Shave with the grain if you are using a razor.  If you are using a rotary electric try switching to a foil electric.  Rub the area after you shave with your hands to straighten the hairs.  If you don't have acne using an aftershave will do a better job standing up the hairs.  Don't rub the crap out of the area just do a pass or two with your hand to dislodge any bent or stuck follicles.  I tend to rub perpendicular to the grain but not sure if that is norm.  I would imagine rubbing with the grain wouldn't do too much.

I used a pretty old razor a few months ago, shaved in all the wrong ways... was very rough.. zero ingrown hairs or irritation.


Every attempt since then I've been so careful.. prepped my skin.. had a nice blade... ingrown hairs every single time.


I'm forced to use an electric.


The ingrown hairs are always on my neck by the way.

You don't need a reason to help people.

Anthony Ingrown Hair Treatment is what I use.  I still get them but they are much less frequent and they clear up much quicker.
