Unexpected 2nd head shave A-Ok

Post by Austinoire » Sun May 29, 2016 9:24 pm

I had skipped shaving my head yesterday and only focused on my face. After much thought, I decided to either go back to using my multiblade on my head or alternate days with my DE.

Due to my water heater acting up after a couple of power outages during yesterday's thunderstorms. I couldn't shave my head in the shower, so tonight after a cold shower. I decided to shave my head a second time with my DE in the sink.

Intially only have my head, actually gave me a calm demenor about this shave. I lathered up with Tri-coastal White Birch and Tobacco butter. I did three passes, WTG, ATG and XTG. I took my time, swith hands when needed and the result...Wait for it!

An amazing close head shave with no nicks or cuts. I even amazed myself. I rinsed my head with cold water under the shower spicket. I finished with tea tree spray and Dove Care Men's moisturizer.

Yul Brenner, Telly Savales and Mr. Clean eat your heart's out. I'm gorgeously handsome.

Whew! Another small victory.
Look Ma, I'm wet shaving, I'm wet shaving...

That's amazing, Austinoire. Most would consider a head shave more difficult than a shave of the beard.

I think you're getting it!

Ive been head shaving for 15+ years......never have and never will use a de. I find the gillette fusion the perfect tool for that.

All i can say is that youre very brave lol

The headshave is a difficult one, so congrats on making it work. I have found that slicker lathers are better for the head, though a little cushion is nice, and you definitely have to learn to hold the razor in some interesting grips to get the blade where you need it. And then there's the larger area, totally different growth patterns, constant curving of different areas.... At any rate, I also headshave with a double edge, mostly in the shower, and have found a few non-lather products to make a daily shave manageable, since less cushion is less of a problem for me when headshaving. I also save my nicer supplies for the weekend that way, when I can take the time to really get into it.
