Should Have Done It 20 Years Ago

For quite some time I had wanted to shave my head but due to the job I had the sudden drastic change to my physical appearance could have actually caused some issues.

I September of 2010 I lost my job when I broke my foot and needed 6 weeks off since I could not work in a kitchen with a cast on.

During my time off I kept thinking of how I have wanted to shave my head. Finally about a month later on 10/28/2010 I finally made the decision to do it and then got the guts TO do it.

I got my beard trimmer out, made sure it was charged well enough, looked at myself in the bathroom mirror, tooth a deep breath and went for it.
I decided the first strip of hair should come off of the center of my head. That way there is no turning back. If I had shaved the first strip off of the side I could have at least evened out the other side but there is no hair style that looks good with a bald stripe right down the center.
As I raised the trimmer to my head my hand shook uncontrollably. I took it away and it stopped. It was almost as though I was calm and ready something in my head and hand were saying" Are you crazy?!".
I took the trimmer to my head again and started the stripe down the center and for the first three or four passes my hand shook but I carried on anyway knowing the trimmers wouldn't cut me.
Once I finished shaving my head with the trimmers I started in with the final close shave with my 1940s safety razor and and shaving cream. I did a lot better than I thought I would. I ended up with a few scrapes, one minor cut and razor burn by the time I was done.
I wasn't sure if I liked it or not yet but I cleaned up and went outside into the cool nights soft breeze and that was when I realized this was one of the best decisions I had made in years.
Once I was done enjoying that breeze on my freshly shaved head I went back inside and sat down at my desk and remembered there was a razor I saw a long time ago that was made for shaving the head. I went to Google and within a matter of seconds found and sure enough that was the razor I was thinking of.
I ordered their classic razor, some samples of Headslick, Clearhead and Headshed and Headlubes. Then, I went onto Facebook and joined their Facebook group and introduced myself.
While I waited to my package to arrive from Headblade I did let my hair start to grow again because one, I wanted the tiny cut and the scrapes to heal, and two, I wanted to be ready to use it the day it came in. This didn't work. I ended up shaving it because I hated the stubble look and then later that day my package arrived.
At least I got to enjoy the stickers and other trinkets that were included.
I waited a couple days and then put the Headblade to the test and it worked just as awesomely as they said it would.
No cuts, scrapes, or razor burn. Just a smooth head.
I became a Headblade man right then and there 100%. After three or four shaves I began to experience the two to three minute shaves I had heard about. At first I was overly cautious since it was a new thing to me.
A little over a year later I am still going strong and still have not experienced razor burn, nicks, cuts or scrapes at all. Their products are great and their customer service is outstanding!

HeadBlade President Todd Greene on the 207 Show in Portland, ME

Our President Todd was back in his home state of Maine last week to speak to students at Bowdoin College about his experiences as a student and entrepreneur (Todd graduated with a BA from Bowdoin).

Todd also sat down for a chat with the 207 show, which airs on WCSH6 NBC in Portland, Maine.  Very well done Todd!  It's a little-known fact that sitting in front of a fireplace makes you 57% classier.  We loved the anchors with shaved heads at the end of the interview.  Check out the video below and let us know what you think!

Better hair care is no hair care!

My story is simple. I was 'blessed' with naturally curly hair. The kind that grows vertically into a pile on top of your head. Factor in a terrible case of dandruff and psoriasis and my head was a serious nightmare.

To tame that disaster area, I regularly buzz clipped my hair for many years. I did notice, though, that some gray was appearing in my hairline, and I was only 40.

Once, before an important appointment, I needed a trim and could not find the guards for my clippers. I decided to just buzz it down to the scalp and deal with it.

The next day, I shaved it with a razor. I hacked it up pretty good, my head looked like a nicked up bullet that the CSI people dug out of a crime scene.

It was then I realized I needed a better razor, so I picked up a Headblade and some HeadSlick from the local drugstore.

My scalp was awful, splotchy and scaly from the psoriasis. I used some medicated apricot facial scrub and began regularly washing my scalp with it. Two weeks later, with the help of Headblade products, my head was sly and smooth and I looked and felt awesome.

That was almost four years ago.

Shortly after I went bald, I found the woman of my dreams. She absolutely loves my bald head. And I love it when she touches my head.

We met on Facebook. She was attracted to my dome when she saw my profile picture. The photo was an oddity, I was in costume for Halloween and singing in the finals of a karaoke contest. Good thing I reminded her of a very famous and sexy starship captain!

I'll never stop shaving my head, even though I was not losing my hair, I am 'bald by choice.' I look and feel younger, no more gray and no more 'heartbreak of psoriasis.'

I highly recommend anyone who is not pleased with their hair or hairline to give it a shot. There's nothing like it!
