Probably shouldn't have done it this morning - every 2 days is a bit more frequent than the 2-3 times a week prescribed - but trying to find time on Christmas weekends is just too difficult to contemplate. I have better things to do, like sleep.
Used the long blade first - i hadn't grown many 'long' hairs in the previous 48 hrs but i'm sticking to protocol - and then got thorough with the stubble blade.
Also, I tried to concentrate on keeping the glide slow.(My patience runs out pretty quickly and I start moving the no!no! faster in the misguided hope that I'll be done sooner when it just means the no!no! is less efficient.)
Time for whole legs: 50 min
A little extra attention on the knees. That, and I was still half asleep.
Result: Not as close a crop as the first time. Stubble still soft, though.
Notes: In trying to stop my skin dying, i'm moisturising the day/night before I no!no!. Perhaps supple skin squishes away from the no!no! more, resulting in longer stubble. However, since i'm showering after no!no!ing in order to wash off the smell of burnt hair, I get to massage moisturiser into my legs and thighs afterwards as well. Perhaps I can nuke my hair and minimise the visible effects of cellulite at the same time! Ah, the beauty myth. How we love it!
