HeadBlade 101: Self Headshave for the First Time

Shaving Routine

Congrats on making one of the best decisions… you decided to shave your head! Shaving your head takes gusto and confidence and the first time might give you some anxiety. Although HeadBlade has patented the best blade technology in the business, there are some tips that can help improve the shaving process.  Don’t be ashamed to ask the questions. We are here to teach you! Learn how to make the most out of this game-changing choice.

Tips For Your First Head Shave

  1. Shave After the Shower – When you get out of the shower, your hair is at its softest. When hair is soft, you can gently use your razor. Additionally, you are less likely to get razor burn or cut yourself.
  2. Use The Right Shaving Products – Exfoliating before you shave rids dead skin cells and polishes the skin surface. HeadShed Scrub acts as an effective pre-shave and preps the skin.
  3. Shave Cream – Choosing the right shaving cream can be a make or break choice. HeadSlick Shave Cream consists of special lubricants that allow blades to glide effortlessly. The mentholated formula leaves your skin feeling refreshed. Because HeadSlick is a water-based solution it rinses off the blades easily.
  4. Good Views – Shave in front of a mirror in a room with good lighting. If you are able to see all angles, there is a lesser chance of cutting yourself.
  5. The Right Direction – This is a basic grooming tenet: SHAVE IN THE DIRECTION YOUR HAIR GROWS. Although it feels good to shave against the grain, it can lead to major razor burn.
  6. Grooming Routine – Establishing a routine will make it shaving innate part of your grooming process.
  7. Invest in SPF – You must protect your head. UV rays are damaging. If you are not used to shaving your head, you have to remember to protect this new vulnerable region. A product that is dual-action such as HeadLube SPF 50 not only protects your skin from the sun but moisturizes as well. HeadLube has a thicker consistency so it coats well and leaves no greasy residue.

HeadBlade 101: Avoiding ingrown hairs, razor burn & bumps

ingrown hair

Shaving your hair can be a tedious process. Men make many mistakes when it comes to shaving. These mistakes can result in ingrown hairs, razor burn, and bumps. Fortunately, technology and product development have made it easier to fix these common problems. The most ordinary mistakes that men make are skipping the cleansing and moisturizing steps. Shaving the skin dry (and dirty) can cause infection, ingrown hair, and razor burn.

Cleanse Skin Before Shave

Cleaning the skin before shaving avoids the risk of skin irritation. If the skin is cleansed, your shave will be more successful. Taking off the dead skin using an exfoliator such as HeadShed Scrub, preps and smooths the skin surface for a proper shave.

Moisturize After Shaving

You cannot skip out on moisturizing your skin after shaving. Taking the time to hydrate your skin prevents both razor burn and bumps. Burns and bumps happen during or right after your shave, so bringing moisture to the skin immediately after shaving will prevent the pain and itch. HeadLube is a moisturizing lotion that promotes smoothness to post-shaven skin. It contains antibacterial ingredients such as tea tree oil that help prevent flakiness and irritation. The anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties of HeadLube also help reduce ingrown hairs. HeadLube comes in both glossy or matte, so you can choose what finish you like best.

Fix The Problem

As much as we try to prevent irritation and ingrown hairs, the hair removal process can be an unexpected and complicated journey. That’s why ClearHead Bump Treatment was made! ClearHead’s formula helps prevent, but also eradicates ingrown hairs. The green tea extract and zinc PCA recipe soothes sensitive areas and helps boosts skin back to normal.

Invest in Your Head Care

HeadBlade has made it their mission to create unique and individualized products for the men who shave their head. They have dedicated themselves to making the shaving process a less tedious and successful process for all men. Avoid the rough shaving process by investing in proper shaving products.

HeadBlade 101: How to Prevent Summer Break-Outs

Prevent Summer Break-Outs

The summer months can wreak havoc on our skin complexion. The warm weather can influence flare-ups, inflammation, and clogged pores. In addition, sweat can exacerbate breakouts. Hair follicles clog, and as a result, there is an overgrowth of bacteria. Dirt and debris build-up are most common during the summer months, making summer one of the harshest seasons for our skin.

Here are some tips to prevent summer break-outs.

Exfoliate and Tone

Remove dead skin cells to allow your skin to reproduce faster. Using an exfoliant such as HeadShed Scrub that contains fine ground walnut shells, you can detoxify and soothe the skin simultaneously.

Use Light SPF Moisturizers

Use an SPF that will allow your pores to breathe. Using a light SPF won’t clog your pores. If you are spending most of your summer in the sun, make sure to apply your sunscreen every couple of hours to avoid damaging UV rays. In the mildest form, sunburn can create a reddening of the skin called erythema, in the harshest form, sunburn can cause the skin to blister and peel. HeadLube SPF 50 is Oxybenzone and Octinoxate free UV protector that is made specifically to keep your scalp healthy and protected. The unique formula does not leave any greasy residue and can be applied multiple times a day.

Keep Clean

Keep clean and wash your skin multiple times of the day. Environment factors such as sweat and sun pollution can cause dirt to build up and send your oil glands into a frenzy. Keeping your skin refreshed and clean increases your epidermal turnover.

Use the Correct Treatment

Making sure you use the right products that react well with your irritated (and the sun) is of chief importance: You don’t want to make your skin more unbalanced or extra oily during the summer months. Choose products that have anti-inflammatory and anti-fungal properties. ClearHead Bump Treatment features Green Tea Extract and Zinc PCA which naturally inhibits oiliness.
