Here is my shave routine. Get a glass of wine, go to the shower, scrub my head in hot water with Doctor Bronner's Peppermint soap and a bristle brush while I scrub the rest of my body. After I wash, I run a sink of hot water and then lather my head using a boars head shaving brush with whatever shaving soap I have on hand. I then shave using either a HeadBlade or a Safety razor. I do it twice, with grain and against grain. Do it nice and slow. I never cut myself. After the shave, cold water rinse, Old Spice After Shave and then Nivea after shave balm. THe glass of wine helps me have slow ritual.

The shave with the wine is something Iíll have to try. A little music also.

I shave in front of the sink using proglide. When I first started shaving my head, I used to put a hot face cloth on my head while I shaved my face first. When I shave my head, I go back to front then front to back. I cut myself every time I don't use a mirror, strange but true!

I don't shave every day and use Gillette fusion.

I completed a 30 day challenge two weeks ago of shaving with a straight, I got tired of using cartridges, after I shower, I lather up and itís pass one against the grain with my Straight, then I lather up and shave with the grain with a straight razor, then I put on aftershave then an aloe moisturizer.

I shave while I shower, alternating between the Gillette Fusion with Dr. Bronner's Shaving Soap; and the Parker 24C DE Safety Razor with WhatTZzUp's Shaving Soap of the Gods. I finish off with Shave Secret to condition the head.

I also found Shave Secret great as an after shave complement. Plus I like the scent.

hot shower, room steamed.  cream,  razor.  New blade weekly. with and against grain, usually 2 passes. feel for stubble and hit again if needed.   apply Kilz moisturizer to face and head after air/towel dry. the days, I miss, I prob save 5-6 minutes of bathroom time. Get dressed, finish coffee, put dentures in and go!

if I'm ready to leave the house and notice a missed spot, I'll hit it with my electric .

My own routine is, shaving foam with the grain.  More shaving foam, against the grain.  I then go across the grain in both directions.  Im thinking of cutting out the cross grain passes though, it takes between 15-20 mins, all told.

My routine so far and so good is shave with Either HeadLube or pacific shaving cream with Schick Extreme 3 and itís all against the grain.  I do have the headblade moto but it seems Iím going over so many times, that itís causing razor burn.  I do have some hb3 on the way maybe thatís the problem.  The hb4 doesnít seem to cut any hairs.   I donít know any thoughts?
