I randomly stumbled upon a thread here at B&B and can't remember exactly where it lays. It invovlved cotton pads and scraping them (I think) with the grain, anyway I tried this unknown method. Now this might sound dumb but I still couldn't tell which way the hair grows as i just had cotton patches over my stubble. Does anyone know what the process to finding out which way your hair grows, especially under the neck? Little bit about me since i've been doing posts with no introduction: 19 years old from Australia, Doesn't warrant enough facial hair to let it grow out, so shaving around twice a week, but sometimes quite more since I am an actor - and clean shaven is a priority. Gear: Proraso aloe & Green tea shaving cream, Men U boar brush - (Will upgrade to badger Vulfix brush around christmas) Merkur HD Safety Razor, Blades - Undecided - trying out Personna Platnium red package tomorrow. I have really senstivie skin prone to razor bumps which hopefully will slowly reduce due to correct angle,pressure and finding out which way the hair grows. cheers.
