The days of multi-blade cartridges, canned foam, and plastic razor handles are numbered. Men are now rediscovering the art of traditional wet shaving, and for good reason. Not only does it offer a closer and more comfortable shave, but it also provides a moment of relaxation and indulgence in an otherwise hectic day.
At Like Grandpa, we've always believed in the old school way of grooming, that's actually how we got started! We believe that quality and care should come first, and that's why we've developed a range of shaving products that bring us back to a time when shaving was an art form.
But what exactly is traditional wet shaving, and why is it making a comeback?
Traditional wet shaving refers to the use of a safety razor, a shaving brush, and a shaving soap or cream to achieve a close and comfortable shave. It's a technique that has been around for centuries and it was the norm until the advent of multi-blade cartridges in the mid-20th century.
So why is traditional wet shaving making a comeback now? Well, for starters, it offers a superior shaving experience. The safety razor's single blade glides smoothly over the skin, reducing irritation and the risk of razor burn. The shaving brush helps to create a rich and creamy lather that hydrates the skin and prepares the hair for a closer shave. The shaving soap you use is often made with natural ingredients that nourish and protect the skin, leaving it feeling soft and smooth.
But traditional wet shaving is more than just a better shave. It's also a way to slow down and enjoy the ritual of grooming. In today's fast-paced world, we often rush through our morning routines without taking a moment to appreciate the simple pleasures of life. But with traditional wet shaving, you're forced to slow down and take your time. You need to create the lather, apply it to your face, and shave in deliberate, careful strokes. It's a chance to indulge in a moment of mindfulness and self-care, and to start your day off on the right foot.
Of course, traditional wet shaving isn't without its challenges. There's a learning curve to using a safety razor, and it takes some practice to get the hang of it. But that's part of the fun. Learning a new skill can be rewarding, and the satisfaction of achieving a close, smooth shave with a safety razor is hard to beat.
