6 Ways To Get Rid of Razor Bumps + Scars

Feminine Hygiene

Being an African American woman shaving can be super effing annoying. From the time I started shaving I’ve always suffered from razor bumps and scars…The horror! I used to be super self conscious about my bikini line because I just KNEW nobody else had this problem…WRONG! So many women and men alike suffer from razor bump no matter what area they’re shaving. WTF are razor bumps even? According to Gillette Venus Razor bumps are ingrown hairs caused by cut hair strands that curl back into the skin and grow under the surface, causing red or skin-colored, pimple-like bumps. Why do we even get them? It could be from shaving with a dull razor, shaving against the grain that your hair grows, dryness, skin sensitivity, the list goes on.
