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.

Beauty Day Sunday FAIL: Coconut Milk Deep Conditioner

Hair Porn! My camera captured my texture beautifully!

I started my wash day a little later in the day yesterday due to my thrifting trip.

I began my routine by:

Pre-Poo’ing: I sectioned my hair and to each section, I sprayed water and oiled my scalp and strands while lightly finger detangling. I covered my head with a plastic bag and tee shirt, then let my hair marinate for an hour.
