It’s a myth that your mother’s father is to blame for hair loss
Whether you’re looking for a solution to your thinning hair or simply ready for a new look, shaving your head is a no-hassle way to look great. Get started by using hair clippers to trim your hair short. Then achieve the rest of your new look by following these tips:
Hydrate your skin in the shower for several minutes to ensure that your hair is as pliable as possible.
Use a good shave gel, not bar soap. Shave gel tends to be less drying than ordinary bar soap and water, and it won’t clog your razor the way soap can. Shave gel prevents water from evaporating, while keeping hair soft, resulting in smoother razor glide and less tugging of the hair.
A high-quality razor will give you a closer shave, extending the time between shaves.
Shave with light, gentle strokes—your razor should do the work, not you. Start shaving with the grain. Then, if necessary, go against the grain for an even closer shave.
Start shaving from front to back, and then shave the sides of your scalp. Use a hand mirror and a wall-mounted mirror to get the best view of the back of your head.
Let the razor do the work, not you. That’s the best way to get the smoothest, closest shave.
A noncomedogenic facial moisturizer won’t clog your pores, which will lessen your chances of breakouts, and will protect your scalp from dryness and flaking.
