I have a very thick beard, and normally I wait about a week between shaves, so that the stubble has reached a length that makes it "bendable" and much easier to shave painlessly. To get a close shave I like to go against the grain. However, it's only been growing for 2 or 3 days right now, and I need to be clean shaven for tomorrow. I know that if I try to shave it as it is it'll be extremely irritable and painful. How do you shave when you've got extremely tough, extremely short, extremely thick stubble, and you want to be totally clean shaven?
