So, I have black and white chest hairs. The white chest hairs are different from the black chest hairs in a few ways. First, they aren't as coarse and seem to be thinner and softer than the black chest hairs. Second, the white chest hairs are frequently ingrown. Today, I decided to scrape tweezers across my chest as my skin in certain areas seemed rougher and was slightly bumpy. When I did this, I discovered that white chest hairs...hundreds...started emerging from underneath my skin. Third, when I pluck the white hairs that are creating bumps they are much more difficult to pull out and seem almost anchored in my skin compared to normal hairs.
Why do the white chest hairs frequently remain ingrown?
More importantly: How do I prevent this and/or get them out of my skin if I do have them?
