  • I want to try the creme from the chemist.

  • Thanks everyone, I needed an anwer here aswell.

  • there are some good comments here

  • you have to do a hard exfoliation this will avoid this problem

  • thank you for the suggestions!

  • Skin doctors INGROW GO is the best product I have ever used. You can get it from chemists and beauty stores. I have used it for years as I do suffer from ingrown hairs in all areas I shave or wax. Let me know how you go!

  • U need to moisturise and exfoliate

  • getting rid of one hairy problem leads to another, ouch, ask your beautician.

  • Some good advice there below.

  • they used to say to exfoliate before the wax but I agree with the other answers and would ask your beautician

  • Ouch! I’d be asking my beautician for advice

  • Hope the answers below have helped.

  • I’d ask where you are getting it done as they might have some good suggestions

  • i use tweezers sometimes :)

  • I just use pointy tweezers to get them out but it also helps if you exfoliate the area (I use an exfoliating glove) as it helps unclog the top of the hair follicle opening
