Wow! My youngest daughter has started shaving! I am amazed how quickly time flies by. I mean my oldest daughters are 26 and 27 (soon to be 28). My two sons are 17 and 19. These are the ones that I actually considered investing in safety razors for men for! :) Then my fifteen year old daughter and now my baby (she is 12 and will be 13 this year) has started shaving. I think I am getting old!
Anyway, with each of the girls I did a walk through about safety with razors, both our own safety and the safety of others. Have you ever stepped on a disposable razor when getting in the shower? Or perhaps you have had an experience like my husband. Someone put their razor in a cup on the edge of the tub and when he picked it up (he was not wearing his glasses), someone had not put the safety cover on. Yes, he received a small slice to his thumb. He wasn't real excited about it either. So, we have rules about shaving, for the safety of others. Always put the safety cap on and put the razor away when you are finished. If you should drop yours, or see someone else leave a razor on the edge of the tub or the shower floor, please pick it up and put it away.
I did go through some simple tips for my daughter. She was taught how to hold the razor. We discussed the different types of shaving creams and gels she could choose from. I prefer moisturizing gels. I also informed her to never, ever dry shave. I am sure she will though, because I think we all do at one time or another. At least she was warned.
We talked about different types of razors she could use. Disposable, safety, electric. My one daughter even reviewed one you charge by plugging in to your USB. Strange!
What about my neighbors? Do you have any great hints or tips for shaving? Perhaps you have a shaving incident or funny story you would like to share. Be sure to leave a comment and let us know.
