    What do black guys at boot camp do when they have to shave while at bootcamp? i know a lot of us get razor bumps or ingrown hairs when we shave with a razor. i heard somewhere a while back that they allow blacks to use the hair remover cream. anyone got some light to shine on this for me?

    shaving profile
    they can let their hair grow out to something like 1/4" so they don't have to shave every single day

    they can either get a shaving chit that allows them to not shave everyday or they can have prescription shave gel from medical.

    You're going to have to shave at some point in boot camp. Prepare yourself.

    Yeah, in order to get a profile you will have to develop them first.

    u mean i gotta shave regular until my skin gets fucked up, then i can use that as proof to get special shave gel or something? thats cool, long as i dont gotta keep fucking it up repeatedly and causin it to permanently scar.

    they take away everything you bring with you in Marine boot camp so that is a nogo if you're going that route ...

    emm I believe they allow you to keep prescription medication, so if you get some shit prescribed to you, it may be a different story

    yes, you are going to have a fucked up neck and chin area...but once it happens, you get a profile and you are golden. at benning, they sold bump stomper brand shit, i have no idea if it works for black dudes tho.
