    I use clippers to cut my hair for a shaved look but am considering shaving with a razor instead. To the guys with shaved heads, what do you suggest as far as a razor to use and any kind of moisturizers or lotion on it afterwards? My skin gets dry in the winter time.

    I run a Noreleco electric shaver over my partner's head. The 3 floating heads follow the curvature pretty well, unlike a foil shaver, and catch the longer hairs better, too. He doesn't require lotion for dryness, this is humid Florida.

    I've also seen a special curved razor for the head, a small thing without a handle, just a hook for the finger. Was in a US drugstore, but don't recall the name. Google it?

    I tried shaving my head but I didnt like it. Just a short length to the hair makes it more pliable. When I totally shaved my head, the tiny hair stubble was like sandpaper and snagged any fabric like a towel or pillowcase. So now I am back to just using the electric clipper on the lowest length setting....it's enough.

    OK, this looks like what I saw in the drug store for shaving your head. But I recall the blade as being curved, might just be my bad memory.

    My partner used to shave his whole head, but as Caslon notes, that can produce harsh stubble, and also become kinda high-maintenance.

    He has lovely silver hair, but with male-pattern baldness on top. So I convinced him to let the sides grow back but moderately short, that I can cut easily with a home electric trimmer. Then I remove the stray hairs in the bald area with the Norelco, as I mentioned above.

    I have pretty thick hair and using a straight up blade tends to almost hurt. If I let the hair grow for more than a couple of days the razor tends to pull more than cut. I use a Norelco lift and cut shaver for my head and a foil shaver (Braun Pulsonic) on my face. The Norelco is great on my head - not too harsh and it gets almost as close as the blade. I would recommend it. As for lotion, I dont use anything on my head - I still condition my head in the shower, which kind of moisturizes it I guess. Good luck!

    I like to keep it simple...and natural. In general I use Vitamin E or Grapeseed oil. ( Grapeseed is lighter that Vitamin E for what it's worth. ) Sometimes I use Tea Tree if it feels a little dry and itchy. You can get these at any health food or drug store.
