Lifestyle and home remedies

By Mayo Clinic Staff

To release ingrown hairs, you can:

  • Wash the affected area using a washcloth or soft-bristled toothbrush, using a circular motion, for several minutes before shaving and at bedtime
  • Use a sterile needle, inserting it under hair loops, to gently lift hair tips that are embedded in your skin
