Over the years we’ve heard some really funny habits and facts about shaving. Here are a few we find particularly interesting:
It is a requirement in most militaries that soldiers must be cleanly shaven. Why? The most important reason is for self-defense. It prevents enemy soldiers from grabbing them by the beard during a battle. Also, a beard gets in the way of wearing an oxygen or gas mask properly.
Fact or Urban Legend? You might have heard that shaving causes your hair to grow back thicker. This is 100% a MYTH. A hair strand has 2 sections, dead and living, and shaving eliminates the dead portion. The myth exists because of the natural tapered end of facial hair.
A man’s face has 10,000- 15,000 hair follicles! The Staples Center in Los Angeles, home the LA Lakers, has 19,000 seats. That number is mind-boggling!
Most men store their razors improperly. Leaving your razor in the shower day after day exposes your blade to bacteria in the damp environment. Make an effort to store your razor in a clean and dry place. Your skin will thank you!
Men have been shaving for 5000 years! Using raw materials like flint, clam shells, and shark teeth, men taught themselves how to shave.
The very first razors were found in Egyptian tombs and were made from copper and solid gold. It was a custom in ancient Egypt for men and women to shave their heads and facial hair.
Do you have interesting facts or absurd shaving myths that you would like to share? If so, we would love to hear them!
