So summer is here, and for me that means shaving my legs a lot more. I have been blessed with a lot of hair. I have beautiful thick shiny hair on my head, and A LOT of it. Now that wonderful advantage of having a full hair of thick hair means I have a lot of hair EVERYWHERE else. My eyebrows are huge, I have hair growing EVERYWHERE...lol. It is not a pretty picture.
So not only do I have a lot of hair all over my body it is dark, black hair. So that means on my legs it is more noticeable. I often in the summer shave my legs every day. Two years ago I was developing a rash on my legs from the shaving cream. So I did some research, and it turns out that shaving cream is just whipped soap...ummm duh I'm allergic to soap...lol. Like gees why didn't I figure that out for myself. It was then that I heard about people using hair conditioner to shave their legs. Umm conditioner? Ohhh okay. I had to let my rash heal for about a week, and then tried shaving with the conditioner. All I can say is WOW what an amazing product to shave your legs with. First off no more rashes! I get zero razor burn, and not only a super close shave, but my legs are soooo soft after. Another great advantage of using conditioner is that price doesn't matter. I usually buy dollar store conditioner to shave with, and it works better than any expensive shaving lotion!
So anyone else shave with conditioner? Do you have a favorite brand? Do you use something else to shave with other than shaving lotion or cream?
