    A recent forum post motivated me... LOL

    Several people in the real world compliment my baldness and many people rub my head. I get it very smooth. And people do want to know how I do it...

    So, I use a Mach 3 Turbo razor and Aloe Barbasol (green stripped can), then take a shower, then follow-up up with Aveno lotion. I use a good sunblock lotion if I plan on being bald in the sun, like the beach.

    I have tried more expensive shaving creams and gels (from Nordstrom's or off the shelf), but they don't work as well for me as the Aloe Barbasol. GO FIGURE!

    The shaving technique I use is to first go with the lay of the hair (down), then sideways, the against it (up). It takes about 10 minutes for my head, and a few minutes more for my face, and I do it everyday (except on lazy weekend days or camping). I know people advise against doing that, but because I take a shower after I shave, and follow up with lotion, I rarely have an issue with razor burn or shaving bumps. And I have thick as well as fine hair.

    I always keep an extra razor in the shower in case I might have missed a spot or didn't get close enough the first time around.

    Have you tried the Head Blade?

    I shave my legs in the shower. Exfoliate first with a textured wash mit, then Mach 3 razor with Dove soap, then use lotion afterwards.

    Only shave once a week, since I don't do it for the sake of appearance. It's more for keeping me dry when I run.

    No I haven't but it looks cool. However, I may be tempted to do a wheel-e with it, and may cause an accident on my head.
