Foil Shavers
« on: October 19, 2020, 07:03:34 AM »
Hi Guys.
Intermittently I will shave my head with a foil shaver.
Bought a cheapy in 2008 and it is still going strong.

I like the single foil as it cuts the hair very close to the skin.
I do not get the same results with a dual foil.

Anybody else using a foil shaver?

Hi Clute, yes, I have a Remington triple head foil shaver. I believe it's discontinued, but I still buy replacement bblades/screens for about $12.

I shave daily and the stubble on my sides and back grow flat against the head and is hard to shave with a razor. So I use the foil before my shower. The top grows straight up, so the razor cuts that fine, and I hit the sides and back with the razor too.
Bald by choice, and loving it!

For the longest time I was using a braun 3 but then I started using a de and now I'm addicted to the de to the point where the foil just sits there now.

I use a Remington triple head foil shaver when I travel or if I am in a rush and need to shave on the go.

I must admit, these foil shavers have come a long way over the years.  I remember back when these things could only be used for a dry shave but now they have wet/dry rechargeable shavers and I'm like WOW, things have changed so much!  I started out using one and I really miss it.    O0

It's a bit pricey, but the BabyLiss Pro does a great job of getting it smooth. However, when I travel, I take my Andis, which still does a solid job. I would say I don't feel any stubble worth worrying about until about 48 hours after using the BabyLiss.

Do you get any irritation with it? How to prevent that? What after shave care do you follow?

Thinking of getting the Andis...

Thanks

 I just make sure that my skin is very clean and very dry you donít want to be oil on the skin or it makes the foil stick and then the hairs will pull.   A light dusting of powder is also a great way to dry scalp and to give 1000,000 ball bearings for the foil to ride upon.
