I'd like to include us curly haired, Welsh to the ethnic portion of this article about ingrown hair. The pulling function of multi-blade razors and trimmers on curly hair, causes pores to obstruct the natural growth from the follicle.

Razor shaving caused my ingrown hairs.

Ingrown hairs are caused when you use too much pressure when shaving. A manual razor will pull and cut hair from a wrong angle. So as it tries to grow back, it gets blocked thus developing into ingrown hairs. I found a wet and dry electric shaver and when I tried it I didn't get any more ingrown hairs.

They say that women usually don't get ingrown hairs on the face but I'm one of the women that do. I usually shave but I turned to plucking because it stayed gone longer. I enjoyed 3 months of not having to shave every day, but then all of a sudden I started getting these little tiny bumps being both sore and itchy and now has pus. Now I wish I had a mask I can wear for a month so that I can let the hair grow out long enough to shave again.
