Shaving with razors can be a pain, especially for men of African-American descent. Those with curlier hair are especially prone to razor bumps, which can be painful, and, over time, can even scar. To prevent this from occurring, some men turn to alternative methods to shaving. One such method involves the use of Magic Shave, a chemical hair remover.
- Skill level:
Things you need
- Magic Shave powder
- Non-metallic bowl or cup
Test your skin first. Before applying to your entire face, apply Magic Shave powder to a small area of your beard first for five minutes. After rinsing thoroughly with water, wait 24 hours and see if any reaction or irritation develops. If so, do not use the rest of the product.
Mix up the Magic Shave. Gather a teaspoon and a non-metallic cup or bowl and place by sink. Scoop two heaping tsp of Magic Shave into bowl and mix with two tsp of water until a creamy paste is formed.
Apply Magic Shave. Using a non-metallic spatula or other similar flat utensil, apply cream to entire beard. Leave on for five to seven minutes.
Remove Magic Shave. Using the spatula, gently remove cream and hair with one edge, being cautious not to scrape at face. Afterwards, rinse entire face thoroughly with water.
