Pseudofolliculitis Barbae is a condition that occurs in many people who have curly hair. It is more common in African Americans. The hair essentially becomes ingrown and curls into itself and the skin creating an inflammatory reaction and irritation. By reducing the hair, the skin discoloration from the inflammation is minimized and the skin is smoother and softer.
