How often to change the blade on a razor?
The first urgent question from men concerns how often it is generally necessary to change the blades so that the shaving process is as effective as possible and minimally traumatic for the face skin. If you shave with blunt blades, this will lead to pulling out the hairs and scraping off the upper layer of the skin, and in order for the man to shave off the hairs, you will need to make efforts.
The frequency of blade replacement depends on several factors:
- densities of bristles
- stiffness of hairs
- shaving frequency in men
- the thoroughness of each shaving procedure
- razor and blade quality
- the correctness of the procedure and much more.
You need to understand that blades from different manufacturers differ in quality, production materials and degree of sharpness, coating, and other characteristics. But on average, experts note that a standard razor blade withstands about 3-8 procedures for shaving bristles. If we talk about high-quality blades and from trusted manufacturers, their service life is 6-8 procedures.
How to care for your razor
Many men prefer to use disposable razors for one simple reason – you can not wash them and throw them away immediately after use. Yes, it’s great, of course, but isn’t comfortable high-quality shaving more important?
Doubt it? Then let’s make a deal! You will try to start using a razor with interchangeable cartridges – for starters, you can give preference to a simple and economical option, such as the Gillette Mach 3 Turbo, and we will tell you how easy it is to care for!
Rinse blades regularly while shaving
This will help not only extend the life of the blades but also provide a more comfortable and high-quality shave.
Rinse blades after each use
The fact is that the remnants of the gel or shaving foam contribute to the appearance of rust, and stuck hairs can cause scratches. To thoroughly rinse the razor and clean all corners, hold it under a sufficiently powerful stream of water, turning at different angles.
Do not try to clean the blades by tapping the edge of the sink with a razor: such actions can damage the cassette. The blades in your razor will snap into the wrong angle and shaving with this cassette will not be possible.
- After washing and drying, drop a few drops of alcohol-containing liquid onto the blades.
- Alcohol will displace the remaining moisture and sanitize the blades.
- Apply oil a couple of times a week to dried and sanitized blades.
- It can be either a special oil or regular baby or essential oil. It will keep the blades sharp and clean.
- Store the shaver in a dry place or in a special container
- Do not leave the razor lying in the bathtub where water will fall on it.
- Change cassettes in time
Even if all the rules are followed, cassettes need to be changed regularly. Only sharp blades can provide a comfortable clean shave without irritation.
Which razor to choose?
A razor is a convenient tool designed to combat unwanted hair on the face and in other areas. It has a handle and ahead with one or more blades that carefully cut off the regrown hairs and give the skin a well-groomed appearance. Even children know about what a shaving machine is, but it is not always possible to choose a model that suits all criteria.
For many decades, many manufacturers have been working on creating innovative products in the field of shaving products, constantly improving them. As a result, men’s machines with new features and improved design are entering the market, designed to facilitate the shaving process, make it more effective and minimize skin irritation.
The range of offers is constantly expanding, and often buyers are faced with the problem – which shaving machine to choose?
