So ive been shaving my sideburns, mustache, chin, neck, and area right below my bottom lip with usually a cheap electric shaver my dad has. It has 3 little round heads, and i have not really ever had any problems. I had been using cheap, disposable, plastic, 2 blade razors my mom and sister get for whatever. They get the job done and i dont really have any problems with them. Now im starting to like to only use manual razors because i can shave easier, closer, and more precisely. Everywhere on my face besides my sideburns, i shave with the grain to not get pimples or bumps. Only thing is sometimes those manual razors can kinda nick my skin sometimes and they can be kinda painful on my thicker hair like my sideburns when i go against the grain, but it is a WAY closer shave if i go against the grain and i dont have to shave for like a few days, but again, i only do so on my sideburns right now.
So, i would like to see what would be a good permanent razor. Nothing too fancy or expensive. I would like to keep the price under $20, replacement blades under $10 or so, and available in US stores like Target.
Also, when should i start shaving against the grain on the rest of my face? I began shaving my sideburns before anything else, and when i started off, if i shaved against the grain, it would give me razor bumps, but now after a couple of years i can shave against the grain with no problems besides the slight pulling pain when i let it grow a little more than usual. So it makes sense that the same would be with the rest of my facial hair, and i am just wondering if this is true for the rest of it.
P.S. Seems like when i let my upper lip hair grow out a bit more than usual, i start getting pimples in that area, and when it is nice and hairless, nothing happens. Anyone else notice this? Maybe it could be ingrown hair follicles or something when the hair is let to grow?
