I had an idea in my head for a blog and of course I did not write it down.
That means that my sixty-something, soon to be seventy-something, brain has temporarily relegated that information to a part of my gray matter for which I don’t currently have access.
So, I am going to go to an update on the status of that which surrounds my gray matter, my razor-bald skull. Now you can see how my mind works.
Early last summer, I decided to shave my head, but fearing the touch of a razor and the inherent nicks that it often entails, I opted for a shaven look via some sort of electric shaver. I will say that in my quest to do so easily, I tried my Brio beard trimmer, which did a suitable job, but then opted for something with a more rounded surface and the same self-charging, a Remington that had a good reputation.
Basically, I was wasting my money and time. I ended up not being overly happy with the Remington, as although it was a great size and rounded for the skull, it could not work well around the ears and anywhere you wanted a straight line.
The Brio I had already and it does a fine job and holds a charge forever, but both of the preceding left me with a less than perfectly close shave.
I went back to my old standby, the Peanut, a Wahl shaver that although small and for trimming (around the ears, eyebrows, sideburns, etc.), did a great job at a very close shave.
When I played Santa this past Christmas, the head of the Student Government at Oakton and a member of the Latino Club who drove us to the city for our event, had a perfectly smooth-shaven head. I asked him what he did and he gave me the following info: Col. Conk’s world famous glycerine shave soap and a Gillette Fusion Proglide razor (it pivots to the surface). He had a great head shave and no nicks. He told me he shaves every other day.
I finally took his advice and I have the same experience he has. It is easier, faster, and very convenient. No more monkey hairs on my neck and a smooth head shave.
