If you are finding less and less hair on top of your head, you are not alone. Most men moving into the third and fourth decade of life experience at least some hair loss. Whether you are a male who decides to shave his head and maintain a bare pate, or you have lost the hair through natural means, the skin on top of the head can become dry and irritated. Learning how to moisturize a bald head is a key element in good grooming for men.
Dry flaky scalp is typical for men who have just begun shaving. While a smooth pate is preferable to a few long strands of hair pasted over bare skin, shaving can be quite irritating to the skin. Finding a way to supply moisture before and after shaving is vital.
The moisturizer that is used must fight against skin irritation. Because shaving can easily break the surface of skin, a pathway for germs is opened into the body. A moisturizer should be both antibacterial and soothing for skin. This will not only feel better while shaving, it will improve the skin health overall. Avoiding infection and scar tissue will mean less likelihood of ingrown hairs and razor bumps.
The technique of applying the product is fairly straightforward. The shaving process must be completed, using appropriate shaving creams or gels. Application of a moisturizing gel should be done soon after shaving. A good quality product will tighten the skin pores and add healing ingredients to fight infection due to bacteria entering a break in the skin.
One item that has been receiving positive reviews from bald men as a moisturizer is the moisturizer put out by a company called Bald Guyz. Their Moisture Gel is touted by users as being clean feeling on the scalp. It doesn’t feel greasy, yet it does a good job of restoring normal skin oils to the cleaned and shaved scalp. The after shave care provided by this product is helpful to reduce skin bumps and close pores so that the next shave is more comfortable.
Moisturizing a bald head is not difficult. The things you must ensure is that you have a top quality product and that it is applied at the right time. Comfort following the application is something that is a plus, but it is also true that often applying a moisturizer will sting a bit to begin with, since the product is sealing up the areas of the skin that have been made thinner by the action of the razor.
