haha its ok! i get this too.  my solution is to get a washcloth with very very warm water, dab at it for a while (loosen the hairs) and then tweeze it out.  It will hurt like a mother, just warning you Laughing  perhaps someone has a better suggestion?

I use Secret Deodorant thats called Smooth Effects. Its sposed to make it easier to shave and reduce ingrown hairs.  I don’t have that problem, but I have noticed that its much easier to shave my pits – even when I have to do it with just the razor and no water or anything!  Maybe you could try that and see if it helps

Grow out your arm pit hair and wax, you might still get ingrowns but eventually they won’t happen, I get really bad ones but for some reason waxing helps

Exfoliate, exfoliate, exfoliate! =) My bikini waxer gave me this stuff called folisan that you can order off the internet. Basically, you would apply it with a cotton ball to your pits once a day. She also told me to use a body scrub to help remove some of those pesky ingrowns. I hope this helps!

I use Dove deoderant that came out a few years ago. They advertised it heavily for its ability to soften the underarm and help prevent ingrown hairs. I used to have some ingrown hairs, have used this deoderant for about two years, and don’t have any anymore. Or will get one VERY rarely.

I believe the fragrance I have now is called “Radiant Silk”, very helpful and i would strongly suggest using it!!
