I've actually tried this before but to no avail. I'm wondering if its possible to do if one has a course enough beard and catches it right in the stage where it feels like sandpaper and before it gets longer and starts to soften. This question is one of many I have pondered in life. Of course some may say my switch is half off. Has anyone ever tried this or heard or have seen someone doing this. I'd love to know just out of curiosity.
