A Cheeky contacted us the other day saying he’s taken the plunge and clipped his hair…. meaning he’s using clippers to cut his hair down all the way but isn’t using a traditional razor to do the job. This is a safer way to accomplish the bald is beautiful look and easier to maintain. He was experiencing typical dryness, along with overall sensitivity & also inquired about how men get that shiny look – good old Bruce Willis comes to mind when I think of an appropriate shiny look.
I sent him over an email explaining what is the typical process & great products that will help him on his way to not only a beautiful scalp but a healthy looking bald head. Note: This user does have sensitive skin so the product recommendations are more catered to that. However, organic and all-natural products tend to be great for everybody.
If you’re new to the clipping game, we should first start out with the overall process – when I mention, ‘shave’, please note that we mean using clippers to achieve this look.
- Exfoliate – you want to prepare the skin for a thorough shave. You also want to get rid of any dead skin & clean out pores to allow for the cleanest & best looking shave.
- Shampoo AND conditioner – if you have hair, let’s say on the sides of your head, then you’ll need to use shampoo & conditioner. If you’re totally bald, a moisturizing 2-in-1 body wash/shampoo can do the trick (as long as it is not too drying). This is not an ideal thing to do but we get it…
- Moisturizer and/or after-shave balm – this will help your scalp have a polished and moisturized look.
- Optional – Shine or anti-shine
- Optional – Bronzer
For the exfoliation part of the program, here are some great products –
