Hi there, My first post and I will try my best to entertain you about the shaving and its techniques. Lets get to the point, the first essential to a perfect shave is water and warmth. When hair absorbs hot water it becomes softer and easier to cut and with warmth the skin and facial muscles become relaxed, making shaving so much easier. Thus the best time to shave is after a bath or shower. Soaking a folded flannel or small towel in hot water and wrapping it around the face for thirty seconds can also achieve this effect. Agreed ?
