Anyone ever think about how Boromir and Aragorn were shaving during the Fellowship’s journey? I mean, they each could have had their own little shaving kit, but mirrors (silvered glass) might be expensive and impractical to bring on a journey like that. Besides (in the books) they were mostly traveling at night, so when they got up it would be dark out and not ideal for shaving. And forget trying to shave at all in Moria, where they had a very limited water supply. So I have a theory:

Aragorn has a shaving kit with a tiny cracked mirror, which Boromir keeps asking to borrow. After several awkward shaves, it becomes easier to just shave each other. Aragorn admits he doesn’t actually shave that often; it’s impractical in the wild to keep clean-shaven, and he only does it now and again so his bowstring doesn’t get tangled in a beard. He’s been trying to look a little cleaner though since the hobbits said he “looked foul and felt fair.”

Boromir keeps having to borrow Aragorn’s kit since he lost his with his horse in the Greyflood, and didn’t get a shave between there and Rivendell. Or in Rivendell. None of the elves shave or have short hair and he couldn’t find a razor anywhere. The first time he got a shave since the Greyflood was when he finally caught Aragorn shaving in Eregion one morning and asked to borrow his kit. 

The rest of the Fellowship (besides Gandalf) is very intrigued by the whole scenario, since a) hobbits and elves don’t grow beards and b) dwarves don’t shave their beards. The result is seven pairs of eyes watching the process every single time it happens, with Legolas and the hobbits looking on curiously and Gimli just shaking his head sadly.

The Road goes ever on and on

Down from the door where it began.

Now far ahead the Road has gone,

And I must follow, if I can,

Pursuing it with eager feet,

Until it joins some larger way

Where many paths and errands meet.

And wither then? I cannot say.

Meriadoc Brandybuck and Peregrin Took, «The Lord of The Rings»
