It doesn’t matter if you prefer hair, no hair, or a little bit of hair, ingrown hairs can be a bit of a nightmare. Ingrown hairs are usually caused post-shave, when the sharp edge of the hair grows back into the skin, causing red, itchy, spot-like bumps. If ingrown hairs don’t bother you then that’s cool, but if they feel irritated, itchy, or you want rid of them before you slip into your swimwear, then these are the products you need to treat them.

Fur Ingrown Concentrate
From the brand that was created from the need to take care of your hair, Fur, the Ingrown Concentrate has ingrown hairs in mind. Fur create products that hydrate the skin, soften hair and eradicate ingrowns, wherever you fall on the spectrum of bare to full. This all-natural oil has been formulated to banish ingrown hairs for good, clearing bumps, and reducing redness. Use the exfoliating mitt in the shower to gently exfoliate any areas where you experience ingrown hairs, then when you step out of the shower, apply to oil to the skin where you have just exfoliated. The nourishing formula helps to restore the skin, soften new hairs, and prevent any bumps.
Gruum Precision Razor Set
One of the biggest causes of ingrown hairs is your razor quality – blunt, old razors can rust, causing them to drag on the skin, leading to irritation, and bacteria getting into the hair follicles, which can cause angry, painful spots. Having a sharp, fresh razor is the first step to eliminating ingrown hairs, so the gruum Precision Razor Set is a must-have. Each set comes with a razor handle, two five-blade cartridges, and one blade cover, meaning that you’ll be well-stocked for all your shaving needs. The ultra-thin, platinum coated blades reduce dragging and pulling, which in turn results in a clean, comfortable shave without any irritation. How often you change your razor cartridge depends on how often you shave, but if you feel your razor starting to drag on your skin, it’s time for a new one.
Anthony Ingrown Hair Treatment
You can do everything you can to prevent ingrown from forming, but every now and again there will still be a few that slip through the net. That’s where the Anthony Ingrown Hair Treatment comes in. Specially formulated to help treat ingrown hairs after they have formed, this soothing gel gets rid of them, fast. Enriched with glycolic, salicylic, and phytic acids, this gel works by gently sloughing away any dead skin cells that can be trapping the hair into the skin, as well as working to eliminate bacteria. The addition of willowherb and lavender soothe and hydrate, leaving you with soft, calm, and bump-free skin.
Fur Shave Cream
The results are only as good as the tools that you use (or so they say), which is why using a shaving cream, foam, or gel is essential. Shaving without one of these can lead to razor burn, rashes, ingrown hairs, and irritation – all-in-all, something you want to avoid. The Fur Shave Cream is a favourite of ours thanks to it’s ultra-luxurious, whipped texture, which helps to moisturise and soften the skin whilst you shave. The silky soft formula allows you razor to glide across the skin, preventing razor burn and bumps, whilst olive oil, aloe, coconut, and marshmallow leave you with your best skin yet.
UpCircle Beauty Chocolate Charcoal Chai Soap
Cleansing before shaving could help to eliminate ingrown hairs by banishing the bacteria that can get inside the hair follicles. Try a gentle, does-it-all formula like the UpCircle Beauty Chocolate Charcoal Chai Soap, which helps to draw out impurities from the skin, without leaving it feeling stripped or dried out. If you’re shaving down there, just make sure to be careful where you apply the soap and keep it just to the bikini line, as soaps can affect the delicate, natural pH of the vagina.
Fur Ingrown Eliminator Mitts
Perhaps one of the key things to remember when it comes to getting rid of ingrown hairs is exfoliation. Ingrown hairs occur when the sharp edge of the trimmed hair gets stuck under the skin, so exfoliation helps to loosen up and slough away the dead skin cells, allowing the trapped hair to be released. Obviously we’re turning to our hair removal favourites yet again for this – the Fur Ingrown Eliminator Mitts have been specially created to help treat the skin, simultaneously soothing, exfoliating, and protecting for a soft, smooth, post-shave result. Plus they’re gynecologically tested, biodegradable, and vegan, making them safe for you and for the planet.
