Hey Sly Guys,
My name is Justin and I recently took the plunge and went sly, about 2 months ago. While I have grown to love my new look, I cannot seem the avoid these razor bumps. I have done tons on research on how to avoid them and take every precaution I have read about. My normal routine would be a hot shower with HeadScrub and I have the option to go with my Merkur 34C or I also use a Braun Series 3 340s when I do not have the time or energy for the process that is DE head shaving. I notice more bumps with my electric shaver as opposed to using a safety razor but they wind up showing up a day or 2 after regardless. This is frustrating because by the time the bumps disappear and I can finally shave again, I have about 5 days growth to get rid of which just creates a revolving door. The only thing I can think of is that when I use the braun I tend to save my problem area for last, (back of my neck) and by that time my razor is rather hot. My post shave routine consists of a cold water rinse, witch hazel, matte for men lotion and bump stopper cream which I swear makes my problem worse. If anyone has any advice it would be greatly appreciated!
