After shaving, some hairs don’t grow out of the skin and instead, curl inside the follicle under the skin's surface.


Razor bumps form when a hair that has grown out of the skin curls down and becomes trapped in a nearby follicle.

THE DX SMOOTH 4-STEP RULE TO A GREAT SHAVE

  • Prepare your skin by gently wiping with a moist warm towel or facecloth. Washing with a circular motion can help to dislodge ingrown hairs.
  • Use a lubricating shaving gel or foam to soften the hairs before cutting.
  • Shave using a single blade razor ‘along the grain’, following the direction of hair growth without stretching the skin and rinse the blade after each stroke.
  • If using clippers, ensure these are kept clean to stop risk of infection. Avoid use of harsh products such as spirits, which will cause severe dry skin and irritation.
  • After shaving, apply a gentle, alcohol-free after shave like DX Smooth Bump Shield After Shave or Bump Shield Face Lotion.

OUR EXPERT RECOMMENDS
"It is advisable to use a single blade razor, rather than a multi-blade razor and use the right technique. Alternatively, try clippers set at different levels. You may
get better results if you leave hair one or two millimetres long. To treat iqwele and to improve your skin’s tolerance to shaving, avoid the use of products with high
alcohol content, as these cause dry skin and irritation." Dr Ncoza Dlova, Principal Specialist and Lecturer at the Nelson R Mandela School of Medicine, UKZN

What causes razor bumps and ingrown hairs? - Mandla

The architecture of coarse, curly hair, particularly African hair is the main culprit here. Instead of growing normally out the follicle, the curly nature of the hair encourages it to curl back in on itself. This results in an ingrown hair which can be itchy, swollen and often painful. Razor or shaving bumps occur when the hair emerges normally from the follicle, but embeds itself in the adjacent follicle, collecting dirt, dust and bacteria along with it. The end result, a painful, swollen and frequently infected razor bump that is hard to heal and often leaves scars.

What is the best routine for treating razor bumps and ingrown hairs? - Thobani

A healthy skin is your first defence against any type of skin problem. This starts with cleaning your skin twice daily, exfoliating regularly and keeping your skin well-nourished and hydrated by moisturising daily. Avoid using harsh formulations that promise quick-fix results - the actives often solve one problem but create another. As the "culprit" for this condition is the hair itself, for some individuals, this condition requires ongoing care and maintenance for as long as the hair keep growing.

How can I keep my skin healthy and avoid razor bumps and ingrown hairs? - Nhlakanipho

Ensure you maintain a regular skin care routine with products that treat your particular skin concerns. In the case of razor bumps and ingrown hairs, you need to cleanse and moisturise daily, along with gentle exfoliation. A dedicated exfoliating mask or scrub can also be used 1 or 2 times weekly. For acute conditions, a specialised spot treatment may also be effective. As the "culprit" for this condition is the hair itself, for some individuals, this condition requires ongoing care and maintenance to treat the symptoms and minimise the recurrence - but as long as the hair keep growing, bumps and ingrowns can never be completely prevented.
