Title: How often do you shave your head?
Post by: Nikki on July 06, 2015, 04:08:25 PM
Since I've started razor shaving a few weeks ago,I've noticed that I have to shave my head twice a week to keep it maintained,since my hair grows back so fast.

Every day. I like the smoothness.

I shave mine daily too. I love having that smoothness and also would have to shave about every two days anyway since mine grows pretty fast in some places.

I like to keep it really smooth, so the Fusion gets used daily.

Often twice.

Post by: slybeard on July 06, 2015, 09:05:23 PM
My preference is daily, but sometimes in a time crunch I will skip a day or two.  I can get by with it since it is gray and white, but I like it smooth.

About every 16 hours give or take. Had to slack off due to a car accident, hoping to get back at it in the next day or so.

As for me, prior to my procedure, I shaved anywhere from three to six days (lazy). Now I have no choice but to go three days max between shaves or it won't look good.

P.S. Bald Metalhead, hoping and praying for a speedy recovery, sorry that happened to you.

I shave everywhere between 1-3 days, I get a little lazy, and most of my hair is pretty fine so not so obvious, plus at the moment with cold temperatures in winter, my whole work-day I've been wearing a beanie, so during the week, not many chances for people to see my regrowth

Post by: theebaldguy on July 12, 2015, 05:21:59 PM
I would love to shave every day, but I'm just too lazy. Sometimes I shave only once a week. I need to get back to shaving daily, it looks so much better.

I've been shaving every other day. I hate stubble day but I'm gonna go broke on razors and shaving cream. I don't have the upfront investment for a DE setup or I'd be using that daily.

The Microtouch DE razor is on sale at WalMart for $20 and it comes with 12 Dorco blades, if you're looking for a starter DE kit for a reasonable price. Just a suggestion, if your current method works, don't change it.

I find my mach3 heads last at least 3 weeks of every other day, I'm not sure I could do double edge, seems too easy to cut my scalp

I shave every other day and sometimes every three days unless I'm going somewhere where I need to look my best, then I shave regardless. I like my dome to be smooth as possible in those situations.

At this stage for me, it's every third day.  Once the stubble is becoming too long, it's time to go back to the bathroom and shave it down.

I shave every other day.....I would really like to shave every day, but my wallet will not allow the expense on additional razors / blades.

I have been told by another bald brother, though, that I do need to maintain the look & any expense is definitely worth it.

I'm BBC and it's hard to shave daily since the shave took me about 45 mins to 1 hour (or more) to shave it seem completely bald with ATG, because I'm newbie I think. So I shave mine on Mon Wed and Fri.
I used the same blade of Mach 3 for 2 weeks already, tried double blade razor for 2 times and found it easier to cut my scalp so I keep using my old Mach 3. Any suggestions on shaving and blade? I want to improve the shaving time.

Lately it's been about every second or third day. I've not been a daily shaver for a while now, though every so often I will shave each day depending on my schedule and what's going on in life.

Developed a convoluted routine. Shaving in the morning during the working week can be an additional chore. But we all know the fresh shaved smooth head morning feel.

So I shave in the morning one day, then evening of the next day, then skip a day, then back to the morning. Every 36 hours !
Title: Re: How often do you shave your head?

Finding i like every other day shaving at the moment as i get a great shave doing it this way and it saves my skin of being scraped constantly!
Title: Re: How often do you shave your head?
Post by: Nyoxios on August 17, 2015, 01:32:43 PM
I basically want to shave every other day. Like shave monday --> Wednesday again.

People around me seem to not see the difference between 2 or 3 days, so when I feel lazy I just wait another day.

I tend to walk around without a cap the first day. I shave in the morning, the following day or 2 days I'll wear a cap when outside or at work.

I tried to shave daily for a while, but that took a lot of time and my skin wasnt too happy about it either: red spots and such. 2 days are good, and at 3 days, when cleaned the hairs are very soft and easily shaven off!

