Yeah, but I though more specifically about DE blades. I often red ones saying, this or that blade caused me irritation, this one is not for me. I don't understand why it can be.Cartridge razor with two many blades will create irritation. They can cause ingrown hairs and razor bumps because they pull whiskers out of it's socket and then whiskers pull back in that can cause issues. Single blade stops ingrown hairs more effectively.

Generally, it's caused by too steep an angle and too much pressure. It can also be caused by going over one area too many times. It's never caused by a dull blade unless combined with the two preceding errors.
Dull or rough blade, poor prep, wrong angle, too much pressure, rushing, bad technique in general, and going over the same spot too many times, to name a few.
Good advices. I promise to stay on 1 razor and 1 soap. Blades, I'm too curious...I have one hard and fast rule for shaving... don't shave over an area without lather.
There are so many variables when one is starting out that it is often recommended that one sticks with the same set-up for a month or so to see how technique can improve and with that.
Well, if the blade is not sufficiently sharp, there is a tendency for the person to apply extra pressure to compensate. This leads to scraping the surface of the skin instead of just cutting the hair. Or the person may go over the same area again and again to get everything cut, leading to irritation.Ok so that's rarely the blade to blame ! Learning to do things correctly is the key. Good
