Finally, Elisha swears by using a dry brush for preventing ingrown hairs. After waxing for years and becoming celebrated as The Best in Los Angeles with her salon Get Waxed in Venice Beach, her clients benefitted greatly post wax when they dry brushed their skin. Why? The bristle pokes that pore, teasing it and creating movement and an opening for the hair to stand upright as opposed to lying flat.
