    What are Ingrown Hairs?

    Ingrown hairs occur when hair grows back into the skin instead of rising up from it. This can cause inflammation, pain, and tiny bumps on the skin. 

    What are Razor Bumps?

    Razor bumps, also known as pseudofolliculitis barbae, are small, irritated bumps on the skin that develop after shaving. They are caused by hairs curling back into the skin and growing inward.

    Why Do Ingrown Hairs and Razor Bumps Occur?

    These issues typically occur due to improper shaving techniques, using dull blades, or shaving too closely. Curly or coarse hair is also more prone to growing back into the skin.

    How Can I Prevent Ingrown Hairs and Razor Bumps?

    • Proper Shaving Technique: Always shave in the direction of hair growth.

    • Use a Sharp Blade: A dull blade can tug at the hair, causing irritation.

    • Using a Double-Edge Safety Razor: We’re emphatic about the virtues of single blade shaving, which is proven to cause less irritation than multi-blade razors.

    • Prepare Your Skin: Wash and exfoliate your skin before shaving to remove dead skin cells and reduce the risk of hairs growing back into the skin.

    • Avoid Tight Clothing: Wear loose-fitting clothes to prevent friction that can irritate the skin and cause hairs to grow inward.

    Curly and coarse hair types are more likely to encounter ingrown hair: ensure adequate preparation and mindful technique, shaving after a shower and utilising effective pre-shave and shaving cream products.

    How Should I Treat Ingrown Hairs and Razor Bumps?

    In addition to gentle physical exfoliation, and warm showers that help the hair to rise to the surface, we endorse topical treatments that contain a powerful blend of acids and other chemical exfoliants to unearth the hair while soothing razor bumps. This is much less invasive than using a needle or tweezers. We also suggest allowing broken skin to heal - avoiding shaving in the meantime.
