I'm curious about the use of unconventional products for lining up beards with a straight razor or shavette. I've read about various options, from baby oil to specialized shaving gels and even shampoos. I'm particularly interested in hearing from anyone who has explored alternatives to traditional lathers, creams, or soaps. What unusual products have you found effective for maintaining sharp lines on your beard? Are there household items that can double as a transparent shaving aid, providing both visibility and sufficient lubrication for a precise shave? Also, how do these alternatives compare to standard shaving gels in terms of ease of use, skin care, and overall shaving experience?

Trader Joe's Formula No 3 shampoo, conditioner, and body wash sounds intriguing! I never thought of using it for a pre-shave. Thanks for the tip!

I've had success using coconut oil for clear, slick lines on my beard. It's affordable and effective.
