First post on this forum. Found some good topics and I was hoping I could get some help from you folks.
I'm an oriental asian in my early 20s. I started shaving sometime during high school but it wasn't frequent. Within the last year or 2, my shaving habits have really picked up and I shave every 2 or 3 days, at most. I started out using disposable razors. I started shaving more frequently after that so I stepped up to my disposable cartridge Mach 3 . Ive been using disposable cartridge razors ever since and I'm currently using the Gillette Proglide Power.
Over the years, I've gotten numerous cuts and razor burns. My shave has gotten better since I've started using better grooming products and techniques but I still get the occasional burn and ingrown hairs. I'm just not satisfied with my shave.
I don't grow as thick as many other guys do. It's rough but I don't grow all over my face and neck. Its mainly above my lip, chin, and jawline. I don't let it get too thick because I just end up looking creepy.
I've been doing some research and I'm stuck between what I should switch to. I like the convenience of electric razors because they don't require much prep work and I do travel somewhat so its pretty convenient to bring along on a trip.
DE razors seem to be getting alot of praise on this forum and many people like the old school techniques.
I'm just stuck and I don't know what to do. I just want my face to look more clean without all the red bumps and burns.
