Why should you shave your head
A bald head is beautiful and easy to clean. It can save you time and money and bring you away from the dandruff issue. You’ll have a happier, healthier head. Even the hair grows after shaving will healthier than before.
What if you’re constantly losing lots of hair and probably won’t get it back? Don’t worry, the baldness is right for you! There’re benefits you need to know about going bald.
Even though some women don’t think bald men sexy, but men with a bear head were considered as more intelligent, influential, knowledgeable, well-educated, high social status, honest and helpful (Gorvett, 2016).
The article posted on BBC written by Zaria Gorvett also mentioned: “the men who develop a receding hairline and bald spots before the age of 30 are up to 45% less likely to develop prostate cancer later on.”
So, let’s shave head and feel cool, confident and stronger about yourself!
How to shave your head safe and smoothly
Shaving your head is quite similar to shaving your face, it’s not that hard. Follow our step by step tutorial you can shave your head easily and safely.
Nobody wants to get hurt, so proper preparation is very important.
Tools: towel, shaving cream or soap, a DE Razor or single blade, styptic pencil, scissor (optional)
Make sure your blade is not faded. If the blades feel dull, you’d better change it with a new one.
The styptic pencil is for an emergency. If you cut yourself, you’ll need it. You’d better put one on the side, but I wish you won’t use it.
If you have long hair, you need to cut the length before shaving. So the scissor is optional.
With all these tools and proper hair length, let’s prepare for shaving.
Make sure your skin is nice and clean and well-hydrate.
The Clean Shaver recommend showering before you shave your head. If you don’t have enough time, you’d better wash your face and head with moisture soap.
Optional: Use lotion or balm to rub your head to smooth skin.
After preparation, you’re ready to shave!
1. Applying with shaving cream
There’s one secret tip you need to know for shaving: take time to build a good lather.
It’s because the thick lather you build will provide protection for your scalp and fight against irritation. You won’t regret taking an extra 30-60 seconds to make it for your scalp safety and comfort.
Note: Remember reaching all the spots on the back of your head.
2. Shave against the way your hair grows
It’s better to know what direction your hair grows. When you learned that, you can go against the growth to shave your head.
But if you don’t know the direction, don’t panic, you just need to go for a 1 pass. Don’t try to go multiple passes because your head skin is very sensitive when you shaving it. Unless you’re really experienced, it could be a little harsh on it to shave more than once. So it’s recommended to shave against the hair growth direction for experienced people, but if you just starting out, you’d better shaving with the growth and only shave 1 pass.
3. Go sloooooooooooooowly and listen to the razor contact
It’s especially important for beginners: Don’t go too fast, take your time! Another important tip you need to remember is don’t apply pressure on your razor. You don’t want to hurt yourself.
Because the razor is right on your skull, you can hear it really well. So you got the feel or probably hear that when the blade is actually making contact.
When you are doing the backside area on your head and you’re a beginner, you can use your fingers to stretch your skin for a little bit to keep the skin taught. This could help you shave the hair correctly and safely.
If you know how to put the mirror on your back, you can use two mirrors to see the areas back of your head. If you can’t find a way to hold the mirror, you can use your fingers to check whether you have missed areas and follow your feelings.
When you finish shaving, rinse with cold water to close pores.
Summary: Don’t apply pressure. Take your time. Listen to the razor. Stretch your skin if you’re a beginner.
4. Apply after-shave balm
It’s not a “must-do” but a highly recommended thing. The reason is when you’re shaving your scalp, the blade has removed some skin cells and it’s a very deep exfoliating process on your skin. Also, you won’t feel comfortable with a dry head. So after shaving, you need to apply nutrients on your scalp (fox example, a post-shave balm) to moisturize your scalp.
That’s it! You are happy baldness now! Because of coronavirus, you need to stay at home, so there’s no need to apply sunscreen. But if you’re allowed to back to work, you need to pay attention to sunburn, don’t forget to apply sunscreen on your scalp because you don’t want your head to have spots on it.
