    Always Red Neck After shaving, any help or tips?

    I can't escape it. Whenever I shave, I get the worst razor burn. I have a good razor(norelco) and I clean it every 2 weeks. I have used aftershave and that still hasn't helped. No matter what I do, my neck is red. Straight razor is out of the question, because I break out from them. Shaving in the shower doesn't work either......any suggestions on what to do?

    Shave downward on neck, upward on under cheek/chin bone. Shave with a non-fragrance creme (Nutrigena makes one).

    Also shave hot water, immediately throw freezing cold water on face and neck. Works for me

    I have the same problem. I get a **** ton of red bumps on my neck every time I shave. They look ****ing nasty. I always shave with downward strokes on my face and neck. Should I be shaving upwards on my neck?

    just go with the grain..

    I go down above my jaw line, then down on my neck in the front, sideways on my neck on the sides, and then up on my neck on the sides.

    u should be shaving with the grain not against it, under your neck that is up
    soften beard properly with very warm cloth
    use a moisturising shave gel
    make sure your razors are sharp
    moisturise after if needed something like aloe vera is good

    how long have you been using an electric? some people have transition periods when going to electrics. it can cause redness and bumps..personally, use a blade(preferably gillete mach 3) and some edge sensitive formula and just shave downwards.

    shaving up under the chin is a good way to hoist some japaneese flags on your face.

    Bump, don't shave against the grain on your neck the skin is too loose so the hair grows under the skin if it's cut too short which gives you the red bumps or rash. Also really warming up and moisterizing the hair first will greatly improve the shave, a hot cloth is OK but it's better to shave after a hot shower. This advice is for a straight razor not an electric, if your prone to a rash electric should be a no-no because they cut your neck hair too close.
