layer of skin cells that often help to trap the hairs.

Exfoliating procedure may be done with creams, body gels or lotions, to some extent abrasive washcloth or special exfoliation glove. After you need to apply the means that prevent hairs to grow inside, soothe the follicles and moisturize the skin.

Spread some gel or mousse before you start shaving. A common hair conditioner is also good to use instead of the shaving gel since it perfectly evens the skin surface, soothes it makes it comfortable for the razor to slide well. The skin should be well-moisturized, otherwise it will get irritated. Shave towards the hair growth, not backward. If you shave backward the hair growth, you risk having more ingrown hairs than ever. Do not worry that the shaving in this way does not remove the upper hair fully. If your razor is sharp enough, your skin will quickly get even and smooth. Apply after shaving moisturizers and disinfectants to avoid infections to come into the follicles that cause irritation, in its turn.

You are not recommended to shave every day, especially if you have dry and sensitive skin. If you shave once a week, it may be safe for you.

Inborn hair may appear spontaneously even when you are sure to do the home depilation by the adopted rules. If you have the procedures done in the salon, you may avoid having such a trouble. And you are likely to enjoy a smooth and even skin if you decide to take turns visiting salons and having the depilating procedures at home.
