How to Use Amazing Natural Remedies to Get Rid of Ingrown hairs.
Ingrown hairs also called razor bumps. We all hate them and would love to get rid of them. Ingrown hairs are little red lumps that are swollen around the hair follicle. These lumps happen when your hair decides it doesn’t want to completely come out of the skin. These lumps normally form in areas guys and girls shave in. For example, ladies normally get them on their legs, bikini area, and armpits. While guys normally get them around their beard area. Although you can get ingrown hairs by plucking and waxing, another main cause would be people who are known to have very tight curled hair. Here are some natural remedies for getting rid of ingrown hairs.
Baking Soda

Baking soda has anti-inflammatory properties. So mix one tablespoon of baking soda and one cup of water. Then apply the mixture onto the skin and leave on there for about five minutes. Do this at least twice a day to reduce redness and causes the ingrown hair to leave. Not only does this get rid of ingrown hairs but it cleans your pores and gently exfoliates.
Tea Tree Oil

Tea tree oil not only gets rid of ingrown hairs but it also eases the pain while you still have it. This oil is known for having antiseptic properties that help speed up the healing time. It also has antibacterial properties that help with possible infections. To use this oil make sure you always dilute it before putting directly on your skin. You can use oils such as olive oil or coconut oil. Just mix the oil and the tea tree together, then apply to skin. Be sure to rinse this mixture off within 10-15 minutes.

Green Tea
Green tea can also get rid of ingrown hairs. Just soak the tea bag in hot water for about five minutes. Then rub it over the affected area for a few minutes. Do this several times a day until the ingrown hair goes away. Green tea is also known to have antioxidants,
so you would be helping your skin out in the long run.
Aloe Vera
Aloe Vera is another great way to get rid of razor bumps and ingrown hairs. It does this by getting rid of inflammation, moisturizing the skin, healing the bump way faster. It’s great for damaged skin and improving your skin overall. Just apply aloe vera gel onto your skin. You have the choice to leave it on or to rinse it off. I personally like to leave it on. Apply to your skin 2-3 times a day for greater effect.
Apple Cider Vinegar 
Apple Cider Vinegar is an antiseptic that reduces inflammation and heals razor bumps. Rub diluted apple cider vinegar to the affected area and leave on for 10 minutes. Then rinse with warm water. Repeat this process a couple times a day.
Natural Scrub

Grab your favorite scrub, salt or sugar and use it on the infected area. Using the scrub, it exfoliates your skin by removing dead skin cells, allowing the hair to grow out of the skin.Learn More: DIY: Brown Sugar Body Scrub.

Warm compress
A warm compress gets rid of ingrown hairs by softening the skin, allowing the hair to come through the skin. Just run the washcloth under hot water (Be careful not to burn skin) and apply to skin for about 10-15 minutes. In a couple of days, you should begin to see the hair coming through the skin, at this time you can remove the hair with sterilized tweezers.
Dry Brushing (Personal Tip)

For me, I have never really seen where it has said that dry brushing helped with ingrown hairs. Ever since I have been dry brushing I have seen a lot less ingrown hairs. I just simply dry brush before my shower then rinse off with apple cider vinegar.Learn More: Amazing Dry Brushing Benefits for Stunning Skin
