Well after years of wasted money trying this and that disposable and have serious skin irritations for various reasons I started on a hunt. The husband of a good friend spent a bunch of time explaining and telling me where to research, which leads me here. He was also very generous and provided a Gillete Superspeed, a couple packs of Astra SP blades, and a tube of cream. I searched locally and finally found a brush at the local beauty shop, it will need to be upgraded asap as it was super cheap and with one use started loosing hairs. My first shave went so, so with only a couple of minor nicks and a tiny bit of razor burn. Today was my second go around and wow! Such a better shave then the first. I have learned a lot in the last week as my hair is growing in differently then before, also I'm no longer getting the irritation that I was having. Did I say I have problem hair? Super wirey, very thick and all around a pain as it seems to grow in every possible direction.

I've got lots to learn still and I'm sure I will play with many razors in the future. In the next few weeks I hope to find a nice brush grab a blade sampler pack and maybe try a couple of other creams and soaps.

Until then lots of reading to do and wandering around the site to figure it out.

Welcome to the Nook.  Use that 'cheap' shaving brush to learn what you like and dislike and create your own brush based on that info.  It will save you time in your search.
