Our darker brothers often have a tough time shaving and suffer from extremely painful ingrown hairs that can cause bad infections and even scarring. The coil-like structure of black men’s hair means that hair often doubles back and re-enters the skin, resulting in razor bumps and ingrown hairs. The solution? Exfoliate your skin regularly, especially before shaving. You might have to use a sterilised needle or tweezers to remove the really stubborn ingrown hairs.
