Why do I get Ingrown hairs/Razor Bumps when I shave?
Ingrown hairs/Razor bumps are caused by improper shaving techniques, tools, and skin care products,. When we shave below the surface, hairs can grow back and become trapped under a thin skin layer, thus causing bumps and irritation. This is more common in multi-racial ethnicities whose curly hair might easily bend instead of growing straight.
