Wetshaving advice for a black friend?
One of my best college buddies is a black man with obvious razor bump problems on his neck. Ingrown hairs, etc. I know he's had his qualms with shaving fusion-foam style. I think he's also self conscious about the whole thing.
How can I "convert" him to wetshaving in a courteous/gentle manner? i.e. I'd rather not be like "Hey those razor bumps look terrible, here's a better way to shave!"
Also...to get him started, can I safely borrow him my DE to have a go? Do I need to disinfect/do anything aside from throw a new blade in and tell him to have a go of it? Should I or can I suggest any products to eliminate the bumps before he tries something new? Any non-Scandinavian-white-as-you-can-be members wanna chime in on the subject with advice/experience?
I just want to broach the subject and get my friend on the path towards a happier and healthier face!
