"I just purchased my first DE, a red cross gillette tech. Even though my skin has done well with modern razors and crappy gels, i am thoroughly looking forward to finally taking pride in shaving, and doing a little something nice for my ugly…"
"I had the same problem until I started shaving with a straight razor. Soften the hair (a nice hot shower will do) lather with a brush and shaving soap, then shave with the straight. Follow with a hot towel and the after shave of your choice. Never…"
"I'd suggest he start using a straight razor or a double-edge (DE) safety razor. Ingrown hairs are a problem because of the "lift-and-cut" system that disposable razors employ these days. The straight razors and DEs only have one edge…"
"I also rock a straight razor and have found that it makes you focus much more on the shave and thus avoid razor burn. You have to take your time(20-30 minutes), which is good in a world where everyone is rushing around. The only difference in our…"
"For me, on my work days I shave in the shower to get a close shave as I tend to take hot showers. On my off days, I use my mug and brush at the sink taking my time to get a close shave. I will give my face a break only once a week from shaving as my…"
"I used to get razor burn on my face all the time with safety razors, it's not been a problem with a straight razor. Check out straightrazorplace on the internet, it's great. The best shaving soap I've found is made by Colleen Hurley…"
"my shaving regime:
1 Pick and prepare razor:
I use straight razors, so I try to pick one that I did not use yesterday, or the day before. After I've picked my razor I give it a quick sharpen on a hanging leather strop, then a quick rinse to…"
"While the stock answer for many of us would be for your friend to switch to a DE, I think that's a bit further down the road for him. Probably some basic things would make life easier. 1) A good shaving cream. If you have to go canned (ugh)…"
"Sometimes, it depends on what he's using. We here would all like to pretend that a safety razor works the best for everyone, but some skin responds better to an electric shaver. If he hasn't experienced both, recommend that he try the…"
"He actually may want to go to his doctor. Most men have in-grown hairs because they've never learned to shave properly, but people who are born with curly hair have it much more difficult. There are a wide array of products for African-American…"
"Yeah let's not pretend like it's entirely altruistic. It's a transaction wherein there is a mutual exchange of cost and benefits. And we all know that it's easy come / easy go. If / when it's no longer beneficial to the US,…"
"People often refer to Krav Maga like it's this super micraculous unbeatable system that will make you invicible.
The reality is that Krav Maga can be good but it all depends on the quality of the instructor and his training methods. IMO most…"
"I'm 5'5" about 140 lbs. soaking wet. Because I live in Taiwan, there's not a soul I fear, as I'm about average size here. But I remember working in a gym as a personal trainer (working mainly on clients looking…"
""Rebekah I think most self-defense classes for women-and men-, but for women in particular are worthless because they are not nearly violent enough."
It's true. IMO, a self-defense program isn't super useful if it doesn't…"
"Watch the free stuff. You'll see if you like it. Even watching the The Ultimate Fighter reality show (which has thankfully gotten much more tasteful over the past few seasons) is pretty itneresting to see how they train and prepare for fights.…"
""What channel is the UFC on?"
Depends. Pay-per-views are online or through your TV provider, free fights are online and on Fox.
I usually just watch highlights or *cough*streams*cough* after the fact because I can't bring…"
"If you're still in good shape, why not go to an MMA gym and try it out? If you can box and you can wrestle then a little bit of light sparring could be fun! You'd probably take the young guys by surprise!
And yes, I too…"
