Steps to Get Rid of Razor Bumps, Hair Bumps, & Ingrown Hairs from Shaving

Updated on July 13, 2007

Shaving can be a great experience, who doesn't like a clean face, even bikini line, or perfect tape up? However, for many individuals, specifically those of African American and African-Caribbean descent, shaving is a dreaded experience because it often leads to the development of razor bumps. Razor bumps come in a variety of forms, from red, to white, brown, or yellow, yet the pain of them is the same for everyone. Razor, bikini, or neck bumps should not be ignored. They are your body's inflammatory response to bacteria growth or infection. But, if you are growing to manage them, you have to be relentless.

How to Eliminate Your Razor Bumps Fast- Step #1: Cleanse Your Skin Before and After Shaving: Yes, many of us wait until the last few minutes to shave or get a hair cut, having to rush out the door quickly. But, this has harsh consequences; specifically it breeds a ground for bacterial cultivation and skin inflammation.

How to Eliminate Your Hair Bumps Fast- Step #2: Wash your targeted area before shaving with an all natural anti-bacterial cleanser. This will open the hair follicles and remove trapped dirt, bacteria, oils, and debris. An all natural cleanser is best, as many hair bump solutions can irritate or precipitate hair bumps more due to their inclusion of proven skin irritants, such Propylene Glycol and Parabens. The best all natural hair bump eliminating product on the market is Beauty 4 Ashes HBD Hair Bump Destroying System. It contains a hair bump destroying solution and hair bump eliminating cleanser. Beauty 4 Ashes HBD Hair Bump Destroying System, includes a great anti-bacteria bump wash that is made from tea tree, Aloe Vera, Coconut, and so many other natural hair bump destroying ingredients that I cannot list them all. For best results you should use their tea tree wash before you shave to gently lift bacteria away from your face and to prepare the skin for shaving. You can find it at wwwdiscoverb4acom.

How to Eliminate Your Ingrown Hairs Fast- Step #3: Use Proper Shaving Techniques: Many people develop razor bumps or ingrown hairs because the shave their heads or body against their hair's natural growth pattern. This causes the hair, when growing back in, to grow improperly, creating a clogged hair follicle. Always shave in the direction your hair grows.

How to Eliminate Your Bikini Bumps and Hair Bumps Fast- Step #4: Shave with Clean Utensils: You must use clean hair care utensils, not only when you shave, but also when you style and groom your hair. Wash you hair combs, picks, and brushes at least three times a week. Wipe them in alcohol. Do this also to your shaving utensils before and after shaving.

How to Eliminate Your Razor Bumps Fast- Step #5: Make sure your barber uses clean barbering clippers: Ask your barber before he cuts your hair to clean his or her clippers with Barbicide. Most stylists should not squirm about doing this. If they do, I would not go to their establishment. Unfortunately, unsanitary barber clippers contribute to more than 75% of African American males' encounters with neck, razor, and hair bumps. Your "tight tape up" is not worth the lifelong headache of controlling barber rash or ingrown hairs.

How to Eliminate Your Hair Bumps Fast- Step #6: Apply a hair bump eliminating lotion or serum DAILY, at minimum three times a day. If you have hair bumps, you must consistently apply a hair bump solution to keep them at bay. Apply it as much as necessary so that you don't give bacteria any time to grow or give bumps any chances to appear. Depending on your severity of your bumps, it may take awhile for your bumps to become manageable, but consistency is key.

Look for all natural hair bump solutions. While there are several hair bump solutions on the market that make the skin "tingle" or cause dead skin to shed, most of these products contain alcohol, synthetic preservatives, and toxic agents that are FDA recognized skin irritants, known to aggravate hair bumps. Good all natural hair bump products are best to fight your hair bumps, as they can help the skin naturally learn to build immunity to bacteria that cause hair bumps. Good all natural products will contain at minimum Tea Tree, White Willow Bark (the natural form of salicylic acid), Neem, and some form of Aloe Vera. Make sure the product contains essential oils, not just extracts. Extracts are not as powerful as essential oils. Essential oils actually have the capability to eat away bacteria, regulate sebum production, and remove dead skin cells. Again, I recommend using Beauty 4 Ashes HBD hair bump destroying system, because it contains everything that I listed above and more.wwwdiscoverb4acom.

How to Eliminate Your Hair Bumps Fast- Step #7: Cleanse your scalp using an all natural shampoo if you have neck hair bumps. Unfortunately, many of your existing personal care products may only aggravate your neck bumps, especially shampoos containing sulfates, parabens, and alcohols. Try to make your own natural shampoo. Here's a recipe. Take 1 cup of brewed Chamomile Tea and mix it with ¼ cup of Lemon Juice, 1 teaspoon of baking soda, and borax, a natural soap detergent. No, this shampoo will not suds, but it will effectively help your bumps. You can also use Beauty 4 Ashes HBD Tea Tree Cleanser, which is apart of the system as hair bump destroying neck shampoo.
