Do depilatory creams just remove hair from the surface of the skin like shaving or do they go deeper?


it's a good question. Depilatory creams are like a mid way point between waxing which pulls the hair from the root and shaving which just chops it at the skin level. Hair removal creams dissolve the hair right under the surface of the skin so the regrowth afterwards is finer than with shaving.

Tip regarding shaving


.Shaving with grain means shaving in the direction of how the hair grows on your face. It is always best to shave this way. Shaving against the grain can cause redness, rashes, razor burn and ingrown hairs, which are all painful.<br /><br />

What are ingrown hairs? I have a few really sore pimple type spots on my legs and they are really sore. Is this from shaving my legs?


Shaving can cause ingrowing hairs. This happens when the hair that is cut curls back and grows inwards. It shows up as pimples or bumps and can look red and inflamed. If it's a constant problem or gets infected, you may need to get advice from a dermatologist.

Does your hair grow back darker and thicker once you start shaving it? I am talking about leg hair, not beards etc


Shaving your legs doesn't make the hair grow faster than it normally would, but because the removal is just from the surface and not the root - it grows back fast and that's why people think it's the shaving that's to blame. The other problem is that shaving your legs causes the hair to have a blunt tip and it makes the ends look more darker and more stubbly.

What is an electric shaver?


Not like shaving razors, electric shavers work by shearing the whiskers, the hair enters the perforated metal heads of the shaver and is cut by the moving blade inside.

Why should I shave with the growth direction?


The reason why you should shave with the hair growth is because there is less of a chance of nicks and cuts, and because it reduces the chance of ingrown hairs and razor bumps. Shaving with the hair growth tends to be a little easier on your skin as well.

How should I wash my face with warm water?


The best thing to do is to shower before you shave, if you do so, don't use extremely hot water cause it might dry out your skin. If you didn't shower before the shave, apply a warm, wet towel to your face a few minutes before you shave will help soften your hair and open your pores.

Does shaving make hair grow faster?


There is no evidence to prove this. Hair growth takes place in the hair follicle so any speeding up of hair growth would be due to changes in the hair follicle.

Shaving removes the tapered end of the hair so it feels sharp and stubbly when it appears again above the skin. This can give the impression it is growing out fast.

Also, hair that has been shaved will soon become visible again giving the same impression.
When the hair on your scalp grows by a couple of millimeters you hardly notice it. When freshly shaved hair grows by the same amount you immediately notice it as it reappears above the surface of the skin.

Final word: It must be said that every individual responds to shaving differently. This is because a person's hair texture, rate of growth, and skin sensitivity are different from the next person. So give shaving time and experiment with various accessories until you find the ones that really suit you giving you a close shave with minimal damage or irritation to the skin.

What is the best shaving direction?


Shaving in the same direction as the hair growth is the most comfortable method. Shaving against the hair growth certainly gives a much closer shave. Many use a combination of both.

Many dermatologists warn however that shaving against the hair growth can cause ingrown hair and irritation and it can make the skin sore and sensitive.

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!
