When you're shaving any part of your body you DO NOT wait for firm, dirty individual hairs that resist the cut of your razor. A few things will happen from firm hair:
- Inconsistent shave - some hairs will not cut at their base leaving inconsistent stubble where you shaved.
- Ingrown hairs - When a hair doesn't cut from your razor the razor edge will dig into the hair and pull it from the skin as you move the razor along your skin. This leads to irritated follicles and hairs growing back at an angle, eventually ingrown.
- Razor dulling - When your razor can't make an easy cut it dulls fasting doing 130% of the work it should have to do.
So, when you soften hair follicles with Shave Cream containing conditioning ingredients you avoid all of these terrible outcomes!
