Barbae (PFB) is the "acne-like" breakout commonly referred to
as "razor bumps" or "shaving bumps". As
naturally curly hairs begin to grow back after shaving, waxing or plucking, they get
trapped inside the follicle, resulting in irritation and swelling. The
results - inflammation in the hair follicle. Anyone can get shaving bumps, but they're more common in people with
curly hair. The pictures below represent the
severity of PFB.
Most skin care products
that claim to "cure" PFB and ingrown hairs have acid, alcohol and other chemicals
to exfoliate the skin
(not to mention your hands if you don't wash them thoroughly!). While
this may work short term, it is actually compounding the problem by
drying and hardening the skin.

straighten the hair to resist natural curl for the next day's growth
Therapy work below
skin level to straighten and strengthen the hair so that it comes out of the follicle
straight and at the same time they are working to soften the skin, which
has been a "barrier" to the trapped hairs. We know of no
skin care products that cure Pseudofolliculitis, including our own.
