5 Quick Unisex Tips if you are shaving your head

5 Quick Unisex Tips if you are shaving your head

1. Use a clean blade. A clean blade will make certain that you are getting a close shave, keeping ingrown hairs away and cutting down the possibility of infection. My favorite razor is the Schick Hydro 5. There are 5 blades and it cuts very close to the skin. This razor can be reused until the hydrating part of the blade is gone. Once you are done with each use, rinse with hot water and store in a cool dry place. *Note: There are many great blades and razors. Please do your research and find one that works great for you.

2. Still Shampoo and Condition. Although you do not have any hair present, there are still hair follicles that remain (even if your hair is not growing). To reduce the possibility of clogged pores due to dirt, till shampoo and condition your head. The shampoo cleanses the skin and ensures there is no environmental debris and removes product from your scalp. The conditioner seals those pore, maintains a clean and shiny scalp, but also moisturizes the scalp.

3. Use a great shaving cream. Shaving cream/gel makes a difference in the gliding of the blade and ensures the scalp stays moisturized while you shave. It is also important to have shaving cream each time you shave. This provides a barrier between your scalp and the blade. Without shaving cream, you may experience redness in the shaving area, dryness, razor cuts, razor bumps and ingrown hairs. My favorite shaving addition is, Sea Moss Gel!! It is AMAZING to shave with and does not cause any irritation!! Get your sea moss gel here.

4. Use Ki-Ki Oil to maintain shine and reduce ingrown hairs. I know, I know, I can hear you saying it, "I thought Ki-Ki Oil, was to make your hair grow?" It is, but the ingredients in Ki-Ki Oil also aid in reducing inflammation, balancing the hormones in the scalp, support healthy hair follicles, maintain moisture, and more. All these things are what you need when you are sporting a shaved head. (To learn more about Ki-Ki Oil, click here: Ki-Ki Oil)

5. Exfoliate. Exfoliate. Exfoliate. I cannot stress this enough! Exfoliating is important to ensure you are deep cleaning the scalp beyond the shampooing and conditioning but it will also keep down ingrown hairs. (Especially if your hair is curly) . Even though you may be bald because the hair will not grow as full as it used to, remember the hair follicles can still produce hair below the surface. When those get stuck under the surface, they cause ingrown hairs. A great DIY exfoliator is 1 tbsp of jojoba oil and 1 tbsp of white sugar and scrub your scalp while damp. *Note if you need more, just add equal portions of each. Rinse and repeat once per week.
