And can be no match for what these cold winter months can bring with them. Unless, of course, you come prepared to fight a battle your face can truly win.

I've seen men in my chair who are afraid to shave for fear of the ingrowns! Today that worrying STOPS… Because I've got the ultimate guide to ingrown hairs for you: what are ingrown hairs, why we get them and most importantly, how to treat and prevent them from coming back.

Ingrown hairs are the result of the hair growing back into the skin. Why do so many men (and women) suffer with this?

Let me help shed some light on this.  But first, I need to establish that knowing the correct way to shave is the #1 step to reducing ingrown hairs.

So let's begin.

How To Stop Razor Burn For Good!

Razor burn... Just saying the words make me angry! Why? Because it should never happen to me or anyone else.

We should all hate it. The redness, burning, itching, over-sensitivity... these are all symptoms. And the worst part is that these symptoms can lead to more visible frustration, razor bumps!

How you get it and its severity depends on many reasons (will discuss below). But the bottom line is, it ranges from person to person and I promise... if you haven't already experienced it, you don't ever want to!

Here are a few reasons why:

  • Blade/s too dull
  • Too many blades
  • Too many passes/strokes
