My 13 year old thinks it's time to do something about the peach fuzz on his upper lip. I'd welcome any suggestions for an easy, safe way to teach him to shave. I think i'll postone the wet shaving lessons until he really needs them.
really though, theirs kids hunting at 8. wish my pops would've considered teaching me to shave. personally, i say hand him the DE. i took wood shop class at 12 and 13
My 13 year and I had our first DE shave together 1 1/2 weeks ago. He reckons the "stubble" needs it again, so Sunday night is shave night.....
Slim Adjustable, set to 1, with a 4 shave old blade. First shave was a 6 pass, first 5 was lather only I think
Quick wipe with the Nivea Afterbalm. All done !!!!
Just watch out as the 15 year old DEed a couple of times and has gone back to the 'lectric
Might try and get him DEing again on Sunday. Might need a bigger bathroom though
( 11 Year old might even get a shave ( no blade ) )
Oh and enjoy the lather fights !!!!!!
DO NOT SHARE BLADES. If you've got to have a "broken-in" blade, cork a new one. At the very least, if you absolutely must let him use a used blade, soak the blade in rubbing alcohol for at leat 10 minutes before letting your son use it (kinda how IV drug users are supposed to treat used needles).
Personal experience here. I had a patient a few years back who shaved her bikini area with her husband's razor. She developed tunneling necrotizing fasciitis in her groin. It was not pleasant packing that wound every day.
