|An absolute must for head shavers|
Prior to using this product, I constantly struggled with dry/flaky skin on my head. I was scratching my head all the time and often would find myself picking at particularly flaky spots throughout the day … not exactly a habit that you want to get into. You do NOT want to be that guy who is always scratching/picking his bald head, that is simply not good.
With HeadShed, those dry/flaky spots are COMPLETELY GONE and I almost never have an itchy head these days. My head is significantly smoother than it’s ever been before and it makes all the difference in the world. Because I have very sensitive skin, I only shave my head every other day and therefore only use HeadShed every other day (immediately before shaving). You do not want/need to rub hard when using HeadShed – it will do the work for you. Just rub lightly, especially on the more sensitive parts of your head like the hairline. I suggest using a non-exfoliating shampoo on your non-shaving days.
Side note: It seems like everyone suggests shaving your head immediately after a shower so the hair is softened up. That’s great in theory and it does work well, but it’s not always possible or practical to do that if you’re traditionally a shower-in-the-evening, shave-in-the-morning person. I’ve found that if I’m not showering immediately before shaving, I can just (1) run warm/hot water over my head in the sink for 10-20 seconds, (2) lightly rub a small amount of HeadShed over my head for 10-20 seconds, (3) rinse it off with warm/hot water, and (4) lather up with HeadSlick and get right to shaving. These quick steps make a big difference if you need to shave without a full shower first.
