Why do I get bumps on my beard?

its just part of the texturing. unless you have REALLY big bumps, in which case you have a glitch. Some people are prone to razor bumps more than others due to their hair type. Generally African American men suffer the most from razor bumps in general to the texture of their hair. Curly haired people suffer more from razor bumps due to the fact that once the hair starts to grow back, the angle that the hair grows from the skin causes the hair to curl or bend back toward the hair shaft causing ingrown hairs and razor bumps. The best way to avoid this is to use a fine scrub before and after shaves, and to keep the skin hydrated and clean. Target carrys a wonderful line called Everyman Jack that is ideal for razor bump prone skin. Some men use a T-Edger and get a close shave avoiding razors all together. Most black men wouldn't touch an electric razor.

They can if you overshave - for example if you were to shave and get razor bumps, then run the razor over the area again it could catch the tops of the razor bumps cutting them, thus causing the bleeding. It's very common when shaving your pubic region too as the coarse hair pushes the skin around the hair shaft up a little bit, so it's likely to get caught when shaving.

Most of the time if you have it handy shaving cream works the best and take your time. If you already have bumps and razor burns use a mosterizing cream (lotion) without perfems in it and the should disappear in a few days. Just be careful and take your time. :) Another way to stop getting razor burn is to not shave, I personally wax my legs using wax that comes from the grocery store. Waxing lasts longer and takes less time. To touch up after a while just shave using shaving cream. Hope that helps! :)
