1. Shower or bathe before you shave. Soaking hair and skin in warm water makes it more than twice as easy to get a clean, close shave.

 

2. Use gel or shaving cream. This keeps moisture in the hair and helps the razor glide easily over your skin. Reapply when you retrace your steps to go over an area again. Never shave on bare skin.

 

3. Use a fresh blade. Dull blades lead to nicks, cuts, and razor burn. Ouch! Sharp, new blades give you a closer, smoother, more comfortable shave. Replace your razor when it shows signs of overuse or when you re no longer getting a clean shave.

 

 

4. Easy does it and go with the flow. Always use a light touch with your razor and don't apply pressure. Wherever you take it off, go in the direction that feels right. For example, on your lower leg go up from ankle to knee. For other areas, see what feels and works best to find the direction your hair grows. When shaving your bikini area, shave in the direction of hair growth first (inward) and against for an extra-close shave.

 

5. Save the tough stuff for last. Do the easiest parts first, like that long straight stretch of lower leg or upper thigh. Save smaller, harder to reach spots like knees and ankles for last. A great razor with a head that swivels makes it easier to move around small curves. After shaving, rinse with cool water to close your pores. Pat dry.

 

6. Seal with a kiss. Of moisturizer, that is. Coat the area with a protective layer of moisture to seal your skin and give it a healthy glow.

KikiCutie, I am an African-American too and it's not true that it will get thicker and darker if you shave your legs and arms it only gets thicker and darker if you shave around your facial area, so don't be afraid to shave your legs.

I only cut myself twice by mistake and it was because I was either pressing too hard or rushing.

It's so unfair that girls have to shave all the time when they get hairy, while boys do not have to! However, we do look nice that way. :s
