Reason Behind Sharp Stubble:
Before applying any method to make stubble softer you must know the reason behind its sharpness. Usually short stubble has sharp and uneven edges that make stubble rough and abrasive in touch.
The short stubble has a length of between 0.4mm to 5mm. It is up to you what length suits you. The other reason can be skin type or moisture level in the area you are living.
The dry skin requires much hydration and if there is less moisture in the environment it will dehydrate the stubble hair. Too much washing of the face removes the natural oil from the skin and decreases the moisture level.
