Shaving head is like shaving face, you have to pre-treat the interested party and pay attention when you use the razor.
Bullfrog has some tips for you for an impeccable headshave:
1. SHORTEN THE HAIR
If it’s been a while since you shave or if it’s the first time, we recommend to shorten the hair to improve the fluidity of the razor. You can use a clipper and shorten the hair at 1/2 mm at most.
2. TAKE A HOT SHOWER
A hot shower is the best solution to prepare the head for a shave: soften the hair and relax the skin favouring a better fluidity of the razor and avoiding annoying accidents.
3. SOFTEN THE HAIR WITH AN OIL
The hair need to be softened before to get shaved. Use a All-in-one Beard Oil to soften the hair and make the shaving more confortable.
4. WHIPS THE CREAM
Whips the shaving cream with the brush, using the right amount of water. The perfect foam doesn’t exist , you have to test it and understand which is the perfect consistency. Remember that the beard is mainly a matter of sensations. If you are in vacation and you don’t have a bowl you can use a glass or a breakfast cup.
5. USE A MULTIBLADE RAZOR
Shaving head can irritate the skin, especially if you pass many times the razor on the scalp. An efficient solution can be to use a multiblade razor, this allow you to have a perfectly shaved head in few rubs.
6. SHAVE IN FRONT OF A MIRROR
Shave in front of a mirror, especially if it’s the first time you shave! Begin from the most visible parts like the front and the sides and then pass to the back of the head shaving slowly and gently.
7. SHAVE AGAINST THE GRAIN
If you have alrealdy shaved your head or if you don’t have a sensible skin, wet again the head with hot water, pass the All-in-one Beard Oil and begin to shave against the grain. If it’s the first time, we reccomend you to avoid the shaving against the grain if you don’t want to irritate excessively the skin.
8. ENJOY A COLD TOWEL
This is the relief time, enjoy an after shaving cold towel on your head! Take a towel and put it into the fridge if you can, otherwise ask for ice in the bar and put the towel in a bowl with ice and cold water!
9. RINSE THE HEAD
Shaving can leave waste of hair and shaving cream, rinse the head with cold water to clean your head!
10. HYDRATE THE HEAD
