Products for Men with a Bald or Shaved Head
by Dave Alexander, menshair.about.com
The men’s grooming market is white hot these days. It seems that every time you turn around there’s a new shampoo, shave cream, or styling product for men being introduced. One growing segment of the hair care industry is aimed squarely at the man who lacks hair. Whether bald by choice or from male pattern baldness, there are now a slew grooming products for men with a bald or shaved head on the market to help you keep that chrome dome looking slick. Of course, the first step in maintaing a great looking melon is to use proper shaving technique, but the right products can really take your look to the next level. Here are a few of my favorites:
The company started with the HeadBlade Razor in the late nineties and has since introduced a full suite of products just for head shavers. The company has created a nice suite of products to fill every need a bald guy could think of. Take a look at my full reveiw of Headblade Products.
Matte for Men
The company offers two products, Antioxidant Shave Gel and Complete Head Care Lotion. The Antioxident Shave Gel is a departure from the normal shaving creams in that it’s a gel with no lathering agents. The product provides very good lubrication and is ideal for detailed shaving around facial hair. The Complete Head Care Lotion absorbs well, has a matte finish, and offers an SPF of 25. This is a good all around product to moisturize and protect the face and head.
Sharps Bald Head Balm
This Bald Head Balm feels really good on the skin. It’s a bit heavy, but not greasy and has very nice moisturizing properties. I love that it has an SPF factor of 15, so you get the added protection of a sunscreen. I wish it were in a tube, rather than a jar, but that’s the only fault I can find with this otherwise great product.
Destination Nation New England Scalp Wash
While I’m not exactly sure how they came up with the New England connection (all their products have a location in the name), I can say that I do like this Scalp Wash. It does a fine job of cleansing the scalp and has a nice, fresh smell. Who would have thought someone would create a shampoo for bald guys?
I do so many reviews and articles on men’s hairstyling products, I felt obligated to give the guys with no hair a little more product information. Just because you’re bald, doesn’t mean you don’t need good product, right?
