I had my head shaven today... we meant to simply buzz it down to a scant mm like we usually do, but turns out that half a charge on the hair trimmer simply isn't enough to do more than about half my head (which is funny, seeing as how we never use more than a quarter charge when it's full...).

So the options became either looking like a twerp until the trimmer recharged... or shave the whole thing, courtesy of my Better Half, her Sensor Excel, and some of Mike's Shaving Soap. Naturally I went for the later option - who likes to look like a twerp?

It took longer than either of us had anticipated, but the end result is pretty nice... a mix between a DFS and a BBS, depending on what direction my hair grows and just how bumpy my skull is.

Will we do it again? Perhaps, maybe certainly if I could figure out a way to do it myself. A few years ago I spotted a speciality razor for heads that accepted Sensor cartridges, but I have no idea if those still are available.

Hans, there is a company that makes razor systems specifically for shaving your head called HeadBlade. The device fits in your palm with a loop around your finger similar to those old school Marvy shower brushes.

I have been using a de to shave my head for the last couple months. It isn't as scary as i thought it would be. I think it is easier than my face.

The head blade razor looks like some sort of quad bike! Hans, the head looks good!

Thanks for the comments guys Smile

I've always worn my hair short - comes with the job I guess - but started buzzing it down below 5mm in South Sudan.. so it was a small step to take it all the way down when the hair trimmer ran dry.

I've wanted to try one of those but I can't imagine how much cartridges would cost at the end of the year for shaving your whole head, especially since they're specialty cartridges.
