Razor Burn, Cuts, & Bumps, Oh MY! | No Bueno

So I’ve been sporting (and loving) faded sides since April and I thought it was appropriate to discuss razor burn, cuts, and bumps; something anyone who shaves anything may have to deal with.  I’ve had to deal with razor burn or bumps while shaving but it never occurred to me that I could experience this around my hairline after a shape up.

What is Razor Burn?

Razor burn is “technically known as Folliculitis, which describes when the hair follicles become infected by a bacteria or fungus. This results in the irritated bumps and pimples that appear around the shaving area” – More at Ask Game Day.

So Fresh & So Clean Combs & Brushes | How To

Combs and brushes are really useful tools in removing not only shed hairs, but also dust, dirt, oils, old product and even dust mites; therefore, cleaning your tools is critical to having a healthy hair regimen.

EWWWW!

Each time you use an unclean hairbrush or comb, you redeposit grease, product, dust and dead skin cells back into your hair. If your hair is cut short or faded in certain areas, the dirt is more apparent as you can plainly see it sitting on top of your strands. Disgusting, right?

Weekend Project: How To Clean a Conch Shell

Conch Shell Before

When I was in the Bahamas, this conch shell was gifted to me by coconutdaddy1 (checkout how he acquires his coconuts). My knowledge of conch was mostly non-existent, except for the fact that here in FL, a lot of people eat variations of conch. I’d never tried it and when I found out conch was a slug, I had no desire to try it.

Upon receiving the shell, I was instructed to take it home and oil it. I waited two weeks to do something and by that time, the outer layer of the shell had hardened. I decided to tackle the project this weekend.
