Best Shavers for Balding Men
Your head, like your face, can be shaven in any manner you please.
Though, electric shavers, trimmers, and clippers are the most ideal to maintain a clean-shaven head. Particularly for those who’ve had scalp micropigmentation, as an electric shaver or clipper will help seamlessly blend your hairline where the new pigments have been applied – giving that overall appearance of an evenly shaved head.
Cartridge and safety razors perform admirably, but, they’re small and time-consuming to use, prone to nicks and cuts, and awkward to handle when removing head hair.
For maximum comfort and best results, go with the best foil or rotary electric shaver you can afford. They will allow you to get an even, short stubble look across your head – quickly and efficiently – without nicks or cuts.
Standard electric shavers – designed for use on the face – can be used to shave your head. The Philips Series 5000, 7000, or 9000 and the Pitbull Skull Shaver are great choices for your head.
You can also use an electric hair clipper without a guard comb attached. This will cut your hair down to a length of around 05mm, giving a great stubble look.
If you want a closer shave, use a rotary electric shaver such as the mentioned Philips Series 5000 or the Pitbull Skull Shaver – the rounded, flexible rotary cutters hug the skin on your head, and with a buffering action, you’ll be able to shave your head clean in minutes.
How to Shave Your Head Properly
Regardless of your preference, preparation is important. Begin by applying a hot towel to your head. Heat and moisture soften skin, open pores, and cause hair follicles to swell.
Use a pre-shave oil if desired, then follow with a generous slathering of your favourite shaving cream or soap.
Of course, you don’t need to wet shave with gel, cream, or soap – you can dry shave with an electric shaver, too.
When shaving your head, use light pressure, and shave initially with the grain. No skull is perfectly round, so be mindful of small bumps and dips.
If you prefer to leave a hint of stubble, continue shaving in the direction of hair growth until no uneven patches remain. Otherwise, finish off by shaving – gently – against the grain.
If you’re using a rotary electric shaver, run the shaver across your head in a buffering action – in small circular motions over your entire head.
Splash your head with cold water to rinse off any residue and close the pores. Then, take a good look at yourself. If you’ve never sported a shaved head, it might take some getting used to, but stand tall and wear it proudly, because the science has spoken – bald men rule.
If your ready to rock the shaved head look, but reluctant to loose your hairline, this could be your answer. Scalp micropigmentation is an non- surgical solution to hair loss, which can give you a full head of shaved hair. Even on a completely bald head, hair loss is reversed with minimal downsides or aftercare. See more about scalp micro pigmentation aka the hairline tattoo here.
