    My beauty therapist initially told me every day then I was getting more so she told me to try every 3 days which has worked wonders apparently some people can over exfoliate.. I was one of them ha

    I dig with whatever I have on hand. I rarely get them but they're usually around my bikini line when I do.

    Ugh, horrible things.
    I dig at them...but it's become a terrible habit. I've been doing it for about 10 years, and have horrible spots all over my legs from it. I mean ALL over. I'm trying to break the habit, but it's really hard.

    I use nail clippers and clip right across the top of it, just cutting open enough to use tweezers to get it out. There's no digging and I've so far never left any scars or marks as I don't cut in to deep, just enough to find that pesky hair.

    What should you do? Exfoliate 24 hours after waxing, and then every few days after that (depending on what product you're using) and use products to avoid ingrowns (different depending on area).

    What do I actually do? Scratch it, then pluck out the hair.

    I think I saw in another thread you're a beauty therapist? Do you love ingrowns? The girl who does all my waxing gets so excited over my underarms haha I have weird little creases in them that are prone to ingrowns and she loves getting them out, gets so excited when she finds one haha

    Not so much. They just get in my way and make my job harder. lol. I usually just keep on advising clients how to avoid them in order to get the best out of their wax and hope they follow my advice.

    I'm more excited about getting never-been-waxed brows and being able to let loose on them... that's my "OMG YES!" moment.
