We have gotten to that time of the week or month. “What time?” you ask. That time when you have to get a shave. By now, your beard has grown to mammoth size. For the ladies, it must be that leg hair that is growing denser than a rainforest. Get a shave people as it’s the only way out. For some, this process can be so tedious that we’d rather hire out services to get this shaving done. I’m pretty certain you are aware that you can do all these shaving work yourself. Simply assemble a faultless shaving kit. Here you are going to learn how to gather the right tools for your shaving kit. This process of assembly can be viewed as making a long-term investment.
The first thing is getting an awesome razor. Of all elements in the kit, this is the primary one. You will notice that there exists a wide variety of razors ranging from the classical straight razor to the modern electric razors. All razors will have a certain advantage and disadvantage, but for someone who isn’t a pro yet, the safety razor would be the best choice. Safety razors are known to be well, safe to use, relatively cheap and have a small learning curve. A double-blade razor can be good for a newcomer, rather than the multi-blade razors since you are able to protect against injury. Get a razor with a longer handle to increase grip, that is resistant to corrosion and whose blades are firmly in place.
The next big thing is the type of blades that you choose. It is essential to select the blades well as they are the ones tasked with the actual shaving job. A well-chosen razor that has terrible blades will still harm your skin. A soft and sharp double-edged blade is the best option. This way you will be able to avoid those notorious bumps. The aim is to get value for money in something long-term.
Next up on your list should be the shaving brush. Strong animal hair is one of the key elements used in making these shaving brushes. Go for a shave brush that has soft but strong bristles, great water retention abilities and is able to whip up a dense creamy lather and easily aid in applying it on your face. A good soap or cream needs to go with the above apparatus. The soap or cream is intended for lubrication prior to shaving; hence it should do this well and also contain components that are pleasant to the skin. Get an aftershave that is free from alcohol so as to reduce aftershave skin irritation. Look for something alcohol-free, inhibits inflammations and good smelling. If you stick to all the above, your kit will be good to go.
