Sometimes I use my Remington 3 blade foil electric shaver. Yes, I can use it everyday, and it's ALMOST as close as a razor. Never any irritation.
Bald by choice, and loving it!

My bad guys for not follwing up with y'all I've been busy. I now use the Andis T-Outliner and I bought a modified blade so it shaves the hair down very very tight. Just about a day's worth of growth. I use it on my customers all the time and I also use my Wahl 5 Star Shaver if my customers doesn't want a straight razor shave but wants their head bald. Plus Reddog the BBC fits you well!

In the barber school I attend we have switched from the Wahl 5 star to the Andis foil shaver.  They are more reliable.  I use them every day on clients and they shave heads really well.

Do they shave really close? Like a one day stubble? or less?

Yes, they do.  Not quite as close as a blade, but like three hours after a blade shave.

I've been wanting to try a foil shaver as an occasional alternative to a blade, so following the good advice here I picked up an Andis Profoil Lithium. Just tried it and I'm very impressed with the tight, smooth result, almost blade close.

I did notice some friction between shaver and my dry head, causing some minor tugging and skipping of the shaver. Should I be using a product like Williams Lectric Shave for a pre-shave conditioner? This is all new territory for me so what do you recommend as a skin treatment for foil shaving?

Thanks guys.
