F*ck it! I'm shaving my head for now on. Any advise for this newcomer of the bald?

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?

Start with a sugar scrub (coconut oils, sugars, essential oils).

Shave brush and mug shaving soap.

Double Edge razor Short slow strokes.

Then finish for a smooth finish with the Head Blade Sport.

Rinse.

Apply witch hazel, after shave (favorite is Pinaud Clubman), then smooth it off with Head Lube Glossy for a nice shine.
