Freezing cold in the northeast
« on: January 11, 2022, 09:44:30 AM »
Itís been in the teens and low 20s here in NJ. Winter is finally here  >:( and Iím having to wear a winter knit hat out to keep my head warm. Putting it on is a bit like Velcro in the morning walking the dogs. But all is good after a shower and shave.

I got a new newsboy cap a couple weeks ago. So I have a new option to keep my head warm. Itís kinda funny walking up to the register with a bald head buying a hat. I felt a bit sheepish.  :/O So I handed it to my partner at the last second and said jokingly ďcashiers always make fun of bald guys buying a hatĒ. He just looked at me like ďfor realĒ. So I got an extra Christmas gift and I bought him lunch. I really just wanted to take advantage of his Kohls discount.
 
Any funny hat stories?

Cold is right, been -20 degrees in Minnesota! Knit hats won't stay on my head if I just shaved, so when it snows over night I don't shave until after snow blowing.

I have discovered a simple pleasure when it's really cold. I usually take showers, but sometimes I'll skip a day shaving and next day take a long hot bath. Super hot water and I use my double edge safety razor to shave while soaking in the tub. At some point, I drain some water and add more hot water. Very relaxing and a super smooth bald head!
Bald by choice, and loving it!

Nothing like a hot bath on a cold winters day. I donít take advantage of that enough. Iíve never shaved while in the tub. I may have to try that!

I just wear my toke outside.  I can't take a bath anymore because I can't get out of the tub without help so showers will have to do for now.  I've been shaving with my electric this winter.  In the warmer months, I use my razor.  My scalp seems to be softer in the winter and nicks pretty easily.  My doctor goes mental if I get a nick on my head.  He doesn't seem to care if I get a nick on my face though.  I never get nicks in the summer months for some reason.

For those who have to deal with cold winters, splurge and by an alpaca cap. Alpaca is super soft, itch-free, and much denser than wool, so it keeps your head very warm.  Because it denser than wool, it's more wind resistant.  Better yet, it's very light.  My wife gave me one as a Christmas gift a couple years ago and I couldn't make it through the winter without it.

I live in the southeast and our winters are pretty mild.  For several years, I grew my hair out in the winter several years because I thought it would keep me warmer.   Iíve kept myself shaved over the past couple of years and realized that thereís not much difference between a buzz cut and a bald head as far as warmth goes.  Again, we donít get too many days below 30 degrees.  I was walking the other day with a temperature in the 30s and had to pull the hoodie over my head to keep warm.  Speaking of walking thereís a young lady with a shaved head that walks in the neighborhood.  Sheís bald by choice because sometimes her hair has grown out to a short buzz.  You donít see too many bald girls out there.
