5 Reasons Normal Razors are Bad for Head Shaving

The scalp is the most complex part of your skin. You shouldn't shave it with tools made for the rest of your body... Here's why!

REASON 01

RAZORS TAKE WAY TOO LONG TO SHAVE

On average, shaving your head with a razor takes 15 minutes, and to keep that baby smooth shave we all know and love, you need to do it 3-4 times a week. That's a full hour spent shaving every week, or 50 hours every year spent shaving!

REASON 02

NICKS, CUTS, AND A BLEEDING SCALP.

The smallest mistake while shaving with a razor could leave you with a nasty gash that bleeds for hours on end, scarring that can last a lifetime, and it can definitely put a big damper on your confidence and appearance. Nobody likes walking around with tissues or bandaids on their head.

REASON 03

RAZORS ARE HARD TO USE AND INCONVENIENT.

If you shave your head, razors are the opposite of easy to use. You have to be incredibly careful, take your time, prepare your scalp, and shave hard to reach areas over and over again. Razors are designed for the face, not the scalp.

REASON 04

INGROWN HAIRS AND RAZOR BUMPS

Probably the worst part about shaving with a razor is how prone they make you to irritation such as ingrown hairs and razor bumps. The scalp is home to 100,000 hair follicles, so you need to use the right tools to shave it.

REASON 05

EXPENSIVE BLADES THAT GET DULL QUICKLY

When you shave your head, your razor blades dull faster than people who only shave their faces do. You cover more surface area and generally shave more often. It's recommended you replace the blade every 2-4 shaves if you shave your head. This gets very expensive over time, and is not environmentally friendly at all.
