I don't seem to have a problem with ingrown hairs on my legs, but I do get them around my bikini line sometimes. There are tons of creams out there that claim to help, though I've never tried any. I find the best way to handle them is prevention. Always exfoliate after you shave so that the hairs have a clear path out as they grow back. I find that this works better than any other crazy methods and is the easiest. Let me know if you find anything else that does a good job!

I agree with michelef, exfoliating is the best way

I find that waxing instead of shaving really helps

Also if you do get an ingrown hair, don't try to pop it or scratch as it, as that will increase the risk of infection. An infected ingrown hair is no fun at all.

Hi blubie and another great topic. I find that if I see an ingrown hair, if I look really close, I can see the hair inside the bump. It may sound gross, but the couple of times I've had them, I removed them myself. I just used the tweezers or nail clippers and pulled it out. The best idea is to exfoliate. I shave with a hair conditioner because it actually makes the hair stand up, therefore giving me a closer shave. Hope that helps. Take care of yourself, Ginger. ( If they are the little bumps, then they are called something else, I can't think of the word. It's very common to get them in hot weather. Just Google it and see what comes up.)
