thanks for the tip. I've seen how much the hair grows and it's not noticable before I shave it at all, but I feel like it's weird; I liked the smooth feel better, and I'm used to this back when I used to shave my beard, but on the head it hits differently.
Well, there's a fair number of people here like that yes, and back home as well (Syrian not Polish). I feel like it's common in the people I see

, after you get in a routine, you'll have to decide how often you shave. Alot of guys go 2 or 3 days between shaves. With my white hair, you can't even see it before 4 days or more, but I don't like the stubble, so I shave daily. Many of us like the feel of a totally smooth head, so we shave every day. I'm glad you are liking the baldie life so far, after 30 days you will be hooked!
Are there alot of headshavers in Poland? It's now a very common/popular style here.

I don't usually get nicks but when I do, I just use the electric until it heals. Nobody likes nicks but when I do get one, I do the best I can.
Same here. When I do cut myself it's usually because I'm putting too much pressure on the blade instead of letting the razor do the work. Also, when I cut myself I resort to the styptic pencil. It burns a bit initially but it does stop the bleeding. That spot you cut looks like it's right on the crown. Thats a bad spot. My worst cut ever was right about that same spot and it's what got me using an M-5 Magnum and dumping the HeadBlade.

A few years ago I decided to grow my hair out and do a Larry Finklestein type ponytail. After about 6 months my hair had grown about an inch, and I looked like I was 90. So I went back to shaving and been doin' it ever since.
I did have a younger woman (probably 30s) guess that I was early 50s. My next birthday is my 71st.

I just use some conditioner on my scalp. Seems to work great althogh it doens' have to cooling or the scent effect but at lease i get to press down hard and no nicks. Whatever works , works.
Haha, I haven't used conditioner since I had hair. You're right, though, about whatever works, works. Part of it for me is I felt like I needed a hobby that I could do indoors.

That sounds like some great stuff you got going, Buddha
A big advantage to it is the longer I make my own soap the cheaper it gets. I get 4 good sized bars per pound of the glycerin base so 20 bars per block. A 5 pound block goes for $15-20 When I compare that to Dr. Bronner's Castille Soap with the same scent I'm spending about 1/4-1/5 the cost per bar.

Yup, it's going well, maybe a bit weird before I shave; the hair growing feels weird af lol, and I'm getting used to the hat. And definetly taking it off when I'm indoors.
Also, got a not-so-bad beard, so that's looking well with the shave. But planning to grow it more, I think it would look better
Got any suggestions on products (head and beard wise - eu available)?

Well, I've read that in the other posts, and I'm planning to do so too.
And honestly, I'm starting to like it, and with the way my hair fell out, it's impossible to pull it any other way. Planning on keeping it smooth for now!
The only downside is that wearing a winter hat now feels very weird, so I'm learning to embrace it now lol (winter in Poland, what can u do :|)
I have a stocking cap that is made from extremely smooth fibers and it feels really wonderful on a clean shaven head

Well there are a lot of nerves in our scalp and associated areas of skin that contribute to headaches.
I have suffered from headaches for years and people suggested that I get a daith piercing in one or both of my ears and that it can help I thought they were crazy but I did it and they were right! It seems to work along the same principle as acupressure. I still get headaches but not nearly as often and not nearly as severe.

I find that if I try to shave every day I never get a good shave. So having almost colorless hair anyway I can get away with shaving it two or three times a week and that way I get a smoother Shave.
I scrub my scalp thoroughly with hot water in the shower . Then I get out of the shower use a few drops of shaving oil on my scalp and then a layer of shaving cream. I then shave my head with a good multi blade razor.
