Can You Use Conditioner as Shaving Cream?

Imagine a scenario where you walk into the bathroom on a Monday morning to take care of the thistles of facial hair that grew out over the weekend before heading out to work to find that you are out of shaving cream. That’s every office goer’s nightmare. That and a broke-down car. What Does Keratin Conditioner Do For Hair?

The alarming part is that this nightmare is often realized. Blame the busy work schedule or the ton of other important thoughts buzzing nonstop in your mind, but almost every working individual finds themselves looking at an empty tube or can of shaving foam on a workday morning at least once in their lifetime. You can preemptively stock up, but there is no guarantee that one day when the last one runs out, you will remember to refresh the stock just in time to have a new tube ready by the sink when you need it.

Conditioners hydrate the skin leaving it slick and soft, much like a penetrating hydrating or moisturizing cream.
