Yep.

My hair has got thinner over the years and I've decided to shave it off. Even the wife thinks I should. Step one; see my hair guy for the last time.

What next? Any tips?

Electric or blade razor?

Skin Care?

My husband uses an electric razor and shaves his head during the summer months. I usually have to help clean it up for him. It isn't my favorite look of his, but he likes it and that is all that matters. It also keeps him cool.

My hubby shaves his with a real razor every 2-3 days, also because his hair was thinning and he decided to make a "pre-emptive strike"! He makes sure to use sunscreen daily to protect his noggin, but other than that I don't think he does anything specific. He'd been giving himself buzzcuts for the previous 3 years or so, and hadn't been to a barber once in that time frame either.

The shaved head looks so much better than thinning hair! I've always loved a shaved head. And I'm under 30- I dunno why... I just like the look!

Go for it! I'd rather see a well groomed scalp that a comb-cover or mullet!

Good idea,although some guys look good bald,some dont depending..
Mostly on facial features.
Those guys who just have a little on the sides and back look silly.
I have some thinning in the back,but not too noticeable.
Might be shaving my head in 5-10 years,i cant stand the thought..
Of a huge bald spot!!!

That must be so weird not have to use shampoo.

I know so many men who shave their heads, though. You won't be alone and you'll be in good company.

Thanks for the tips and encouragement.

It's a big decision, but the time is now.
