Increasingly, women are growing more facial hairs and resorting to shaving their faces. As a consequence, women, especially Black women, experience ingrown hairs, neck bumps, and razor bumps. For women, such bumps can be especially unsightly, producing significant scarring and discoloration. Here are a few tips on preventing or reducing your hair bumps and ingrown hairs:

How to Eliminate Black Women's Hair Bumps- Step #1: Stop Using a Razor. Okay, so this is the last thing you wanted to hear. However, the only 100% effective remedy against ingrown hairs and razor bumps is to stop shaving.

How to Eliminate Black Women's Hair Bumps- Step #2:Try to have your face or targeted area waxed to remove unwanted hairs. See a professionally licensed beautician or spa specialist and have him or her wax your face. Make sure you look into whether they have natural waxing procedures, such as beeswax or honey. These are better alternatives for your skin and will reduce your chance for skin discomfort and irritation after the waxing treatment. Also,ask if there is some sort of natural moisturizer and hair bump prevention solution that they will apply following your wax. The application of these two items will reduce skin eruptions, kill bacteria, and soothe your face. If they say they do not offer such items, bring your own. Beauty 4 Ashes makes a wonderful, 100% natural Hair bump solution that can be applied after facial waxes and will reduce existing hair bumps and prevent bikini, chin, and hair bumps in the future. You can order from Beauty 4 Ashes Christian Co's online store wwwdiscoverb4acom. Aloe Vera Gel is also a great natural moisturizer to use following a wax. You can find a quality brand at your local whole foods store or VitaminShoppe.

How to Eliminate Black Women's Hair Bumps- Step #3: Try Wax at home or use a depilatory cream made to remove your specific hair. If you are really savvy, you can do your own waxing. But, I have discovered that this is often a mess. Depilatory creams, although better than shaving, are not a top choice due to their chemical composition. So why even recommend these? Because they are still worthy of consideration.

How to Eliminate Black Women's Hair Bumps- Step #4: Make sure your body is getting the nutrients it needs to fight the bacteria that cause hair bumps. Take Flax Oil to flush your system. Daily take Vitamin C to boost your immune system. This will help.

How to Eliminate Black Women's Hair Bumps- Step #5: If you must shave, be sure to do it right. Improper techniques will only cause more bumps. Thus, you should shave in the same manner your hair grows. Cleanse the area you are about to shave with an anti-bacterial soap, such as Safeguard (synthentic) or Beauty 4 Ashes HBD Cleanser (all natural). There is a formula of Safeguard that actually includes Aloe Vera that may be more helpful. However, it is not as affective as Beauty 4 Ashes HBD Cleanser, which contains essential oil that kill hair bump causing bacteria.

How to Eliminate Black Women's Hair Bumps- Step #6: Clean all your razors with hot water and alcohol before and after use. Discard al razors after being used for one week.

How to Eliminate Black Women's Hair Bumps- Step #7:Do not place heavy makeup on your hair bumps. This will only cause more skin irritation, whether the makeup is noncomedogenic or not.
