Back of Head Bumps are Notoriously difficult to resolve and in this write up, I want to bring everyone up to date on the real cause of the difficult to resolve Back of Head Bumps and how to get rid of Back of Head Bumps quickly
What Are Back of Head Bumps And How Are They Caused?
Back of Head Bumps are Primarily caused by the Trauma from Shaving [or hair removal from the back of the neck], resulting in inflammation of the shaved area manifested as “bumps” as the body reacts to the trauma, compounded at times by Bacterial/Fungal Infections. Induction of Melanogenesis by Irritated keratinocytes during shaving [hair removal] produces additional inflammatory mediators exacerbating the condition [this is the main reason why men of color with higher levels of melanin have a higher incidence of shaving bumps]”
The Back of the Head/Neck area is very sensitive to irritation and should never be shaved with razors. It is best to use clippers/trimmers to gently shave this area to minimize irritation.
What Are Ingrown Hairs/Entrapped Hairs and How are they Caused?
Ingrown hairs [more appropriately referred to as entrapped hairs] result when existing shaving bumps [caused by shaving] block the opening of the hair follicles on the skin forcing the normally growing hairs to grow into the existing bumps [blocking the hair follicles] as they try to find a way to exit [hence the name ‘ingrown hairs’].
Shaving Bumps precede ingrown hairs and as such ingrown hairs are Not the cause of shaving bumps.
BREEJ Technologies disagrees with the widely held [and incorrect] view that Shaving Bumps are caused by “ingrown” hairs – wiry, curly hairs that curl and grow back into the skin.” This concept of “in-grown” hairs has led to a lot of poking & probing of the shaved area with tweezers often further aggravating the problem. BREEJ discourages this practice as the additional trauma can lead to infection, hyper pigmentation and significant skin damage.
WHAT IS THE BEST WAY TO GET RID OF BACK OF HEAD BUMPS?
As Back of Head Bumps are Notoriously difficult to resolve, use a Powerful Anti-Bump Product [formulated with powerful anti inflammatories, anti bacterials, anti fungals and skin conditioners] such as:

It is very important to quickly resolve Back of Bead Bumps as the condition will get worse if untreated and could lead to formation of Keloids in Keliod-prone individuals
SHOULD I GET A HAIRCUT IF I HAVE BACK OF HEAD BUMPS?
If there is a lot of hair around the area with the bumps, it is best to gently remove as much hair as possible from the area with the bumps [without irritating the bumps] before using the BUMP TERMINATOR Severe Bumps/Extra Strength Lotion to resolve the Back of Head Bumps.
SHOULD I USE A PRE SHAVE LOTION BEFORE SHAVING THE BACK OF HEAD/NECK AREA?
Yes, it is best to use a good anti bump pre-shave lotion such as the BREEJ Anti Bump Pre-Electric Shave Lotion to cleanse and lubricate the area to be shaved using a clipper/trimmer
HOW SHOULD I GET RID OF DAMAGED/DARKENED SKIN CAUSED BY BACK OF HEAD BUMPS?
Use a good Skin Repair And Brightening Cream Product [formulated with powerful skin repair agents, skin brighteners and skin conditioners to resolve damaged/darkened skin such as the Bump Zapper Skin Repair And Brightening Cream
