Hello everyone,

Because I ride, I'm shaving my legs at least once a week and always exfoliate with exfoliating gloves and a moisturizing body wash but I still get ingrowns and I've heard that many strippers swear by using deodorant (NOT anti-perspirant) on their legs and pubic area to prevent ingrowns so I was wondering:

A) How effective is this?

B) What is the ingredient in deodorant that keeps ingrown hairs from forming?

C) What brand name deodorant works the best for this? The exact company name and brand would really help.

Thank you girls for helping out a frustrated cyclist. wink

Salicylic acid is an ingredient in Tend Skin and other products that help ingrown hairs, so perhaps if you use a deodorant with this ingredient, it could help. Tom's deodorant comes to mind, but I haven't researched other deodorants that have salicylic acid
