Which one
« on: November 10, 2020, 06:37:09 AM »
Everytime i shave my head with a razor i get some spots.

I only go with the grain. Prepare thoroughly before. Cold water after and witch hazel. Tried mach3  and DE.

So, i am thinking of trying a different route.

Andis foil shaver

Or

Andis slimline pro trimmer with zero set blade

Which would you go for if you couldnt use a razor?

I am thinking the slimline pro would probably be less aggressive on the skin?

Any advice much appreciated

Thanks

The Slimline Pro is a trimmer, not a shaver.  So yes, it would be less aggressive.  It will give you a close buzz, not really a shave.  The foil shaver is good, I have one that I use when traveling.  It does take some time for me to use it to make sure I get my entire head shaved, so the trimmer should be faster as well.  I have had some irritation with the foil, but I normally get some irritation when I change how I shave.

So if you are OK with some stubble, the trimmer should be fine and get the job done.

Yes, stubble is fine. It can be altered to a zero gap too. Very easy looking at youtube videos.

I know its a trimmer. I was looking at it as it can be set to a zero gap. My present beard trimmer cant.

I used to have a Braun foil shaver and i used to get some irritation with that.

Thanks

I bought the trimmer. I will set it to zero and give it a try.

Tried the trimmer. Not for me. Returning it.
