I use a product that has salicylic acid almost every day. It works really well to prevent ingrown hairs.

It never really occurred to me to do so.

Woah! I was not thinking acid! That makes me nervous . . .

But I shave regularly and have recently starting exfoliating to prevent ingrowns too. I just use shower gel and a rough bristled scrubby brush, like the kind that comes with a pedicure kit, and give my lady parts a little extra attention. Since I started the ingrowns have begun to vanish and are almost completely nonexistent.

I'm immensely baffled by all of the ingrown hair talk around here. I've been shaving for 16 years and have yet to get an actual ingrown hair anywhere. No red bumps, either.

And @Teeny salicylic acid is the active ingredient in aspirin, it's not what you think it is. It's also a portion of the ingredients in every facial cleanser from here to the moon.

No, I won't exfoliate my pubic region. The idea of ground apricot between the clitoral hood and clit does not sound like a good time to me.

I only exfoliate my face. It's irritating enough having the exfoliating beads end up in my nose or mouth, I don't think I'd want to get them in any more sensitive places.

I never thought about it, but the more I think about it, the more I might try.

Jealous! Ingrown hair is the worst, mine is so bad that I'd never consider shaving again.

I'd worry about exfoliating, scents and chemicals can be really bad for your special parts.

Yes I do it and it really helps with the ingrown hair problem. I only exfoliate on the outside though, not on the inside! (That seems like it would be pretty painful!)

Maybe it helps with ingrown hairs but I shave with conditioner so I dont deal with them anyways

It is a very painful thing for a guy, specially if he had just shaved.

I never thought about it. I use a loofah but no products specifically.

I think it depends on what kind of hair you have. Curly and kinky hair tends to ingrow more easily, because it "corkscrews" when it comes out of the follicle. Then it can grow back into the hole. Also, more course hair is likely to become ingrown. I've had terrible problems in with ingrown hairs on my legs and my pubic regions. I find the more I shave, the less it irritates me, and I use hydrocortisone when I get bumps.



I don't exfoliate. I have to shave much too frequently (like every other day) to stay smooth to have any time to be able to grow enough of a layer of skin to be able to do that.



I wash everything with a net puff. That is about it for exfoliating.

I use the same scrub soap I use for the rest of my body and one of those net puffs. The detachable showerhead makes it easy to rinse all the soap off.

I wash really well with a cloth, but exfoliating? Nooo. My bits there are really sensitive when it comes to a lot of products, I would fear inviting an allergic reaction of some kind.

I use the same exfoliator that I use on my face and right after I wax or shave I use a salicylic + lactic acid gel.

Actually it's quite invigorating and a good way to prevent ingrown hairs if you shave. Obviously you have to be careful not to over do it - I'm not into pain in any way - so I'm careful.

Same here. I exfoliate using a salicylic acid scrub everywhere I shave.

Yup. I use a small loofah pad and it seems to cut down on my ingrown hairs dramatically.

Exfoliation does not strictly mean 'facial scrubber stuff'; it means 'using rough material to loosen dead skin'. A netted sponge, loofah, Buf-Puf, exfoliating mitt/washcloth - all do the same thing without using chemicals. Just don't forget to thoroughly rinse afterwards.

I have, but I tend to exfoliate with my sugar scrubs. Sugar + Vagina = unpleasant mess. If I found something I liked thought I would definitely try it out.

seems a little harsh for the vag.I sometimes use a salicylic acid apricot scrub on my arms and legs, where I shave, but Its too scratchy for my fresh shaved vag. The salicylic acid tho is good tho.

I think it would be interesting to try, just to be able to have super smooth skin without waxing. I shave and it doesn't get too bad, but I'm open for trying new things.

Now I have never waxed either so if that above comment doesn't make sense it's because IDK what the hell I'm talking about. lol
