Shaving – Down To The Nitty-Gritty

Shaving is an old-fashioned method of hair removal as razors have been around for many hundreds of years. Despite this, shaving remains one of the most widely used ways to get rid of unwanted hair. Shaving involves cutting the hair at the skin level, and can be used on legs, underarms, and the bikini area. It should never be used on a woman’s face.

There are a number of razor options available for women today. What is the most popular type of razor?

Disposable Razors are probably the most popular types of razors, because they are so inexpensive. They come in packs of six or ten and each razor should be used only a maximum of six shaves to keep the blade at peak sharpness. Some women claim that men’s razors are as good as women’s, but this tends not to be true: Many women’s razors have two blades and include a thin lubricating strip that is soothing for sensitive skin. You may find you get razor burn more frequently by using men’s razors. Since disposable razors cost so little, shop around for a brand you like and invest in plenty of shaving foam while you are out shopping (using a disposable razor without shaving cream can be extremely irritating to skin).

Which razor would enable me to ‘dry shave’?

Electric razors are intended for use on wet or dry skin, depending on the type of razor. You may like these razors, since they are faster and a bit more high-tech than disposable razors. These are also great for women with sensitive skin, since electric razors cut the hair, rather than scraping against the skin. They are more of an investment than disposable razors, so if you are in the market for one of these, you should do your homework and investigate many different brands and types.

What is the advantage of using a permanent razor with replaceable blades?

Permanent Razors with more popular in recent years. Basically, you keep the handle of the razor and replace just the blades. This is a great option for those who want to replace blades often, since a package of blades generally costs less than a package of disposable razors. Just make sure you choose a brand with a handle that grips well and has razors that are easy to snap in. Be sure that the brand you are buying has inexpensive razor blade refills. As an added bonus, many of these sorts of razors have attractive handles that are better made and easier to grip in a shower than the cheaper disposable razor handles.

What results can I expect from shaving?

No matter what razor you choose, you can expect the results of shaving to last anywhere from a day to a week (depending on how fast your hair grows). Some people believe that shaving produces thicker hair over time, but this is a myth. It is true that when you shave, your hair grows back as stubble, which can feel thicker. Regular shaving will eliminate this stubble, or at least keep it under control.

Shaving may not be the most exotic or exciting way to get rid of hair, but it is pretty fast and cheap. It creates a nice smooth surface and doesn’t involve pain unless you cut yourself. It is definitely one of the best ways to get rid of underarm hair and in fact, most unwanted body hair.
