What made you STAY bald?
« on: October 20, 2021, 03:27:04 PM »
We posted alot of what made you go bald, so what made you decide to keep shaving your head?

When I first shaved my head, it,was intended to be only one time to see what it was like. By the end of the first day, my (then) honey told me she loved my bald head and thought I should keep it! After a couple days, I posted a photo on Facebook, and got nearly all positive comments. So I kept it shaved for a few months. Then I got tired of shaving, and attempted to grow my hair back several times. After a week or two, I would miss the smooth shaved head, and shave it all again!

That was eight years ago, and I only try growing it back once or twice a year. I think I made it 7 or 8 weeks one time. So, why do I always go back to bald? Well, I don't like how I look with the short white hair. I think it makes me look older. I also miss the daily shaving routine, and a super smooth head. The hardest think is seeing other guys with a sharp looking shaved head, I get what I refer to as bald envy. I only feel well groomed with a sly head. What's your story?

1.  I like the look and feel .
2.  I find it the easiest way to maintain some form of hair cut . Every one two or three days ,depending on time of year. Much easier than a buzz cut every two or three weeks. Clean up after a buzz cut is time consuming.
3.  I use the Dollar Tree 5 for a buck disposable razors 10 shaves a razor . My cost next to nothing.
4.  Shave my head in ten minutes  before a shower , very little time needed to shave.
5.  In winter I use the Skull Shaver it takes all of three minutes.
If only all men lived by the "Golden Rule ."

It keeps me looking neat and clean.  Besides that, it's fun to shave!  Everybody seems to like my look and I don't have to worry about bad haircuts or getting debris in my hair anymore.

I was always intrigued by the shave head look.  The smooth feel and the look in the mirror motivate me to keep it that way.

Some people say I look more intimidating with a shaved head and beard, and I kind of like that as well.

I shaved my head for the first time about five years ago, staying bald off and on for the next three years.  Iíve pretty much kept myself bald for the past two years.   Whenever Iíd let my hair grow back, I would constantly want to shave it again.   I guess itís an OCD thing.  I like the feel of a freshly shaven head and the look as well.  Iím committed to staying bald for life.

@chuck63 , I think you're absolutely right. I must be OCD or some kind of addicted to shaving. Even if I want to grow my hair, I have to go back to the smooth head! I guess we could have a worse compulsion.

It's not that I feel dirty without shaving, but there is no better clean feeling after a BBS headshave!

Youíre right, reddog. If it didnít irritate my skin Iíd probably shave twice a day.  A smooth scalp feels a lot better than that sandpaper feeling after a dayís growth.

Right, @chuck63 , many nights I go to bed and think I'm not going anywhere tomorrow so I really don't need to shave. Of course the next morning I can't wait to get in the shower and shave it smooth!

I just went to my local Menards home store, and I noticed about 1/3 of the guys over 50 were proudly sporting great looking shaved heads. I think many of the guys that shaved their heads when the barbershops were closed, decided to keep it smooth. I got a couple bald brother head nods.

I keep it shaved because i love the feeling of a smooth dome.  I also shave out of habit. I get in the shower and shave. Itís my morning routine and if I skip a day Iím ok with it (sort of LOL), but if I skip two daysÖ..i gotta break out the razor. I really donít like my silver, grey stubble. It looks messy.

I also keep it shaved because itís who I am now. A bald guy. It was a brave act to first shave my head. And in a way braver to keep it shaved. My bald head is in a way of badge of courage to me and i wear it proudly. So i keep shaving for that. Why turn back?

There are several reasons I think for my decision
1. I think I look good, I have a nice shaped head, so it doesn't look so awkward.
2. The love of my life likes me this way,  and she is very encouraging.
3. The people that are close to me, seem to accept it.
4. The easiness and the feel of it

I think that those are the most important reasons.

I am committed to baldness because itís who I am now. Iím a bald man. Iíve had extensive laser removal done for that reason ó I donít intend to ever have hair again, even if someone discovered a ďcureĒ for baldness. I worried about going bald for a long time and once it started, I just skipped straight to the end of the process. I feel so much better and I think I look much better as a bald man. But regardless, itís part of my identity now. Hair would feel weird.

I don't have much of a choice and can't go three days without shaving because of the flaking which I try to get rid of by applying lotion to my scalp but then I feel so dirty.  When I was younger I didn't get this flaking but now I do so the best thing for me to do is to keep it shaven and clean.

The feeling of my smooth scalp and that being bald makes me look more masculine and intimidating.
