Q: What do I do if I get an ingrown hair?
A: If you can almost get the hair but it is trapped under a layer of dead skin, exfoliate until it comes out, moisturizing after EVERY exfoliation. If the area is inflamed, raised, and/or hurts, use a hot compress on the area, gently knead the bump to break up fluids. Do NOT squeeze or force the fluid or hair out. Repeat compress until bump clears up, use witch hazel and Bush Balm after every hot compress effort.
