At Peach Clinics we frequently see ingrown hair caused by desperate measures our clients have used to keep unwanted hair at bay.
What is ingrown hair?A healthy hair grows straight out from the follicle. If oil, dead skin cells or even a scar blocks part of the follicle, the hair can bend and begin to grow downward eventually becoming completely trapped underneath the skin.
What causes ingrown hair?Ingrown hairs commonly occur where hair is closely shaved, waxed, or frequently plucked. These actions give the hair shaft greater opportunity to become distorted as it attempts to grow especially if it encounters debris left in the follicle by these methods of hair removal. Ingrown hairs are also more common in people with coarse or curly hair.
