While I've been shaving my head for more than 5 years, my skills have stalled. The sides and top of my head are easy, even though I have lots of side and back hair growth. When I get to the back of my head, where I have to use two mirrors to see what I'm doing, I'm often left with a lot of stubble -- especially compared to the sides which are billiard-ball smooth. What are the secrets for getting good results in the back?
I use a range of razors -- Omnishaver, the Defender, the Gillette Guard --which is cool and came from India because it's not sold in the US. And I use both slick hair conditioner and canned shave foam. (I know;I know. I have enjoyed using a shave brush and puck, but my shave process is already quite involved and going old-school makes it take more time.)
Sometimes I go two weeks without a headshave, which I'm sure makes the whole project more challenging.
