Ingrown hair is a condition where the hair curls back or grows sideways into the skin. It may or may not be accompanied by an infection of the hair follicle (folliculitis) or "razor bumps" (pseudofolliculitis barbae), which vary in size. While ingrown hair most commonly appears in areas where the skin is shaved (beard, legs, pubic region), it can appear anywhere.
An ingrown hair is a hair that curls and penetrates the skin with its tip, causing inflammation. Ingrown hairs are more common among people with very curly hair and African-Americans. Most ingrown hairs occur in the beard area.
I HAVE INGROWN LEG HAIR!!!! ARRGH!!!! MY LEGS NOW HAVE LITTLE BLACK STUBBLES ALL OVER IT!!!
There are patches on my legs where I can feel tiny bumps on my skin, and when observed closely, one can actually see hair growing underneath my skin in a circular direction.
I'm currently using a needle to pick them out.
So much for waxing my legs.
I HATE LEG HAIR!!!! HATE THEM, HATE THEM, HATE THEM!!!!
P.S.: I just came back yesterday from Port Dickson!!! Wow, it really edified me and helped me grow in my Christian life. I really learnt quite a lot there. Met with many of my old friends too!! It was pretty fun.
