I was steadfast in my decision and scoured the net for inspiration for my cut. I was a bit unsure about what the repercussions would be at the office (or if I decided to change jobs), but I reasoned that I would still have enough hair to cover the shaved parts. I would unveil the full extent of the cut gradually. Only three people in the office noticed; my boss noticed about two months after I’d been wearing the cut and two other ladies noticed six months later.
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.
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.
