Alternating shaving with electric and traditional blades
Hi - firstly, thank you for the videos on youtube - they are very informative and helpful.
Secondly, I currently wet-shave with safety razors - traditional badger brush and single bladed safety razor. I prefer this method - it allows me an extremely close shave but it does take time. I've read that alternating shaving methods is NOT good...do you have any experience with this?
I'm considering an electric razor for travel and for the days that I'm in a rush and can't afford the time it takes to wet shave.
And lastly, I'm Asian - would a foil or rotary work best for me?
Thanks for the comments.
I haven't tried alternating between electric shavers and disposable blades. I made the switch to electric shavers and never really looked back.
Sometimes I can see how people stick to wet shaving (if they're having no issues) because the process can be quite comfortable, ie rubbing in shaving cream and shaving with a nice warm clean face. But I personally wouldn't like to alternate.
The reason you've read somewhere that it isn't recommended is because it usually takes time to get used to an electric shaver. The thicker your facial hair the longer it generally takes. So jumping back and forth may not work for some people, but it doesn't mean you shouldn't give it a try. What doesn't work for some in regards to shaving may work for others. It's quite a personal experience.
So I would say in your case, if you don't have very thick facial hair it could be worth trying. Who knows, you might just stick with the electric shaver ;)
For those just starting with electric shavers I recommend foil shavers over rotary shavers. If you don't have very thick facial hair a well priced shaver like the Panasonic ES 8249 S is a good choice, or going with the Braun Series 7 is my main recommendation.
Let us know how it goes!
