After 5 shaves with a DE razor I'm still having trouble building lather. Usually I'll have enough for 2 passes, but after that my lather begins to dry up, or I simply don't have enough to cover my face. (I've tried adding water, but it just turns it into a bubbly mess) Also I've noticed after passes that my face is quite dry.
This is my lather building routine:
1. I soak my brush (Edwin Jagger Best Badger) in hot water for about 10-15 minutes. (Depending on how long my shower takes)
2. I shake my brush out once.
3. I then squeeze out an almond sized amount of Florena shaving cream into a glass mug.
4. I start stirring for about 5 minutes until a decent amount of lather is produced.
Anyone have any idea on what I may be doing wrong, or do I just need more practice?
