    Default Head Shavers!!

    Alright all you head shavers!! I started shaving my head about 2 years ago using the #2 on the clippers. I went to using the #1 about a year ago and haven't gone back since. I have this problem:

    My head flakes and looks like I have dandruff sometimes! I have tried using head and shoulders. Anyone got any other suggestions? I don't want to put lotion on my head because there is still enough hair to make it look greasy.

    Suggestions??

    Do you towel dry your hair when you get out of the shower or just let it dry?

    I just pat-dry it...I don't abuse the hell out of it or anything. Just a LOT of flaking.

    I go 2 on the top, 1 on the sides and back...

    Try that Garnier Fruictus (sp?) stuff that is advertised EVERYWHERE...they have a dandruff control formula that works for me...

    Same thing happened to me a while back. Here's what I suggest:

    Put lotion on your head at night right before you go to bed. In the morning wash it out with some gentle shampoo and conditioner. After a week, my problem was gone for the most part.

    Experiment with different shampoos and conditioners. I religiously used an anti-dandruff shampoo for months and got the serious flaking problem. I tried other ones and it's helped out tremendously at staying flake-free. I also don't wash my hair every day, probably 3 times a week (sometimes more if I get too sweaty fro working out).

    Saddly....I joined the head shavers association early last year. My bald spot forced my sudden inclusion into this most prestigous club. I don't shave it all away. There is a little up there and it evens out the bald spot.

    I use the head & shoulders....

    When I get snow on my shoulders, I use T-Gel. It works for me, doesn't smell like a bed of roses but it gets the job done. I use to have the flake problem all the time when I was in the military and I just didn't wash my hair every day. If that doesn't work - see a doc...

    I'm having a reverse-affect pertaining to this topic.
    I've been "buzzing" my hair the past couple of years (not shaven) with a #3, but recently I've decided to let it all grow out long again. I'm not sure just how long I want it to go, but I know I don't want a mullet! (Damn you, dm!)
    I'm not a kid anymore (except at heart), so I can't just "let myself go" in the in-between stages. What I'm asking is, what do I tell the barber I want in regards to keeping it trim in the in-between stages? Since I've been doing the "buzz", I just go to a simple barber-shop and get it cut because you can't beat the "neck shave" they give with the old-fashioned straight-razor and most hair-care places outside of a barbershop don't offer that.
