I've done about 10 wet shaves with a DE now. (parker 22r - i like the handle and it was cheap while im learning)
The good news, I never use to be able to shave my neck every day with a twin blade cartridge. Now every day is just fine, no razor burn or ingrowns on my neck! I did have a problem on my 2nd wet shave but I found out I was using way too steep and angle and tried too many passes. So , for now I'm just doing one pass there and may work my way up later.
The thing I could use help with are some other trouble spots. Obviously my chin is difficult, but I figure I just need practice being consistent with the right angles. However in the middle of my cheeks I have a few hairs here and there that have an uncanny ability to escape being shaved. Every hair around them behaves, but there are a few on each side that won't cooperate. Xtg doesn't get them, and atg gives me razor burn. I'm getting what I think is really good later with MWF, lather in a bowl. If I follow directions I've read I get way too much lather for three passes. Anyway, apply to face in a circlular pattern, then brush it out. Maybe I should make sure to brush up more to help those hairs stand up. Anything else?
Also I don't remember this problem with a Personna red blade. Only with the derby I just used for four shaves. In retrospect I shouldn't be changing blades as I'm learning, but wanted to ask about this possible blade difference too.
Thanks for your help.
