    It really does not matter which you do but you are not getting a good lather if it runs down the brush as well as splashes all over the place.

    I found this vid helpful and use a variation of the dry method. Rarely do I get soap splashed on the mirror, my T shirt or running out of my brush onto the counter.

    You make a very good point Bob, I just worked on the assumption that the lather was just to hold water on ones face so the wetter the better.

    It has to be said though, I never ever get lather dripping on my t-shirt because, I get out of the shower and shave in the same clothes I was born in

    I have never connected the act of shaving with having a shower first.

    It's just what I always did I guess, even when I used lazy shave and a 5 blade cartridge thing.

    It's because that's how they do it in the movies.

    I have'nt seen any of those movies, seems like it would be a boring scene but surely I'm not the only guy here that jumps out of the shower and has a shave.

    Actually. a lot of the shaving videos on youtube show the guy with damp hair from the shower

    Yupper, it is quite a common practice as is actually shaving in the shower too. Spender was just pulling your wizzer. Just keep in mind not everyone does things the same way nor do they have to.

    I had a shave this morning, after my shower

    I dipped my worn in boar brush, swirled and dipped again. I actually did it 3 times in my Henri et Victoria hard soap (french pear) and ended up with a very full brush.

    I started to face lather and dipped again. I have never had such thick creamy lather, actually I have never had so much of any kind of lather.

    It stayed on the brush between passes and after 4 passes i had to wash a still full brush down the sink.

    To the soakers out there , maybe give this dip method that Bob suggested a try, I don't know if I am a complete convert yet but, I have to say that I was impressed and definately going to try it with a couple of different brushes.

    You can get that same thick creamy lather if you soak your brush. Take a look at how the fella does it with a brush that has been soaking first in the vid I linked to. It is messier though.
