When should I change my razor cartridge?
Also asked, how do you know when to change your razor blade?
The best indicator it's time for a new blade is dullness. If your razor blade pulls at your hair, feels rough on your skin or you notice more skin irritation than normal post-shave, it's time to replace it.
Additionally, how often should you change your razor female? "You should change your razor blades every three to six shaves," she asserts.
Beside above, how many shaves should a razor last?
On average, a man shaving daily should expect his razor blade to last around a week. This means that a razor blade will need changing after about 6 shaves if you shave using the three-pass technique (with the grain, across and against).
What happens if you don't change your razor?
