Most redheads suffer from sensitive skin, and shaving can be a big irritant. Did you know using your razor too long could lead to cuts, ingrown hairs, and even more irritation?
Razor blades get dull, and using a dull razor can cause you to cut yourself. Additionally, an old razor can harbor bacteria, dirt, and other gunk that you’re then transferring back onto your leg. That’s why keeping your razor blade clean and changing it often is an absolute must.
Here’s how often you need to be changing your razor head and why:
Change your blade every 5-7 shaves
The frequency with which you change your blade really depends on how often you shave. It’s recommended that you change your blade every 5-7 shaves. So if you shave every day or every other day, you’ll need to change it a lot sooner than if you’re only shaving 1-2 times per week.
Choose a nickel-free razor since most redheads are allergic to nickel
To reduce waste and save on cost, opt for a reusable handle with a disposable head. Additionally, you will want to choose a razor that is nickel-free since most redheads have a sensitivity to nickel.
