    Default First ever complete/clean - it's the angle, stupid!!

    I'm sure many others have felt as dumb as I am and posted the same... today, I got my first ever complete (including neck), fully clean shave. I realize now, I was responding to the remaining hairs with the wrong solution. I would INCREASE the angle and drag the razor when I could still hear stubble remaining. This time, I dropped the angle and did smoother strokes. The first time, fully clean shave, makes me feel like I just lost my virginity.

    Funny analogy, but once you lose your virginity, it only gets better (as does your technique). Keep at it and I'm sure you'll be wearing a permanent smile!!

    ha ha... good point Haroldg! Once you pop the cherry, you get better with age. I was just so impressed with myself for doing my first complete/clean, that I had to share. My wife wouldn't get it.

    Damn - 2 days in a row now!!! I might be getting the hang of this!!! I had about give up on being able to clean shave my neck until I realized the dropping the angle method.
