1~The average man shaves 20,000 times in a lifetime. That's a total of 3000 hours in front of the mirror.

2~More than 50% of younger men sport some kind of facial hair, be it a moustache, goatee, chin strap or "soul patch" (a beatnik-style triangle extending from the lower lip to the chin).

3~The global men's shaving market is worth $9 billion a year. Gillette accounts for 70% of sales, with Shick/Wilkinson Sword in 2nd place with 20%. Gilette has 86% of the replacement catridge market; Schick has only 14%.

4~Over his lifetime, an average man removes about 8 metres of facial hair.

5~The Gillete Mach3 blade catridge is said to be the single most shop-lifted item in the world.

Yikes..not for women..hahha..only for our crowning glory but coconut oil may not be ideal becoz of the strong smell.

My bug life-->Ha =) Yeah. Coconut oil is good for hair because it nourishes it right? It also nourishes our hair if I'm not mistaken.

Incredible statistics! I think I only shave once a week, so that's 52 times a year, 520 times in 10 years, and 5,200 in 100 years if I live that long. No where near 20,000! Maybe the average man shave everyday. I'm too lazy for that! Hehe