I shave every day.  To save on the expense I joined the Dollar Shave Club.  I opted for the executive model.  I get 4 new blade cartridges shipped to my home for $9 US a month.  A cartridge lasts me a week.  And I get a superior shave with them. 
Title: Re: How often do you shave your head?
Post by: Goatee on August 30, 2015, 05:48:00 AM
Every other day shaving works fine for me as i said. The difference is not massively noticeable. Plus i do benefit from having a good shave and the skin is saved from being scraped daily.

Still a relative newbie to head shaving am bald by choice, and currently obsessed with keeping it smooth as a baby's bottom at all times, so every day, sometimes twice a day,  using a headblade razor as i shower. It does get slightly irritated from doing it so often, but with the smooth obsession, i dont mind that too much, and i know eventually the newness of it will wear off and ill end up with likely an every other day routine unless im going somewhere i feel the need to be freshly shaven,  then ill do it as part of getting ready for that event.

If I can, I try for daily, but often it's every other day. I love the smoothness One day there will be a way to get rid of this hair forever, until then, it's the rigor of shaving.
Title: Re: How often do you shave your head?

Guess what, gentlemen ... I think that I have joined the every-day club.  I used to go anywhere from 2-6 days, but for the last several days, I have simply decided that I don't like the stubble.  I love the feeling of a perfectly smooth bald head.  I don't think that I'm going back to stubble.  Did anyone else have this "conversion" experience?

Being tan and having snow white hair, I can actually see the stubble every morning. Hate the stubble feel too, so I seldom skip a day of shaving.

Now that I have switched to an electric shaver rather than a blade, I am shaving myself daily.  It only takes a minute and I don't seem to mind doing it like I do with the mess of a soap and blade.
Title: Re: How often do you shave your head?
Post by: reddog on March 07, 2016, 02:40:04 PM
When I use my electric shaver, it's usually sitting on the sofa watching the morning news. On a beautiful summer morning, nice to shave while at to patio table. I have seen a guy shave his head while driving too.

Usually every third day. At my advanced age my hair is white like my beard so not very noticeable if I don't shave.  However much prefer the feel of a freshly shaved scalp and will shave again if going anywhere important. I am long retired so don't have to worry about office requirements.

I'll typically shave every day just for the smoothness. If I don't, by the second day my shirt gets caught on the stubble when I try taking it off. It seems like such a small, simple problem, but I hate it when it happens!

Sounds about right. In my 20s, I could manage 48 hours. Now, I go crazy if I don't hit it every morning. For hot dates on the weekends, I'll likely hit it before going out in the evening

I shave my head 6 days a week most weeks but I try to do it everyday. My hair is really thick and grows super fast. As I've mentioned on these boards before, I look like I have a buzz cut after 36 hours of not shaving it. So it takes longer to shave and not very fun if I were to do it every other day. But sometimes if I have the day off and have no plans to leave my residence for the day then I won't shave my head either.

By the way, I can't believe its almost been 6 months since I began shaving it!

Twice a day.

5:30pm, dry shave, just a dry razor, dry head, aftershave.

Stubble drives me insane, lol.

daily for me.  occasionally, wintertime, I'll let it go 2-3-4 days just to give the skin on top of my head a break. it's good to check on my MPB. after 4 days, I can't stand it tho. looks so stupid

Every day! So many days I think I could skip a day or two, but I get in the shower and out comes the razor. I've gotten to have any stubble at all. And even if I'm going to run a couple of errands, my head just be freshly shaved.

Before I started shaving my head, I would get a haircut about every 5 weeks, and only shave my face a couple times a week. That's why I believe headshaving becomes an obsession for some of us. But there are alot of worse obsessions you could have besides being well groomed!

Once a day shaving is not an obsession. But head shaving 2 times “every day” , I would call that an obsession.
Most head shavers just dislike that Velcro feeling. Myself included.
