Title: How often do you shave?
Post by: clint902 on October 14, 2020, 10:34:51 AM
I usually shave in the morning with my de then throughout the day I touch it up as needed until I go to bed.  My wife thinks I might be ocd about it but I'm retired and this is a hobby for me and I have the time.  I use shaving gel but I find that conditioner works slightly better.  For touch ups(I usually miss a spot)  I simply soap up the area then hit it with my de.  Works good for me and I hardly ever have to tackle more than a few hours growth which is fine by me :)

I usually shave every day in the shower. I think alot of us are ocd about keeping a totally smooth head! Interesting to hear you're retired and headshaving has become somewhat of a hobby. I'm exactly the same way. I often wonder what my friends would think if they knew how much time I spend on my morning shaving routine. If I wasn't retired, I don't know if I could find enough time to maintain a daily shave. Anyway, I definitely enjoy and look forward to doing a perfectly smooth headshave every day.

I work shift work, usually working 2-3 days and then getting 2-3 days off. If I'm coming off of a day rotation I shave on the first day off, if coming off of nights, I'll shave on the second day off. So on average for me it could range from anywhere from 3-5 days, though life circumstances may force me to go longer (like in April when I spent 10 days in the hospital and grew a 16-day fringe)

A 16 day fringe???  I can't even imagine that!  Wow!  Nearly kills me to go a single day.  I'd be like  :D

Usually daily or every-other-day. But in COVID times it really depends on when I plan on leaving the house.  ;D

My preference is daily, and I do not think I missed more than a handful of days for my first 5 years.  I tried twice a day a few times, but it seemed to irritate my skin. I am less OCD about it now, and normally shave every other day unless I have an event to attend.

Now I've done it. >:(  I got myself a razor burn in a few places so I won't be shaving tomorrow.  Whenever I get a burn, I usually take a day to recover.  I seem to have that problem when I put in a new blade.  Oh well, such is life.

 I donít shave every day, in fact I find that if I shave every other day I get a much smoother cleaner shaved then if I try to do it every day.

 I got a really great shave tonight!   I used a few drops of shaving oil first on my scalp and then I used a kind of a different shaving lotion that I got a Trader Joe itís a mango peach cream shave and it has the consistency of like hair conditioner and it also has aloe and vitamin E in it    Did my usual ones over with the green followed by once over against the grain and I have the most absolutely perfectly smooth head right now that Iíve had in a long time it feels wonderful !
