Shaving Your Head the Right Way

Shaving your head for the first time might be intimidating. After all, shaving your own face without burn, bumps, redness, nicks, or cuts can be challenging enough. Becoming an expert at shaving your head requires patience and practice. Here are some tips to help you become an expert at shaving.

​​Warm wash

Before you start your shave, wash your scalp with warm water. This will open up your pores and relax your skin. Shaving after a warm shower is ideal because your skin is calm and loose.

Exfoliate, exfoliate, exfoliate

Exfoliate your scalp regularly to avoid the build-up of dead skin and dirt. Exfoliating also massages your outer dermis and helps loosen your hair follicles so that there is less resistance when you shave.

HeadShed pre-shave exfoliating scrub will prepare you for your best shave. It can be used every few days to keep your scalp clean.

Take it easy

You don’t need to apply a lot of pressure to get a close shave. Take it slow and glide your razor over the surface of your head. Start from the top center of your head, shaving downward along the grain of your hair in each direction. Each stroke should be short and steady, and the razor should be rinsed regularly. If you encounter an area of looser skin around the neck, pull the skin tight with your free hand as you shave.

Shaving cream over soap

It may seem easier to shave with whatever soap they have on hand, but shave cream really does make all the difference. Shave creams incorporated ingredients that soothe the skin and reduce friction, unlike soap which can have ingredients that irritate the skin.

Stay sharp

Your razor blade becomes duller with each use. Changing your razor between shaves will reduce snagging and pulling at your hairs. The American Academy of Dermatologists recommends changing razors every 5-7 shaves for the smoothest shave.

Keep it clean

While keeping your razor in the shower may seem safe, the moisture can cause your blades to dull and rust at an accelerated rate. When you’re done shaving, pat your razor dry with a clean towel and store in a place where it won’t get wet.

On the other hand, your scalp needs moisture after your shave. Dry skin quickly becomes irritated and red, so applying a moisturizer regularly will maintain a beautiful and healthy scalp.
