No Shadow Shave
« on: August 30, 2023, 11:45:30 AM »
My summer tan recently caught up to my head and yesterday it looked like i had to no hair shadow for a couple of hours after shaving, photo attached below, looked and felt great. I even had one of my buddies tell me it would be weird to see me with hair now. Great day!

Darker skin and lighter hair color really help with reduced shadow.  Now that my hair is almost completely white, I can remain nearly shadow free for 48 hours.  After that, it looks like white specs on my head - where I still have hair.

I suppose for dark skinned guys, the white hair may stand out more.

@cmac the head looks great. Agreed on that you canít see a shadow. Just use sunscreen. I hate covering my bald head with a hat!

@slybeard my hair is silvery and I canít see a shadow at all on the day I shave and the day after. However by day 2 of skipping, itís all silver specs. Like a fungus.  It looks terrible.

I started laser hair removal in May.  All of my dark hair is gone except a couple of small spots.  I went a few days without shaving and my wife said the white hair looked like frost.

I wish I could go 3 or 4 days between shaves, but I just hate the stubble, and love to feel of a freshly shaved head. I would definitely consider laser hair removal if my hair wasn't white. With all the advances in technology, you would think they would find a way to permanently eliminate white hair!

What does a layered head have the same feel as a freshly shaved head?  I wonder?

@Semi-Sly , that's a good question. I just assumed if they kill the hair follicle, the head would be smooth. Just like the top of the head on guys that go bald on top. Let's hear from some of our friends that have had the procedure!

I had my 4th session of laser hair removal two weeks ago.  Iím 60 years old with a lot of grey.  Most of my dark hair is gone.  Iíve noticed a general thinning all over my head and would say 50% of my hair is gone.  There is none to speak of on the nape of my neck.  The top has thinned out significantly.   My technician turned up the setting the last time and the pain level went up with it.  Because of the grey, Iím not expecting 100% reduction, but Iím happy with the results so far.  Itís much easier to shave my head now and my scalp is a lot smoother.
