Although, I'm newly registered to the site, I've been using B&B for a number of years as my guide to shaving. I have learned a lot from many of your posts (many thanks!).
For my first post, I would like help figuring out what DE is best suited for someone who gets lots of ingrowns? I have been using a Merkur HD for about 4 years now. At first, it did help alleviate the ingrowns but I was still getting them. I even went as far getting laser hair removal (only one session) to help alleviate the problem; though it did significantly reduce the problem, it didn't prevent altogether.
I have tried various pre shaves, creams, soaps and blades but still get ingrowns. I shave right after the shower. I don't shave ATG as it will exacerbate the ingrowns. I currently use a Merkur HD w/ Feather Blades. I've been lathering up with TOBS and use proraso balm as my aftershave.
I'm not sure if I should be using another razor. Please feel free to provide recommendations/suggestions. Thanks in advance.
