Cheap Trick: Conditioner as Shaving Cream

During my junior year at my boarding school, there was a rumor that went around about some girls using aerosol products to get high. Honestly, I think it was just paranoia based on a few reports in the news, but to be safe, all aerosol products were confiscated from the dorms.

Being very preppy, most of us were low maintenance with our morning routines, so this wasn’t too much of an inconvenience. But some of my friends complained about shaving their legs without shaving cream. This is when I learned a cheap trick for shaving – use hair conditioner instead.

Conditioner is cheaper per use for shaving than shaving cream is, and works just as well. Unlike soap lather, it creates a smooth surface to shave, and it also moisturizes one’s legs better than soap does. And when one is packing up a weekend bag, this trick makes for one less item to take up space.

Have you ever given it a try? Do you find that it works for you?
