Normally we tend to give great advice for taking care of your hair, but what happens when you don't have any? Bald men, and sometimes women, need advice just like the rest of us. Just because they don't have hair doesn't mean they get to live life care-free.
Just because their there is no hair doesn't mean it is an easy do to take care of on the day to day. Having a bald head normally comes with a lot of maintenance that includes lotions, shaving, and sometimes waxes. Some may see it as a way bigger task.
Keeping a proper head bald requires constant shaving to keep that dome smooth and, while a five o'clock shadow may look good on your face, it definitely doesn't on your head. In order to keep up with your hairless head, you should be shaving it at least every two days to prevent unwanted new growth. Doing this will also stop your hair line from showing which is why a lot of men start shaving in the first place. And to get that head extra shiny you should begin with a warm towel on your head until it cools and try to shave in sections (not like you are mowing the grass).
The summertime can be exceptionally dangerous for those who have decided to shed their locks. It is best to use a higher SPF than you might normally use on your body until your head gets used to the UV rays beating down on it all day (even then, should should still later on the sunscreen. A lower SPF will eventually have you covered, though).
With that much exposure to the sun it might be a good idea to wear a hat the first couple of times you head outside and only peek out from under it for small amounts of time. Using things like Miziani Supreme Oil should only be used once your cue ball has been seasoned by the sun. But it will give you and overall softness for your head while giving it that smooth look.
And although the bald look has been traditionally for men, there have been some women who have been able to wear the hairless look... and wear it well, I might add. For those who are suddenly deciding to lose the locks, it is best to start with a buzz and then go in with the razor.
Try to remember that for the first time you really need to take it slow and don't forget how sensitive your neck can be. It may be wise to have someone else reach back there until you become handy with the razor. Also, shaving your head, just like anywhere else, you will need an after balm to take care of the fresh layer of skin and help in the healing process.
As you can see, there is still a lot going on up there, while it may not seem like it at first. Bottom line: you have to take care of the noggin, hair or no hair.
For the love of hair,
