This is the first time I am shaving with an electric shaver, is there anything I need to know?


If your switching to electric shaver or it is the first time you shave you will need to give your face three weeks to adjust to electric shavers. Try not to fluctuate back and forth between blade shaving and electric shaving during the first three weeks.

how can I clean my braun washable series 3 (330) shaver. better. I can take it apart so far but just cant get under the blades


This model uses a 'shaving cassette'. The blades can not be removed from the foil assembly. Braun's instruction is to simply rense the shaving head under hot running tap water. Unfortunately, this does not work very well over time due to the poor design of these parts. Once they become clogged up it is usually necessary to replace the cartridge.
If replacement is needed you will find one at shaveroutlet.com. See link below

How many times can I use one blade?


This depends greatly on the individual and the thickness or coarseness of the hair. Some prefer to change a blade after using it once or twice, others after 3 or 4 times while many expect between 5 to 7 uses.

The key is to change it regularly and always use a sharp blade. If you feel it dragging on your skin it's time to change it!

What is wet shaving?


Wet shaving at its simplest, is just that - shaving with water, a razor blade, and some sort of lubricant (lather, soap, etc.) on your face. Men have shaved this way for centuries, starting early on with a sharp knife or stone, progressing to the straight razor, safety (double-edge) razors, and eventually cartridge razors from companies like Gillette, etc.

can i use shaving cream with a norelco electric shaver?


According to the Phillips website, it is NOT a waterproof shaver, therefore it is not advisable to use any liquids prior to or during shaving.

However, as a hairdresser and having experience with shaving men for many years, you can use the tried tested and true method of either shaving AFTER you get out of the shower so that your hairs on your face are softer from being in the moisture, or if you are not planning on having a shower, you can just use a hot face cloth on your face for a few minutes before you shave. This will soften the bristly hairs on your face and make it easier to shave.

I hope this helps. Please remember to rate my help. I would greatly appreciate it!
