African-American skin care is unique and one that requires specialized care and training. Black skin presents its own issue called Pseudofoliculitis barbae, which is often referred to as “ Razor bumps” or “ Ingrown hair.”

Approximately 80% of African-American men suffer from razor bumps on a daily basis. Ingrown hairs or razor bumps are a result of shaving.

Etiology of Pseudofolliculitis barbae ( ingrown hairs) appears post shaving. The hairs that were just cut by the razor are only removed above the surface of the skin leaving the follicles under the skin to curl and burrow underneath the skin. The hairs are coarse and the ends are sharp which explain the irritated bumpy appearance.

Symptoms and signs of ingrown hairs: the ingrown hairs itch, burn and in many cases cause scarring and make shaving almost and impossible task.

Black skin care is unique, it presents its own issues, and its own good thing too! Black men for example suffer two of the most well known issues with black skin. I'm talking about "Razor bumps" and "Ingrown hair", both of them related.

Pseudofolliculitis barbae, also called by its common name "razor bumps" present on faces who have coarse, wiry or curly hair, like... You guess black men! Did you know that around 85% of men have to deal with razor bumps everyday? Yes and this number increases everyday.

Do women suffer from “ ingrown hairs”?

More and more African-American women present with the appearance of razor bumps because of an over production of hormones which causes excessive hair growth ( hirutism).

Are there solutions to help with “ ingrown hairs”?

Absolutely! Laser hair reduction treatments permanently reduce and/or destroy hair growth. The great news is that the FDA has cleared a laser technology by the name of CoolGlide which is the only laser technology approved to treat men and women of Indian and African-American ancestry without causing discoloration to skin’s pigment.

CoolGlide is the only laser technology approved to treat White, Hispanic, Oriental, Mediterranean, Indian or African-American skin.

In the meantime, some home remedies are:

1. Be sure to use a clean blade at all times. If you have a bad case of razor bumps we recommend that you use a new double bladed after each use. If you use an electric shaver, replace the rotary blades accordingly.

2. Shave following the direction of the hair growth.

3. Avoid skin irritation by eating well. Foods that contain lots of fat, oil, cholesterol or sodium make your skin prone to damage.
