Hot Lather is in:

One of the best parts of a barbershop shave is the hot lather used. Now there's 2 ways to get hot lather. The first way is to go back to the canned shaving foam or canned goo as I like to call it, and purchase a Conair hot lather machine. I can tell you from experience that it does make a huge difference in the canned shaving foam's performance. Unfortunately I can also tell you from experience that over time, this machine will quit heating to the point to where you're wasting your time. After about 2 years worth of service, my machine gave out back when I was using canned goo on a regular basis. The other way to get hot lather is to have a shave scuttle. I recently placed an order for one at a supplier that I use and it has shipped. Basically it's a double boiler that heats up your lather and will give one of the best shaves you will ever have in your life. So wether you face or bowl lather, this device will help.
