For everything to go smoothly, we must take good care that the machine, if it is one of the professionals, is greased. Every one or two months it is important to add a drop so that the blades have the best possible effect.

Another important point is that the blades are well clean, so it is highly advisable that we disassemble them before proceeding to the cut itself. The cheap ones usually have a cleaning set in the form of a kind of small brushes that greatly facilitate the work.

    Late but my opinion goes: I have 4 years shaving my head.

    1. I do it every two days, if it is warranted before, I will do it again.
    2. I always do it backwards and forwards
    3. When I don't have cream I just use soap
    4. I am never irritated
    5. Yes I have had my accidents, but they are minimal.
    6. It is a pleasure to be bald, and that I have hair.

    I shave the sides of my head since I decided to make a mohawk, but my problem is the following, is using a common razor (like Gillette) okay or should I use an electric razor? I have no problem using the Gillette but it is somewhat complicated and slow

    I do not advise buying the remington machine, I had problems from the first day, with the power (very low) and an important piece of plastic broke (quite flimsy). If you are going to use it for life, spend the money. From 45 euros. Braun is safe shot. A bald friend

    I tend to shave my head, when I do it every two days it flows much better, when for some reason it doesn't and I take more days, first with the peeling machine and after shaving. MNe love it, I'm doing well. Also, I really do shave my entire body.
