Luckily, at our last photoshoot Team LC researched an all-natural ingrown hair treatment that is easy to make and gentle on the skin. And it smells divine, too.
Without further ado, here is a DIY concoction to prevent ingrown hairs…
You will need:
- 3 tablespoons coconut oil
- 7 drops lavender oil
- 12 drops tea tree oil
- Mix all ingredients in a small jar or bottle (preferably one that can be sealed off so you can use your mixture later).
- Apply a small amount to affected area after shaving, waxing, or any hair removal and rub in until it begins to absorb.
- Watch your ingrown hairs disappear!
This treatment works because the coconut oil is anti-fungal and anti-bacterial, yet moisturizing at the same time. The tea tree oil has major healing properties that can be used to fight infections, clear up acne, and reduce redness or irritation. The lavender oil has a soothing, calming effect on the skin. And the mixture of all three smells wonderful.
I hope you enjoy this ingrown hair treatment. Tell me if it works for you in the comments below!
