7 Secrets for the Best Shave
Choose your fighter
The type of razor you use to achieve your closest shave is crucial to the quality of your results. When it comes to a hairless head, your best bet is an electric razor. Not only are electric razors easiest for personal use but they also:Minimize irritation or cuts
- Minimize irritation or cuts
- Save time
- Require minimal clean up
- Are portable & easily accessible
When deciding which electric razor is best for you, it’s important to consider power, convenience and durability. After all, you deserve nothing but the best. That’s why we recommend the BaldiePro.
With a 10,000 RPM motor, advanced lithium battery and SmoothShave technology, Groomie’s groundbreaking gadget has everything a shaver needs to achieve perfection.
Keep it Clean
You know what they say – cleanliness is next to baldie-ness.
To properly prep for your closest shave, you should make sure your scalp is free of dirt and residue. Any build-up of dry skin will prevent your razor from close contact with your scalp.
For the most purifying wash, we recommend using a natural, conditioning cleanser free of harsh ingredients. Some specific ingredients to avoid in all skincare are:
- Artificial fragrances
While using your cleanser, we recommend lathering with warm or hot water. This will soften your skin, open your pores, relax your hair follicles and minimize risk of friction while shaving.
A slick surface will get you one step closer to being a well-groomed man. By using a pre-shave oil before you shave, a protective barrier is created between your scalp and the razor blade.
Not only will it minimize the risk of burns and nicks, but also infuse a bit of moisture to prevent itchiness post-shave.
As mentioned, the best skincare products for you and your shave are free of harsh ingredients. That’s why our favorite Natural Pre-Shave Oil includes:
- Antioxidant milk thistle seed
- Essential fatty acids
- Vitamin E
With ingredients like these, you’ll be smoother than a baby’s bottom in no time!
Grab a Fresh Blade
The quality of your blade will make or break your shave.
Did you know that the skin on your head is even more sensitive than the skin on your face? That’s why using a clean, sharp blade is crucial to getting the closest shave. Not only will a dull blade cause irritation but also
- Tug your skin
- Cause cuts
- Carry dead skin and dirt
If you’re using the BaldiePro, we recommend you switch to a fresh blade after 100 shaves for maximum hygiene & performance. Luckily, always having a new blade on hand is effortless when you join the Groomie Club and benefit from automatic refills.
The Grain 101
Now, for our topic of debate: to go with or against the grain. To decide which method is best for you, understanding the benefits of both is key.
Shaving with the grain of your hair pattern is less aggressive on the skin and minimizes risk for irritation and razor burn. Shaving against the grain gets your razor blade closest to the root of your hair, leaving you with the cleanest shave.
Luckily, if you’re using the BaldiePro, you get the best of both worlds. This device is properly used by moving the blade in circular motions against your head, going both with and against the grain.
Its ergonomic design and ability to shave both wet and dry protect your scalp from any risk of irritation and deliver the closest shave every time. If you’re not using an electric razor like the BaldiePro, keeping your skin hydrated is key to reducing irritation caused by conventional razors.
Without any hair to form a protective barrier between your scalp and the natural world, you’ll be extra susceptible to dry skin. Dandruff is guaranteed to prevent you from achieving the silky smooth scalp you deserve.
One of the best ways to prevent drying skin on your scalp is by keeping the surface hydrated and infusing moisture with quality skincare. We find that the best way to stay on top of moisturizing is by integrating this step into your daily shave routine.
A Natural Aftershave Serum can save your scalp from drying skin and get you one step closer to your best shave. Simply massage into your skin post-shave to nourish and tone with natural benefits of witch hazel & calendula.
With a healthy, hydrated scalp, your razor will have closer contact with your skin and leave you with the closest shave possible.
The Enemy: UV Rays
When your goal is getting your bald head to look its best, understanding the importance of skincare is key. UV rays are proven to damage skin and will reduce your chances of achieving the closest shave.
By adding a daily sunscreen application into your routine, you will decrease your chances of sun damage by 50%. Overlooking this secret to the closest shave will significantly raise your risk of:
- Age spots
- Skin cancer
With flaws like these, getting the closest shave is going to be much more difficult. That’s why it’s important to avoid sun exposure and protect your scalp from harsh UV rays.
By wearing sunscreen or a hat when outdoors, you raise your chances of getting the closest shave with minimal effort.
After taking these simple steps to getting the closest shave, you’ll feel a whole lotta love for your new polished look. Getting more skin in the game means uncovering your confidence, looking great and feeling better than ever!
