In this article we are going to share our top 10 list making up the best moisturizer for your bald head.
So you have taken the plunge and decided to shave your head, and for that I congratulate you!
No more worrying about going bald.
No more stressing about whether you can get your hair to grow back again.
You are now officially on your way to embracing baldness 100%.
But with a great bald head comes great responsibilities.
You need to start looking after your newly bald head, otherwise you are going to pay for it in the long run.
All of a sudden your bare skin is exposed to sunlight, to the cold.
It can feel irritated, and it can get dry.
And what’s one of the best ways to take good care of the skin on top of your new crown?
Moisturize it on a daily basis!
Early on in my bald journey, I never thought about ever using a moisturizer for a bald head.
I mean, it just wasn’t something I thought I ever needed!
Once you take the step and shave your head, your bald head will become exposed to more pollutants, air borne toxins, allergens and even weather elements such as extreme heat and extreme cold. These all directly affect our shaved head.
Being exposed to these elements above will cause dryness, irritations and other skin related problems to your bald head.
So if you are wondering what is the best moisturizer for bald head, then keep scrolling.
You are in the right place!
5 Important Considerations To Note About Moisturizers For Your Bald Head
Below are a few things to take into consideration before you pick a good moisturizer for your bald head.
1. Is It Organic?
Using a moisturizer that is organic and contains little to no chemicals is the best for our shaved head.
When possible, always try and go organic.
2. Available In Many Different Forms?
The good thing about moisturizers is that they are available in plenty of different forms.
These can range from creams, oils and gels, giving you plenty of options and variety to make your purchase decision.
3. When Is Best Time To Use Moisturizer?
The best time to apply your moisturizer would be directly after your morning shower once, you have dried and washed your head.
This has been proven to be the most effective and efficient time to apply moisturizer, as your scalp will be able to absorb it best without it being hindered by dirt and dust particles.
Another good time is right before bed after taking a shower.
4. How Often Should You Apply Moizturiser?
Most products recommend you apply moisturizer once or twice a day maximum (after your morning and evening shower is best).
That should be enough frequency to keep your bald head in tip top shape!
5. Does It Include a SPF?
Personally, I prefer a moisturizer which also includes SPF. This way you get both protection from the sun and your scalp is kept moist!
