Why does an electric razor hurt while shaving but a manual one does not ??

If I use an electric razor to shave it hurts because it is pulling or forcing the hair out.  If I use shaving cream and 3 blade disposable razor their is no pain.

    First off if it's hurts your blades are probably dull.

    Second off you need to get a shaving powder stick apply the shaving powder stick it does the same thing as shaving cream.

    Now shave your face you'll notice that it no longer feels like it's pulling the hairs. Instead it cuts them cleanly.

    A shaver does not work by pulling your hairs out or forcing them out the hairs go through the hole in the screen and then they're mowed off just like grass.

    Electric shavers must be maintained and kept clean or they won't cut properly

    Try cleaning you shaver. If that doesn't work replace the blades.
