Switching from Whals to OSTER 76 rid me of my folliculitis!
Reviewed in the United States on August 20, 2018
Although I've purchased hundreds of products on Amazon, this is my first time writing a review because I felt it was absolutely essential and hope I can help someone struggling with the same problem as I previously did. I used to go to a great barber but I started developing this nasty red bumps on the back of my neckline area. These bumps would swell with puss, be painful to the touch, and very large and noticeable. The dermatologist said it was folliculitis and I was put on doxycycline and given a shot near the area. I was so embarrassed I didn't want the barber to see so I started cutting my own hair with a pair of Whal clippers (the same brand my barber used). I have oily thick hair that grows very fast so to keep my cut easy, I just ran a #1 across my entire head. I struggled with these bumps for 3 years, they would reduce then flare up again constantly and I couldn't figure out what to do and was just very frustrated with my dermatologist. At wit's end, I started doing research and came across a review for the Oster 76 saying it rid them of red bumps so I purchased this clipper immediately to try out. The results have been amazing!! These clippers cut extremely well and it feels so smooth. I love the metal guards, the plastic Whal ones always felt weak and it would sometimes break giving an uneven cut and I'd have to replace them. All my red bumps have disappeared and I no longer take any medication. 100% worth the money, I have my self-esteem back and a pair of clippers that actually does it job without fuss!
