Women (and to a much lesser degree, men) have been taking full advantage of “landscaping” duties to clean up their pubic area for decades now – with a full shaven, completely waxed, and just about as bald as you were born look becoming absolutely overwhelmingly popular in just the last 15 or even 20 years.
And while there are certainly big benefits to making sure that you always look presentable just a bit south of the equator, it can be more than a little bit of hard work – especially when you need to keep up with daily and routine maintenance.
At the exact same time, the last thing that you want to deal with would have to be ingrown hairs in your pubic area. Not only will it completely ruin the “aesthetic” of a cleanly shaven pubic area, but it’s also going to cause a tremendous amount of itchiness, embarrassment, and even some awkward moments when you decide to “show off your handiwork”.
Obviously, you’re going to need to do absolutely everything you can to eliminate ingrown hairs from having the chance to establish themselves in the first place – and nothing is better for eliminating that problem then properly and effectively removing the hair down below. And while we will certainly touch on some of those methodologies that you can improve upon in the information included in this short guide, where also going to go over some remedies that you may have not thought of in the past.
How do ingrown hairs establish themselves in the first place
Before we can begin to effectively eliminate in grown hairs on your pubic area, it’s critical that we outline exactly how ingrown hairs are created and how they establish themselves on said area – and what you can do to mitigate those instances.
Ingrown hairs are basically hairs that have begun to grow out of the human body – and then begin to grow right back in again, and are more frequently caused by shaving, waxing, tweezing, and most any other hair removal solution.
That there are a couple of other things that can cause ingrown hairs to establish themselves, including wearing incredibly tight underwear that fits snug right up against the body, wearing ridiculously tight jeans or pants, having overly dry skin, or even just naturally producing coarse and curly hair that has a tremendous amount of stiffness to it.
Noticing whether or not you have ingrown hairs in the first place
The second thing that you really going to want to do is determine whether or not you are dealing with an ingrown hair situation, or something else entirely. There are a number of medical conditions (and even a handful of sexually transmitted diseases) that can closely resemble and mimic ingrown hairs and their symptoms – issues that will require a completely different approach to eliminating and in just the information provided below.
You’re going to be specifically looking for:
- Hair that is clearly growing out of your skin as well as into your skin (creating what looks like a “hair arch”)
- A bump that feels very itchy, looks very irritated, and can quickly become infected
- Swollen bumps that are painful to the touch and difficult to deal with on a regular and routine basis
These are just some of the symptoms that may present themselves when you are dealing with an ingrown hair on your pubic region, though certainly not the full and complete list of giveaway symptoms.
How to effectively treat ingrown hairs with all natural solutions
There are a number of different effective all-natural solutions that you can leverage to get rid of ingrown hairs on your pubic region, and we are going to outline some of the very best below.
But before we dive headfirst into the world of curing this condition, it’s vital that you understand how important it is to seek out highly trained medical assistance if you are dealing with an infected or sensitive ingrown hair. These problems can fester for some time, and become a monster that is a lot more difficult to treat as time goes on. Jumping out ahead of time and treating it when it’s first establishing itself is going to be much easier in the short and long term.
Warm compresses can be applied directly to the ingrown hair surface for at least 30 minutes to 45 minutes, relaxing the generalized area and allowing you to use tweezers to remove the ingrown hair. You’ll want to apply an antiseptic to the area afterwards, but you should be able to remove most ingrown hairs with this methodology.
Instead of using mechanical means to remove hair, consider using hair removal lotions or creams. Not all people can use these comical solutions to getting rid of the hair on our pubic region – some people have more sensitive hair than others – but if you are able to use these products it is definitely encouraged. An ounce of prevention is always worth a pound of cure.
