Ouch !!!
« on: November 11, 2020, 01:54:50 PM »
It seemed like a good idea at the time to try and shave my head with an open razor. I won't be trying again any time soon. I'll go back to using my trusted Gilette Sensor instead

Open razor? You mean the single slit throat or the double edge?

Cut throat style (think it's called a shavette).

It looks a lot worse than it actually is. It just needs a clean up of the dried blood and will soon heal

Dont try to shave your balls!! :P

Just let it grow and let it heal it completely. Many years ago I used to wound myself in time to time.

Oh please donít try to do that again Iím a barber and even I donít like having to do face shaves with the shavette.   I know you see Guy shave them selves with a straight razor on YouTube but let me tell you if youíre not standing over the person so that you can see exactly the angle of the blade and keeping the skin at the right tension etc. etc. it is really easy to do some serious damage ,

 I am a barber and I use a triple bladed razor or or or use the electric razor  on my own head !

You look so damn good with a nice clean shave,  you donít have to prove anything to anybody by using a straight razor!

I learned the hard way 😁
It's something I won't do again. It's just a matter of waiting for things to heal and I can then shave my head again

Which electric shave do you use for your head?

 Are use the Andis lithium profile itís made by the Andis Barber tool company itís not expensive and whatís nice about it is that if the blades or the foil weíre out you can get a complete new head for only about $30 !   Once youíve charged the charge will last almost 2 weeks

2 hints  for using an electric shaver on your head :


1.  Unlike wet shaving where you want the skin to be soft and wet, when you dry shave you want the skin to be very dry and the  hair to be very dry but that doesnít mean it shouldnít be clean.  If you try shaving your head when you come home for work and thereís oil and Sebum in your pores itís not going to do a good job itís also not gonna run over your skin very well

2.   If the foil sticks to the skin try using a light coat of powder on the skin before you shave thatís what barbers do .   The powder acts to dry the skin it also acts like 1000,000 ball bearings between the foil and your skin and lets the less the foil glide smoothly
