    Hey fellas,
    My sweetie has a bad case of razor bumps on his neckline. He said he got them when he went to a barber who didn't clean his clippers properly. He now cuts his own hair but the bumps are still there. I was wondering if any of you had this problem and what did you use to get rid of them ?

    Razor bumps or ingrown hair is the black man's curse, and the barber really didn't have anything to do with it. I only shave when I have to now, and knock it down in between with a beard trimmer. The trimer leaves a little 5 o'clock shadow. It's the closely cut hair trying to break skin that causes the bumps.

    Well I had some bumps but my barber gave me something for it. To my suprise, it worked. Just a few days ago, I decided to shave with the razor again. (Silly me) I just apply that "stuff" to it. I can hardly see them now. I'll put it like this, in this white world, if you have money, you can have them gone. Just ask a professional barber. See if he give you some "stuff" for it.

    Razor Bumps

    I will talk from my experience. One day after buying a pack of disposable razor blades I decided to read the instructions on the package for shaving. This was something I couldn't ever recall having done. Any way, if I can recall correctly, the instructions said to follow the "grain?" of the hair while shaving. What I quickly notticed while shaving is that I had a downward motion with the blade for my face and an upward shaving motion for my neck.
    Once I started using the downward shaving motion for face and neck my beard bumps ceased to be a problem. (Also, I believe age and skin sensitivity plays a role as well.)

    I would have said use clippers instead of a razor but if he used that and still got them then I don't know.
