Rotary shavers, meanwhile, fit those with rough and curly hair. They do not need to be cleaned quite as often as foil shavers, and they are generally regarded as more convenient, as some models do not require shaving cream to operate.

    What sign rules the heart?

    A:

    Leo is the astrological sign that is said to rule the heart, and those born under this sign are said to be the most passionate people of all, which is a good symbolic fit for this sign's representative, the lion. In addition to ruling the heart, Leo is also said to rule the spine, though that anatomical feature may not have the characteristically apparent features that align with what are said to be hallmarks of the Leo's fiery, intense personality.
