Right, let’s get to some shaved head tips which every bald guy needs to know!
Below are just a few shaved head tips which we have discovered many bald guys tend to forget or neglect.
Make sure you are taking good care of your head.
When you get older, your scalp and skin will thank you for it!
The Best Shaved Head Tips
1. Moisturize Every Damn Day
The skin on your scalp is a lot more sensitive than any other part of your body.
When we had hair, we didn’t have to think about our scalp!
But now, your scalp is the most exposed part of your body, so it needs a bit of care.
Think about all the things your scalp is exposed to on a daily basis.
So make sure you always have a really high quality moisturizer at your reach. And don’t go for the cheap products which are made from just chemicals.
Try something high quality, which is made for your bald head. Such as our very own Bald Boss!
2. SPF When Needed
The last thing you ever want as a guy with no hair on your head is to have a sunburnt scalp.
Trust me when I say this – it sucks!
We all know the feeling of a sunburnt back, arms, legs etc.
But a scalp? That’s a different story.
Rather stay on the safe side, and use SPF whenever needed.
Even if it’s a cloudy day, or the if weather seems a bit shitty, put some on your scalp and face if you plan on going outside.
3. Don’t Forget To Wash Your Scalp
Even though there’s no hair to wash, your scalp can still produce dandruff.
Now luckily it doesn’t get as dirty as hair, but you should still give your scalp a quick wash every so often.
It does take a hell of a lot quicker than hair, though!
We have used natural shampoo bars, or just a good quality shampoo.
Just make sure whatever you use, your skin doesn’t react to it negatively.
4. Take Care Of Those Razor Bumps
Every now and then, I will get a few razor bumps on my scalp.
These come from shaving your head with a cartridge razor, and are perfectly normal and common.
But they do suck. Not only do they look shit, they can be a bit sore too.
There are a few ways in which you can get rid of razor bumps on your head.
The most common and useful ones are to try and scrub your scalp pre shave, or use organic coconut oil and apple cider vinegar!
5. Exfoliate Every Few Days
If you find a scrub which is light and not too strong, you should buy it and use it!
You see, dead skin cells start to build up over time on our skin. So it is a good idea to get rid of these by using a good exfoliate.
Not only will it make your face and scalp feel better and smoother, it also helps with shaving!
If you are currently only going through hair loss, but have not yet shaved your head, then let me try and convince you!
Going Bald? Reasons To Shave Your Head Now
It’s a huge moment in any guy’s life.
The moment you decide to shave your head for good. Because once done, there is no turning back.
But it is also one of the most liberating moments of anyone’s life!
Because it takes away, 100%, the stress of going bald.
Below are just a few reasons why you should shave your head if you are going bald.
Reason 1: It’s over.
It’s all over.
No one can say anything anymore, and you cannot worry about losing your hair again.
You will feel extremely liberated and free after shaving your head!
Reason 2: The longer you wait, the harder it gets.
I put off shaving my head for years, as I had a belief that my hair would magically grow back.
This wasn’t the case, and I wasted years where I could have taken control of the situation a lot quicker.
Reason 3: You can re brand yourself quickly.
New look, new you.
Within weeks, friends and family members will completely forget that you even used to have hair, and your new look will be the norm!
Change is a good thing, so embrace it 100%.
Reason 4: Time, money and emotional energy saved.
When we are losing hair, we spend hours and hours worrying about it.
It really can take a toll on your mental health, and I know guys struggle with this shit a lot.
If you have been asking yourself the question of “should I shave my head?” on a regular basis, then taking the plunge will free up a lot of mental space.
On top of the time saved, you can also stop spending money on hair regrowth products!
We know there are a ton of shampoos and other products out there that claim to help your hair grow back.
Unfortunately, this is rarely the case.
Benefits Of Being A Bald Man
Whenever I mention the benefits of being bald, a lot of guys look at me with a bit of shock!
We are supposed to believe that baldness only comes with cons, and that there are zero pros.
Anyways, below are just a few benefits which I believe we all get when going 100% bald!
You are seen as more masculine.
This actually comes as no surprise!
All throughout life men without any hair always get portrayed as being more masculine.
Be it the hardcore guys in films (think Jason Statham, Vin Diesel or The Rock), cops, soldiers, special forces and more.
They always seem to have shaved heads, and just look extremely badass.
For this, many people always just assume bald guys are a bit more masculine than guys with top knots!
Summers are even cooler.
No more sweaty, greasy hair in the hotter months!
Yes you will get a lot of direct sunlight on your head during summer, but a hat or some SPF will always work.
No hair means both swimming and a light breeze will become a lot more enjoyable during the summer months!
No more stressing about going bald anymore.
As I mentioned earlier, this is a benefit and a top reason for balding guys to shave their heads.
It makes a huge difference!
A beard will look amazing on your face.
Even if you cannot grow a full beard, just some stubble will do!
A shaved head and a shaved face tends to look a bit bare, so make sure to grow out some facial hair.
You won’t age much.
Here’s the thing – when you shave your head, you do tend to maybe look a bit older. Especially if you shave it off early on.
But as the years go by, you’ll look pretty much the same. Just make sure you take care of your physical health.
But when you hit 40 or 50, you’ll look very similar to when you were 30 or 35.
This is thanks to no gray hairs showing!
Whether you are contemplating shaving your head or are already bald, it’s always a good idea to make sure you follow a few shaved head tips!
There are literally millions of men out there that are either going bald, or are bald already.
So just remember, you are not alone!
Once bald, treat yourself to a high quality tub of Bald Boss. You’ll never regret it!
