I shave daily and haven't had any razor burn since I started using olive oil on my scalp before applying some shaving gel.
Thatís a great trick. Iíll try olive oil next time when i run out of my King of Shave oil. Itís getting hard to find. But yes, about 6 to 8 drops of oil on the dome with shaving gel on top of that makes for a perfect shave. Itís just about eliminated all razor burn.
I donít fuss as much about getting that perfect shave. I have a pesky spot thatís tough to get smooth. But too my swipes with the razor will create a burn regardless of what you apply.
As for a shine, i use aloe gel. I do like a nicely buffed, shiny dome for weekends or after work. During the day, matte is fine, and I donít apply anything other than a moisturizer.
