African American men have special skin care needs. Treasured Locks is
happy to be able to offer you revolutionary skin care products that
nurture your skin's health. We offer products from leading
companies in this field. For those of you who suffer from razor bumps,
we offer Shaver's Choice and Black Opal. For those of you who not have
this special need, we offer premium products from Ajuvèn
(our own brand). Up to 80% of black men suffer from
moderate to severe irritation from shaving. This painful
condition is referred to as Pseudofolliculitis Barbae or Razor Bumps
ingrown hair, and razor burn. There are many products that
claim to cure this condition. The facts are:
- Most of
those products do not work and
- The condition cannot be "cured",
use of an effective Pseudofolliculitis Barbae treatment is required on
a on-going basis
Treasured Locks has waded through all the hype around products on the
market and chosen three systems we know to be effective. Those
three systems are:
- Formula 103- razorless shaving system. Revolutionary new
that provides smooth, comfortable shave with no irritation or razor
- Shaver's Choice- shaving system that allows you to shave
comfortably with your choice of razors.
- Black Opal for Men- shaving system that alows you to use razors.
- Bump Fighter Razors- razor blades designed with the needs of
black men in mind.
All of the products offered by Treasured Locks are naturally based and
have been specially formulated to treat these problems associated
particularly with African American skin. After a week to two
of usage, you will see old bumps fading and smoother and softer
skin. There may be some minor irritation or flaking for the
first few days. Please read the information we have here on
the products and feel free to contact us if you have any questions.
Formula 103 is a chemical depilatory unlike any other you've ever
tried. It removes hair from the face (and the bikini area and the
head) by the use a gentle herbal-based formula. No razors.
No bad smell. No irritation. Until we discovered Formula
103, we were decidedly against the use of depilatories for shaving of the
face. When we were introduced to Formula 103, we were forced to
change our minds.
Shaver's Choice is not just for the face. Do you get bumps and ingrown
hairs when you shave the bikini area? If you shave your head, do you
get bumps at the back of the neck? If so, you aren't alone. We can't
make your hair stop growing in those "hard to shave" areas, but
Shaver's Choice Foaming Shave Gel aids in the prevention of the shaving
bumps when used on a regular basis.
Shaver's Choice is a three step system is easy to use and adaptable to
your preferred shaving method: razor, clippers, or depilatories.
Shaver's Choice Skin Therapy Shaving System works to eliminate the
three basic causes of shaving irritations, including razor bumps,
ingrown hair, itching, nicks and cuts.
- First- Shaver's Choice Pre-Shave Cleanser
reduces or eliminates bacteria and germs for a healthier shave. This
helps to prevent infections.
- Second- Shaver's Choice Foaming Shave Gel
straightens and softens the hair, making it easier for the blades to
make a clean cut of the hair shaft. Both the Foaming Shave Gel and our
After Shave Therapy ensure the hair stays straight so it will grow
through the skin without causing future ingrown hairs and bumps.
- Third- the skin is softened, reducing a tough barrier for
hair to exit through. Shaver's Choice
After Shave Skin Therapy conditions your skin
which "realigns" the hair follicles.
Black Opal is one of the foremost names in Black skin care because of
their excellent skin care and cosmetic products. They have
also developed a four step system proven to improve the skin condition
of African American men who have difficult shaving with other
products. Based on a unique formula, the Black Opal Shaving
Survival System will give you noticeably smoother, softer skin with
less irritation. With regular use the system will reduce or
eliminate razor bumps and the pain associated with them.
The name Shaver's Choice was chosen because it gives shavers a choice
to use your preferred method of shaving. While shaving with a
clean, sharp razor is the preferred method for the healthiest
skin,alternatives are available. Click here to read the tips
