A hair which does not properly emerge from the follicle remaining embedded in the skin. The site of the ingrown hair may become inflamed or develop a bump or series of bumps. Ingrown hairs may occur anywhere on the head or the body and can become worse due to shaving.
Daily Hair Tip
Whenever possible limit or avoid using a brush on curly tresses. Instead use a widetooth pick or comb with "hair friendly" edges that won't rip or tear fragile curls.
