    Default baby shampoo as pre shave

    I have used shaving soap under a hot towel with some success the hotter the water the closer the shave,but no good to me far too uncomfortable warm/hot ok.
    ,i then used glycerin soap and found it very irritating again under a hot/warm towel,and concluded the Glycerin soap was stripping the skin of natural oils. So why
    not baby shampoo designed to be kind and not strip the skin of oils,but does it work and why.
    Well it works a treat,and conclude its hydrating properties that is all thats needed under the the warm/hot bar towel,and held for 60 slow seconds counting,anyhow it works
    for me and i am staying with it,the baby shampoo was Aldis but i expect any brand would do.
    Anybody had a similar experience.
    I wet my face,apply a small amount of baby shampoo then carry out my 60 strops and then apply the hot/warm bar towel for the 60 slow seconds ,and then normal shave routine.

    If the baby soap starts to irritate or dry your skin then give Noxema a try.

    Noxema is an excellent beard softener and moisturizer.
    If you don't care where you are, you are not lost.

    I have not tried baby shampoo as a preshave step to hydrate my face and whiskers. What I learned here was first a warm towel, then apply shave creme and let it stay on my face while I strop my razor. Then I wipe off the shaving creme with a hot towel, rub water on my face, re apply shaving creme and commence to shave.
    This has worked very well for me. The real point to all of this is to show the varied ways each of us take to achieve
    the elusive bbs result proclaimed by our ancestors.
    gssixgun and rolodave like this.
    Proper prior planning prevents piss poor performance.
