It is recommended to run your razor under hot water after every one or two strokes. The more frequently you rinse it, the smoother the shave. Clogged hair not only blocks your razor from shaving other hairs, it also causes repeated friction and pressure, which also causes razor bumps and irritation. Hence, effectively dulling your blade.
Not only, it takes more strokes to achieve a close shave when your blade is clogged with hair and shave lather but skipping rinses make razor blades much tougher to clean because the combination of hair and lather solidifies into a tough crust.
