Shaving with Cold Water
Did you know that shaving with cold water is much easier; it allows the hair to be stiff and the razor to slice the hair.
Research shows a few reasons to switch to cold water. First of all, it causes less skin irritation. This method has several benefits, not just for you, but for your gear as well. Take your razor. Nice, shiny, sturdy piece of metal. Feels nice when it’s warm. So does the blade. But get this. The hot water used to rinse the blade causes the tiny metal molecules in the blade to expand, making the razor dull after only five shaves. Cold water, on the other hand, causes the molecules to contract, giving the blade a better edge and longer life.
I don't know about you all, but the thought of showering and shaving in cold water, doesn't sound comfortable at all. However, if it allows for a better and loner lasting shave, maybe I'll give it a try.
