Anyone can get ingrown hairs, but they tend to be more of a problem in people with curly or coarse hair. Anything which causes the hair to be broken off unevenly with a sharp tip can cause ingrown hairs. Shaving is the leading cause, followed by waxing and tight clothing.


Ingrown hairs can be itchy and embarrassing, but they often go away on their own without having to do anything. If they do not go away, ingrown hairs can become infected, darken the skin, or leave behind scars, especially if you have scratched or picked the ingrown hairs areas.
