Why Are There Bumps on Scalp After Head Shaving?
Much like other parts of the body, shaving your head can result in bumps (which are sometimes red and itchy) that no one wants. These razor bumps can be a nuisance, and for some – genuinely irritating. Therefore, when shaving their heads, there are a few steps men can take to decrease the occurrence of such bumps and their effects.
These bumps appear because of ingrown hairs that go up to the scalp, but get trapped beneath the top, visible layer of the skin. Because they get trapped, the hairs create tiny bumps on the head. This can irritate the skin, which is why some experience increased itchiness or even minor cuts (following another shave on the bumps).
How to Prevent These Bumps on Scalp After Shaving
This does not need to happen after shave. At HeadBlade we have created a shaving system to care for your scalp. Before starting to shave, make sure to trim the hair down as much as possible. Then use HeadBlade exfoliating cream, HeadShed that will help smoothen the skin. The cream will help remove any dirt or oil in the pores and improve the shave. It is best to use the HeadShed exfoliating cream while taking a shower, which will also help the sensitive skin as the warm water will open up the pores.
Then, apply our high-quality mentholated shaving cream, HeadSlick to help the razor with the shave. For the actual shaving, it is very important to shave in the direction of hair growth; this provides major relief for razor bumps. Furthermore, once you finish the shave, use ClearHead which helps prevent ingrown hairs and eradicates the ones you do have and make sure to moisturize the scalp using HeadLube and keep hydrated.
All of the above tips can help decrease the sight of red bumps on scalp and any feelings of irritation associated with them. Remember, a shaved head requires a routine of cleansing, moisturization, hydration, and sun protection. HeadBlade provides a range of scrubs, lotions, and bump treatment products to ensure the proper maintenance of a shaved head.
