We consulted our most experienced barbers about Pre-Shave/Shaving oil. Why use it? How to use it? Here's a few tips about the benefits of using oil as part of your shaving routine:
What are the benefits?
-Lubricates the skins
-Softens and lifts the hair making it easier to cut
-Moistens the skin deeply making it easier for the blade to glide
-Opens pores which allows for a closer shave
-Keeps skin moisturizes through the heat of the hot towel
How do I use shaving oil?
-Massage shaving oil into skin until absorbed
-Either take a hot shower, splash warm water, or use a hot towel to further hydrate the skin making it more pliable (be careful of the temperature, you don’t want to scald yourself!)
-Lather the skin as usual with your favourite shaving cream or soap and shave away!
