First-Time Barber: Stand Out With Your Signature Shaving Cream

Posted on

You know how competitive the barber field is, and you need to find a way to stand out to get regular customers. Besides using your skills and winning personality, perhaps creating your own signature shaving cream might do the trick. And knowing how to relieve razor burn naturally may help too. 

Help Clients With Valuable Information

You know just how important a good shaving cream is for the skin to prevent irritation. But, even with a good cream, a shave in the wrong direction could easily lead to inflammation and ingrown hairs. You could offer some valuable information to your clients. Let them know how to relieve razor burn naturally; this will help clients who might try to shave on their own sometimes. And this might make you more valuable to your customers.

Help your clients with the following:

  • Wash the area with warm water and soap.
  • Pat dry the area
  • Apply witch hazel over the area using cotton balls and, if necessary, do so daily until the burns go away. Witch hazel has antibacterial properties that should prevent infections and is also astringent, which should help tighten the irritated skin and reverse the swelling. 

Now you can move on to your signature cream that should help you stand out from the crowd.

Signature Shaving Cream

You need the following ingredients to make this creamy shaving cream:

  • 2/3 of a cup of Shea butter or Shea nut oil
  • 2/3 of a cup of coconut oil
  • 1/4 of a cup of grapeseed oil
  • 10 drops of organic prickly pear seed oil
  • 10 drops of German chamomile oil
  • 2 tablespoons of baking soda
  • 5 drops of vitamin E

Mix these ingredients in a dark jar, and keep it in a dry and cool location. The shaving cream should last about a month, depending on usage. 

Healing Benefits Within Your Cream

The following are a few reasons why you should consider using these ingredients on your patrons:

  • Vitamin E  nourishes the skin with antioxidants, which could prevent wrinkles and also help repair the skin.
  • German chamomile contains bisabolol, which should help soothe skin, reduce redness, and prevent inflammation.
  • Prickly pear seed oil helps reduce redness, contains antioxidants that may help your skin glow, prevents inflammation, and tightens pores to make the skin look younger. 

You can purchase these ingredients from your local health food store or online, but yes, having natural knowledge and a product no one else has should help you stand out as a barber college graduate.
