    Do you have any tips for not getting a rash after shaving it? I'm shaving mine this weekend to raise money for cancer and hoping to avoid any suffering later on. Sicklife said to check elitefitness but I couldnt find anything over there.

    I shave mine ... only tips I have are use electric clippers on the 1/8th (one) setting ... go with the grain and go slowly. Then use a mach three or something similar, and some shaving cream and go with the grain ... I don't put anything on it afterward because usually they just irritate my skin :o

    My scalp is gonna be red for about a day after I shave but then it goes away. Especially if I use the Mach 3, I always get a little razorburn around my neck.

    I use to 0 my head out, until I cut myself with clippers on the back of my neck...

    Now I use the guard with the 1 as a setting... I do not shave it.

    There is some type of shaving stuff that women use for their sensitive areas, and they say that is really good for use on your head.

    do it in or after the shower because hot water opens your pores up and you can get a better smoother shave

    I just soap it up a little and use a mach3, never got a rash. Although, I keep it shaved every other day or so which might make a difference.

    I haven't shaved mine with a mach3 in a few months, just been shaving it with clippers. But when I did mach3 it, I did it before i got in the shower. Sometimes I had a problem with ingrown hairs and breaking out on the back of my neck, but no rash or anything anywhere else. It would be worse if I shaved it, then rested the back of my head/neck on a chair, or on my pillow while I slept.

    I always clip it on the lowest setting first if I actually have hair.

    Once that's done I'll shave with the grain if it's the first time I've shaved in a while, after that I'll go against every time. Mach 3 razor, every other day.

    I don't get razorburn, or if I do its very little. New blades are key, after two shaves they're useless.

    one problem with that..

    when your pores are hot, the hairs stick out farther than usual...so you cut the hair short, then the pores close back up as your skin cools.. the edges go back into your scalp and when they start to grow back out, you get ingrown hairs .. i prefer to use moderately luke warm water to avoid this.. LOTS of shaving cream and some fragrance free lotion afterwards
