It is not always easy to decipher when to change your razor blade. Every week? Every month? Every year, even? In fact, there are no specific rules for when you should change your razor blade. It all depends on how fast your hair grows, how often you shave, how many areas of your body you shave and so on.
Everyone has their own way of deciphering when it is time to change their razor blade, but the best way to tell when to change blades is to be sensitive as to when your blade starts to feel dull.
In case you weren’t aware, shaving with a dull blade will invite cuts, nicks and rashes. Please be careful. Again, if you do not feel your blade is gliding across whatever area you are shaving or if you feel even the slightest pull, it’s time for a new one.
Bottom line: There is no rule for changing your blade. At the least, you should change the trim guide(s) once per year, and the inner blade every two years.
This brings us to this week’s poll question. How often do you change your blade?
