    Would shaving with Head And Shoulder Dandruff Shampoo, cause any pernament, or temporary damage to the skin? Reason because I ran out of shavving cream.

    And I did search google with no results!

    I'm not a dermatologist, but I seriously doubt it. For the interim, that should work just fine; however, if you're concerned, you could use regular body soap instead.

    Nonetheless, all medical questions should really be directed at your healthcare provider; if you have a skin condition or develop a rash, contact them instead of us. :)

    I doubt it'll cause any harm. Wait- what exactly are you shaving? There are some body parts that could become irritated if you use shampoo to shave them. ;)

    Won't that hurt on open skin? If you cut yourself I would imagine it would sting.

    Grow a beard, its winter. Playoffs start in a couple weeks anyway, a playoff beard is always good luck.

    There are at least 6 other products in my home that I would consider shaving with before I were to use H&S (if I even had that). :D

    1. Butter
    2. Lube™
    3. Olive oil
    4. Soap
    5. Jello
    6. Preparation H
    :eek:

    it's really not going to lather your skin and it will sting really bad after you are done.

    In high school I once shaved with hand soap and that hurt.

    Being a girl, I can't speak about shaving one's face, but I've shaved my legs with soap before. It works ok and doesn't sting much.

    But I'd avoid H&S because of the anti-dandruff chemicals. Not something you want to get in any small shaving cuts.

    A good lathering body wash should do the job just fine.

    Buy a good boar bristle shaving brush, and use dove soap.

    Just use an electric shaver if you have one...

    I shave like once a week with an actual razor and shaving cream. In between I just shave with a "three ring" electric shaver, that way I don't cut myself often...

    Shave in the shower.

    Admit it, that's how you prepare a turkey for Thanksgiving, isn't it.
