If you're like me, you take any opportunity you can to enjoy a good shave. Once a day facial shaves however are generally so close that morning and evening shaves are just plain impractical. To be completely honest, I don't normally have very much stubble even 24-36 hours post shave.
Then today, I finally shamed myself into doing it. After months of wondering, and talking myself out of it, I finally broke down and shaved my head with a Gem Micromatic (and Williams soap). I didn't require a transfusion or paramedics when I was done so I'll count it as a successful go. However I must say, I found it very strange and very different than a face shave. Half of it was done behind my back where I didn't have much of a look at what was going on and was only guessing really at the blade angle. Funny I used to do this with a M3 in the shower and it took about five minutes but the results were nowhere near what I got today with the Gem. I took it slow and easy though and no harm done. End result BBS on my dome and only a couple amputated moles floating in the sink. It may take a spell to get the technique down there's also a lot more peaks, knots, etc. on my spud so that adds an extra level of difficulty. It did feel weird though and may take some getting used to but hey it's a couple more shaves a week so I'm in. Also finally broke down and bought some Witch Hazel (Dickenson's to be exact). Post shave I slathered it generously about my face and cabeza. The effect was fantastic. I must admit however that the smell immediately brought to mind a new pair of swim fins or the inside of a tire store. Not necessarily a bad smell, just kind of different.
