To think that finding an ingrown hair is just awesome.

And so, so satisfying.

Not the sporny type that gets all swollen and pusy(sp?). I just mean when you think "that's a bit raised", and then out comes this centimetre long curled up hair grin

I just found one under my arm.

Yesterday I found one on my ankle, which was even better, as more unexpected.

It's been a good few days.

I'm not alone, am I?

(and yes, I should exfoliate more).

You are not alone grin

I once had a spot at the side of my nose and I squeezed it and a hair came out.

That was amazing.

Have you visited Sporner Corner, op?

AyeAmarok Sun 09-Apr-17 14:58:29

I knew there'd be more of us. grin

I've actually sold myself short; it's like a centimetre and a half.

Sometimes, once it's out, I like to hold as close to the non-root end of it as possible with the tweezers and marvel at it for a few minutes.

My ex used to get perfect little spirals he'd let me pick out. DH doesn't get them at all. Clearly I married the wrong man.

Sometimes I get a great pube, but never legs, alas.

Sorry, dodgy internet!

I have, Oh, but that's the more extreme scenarios. Sometimes just the beautiful simplicity of a non-infected ingrown hair is good too grin

I had a really painful spot on my neck for ages. The hair that came out of it eventually was about two inches long and very, very thick. Marvellous it were, bloody marvellous.

......I'm salivating as I imagine it.....

This has made me think I should visit Sporner Corner again. Love that stuff.

Only had this once on my leg after a wax, but it was quite satisfying.

I regularly get them on my legs and bikini line. But the best one was on my shin this morning sat outside looked down and I saw a lump so gave it a squeeze and out popped this massive white lump so I pulled at it, it just kept coming then the hair started it was around an inch long! It was fantastic frantically scouring my legs for another one

I am not sure whether to vom at this thread or PMSL! grin

I feel quite left out because I have never experienced this. (A hair/spot type scenario.) However, I do find it hugely pleasurable squeezing a spot.

Does this mean I can still join in the club? grin

Yanbu. DH had an awesome one on his neck once. The hair that came out was soooo long <wistful sigh>

CaoNiMartacus Sun 09-Apr-17 16:31:13

Hell yeah. Highlight of my week day when I find one.

ClopySow Sun 09-Apr-17 16:35:00

I used to have a brazilian wax every 6 weeks or so. I got some brilliant ingrown hairs after that.

Nocabbageinmyeye Sun 09-Apr-17 16:35:29

Oh I am a picker!! Ingrown hairs, spots, blackheads, love them all!! I had a spot about fifteen years about that was so satisfying I actually think back on it as if it were a fond memory

ShoesHaveSouls Sun 09-Apr-17 16:40:23

God yeah - it is amazing. I get them on the bikini line sometimes - all curled up under the skin. There's nothing so satisfying as getting the tweezers to them...

olderthanyouthink Sun 09-Apr-17 16:44:37

YANBU, the feeling while pulling it out to see how long it's going to be is amazing

WineCheeseSleep Sun 09-Apr-17 16:53:56

YANBU I think this is the main reason I shave! I wish I got more.

Spaghettihead1 Sun 09-Apr-17 16:55:50

YA Definitely NBU.
I love a good spot squeeze/ingrown hairs etc.
I've spent many an hour watching Dr Pimple Popper clips.
I don't know how or why but it really makes my mouth water!

magicstar1 Sun 09-Apr-17 16:55:57

I always bring up the memory of the one on my was over two inches long and I could feel it being pulled out from deep within my leg.

WillowKnicks Sun 09-Apr-17 16:58:46


I have my legs & bikini line waxed & get quite a few & i feel very very cheated when they're are none to be had. I once decided to share this secret pleasure with my daughter, funnily she didn't seem that impressed!! confusedshock
