Lately after shaving I have noticed little red bumps after shaving that disappear after about 1 1/2 to 2 hours. The bumps are primarily concentrated around my chin where a Goatee would be if I had one. I was thinking back to when this started happening and I am pretty sure it did not begin until after I got my Kingsley Pure Badger brush. Up until then I only used Boar Bristle brushes.
This week I decided to only used my Proraso Omega Brush to see if the bumps returned. They did not. I used a different lather product everyday and I three different razors to make sure that it was the brush and not something else.
My question is. Has anyone ran into this before? Do you think I would still get the bumps if I used a different grade of hair? I have been thinking about getting a SR-208 but I do not want to spend the money and then find out that I just need to sell it because I can't use it. I get great lather from my Proraso brush so I certainly do not need another brush, SBAD has set in.
Also, has anyone tried synthetic brushes? What was your opinion of them?
Any advice or responses would be appreciated.
