Is It Ok to Use a Razor Blade Twice?

Last updated:

Yes, but depends on blade quality and hair type.

Here’s a concise summary based on the ShavingBit

  1. General Recommendation: Change razor blades every 5 to 7 shaves.
  2. High-Quality Blades: Up to 10 shaves with brands like Gillette Fusion.
  3. Factors Influencing Durability:
  • Quality and type of blades.
  • Amount and density of hair being removed.
  • Number of body parts shaved; full body shaves reduce blade life by half.
  1. Type of hair; thicker and coarser hair decreases blade lifespan.
  2. Gender Differences: Women may achieve more shaves (10 to 14) due to typically softer and thinner hair compared to men.
