So I've finally come to terms with my thinning hair and kneecap looking bald spot on the back of my head. It's time to say farewell to my hair and embrace the manliness of the shave. I'm only in my second week now and have found that I go through 2-3 disposable razors (Schick ST2) every time I shave. I start by using my trimmer (a mini Norelco), a few sessions with a hot washcloth, followed by a rubdown with shaving cream (Burt's Bees for Men), and then a close shave mirror side. Sometimes I'll do some blind cleanup work under a shower, but other than that, that's about it. I'm finding that this ritual is taking sometime to master and is starting to eat a hole in my wallet. Any advice on a good long lasting razor or a time saver for this new bathroom regiment?
Ok bro I been shaving my head for a few years now get a head blade! takes a minute to get used to but once you do you wont regret it. I have used one for years now and they rock!
I have tried other regular shavers and all that and if you want a real close smooth shave this thing delivers.
If you dont mind the stubble look go electric thats kind of how I got started to get used to not having an hair at all.
I've been shaving my head for about four years now.
I've found that my scalp is much more forgiving than my face. I shave with Barbasol on my head, and shaving soap on my face. I use a safety razor. It's by-far the most economical way to shave. I can get 50 blades for <$15 on Amazon.
I put in a new blade for my face, then do my head next. Shaving once with the grain, then a second time against it. Then the blade is done.
If my hair gets too long between shaves, I buzz it with a good set of clippers first.
After shave is witchhazel and Nivea.
