Fellas, Take Note
The only way to get a smooth shave is by doing a couple of things. First, you must change that blade after every second (really the first!) shave and you have to use a brush to prep those hairs and get them up and out and ready for their cut! Using a brush will prevent ingrown hairs as well and so it is especially important for anyone with thick and curly hair to use this religiously! The results speak for themselves.
Use on warm and moist skin to initially wake up your skin and hair and then keep going with your favorite shaving product, massaging and prepping every step of the way. This wood brush does not have a plastic ring between the bristle and base so, after cleaning it, to avoid it deteriorating sooner than later, leave it in a sunny spot to dry.
