What are ingrown hairs?
Those small red bumps that keep turning up after you shave? Those are ingrown hairs. They happen when hair curls back on itself as it grows, re-entering (or sometimes never exiting) the skin.
What causes ingrown hairs?
Here’s the deal: everyone gets ingrown hairs. Sometimes it’s a one-off, or just nature’s way of telling you that you’re destined for Gandalf levels of beardedness. More often, razor bumps are caused by (being honest here) bad shaving and neglect. That’s why ingrown hair prevention starts with rethinking your facial maintenance routine.
