Shaving head...

I couldn’t find a thread in the search about shaving heads. (Insert sex joke here).

What do people around here use?

I started using a Braun after wet shaving for years. I once used the head blade and it’s great, then the Mach 3 from Gillette as well.

I recently bought an andis tin foil shaver and am amazed at the closeness of the shave. I do get major razor burn from this device, but that’s the trade off of a close shave.

What does everyone use around here? Why can’t Nair make a product that isn’t basically like dioxin?

Thank you.

Some of us are hair challenged. But we make up for it with other, remarkable physical attributes.

You guys should check out the andis tin foil razor. It’s a closer shave than the Braun.

Gillette 5 blade razor if I go too long between electric shaving.

For the electric, I use a Panasonic Arc5 electric wet/dry razor.

Mach 3, been using it for years. I keep the blade in a cup of alcohol in between shaves so that it stays sharp longer.

HeadBlade ATX. I tried the Headblade Moto. That was a huge mistake. Sticking with the ATX

I recommend the following product over the andis tin foil shaver. I tried the andis and it gave me irritation as well. The wahl superclose does not give me irritation.


Wahl Professional 5-Star Series Rechargeable Shaver/Shaper #8061-100 - Up to 60 Minutes of Run Time - Bump-Free, Ultra-Close Shave https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01EG4G7BQ..._JEDsEbJ7K7NNG

I also got laser hair removal on my head, front of my neck and side burns. Before laser hair removal I would get ingrown hairs on my neck and it would constantly be irritated. After laser hair removal no more irritation. No more ingrown hairs. And very smooth.

Did you get the ultra close version or the regular version. One version has “extra close foil..”
