About Shaving Bumps
Shaving Bumps, also referred to as ingrown hairs, pseudofolliculitis barbae or pfb, plague over 10 million African American men in the USA and over 300 million men of color worldwide. Shaving bumps, including the very difficult to treat back-of-the-head/neck bumps, represent a very significant issue for men of color. Some have seen limitations in their careers as well as major social set-backs due to their inability to get smooth shaves. Many have reluctantly given up shaving altogether.
Shaving Bumps and ingrown hairs also plague over 100 million men and women from other ethnic groups worldwide. For men the face is red, irritated and covered with bumps. In women there are bumps, and also redness in the bikini line area, legs, underarms and face.
BREEJ Technologies disagrees with the widely held view that Shaving Bumps are caused by “in-grown” 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.
BREEJ postulates that “Shaving Bumps are Primarily caused by Trauma from Shaving, 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, 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]”
To get smooth, bump-free shaves, first resolve existing bumps and ingrown hairs, followed by proper cleansing, lubrication, shaving, soothing and conditioning of the shaved area.

SHAVING DO’s and DON’T’s
DO RESOLVE EXISTING SHAVING BUMPS & INGROWN HAIRS
Proper Shaving requires Bump-free skin and as such you should Never shave over existing bumps
Shaving over existing bumps will only worsen the condition including damage to the Skin
You must first resolve existing bumps prior to resumption of shaving or getting a hair cut
FACIAL BUMPS AND INGROWN HAIRS
DON’T use tweezers or any other tool to pull out “ingrown/entrapped hairs
This will only cause additional inflammation plus damage to the skin as well as skin darkening [post-inflammatory hyper pigmentation]
DO use the recommended products as directed to resolve existing bumps and all entrapped or ingrown hairs will be freed so you can resume normal shaving
BACK OF HEAD BUMPS
DON’T shave or have a Barber shave the sensitive Back of the Head/Neck area [below the hairline] with any type of razor
DO use [or have the Barber use] a Clipper or Trimmer to shave the sensitive Back of the Head/Neck area [below the hairline]
Do use MULTI-BLADE RAZORS as they cause minimal irritation
MULTI-BLADE RAZORS are also best for African American Men [more prone to additional inflammation due to higher Melanin content
MULTI-BLADE RAZORS are also best for new shavers or shavers using razors for the first time [as they are easier to use and cause minimal irritation]
NEVER USE SINGLE RAZORS to shave your face as they cause significant irritation resulting in shaving bumps
