2. Use Extra Hot Water: Never use extremely hot water when you are in the shower. Use lukewarm water no matter how cold it is. Hot water can dry out your skin and make it more susceptible to ingrown hair because hot water opens up your pores.

3. Shave Without Scrubbing: Shaving without using a scrub first can make it even more easier for ingrown hair to happen. So, always scrub before you shave. This is a thing you must remember.
