Shaving the head with a DE is quick, slick and easy. I think I nicked myself once right behind my ear.

Just had my first go, caught myself once but only just; had worse off a mach 3.

Feels ok, my soap & brush hasn't arrived yet so used some gel out a can.

Hey guys, how often do you shave?

I was a 'shave once a week' kind of guy back when I used disposables (mainly because I didn't care about shaving), and a 2-3 x week guy with the DE (it's quick and become more of a ritual).

Now that i'm using the shavette, I've been shaving every day to get the hang of using the my hands differently. But I don't know if I'm overshaving. My neck feels a little irritated. But I'm baby-butt smooth.

Only just started but most likely every other day or once every 3 days.

I'm an every other day shaver. I will sometimes shave everyday depending on where I need to go or what I am doing

I shave most days, I tend to take a break at the weekend, but it really actually depends on whether or not I workout.

I am jogging now every second day, so that is making it an every two days affair mostly, although sometimes I will shave at work when I get in, I have a travel kit for when I want to shave in the office, we have good facilities here and I shower here anyway cos I cycle in daily.

i just noticed this thread.. i've been a wet shaver for about 5 years now.. the amount of money i've saved on blades is priceless.. i tend to buy 100 feathers at a time every year or two.. i can use the same one for 2-3 shaves depending on how long i've waited.. i "try" to be an every other dayer, but sometimes it goes to every 2 days.. converted one person just from posting stuff on facebook about it..

I shave everyday but sunday. Unless I have to work a double then I don't care... When I used carts it was when I needed to shave. When I started DE It was every other day then I just liked being smooth so I started going everyday.
