I figured I'd try something different today and I've been reading quite a bit about using olive oil so I said, "why not!" so today I washed my head as usual then applied a few drops of olive oil to my scalp then I applied my usual shaving gel. I honestly didn't expect much of a difference but to my surprise, I got a really smooth shave and my scalp feels fine. I did get one cut on the back of my head but it was my fault. I'm embarassed to admit I went sideways with the de but the rest of my head is fine. How after all this time could I not know about olive oil?
