General Discussion / Re: How to get a man bun
« Last post by Razor X on October 03, 2022, 08:42:33 PM »

Regarding men dying their hair, I worked with a guy who was in his late 60's and he had jet black hair or so it seemed for about a week every month.  Then the gray started to reappear.  He would never admit to dying his hair, yet, like a miracle the gray would disappear again!

I can understand why some men want to dye their hair, but it is almost always a mistake.

Advantages and Disadvantages to being Bald / Re: Needing to get the hats out

I just got all my various winter hats washed and ready to go! Although I don't like wearing hats and I like the cold air on my head. When I have to wear a hat, it always comes off when I enter a building, gotta show off that smooth noggin. Won't be long and I'll be wearing a hoodie to bed. My head gets cold during the night!

I know what you mean!  I have been holding off wearing a hat because I like the feeling of cool air on my bald head.  It's been unusually cool for this time of year where I live (it was 45 degrees this morning at 7:00 when I took the dog out) and I was tempted to put on a cap, but I held off again.

When I saw the young guy's little ponytail, I laughed to myself and thought "you are only fooling yourself because anyone walking behind you can see the bald spot peeking out".  But it's his choice!

I find hats to be a love hate relationship. I really donít like covering my bald head - except for those sunny days to avoid burning. But the cooler weather and greyer skies itís nice to go hatless in the Fall. I love the chill on my head. This morning was an exception. I hate cold raindrops hitting my head! I love snow hitting my bald headÖ.but raindrops are annoying.

Safety Razor Head Shaving / Re: The best DE Safety Razor on the Planet

Good points, @clint902. Using any razor or even an electric shaver, you will appear shaved bald to others. Like me, it's all about having a super smooth, stubble free feel. Yes, us guys with white hair can go several days without shaving and still look shaved, but I have to be totally smooth. I guess we are our greatest critics when it comes to our baldness!

I have a ton of razor blades I need to use up but maybe another time, I'll take you up on that offer.
I think guys are comparing the de to a cartridge in which there is really no comparison.  In the end, will anyone notice if the hair is short or shorter?  I keep my head smooth, in fact if it got any smoother, it would be burned.  If a day or two goes by and I don't shave, I doubt that anyone would notice.

I couldn't find the razor blades.  I thought you were talking about the blades.

They went to a blade manufacturer in India and private labeled their own brand. Apparently they tested many brands and this company produced a blade that had the best profile and extreme tolerances they they use. I have a 100 pack. Love them. If you want I can send a link that would get you a free 100 pk when you buy a razor.

Cheers.

Okay, I received my AL-13 about 3 weeks ago and, believe it or not, there was a learning curve to prevent my dome from looking like a rotten strawberry after a shave. In the past, with cartridge razors, I got used to shaving against the grain, especially on the sides and the back, (Not much going on up top). So I reverted to the whole "against the grain" thing, and, VOILA!. The strawberry look had made a painful comeback.
What I then experimented with was shaving with the grain, which I found to be less than effective. Not much cutting of hair and I must, subconsciously, have a yen for inflicting physical punishment on myself for perceived past wrongs because my response was to press harder. That led to a week or so using the old  so as not to disrupt the body's natural instinct to create scabs to prevent exsanguination. Then I decided to go horizontal so my shaving satisfaction could go vertical. Not with the grain, not against the grain, but, kind of across the grain. That was the secret for me. No cuts or scrapes, no irritated skin, and a nice close shave.
I started off using Feather DEs and I have a few different varieties of blades but unless I notice a perceivable difference between the current blades and any other just assume that everything is going fine.
Thanks to sellitman for bringing this razor into the light. Good find! Kudos, sir.

I shave down, then sideways, then on my third pass up. After that I spot shave areas that I missed. The result is baby butt smooth all over. Having fun with shave soaps now. Phoenix Shaving of Arizona has a real nice offering. Bought a sweet brush off of them and now I'm in shave nirvana.

Cheers!
