I was recently having a conversation with my aunt over facial hair and arm pit hair, and I was totally for the idea of no-shave forever!! What is a man without his hair? What do you think? Are you into hair or no? Harry’s is a brand that has a different approach to men’s hair and grooming. With a range of products available, this article should help you figure some of the common mistakes and some of the things to avoid when taking care of your hair.
PREPPING THE SKIN
Before you get to shaving it is important to prep your skin for the blade. A splash of water is just not enough, the best would be to use a hot towel (that should be comfortable to the skin) or shaving just after a hot shower. For women, the best way to prep would be shave as you shower.
NAVIGATING YOUR HAIR PATTERN
For this tip, it is important to let your hair grow out. The first pass of the shave should be in the direction your hair grows towards, then the next pass should be against the grain where the hair is shorter.
NO TO SOAP AND BODY WASH
Run out of shaving cream? Do not use soap!! I repeat do not use soap! Even though soap and shaving creams feel and look like the same thing, soaps remove dirt and oil from the skin which works against your shave. Shaving products provide moisture and slip agents that help decrease friction.
USING TOO MUCH OR TOO LITTLE SHAVING CREAM
When you too much shaving cream, your grooming process becomes a slippery mess and makes it super easy to get cuts, when you use too little your hair might not soften up causing a rougher shave. Harry’s shaving gel helps remove any form of irritation, with natural ingredients like aloe and cucumber.
BE MINDFUL OF YOUR RAZOR
Remember to store in an area where there is limited water exposure. Do not throw it in a drawer where it will also stock up on bacteria, opt for a snazzy razor stand from Harry’s (pictured below)
Another crucial tip for grooming is changing your razor blade every 6 to 8 shaves. A sure way to cost save is by using the Harry’s subscription that enables you to receive quality blades and you can do this in an easy step by step process on their website: HERE.
