Shave.: In general waxing tends to create more ingrown hairs, because you're pulling the hairs out by their roots. Shave, but use a single-blade or electric razor, not the fancy multi-blade models. You won't get as close a shave, but that's the idea; ingrown hairs occur when hair shafts are shaved below the skin line, allowing them to grow inward instead of back out of the skin. ...Read more

I have boils on the outside inner leg by my vagina. Or in grown hairs, don't really know how to get rid of them?

It's difficult: If it's recurring boils, you probably are carrying a bad bacteria on the skin. This area is especially prone. Don't shave. You could try an antibacterial wash only a couple times / week (every day is too much - the bugs just get resistant to the wash!) & keepthe skin well moisturized, but also try to wear loose-fitting clothes to keep dry. Surgery to remove the chronic infection works best. ...Read more
