Ingrown hairs are when the hair curves or grows sideways in the skin and are common when you have coarse or curly hair. The hairs cannot penetrate the hair follicle and then they curve in the skin. Ingrown hairs are common in everybody and can be found anywhere on the body. They are however more common in areas that are shaved, waxed or even tight clothing. Not exfoliating regularly is also a common factor that cases ingrown hairs because they dead skin is not properly removed and this prevents the hairs from penetrating the hair follicles.
Ingrown hairs will appear as bumps on the skin and will be red and also sometimes a bit sensitive.
