Shaving for a black man can be a pain in the butt. Some black man have to deal with razor bumps, a condition called Pseudofolliculitis barbae.
Here are some steps to beat the bumps:
- Don’t go out and buy that NEW razor you just seen on TV. More then likely it is not made for us colored people. I recommend using andis electric clippers but hey if you are hard headed you need a razor that will not cut so closely to your face. Use a single edge razor like this one Bump Fighter Mens Disposable Razors Mens – 4 per packs.
- IF you use a razor shave in the direction your hair is growing.
- Make it a habit to continue to shave to prevent your hair from curling back into your skin.
Use a razor bump treatment of your choice. I prefer Bump Patrol Original Formula After Shave Intensive Treatment, 4 Ounceit works wonders. You will start seeing the bumps clear up in 3 days tops.
