What are the best razor blades?

Ever since men started shaving beard hairs, they have always been looking for the ideal and cheap razor. The right razor is of course different for every man. Whether it concerns a cartridge razor, a shavette razor or a classic safety razor, the choice is of course personal. You cannot say that one razor is better than the other. This depends, for example, on your skin type, whether you have light or heavy beard growth, whether you shave your entire face or just the beard contours, etc.

In fact, everyone agrees that wet shaving ultimately feels much more pleasant than dry shaving with an electric shaver. By using warm water, shaving soap and shaving foam, beard hairs become softer and softer. The shaving foam also provides a perfect gliding and protective layer; the razor blades are closer to the skin. Wet shaving ultimately provides a pleasantly clean, fresh and smooth shave.

Which razor should I buy?

But which razor is your razor? The modern cartridge razor with 3 or 5 blades (3-blade or 5-blade) shaves easily, efficiently and comfortably. Changing the blades is super convenient and easy. Actually, this type of razor is suitable for everyone.

Many men decide to shave their entire scalp in case of hair loss. The ergonomics of the regular razor are suitable for shaving the face and not for shaving the scalp. That is why the HeadBlade razors are ideal for shaving the scalp. The design and convenient grip of the razor holders ensure comfortable and manageable shaving of the scalp.

The safety razor has made a comeback. Many men shave every day with this classic razor. According to many users, it even gives a better, smoother and more comfortable shave than the modern cartridge razor. It is a universal shaving system worldwide. This means that all double edge razor blades from the different brands fit in all razor holders.

According to some, the straight razor is the ultimate razor. Nothing shaves as perfectly as the straight razor. It is also the most durable razor. If you maintain the knife properly, you can later pass it on to your grandson. You have to learn to shave again and you also have to enjoy the maintenance. Do you like shaving with a straight razor but hate the maintenance? Then use the shavette razor. You can slide loose, interchangeable single edge razor blades into this razor. This means you always have a fresh and sharp razor. This razor is also ideal for shaving the beard contours.

Instructions for wet shaving with the razor

Regardless of the type of razor, shaving naturally starts with the right preparation. Protecting your skin is super important. We always say here, 'your skin is not made to be run over with a knife'. You get the best protection with a shaving soap or shaving cream, warm water, shaving brush and a little bit of time. The applied shaving foam provides a nice greasy protective layer. In addition, beard hairs should be softened. Beard hairs are as hard as copper wires, but they also absorb water. The applied shaving foam ensures that beard hairs become softer. Apply the shaving foam from your shaving cream, shaving cream or shaving soap for at least 1 minute and foam it up. This makes beard hairs softer and softer. This ensures an easier shave, more shaving comfort and a smoother shaving result. Press the razor very lightly on the skin. First shave with the beard hairs. While shaving, stretch the skin with the other hand. Shave with gentle, small and even strokes. Don't forget to rinse the razor while shaving. After shaving, you can shave against the direction of beard growth for an even smoother shave.

If you have a beard and you mainly shave the beard contours, it may be more convenient to use a transparent shaving gel or shaving oil. You can then shave the beard edges much better and closer and you protect the skin.
