So you shave your head or are interested in trying it out?
If you are going on a short trip, you might like to get your head shaved before you leave. Depending on how often you shave, this might mean you do not need to concern yourself with shaving on your trip.
You might decide to grow your hair out while you are on holiday... but you probably did not come here for that, so...
If you do need to shave while you are away you can decide between:
No need to take any shaving gear, saving weight and space.
Get someone else to do it and clean up the mess.
The shave should be pretty quick.
You might have to spend some time looking for a place to get shaved.
It might be expensive.
Some people like the social aspect of having a chat.
Professional facilities and equipment.
Once you decide to take your own gear, you need to decide what is the best shaving option for you and whether you shave your head smooth and bald, or clip to your desired length.
Cheap or expensive:
Check the instructions:
Take spare blades or replace them before a trip if you think they will not last.
A number of people mention the HeadBlade products can be vulnerable to breaking while using them or travelling. This case can help with the second issue. It is custom made by HeadBlade to fit an ATX Razor adapter and extra blades.
You could also look around for another similar case to fulfil the same purpose. You might get away with something smaller, or find a storage container to serve multiple purposes. Let us know on social media if you find something that fits well.
HeadBlade started out creating a shaver to quickly and easily shave your head. They seemed to become popular with their quirky auto themed wheeled shaving device. There have been a few changes over the year and the current ATX model is designed for not only head shaving duties, but also your face and body. Some people have reported previous designs worked better for them.
The device has a soft rubber finger grip and blade at the back so you can roll it over your head and get a cleanly shaven head.
Note: You will need to use HeadBlade razors to fit the device.
See the HeadBlade TravelCase, because people have also reported these breaking while travelling.
Some people have noted the suspension is susceptible to breaking and requiring a new body. Be careful during use.
There is also an HeadBlade ATX kit available that includes an ATX Razor, HB4 Refill Blades and a 5oz HeadSlick Shaving Cream Bottle.
Dimensions: Approximately 3" x 1.75" x 1.5"
HeadBlade's MOTO shaver is the most recent model in the HeadBlade lineup. In April 2017 it received a "Red Dot" Award Winner, for industrial design marrying form and function in the bath.
This new model incorporates dual suspension, slim design and pivots on a fully rotational ball.
Opinions vary with these HeadBlade products and there seems to be no clear winner on which is the best model. Be careful with them to avoid breakages if you give them a try.
