What can you put on ingrown hairs?

Ingrown hairs can be an incredible annoyance to both men and women. They always seem to crop up at the wrong time and it can be a nightmare to get rid of them.

We recently compiled a ridiculously detailed ingrown hair survival guide, check out here: The Ultimate Guide To Preventing, Dealing With, And Getting Rid Of Ingrown Hairs

If you’re looking for specific creams that you can put on ingrown hairs either to prevent them or to help get rid of them, keep reading.

There are a number of things you can do to both prevent and stop ingrown hairs from getting worse (exfoliating, using the right hair removal method for your skin etc), but sometimes you need the help of a specially formulated cream to keep the ingrown hairs at bay.

There are 5 of these creams we feel are the best at getting the job done.

Tend Skin Solution

61nXcdxCEBL._SL1500_No matter where you look, you’ll find Tend Skin Solution on any ingrown hair treatment list.

It’s specially designed to prevent and treat ingrown hairs, though it also does the same for razor burn and bumps amazingly well.

Test the solution on a small bit of skin before using it everywhere. Also make sure your skin is DRY.

If after 5 minutes there’s no reaction then you’re safe to use it anywhere.

Fantastic for both men and women as it can be used on the neck, the underarms, the bikini line, legs etc. and a perfect lotion to keep in your routine as something to apply after shaving or waxing.

Its hard to say anything bad about this product as the reviews are stunning, it’s a trusted brand and it can be used by anyone.

If we could give a warning its that you please don’t use it if you are allergic to aspirin or are pregnant, and don’t use it along with other similar products (or it won’t work as well!)

Sally Hansen Zero Bumps


This option comes in a really convenient “no touch” spray bottle, so you can simply spray the lotion on as opposed to having to rub it in.

It’s made of aloe, orange flower extract, soybean extract and witch hazel that gives a fantastic resulting moisture and smoothness. It also smells like a dream.

The Sally Hansen Zero bumps is used best right after shaving/epilating/waxing as a preventative to ingrown hairs and razor burn. The results really are visible in the complete lack of irritation!

Again, we recommend you do a little test before using this regularly to make sure you’re not allergic.


PFB Vanish + Chromabright


What’s great about the PFB Vanish is that it not only deals with ingrown hairs and razor burn, but also dark spots that may appear after an ingrown hair.

Ingrown hair scarring is terrible, so its great to have something that can at least relieve the darkness left on the skin.

It’s quite an aggressive solution so we recommend using exfoliating gloves if you want to rub it in.

The actual solution acts as a kind of exfoliator too, so expect a little skin peeling.

Preventing ingrown hairs and lightening previously incurred scars is amazing to get from one product.

Shobha Ingrown Relief Lotion

51gC3h923LL._SL1000_Unlike some of the other products, the Shobha Ingrown Relief lotion is free from color, parafens and odor. So it won’t smell amazing, but it won’t stink either!

This lotion is made to prevent ingrown hairs and also to fight them when they appear.

It both keeps the skin hydrated and healthy, while removing the upper layers of dead skin that are usually the cause of ingrown hairs.

With a solid 4.5/5 stars on Amazon, and at this price, its one of the best value creams out there.


Princereigns Ingrown Hair Serum

61nl4AdBhZL._SL1500_A little pricier than most, but it costs more for a reason.

This ingrown hair gel is touted by Gisele Bundchen, claiming its what helps her stay smooth on swimsuit photo shoots.

Its made of all natural ingredients: chamomile, sage, vitamin E and lavender so shouldn’t irritate your skin and claims to be able to remove ingrown hairs in 2 days.

What they mean by this is that when a hair gets trapped under the skin (becoming ingrown), this serum will release it so that it can continue to grow and stop causing inflammation.

The consumer feedback for this is pretty strongly positive, with even the negatives having to admit that it works well.

We put this last because of its price, but for amazing results it should certainly be at the top.
