Selecting a good razor is the single best thing you can do to prevent your skin from becoming irritated. Good razors will buzz close to the skin (wet or dry) without breaking the surface, removing all hair and preventing all ingrown ones.
If you travel often, or equally, if you’re on the go, opting for a lightweight razor with a good charge would be most optimal for you. Although there are two types of razors, traditional or electrical, traditional (read: manual) shavers will not be strong enough for the head. Electrical shavers however, are way less forgiving and better for beginners. Plus, nearly all electrical shavers can work on your face and head — preventing you from buying two separate razors and saving you coins.
And if you’re still on the fence from buzzing or shaving your head, we get it. It’s a big decision but one that you’ll appreciate for the lack of maintenance (and product) and minimization of bad hair days. Not to mention, having more hair during the warmer months makes life a bit hotter than usual. It’s important to know that it does take some maintenance, as you’ll want to keep the look fresh and sharp, it will require nearly daily shaving or a couple times a week. This is because, when the hair becomes too long, the razor will snag and start to miss hair.
Whether you are shaving your head for style points or because your hair is thinning, we have just the razor for you ahead.
