Tyrone is a user of our CALYPSO Razor just like so many other men of colour. After he purchased and used the razor for a while, he sent us this video. We were amazed. His feelings speak for themselves.
Black men needed an affordable razor that was engineered from the ground up to suit their unique shaving requirements. They are plagued by ingrown hairs, razor bumps, and razor burn.
CALYPSO answers the call with a very gentle open comb head, a heavyweight handle, and precision design.
CALYPSO fights the war on ingrown hairs and wins!
Ingrown hairs are caused by a curved hair follicle, which produces tightly curled hair—causing the hair to reenter the skin once the hair is cut and starts to grow back.
Ingrown hairs are treated by the skin just like foreign organisms causing the skin to erupt into painful blister-like wounds.
CALYPSO is a unique product. It is designed to cut curly, dense hair, directly at the skin’s surface thereby preventing the hair from curling back where it grows.
A smooth, close, and efficient shave that has the problem of razor bumps, ingrown hairs, and razor burn solved once and for all!
CALYPSO is mostly sold through personal recommendations of one man to another. But we also sell it in our retail store WWW.CALYPSOSHAVE.CLUB, through college and university bookstores, and through a limited dealer network.
Brilliantly crafted and very affordable, CALYPSO offers a unique value proposition and is much less expensive than its rivals. The razor is made through a computerized process known as CNC machining. Tolerences in the manufacture of CALYPSO vary by only .0001%. Then CALYPSO's components are hand assembled and inspected for superior quality control.
How to get rid of razor bumps on black men is a question that grooming and health experts have tried to answer for years. Razor bumps may seem like a minor issue, but the truth is that it’s not. After all, it can cause scarring, irritation, and pimples.
There have been numerous suggestions on how to treat this condition, ranging from the use of special skin cream like hydrocortisone and tretinoin. African American razor bump treatment also includes home remedies such as cold compress, apple cider vinegar, and honey.
Prevention is better than cure, they say, so we have developed a shave system that can help thwart the onset of barber’s itch and other problems that plague black men when shaving.
The Calypso Razor has been designed with an “open comb head” that has been especially optimized for black skin and black beards. Featuring a long handle, and a specially developed blade gap, shaving with the Calypso Razor and companion Shave System, will present you with a virtually bump free experience.
For guys with curly hair, the use of multi-blade razor can be problematic. While a multi-blade cartridge can give them a close shave, the use of such razor also increases the likelihood of their hair getting caught underneath the skin and becoming inveterate. The irritated hair follicles may then swell up and form red razor bumps.
A double edge safety razor, such as ours, makes use of a single blade that passes through the skin at a more comfortable angle. The blade is able to cut the hair cleanly, without pulling excessively pulling or grabbing the hair. The open comb is designed to lift the hair before it is sliced thereby virtually eliminating razor bumps.
