Prevent Ingrown Hairs
What are Ingrown Hairs?
Ingrown hairs may occur when the shaved hair grows back into the skin or inside the follicle. Men with darker skin tones are more prone to razor bumps because of they tend to have thicker, curlier facial hair. There are two ways these ingrown hairs, also called razor bumps can occur after shaving:
- Shaving against the grain can trap hair inside the follicle changing the direction of normal hair growth. Your hair grows into the skin rather than through the skin.
- Shaving too closely can lead to the same result - the hair curls back on itself and grows into the skin.
Prevent Ingrown Hairs, Bumps and Razor Rash
There are steps you can take to prevent ingrown hairs, bumps and razor rashes:
- Always wet your face with warm or hot water before shaving to open the pores and soften the hair.
- Always Shave "with the grain" - the direction your grows.
- Use a thick shaving cream to ensure a smoother shave and smoother strokes with a fresh blade.
If you're already playing by these rules but still don't feel your smoothest, start using Bump Down to get rid of ingrown hairs for good!
