Best natural shaving cream?
« on: December 05, 2018, 12:23:49 am »
Hi I was wondering what you guys recommend for shaving?
If I recall correctly AV talks about coconut oil in one of his videos, anyone have experience with this ?

Tried the raw eggs shampoo recently that he recommends, very effective.

plenty of hot water, steam shower if you have one, and join the dollar shave club, and use a sharp razor.  Haven't used shaving creme since high school when I believed you needed it.   Shaving creme holds and adds moisture to the hairs.  A natural soap will do the same.

Hmm, I think a sticky thread on RVAF alternatives to standard things like soap, shaving foam might be an idea. I'll post a tentative thread on this. I still use chemical toothpaste every 2-3 days,  as I love including raw garlic in my RVAF diet, and others absolutely hate it(including 1 female who has been in France for years, but never mind) - and I always use soap. I haven't used any shampoo, raw or otherwise, for many years now, but maybe a raw egg plus raw olive oil shampoo might be  an idea  3 times a year or so...?

The raw egg shampoo is really good, a lot better than I expected, cleans my hair and also gives it a nice shine. I do it weekly now for sure.. I don't use any soap or toothpaste pretty much, just the shaving I'm still figuring out if there is a natural alternative, I use a pretty non toxic olive oil based cream at the moment.

From looking at the we want to live website it seems AV recommends/ uses coconut cream and or kefir for shaving

Tried the coconut cream/ oil, it works ok but the cleanup is not worth it as everything gets sticky and the hairs get stuck everywhere on your skin.

I will just be sticking to hot water preshave+ some organic  least toxic shaving cream pretty much like the olive oil based one I'm using now.
