Frequent shaving and hard skin

Frequent shaving and hard skin

Some believe that frequent shaving will make the skin and hair hard. However, it is not true. shifanew

If that were the case then other body parts that are subjected to regular shaving, though not on a daily basis, should also develop a hard skin. But that does not happen. Beard hair are generally harder and tougher and what makes them feel harder is the fact that the shaving blade cuts the hair at an angle. Thus making their tips beveled and sharper to touch. If the hair were plucked or waxed as is done by the ladies, the new hair growing out of the roots will not be beveled and pointed and therefore would not feel sharper or harder. shifanews

This phenomenon is the reason why females believe that shaving makes their hair harder. I am however, not suggesting that men should also start waxing or plucking their beard hair. That would be painful and also damaging to the face skin considering the size and toughness of beard hair. Having said that, a small percentage of men do wax their beard and chest hair from time to time and they do not complain of a harder skin or hair. shifanews

Hardness or softness is just a feeling and a subjective one. It cannot be measured precisely and therefore cannot be objectively evaluated. Men with hair genetically thicker in diameter would feel harder. And the cut edges would feel even harder and sharper to touch. Using a shaving foam or gel thoroughly and for a sufficient length of time can soften the hair temporarily. It would feel softer, at least for a while. The good old shaving brush would always give you a superior soft shave because it softens the hair more effectively. Use a good quality sharp blade and let it glide softly and gently over the skin. Do not shave against the direction of the hair growth. There is no product that can soften your hair and keep them that way; however, you can keep your skin feeling soft by using a good moisturizer. shifanews
