Q: I suffer from a lot of ingrown hair (also called razor bumps), especially on my neck area of my beard. What can I do to stop getting ingrown hairs?
A: Firstly, stop using an alcohol based aftershave product. These alcohol based products will only worsen the problem by drying the skin giving you more pain. You can try using an Alum-based aftershave like RazoRock or a non-alcohol-based balm. Secondly, stop using the mainstream multi-blade cartridge razors. These multi-blade cartridges are actually designed to lift hair and cut below the skin level to give you a closer shave; this will create a tendency for the hair to get trapped in the follicle and dig inward and sideways. It’s best to use a single-blade safety razor, not only will these razors give you a more comfortable and truer shave (once you get past the 2-3 week learning curve) but the blades cost $0.10-0.20 each versus $2-4 for the average multi-blade cartridges. At the beginning, you will only want to shave with the grain; it will not give you the closest shave of your life, but your face will thank you for it. Lastly, I suggest you switch from the ‘goo-can’ shaving creams to a good quality shaving brush combined with a good quality cream or soap. Using the brush will exfoliate and moisten the skin more effectively before the shave giving the skin a gentle scrub and dislodging the tips of ingrown hair; it will also eliminate dead skin cells and clear follicles to allow hairs to surface unimpeded.
