    Hi guys. I know some of you have clean shaven heads (SMegs). I was wondering how you guys shave your heads. Shaving cream and face razor? Straight razor? Some magical concoction? I've tried it a few ways, and haven't been happy with any of them, and wanted feedback from others. Thanks ahead of time.

    Well, usually, when I feel like I need to shave my head, I just get my bro and he uses a straight razor on my head. Hell, saves my family a buttload of cash. :D

    Most of the time I don't bic my head but actually leave it really, really short. I clip it to the absolute lowest setting possible with the clippers. If and when I do bic my head though, I first trim with the clippers to that setting and then either use face shaving gel or my wife's leg shaving gel and use my face razor on my head.

    I used to do it like Gen. Magnus, but my clippers recently broke. So I just used a Mach 3 razor, only it took about an hour.

    I've got an order of Headblades coming from Amazon now.

    I do what magnus does. I bought a nice pair of WAHL clippers from sams and they work great. If you go the clipper route, pay the extra and get a nice pair. Cheap clippers will leave you looking a 4 year took scissors to your head while you were sleeping. When I do bic it, I use Neutrogena shaving cream that is designed specifically for shaving heads and has a numbing agent in it and I use a Gilette Fusion.

    That's the method I use; just some Neutrogena Something-or-Other shaving foam and a cheap two-blade Gillette face-razor, with Neutrogena Some-Other-Thing aftershave. Takes me about half an hour, but I only shave my head every four days or so.

    WTF??? You had lotsa hair at Botcon...

    Anyway, thanks for the input. I'm trying to decide what to do with the little hair I've got left. It requires a lot of maintenance either way. Most of the time I use clippers with out a guard, but lately I've been clean shaving it. It just takes SOOO long, and I usually knick the hell outta my head. Just checking how others do it. Thanks guys.
