How to Shave Your Head

If you are wondering how to shave your head, read on. It is hard enough to shave your face without cuts and nicks. So shaving your head can be challenging. You have to shave your head mostly by feel. You can shave your head with ease if you follow these simple steps.

Trim it down

It’s best to shear off your head before shaving. Use a trimmer to trim your hair down to a buzz cut. Shorter hair will make it easier to shave and hair won’t tug in the razor.

Wash your hair

Use soap or shampoo to wash your head. It will soften the hair and relax the scalp. The skin pores will open up and you’ll have a smooth and frictionless shave.

Use Oil

Apply oil on your head. It will hydrate the skin and provide a layer of protection against razor blades. You’ll need less drag on soft skin and the shave will be smooth and easy.

Choose the right razor

If you are shaving for the first time then you should go with the cartridge razor. Make sure that blades of the razor are not dull. More experienced people can choose a safety razor. Less irritation is caused by the ultra sharp single blade but if you don’t know what you’re doing you’ll end up with cuts.

Apply shaving cream

You can use a shaving gel or the old school shaving cream. Apply a light and consistent layer of the cream/gel. Be sure to cover your entire head.

Time to shave

Take it slow. Start from the top of the head and shave downwards. Use short and steady strokes and do not put extra pressure on the razor. Clean the razor after every few strokes. Fell with your hand to check that you haven’t missed a spot. Rinse with water when done. If you have missed a patch, reapply the shaving gel and clean it up.

Soothe the skin

Use any antiseptic and non-alcoholic aftershave to soothe the scalp.

Female Pattern Baldness

Androgenetic alopecia is called female pattern baldness. It refers to hair loss among women in a specific pattern. It is similar to male pattern baldness but the pattern of hair loss is different. Female pattern baldness can run through generations. It can start as early as the teenage years. More than half of the women over sixty years suffer from female pattern baldness.

Pattern of hair loss

Female pattern baldness causes thinning of hair. The volume of hair is affected and the hair does not appear as fluffy. Although the hairline may not recede but the scalp becomes visible at some places. Female pattern baldness can speed up after menopause due to drop in estrogen levels in the body.

 Female pattern baldness can be broadly classified into three stages. At the first stage there is minimal thinning of hair and creative hair styles can be used to camouflage it. In the second stage the midline part widens and there is a noticeable decrease in the volume of hair. The third stage involves more hair loss and the scalp at the top of the head becomes visible. It can lead to full baldness at the top of the head. 

Diagnosis

A physical examination is required to diagnose female pattern baldness. You can consult the best PMU in Massachusetts for advice on hair loss due to female pattern baldness. Your genetic history and environmental factors are considered in the diagnosis process. You can conduct the pull test to diagnose female pattern baldness yourself. Grab a bundle of fifty to sixty hair from close to the scalp between your thumb, index and middle finger. Firmly tug away from the scalp while running your fingers along the hair shaft. If more than 10% of the hair is shed then you may be suffering from female pattern baldness.

Treatment

Female pattern baldness can be treated with use of medication such as iron supplements and anti-androgens. You can try home remedies and use saw palmetto to promote hair growth. In advanced cases of hair loss, hair transplant along with permanent makeup techniques like scalp micropigmentation is also a good option.
