The end of the second week of the six week shave project was pretty much the same as the end of the first week. My skin felt very smooth and supple. The shave oil and after shave tonic gave my skin a nice radiant glow that I really appreciated.

HeadBlade Week Two Summary

HeadBlade

The second week of the HeadBlade shave project I decided to review the HeadBlade Sport. This is the second razor by HeadBlade  designed specifically for head shaving. The Sport was introduced in 2006 which is not that long after the Classic made its first debut changing the head shaving game forever. I really enjoyed shaving with the Classic so I was even more excited about my week with the Sport. I had high hopes and expectations for this weekly shave and I was definitely impressed at the end of the week. Before I talk about how the razor performs with shaving lets take a look at how the design of this razor changed from the Classic. It’s pretty easy to see some of the changes when you put the two razors side by side. The body of the Sport compared to the classic is wider in the front and tapers down the back. The wider front end means improved axle for stability and support. The cartridge razor is still located on the front end of the razor just like it is on the Classic. The Sport comes with a three blade cartridge compared to the two blade cartridge razor on the Classic. The HB3 and HB4 razors are both compatible with the Sport razor. The top of the razor is rubberized with lots of room for your first three fingers to rest comfortably on top. The hook that’s located on the top of the razor still fits snug  around your middle finger but is more slanted and streamlined.

The Sport razor looks more like a high end razor compared to the Classic. I still love the Classic razor and will always use it. HeadBlade definitely got it right the first time around with the introduction of the Classic but there is always room to grow and HeadBlade has done that with the Sport. The biggest difference between the two razors is the wheels located on the back of the Sport. The wheels help the razor glide across your Dome in long strokes with minimal pressure needed for a smooth and comfortable shave. There was hardly any learning curve with the Sport shaving with the grain and minimal critiquing when shaving against the grain. The Sport like the Classic fits firmly into the fingers and palm of your hand. The Sport is more streamline and aerodynamic compared to the Classic creating a smoother shave from the beginning. The hardest area for shaving on my head is around the ears. I have to be very careful not to cuts myself, even with years of experience under my belt I still manage to get small cuts or nicks in that area. The Sport made shaving this area fast and smooth without any irritation. My week with the Sport was a good experience and the differences in design compared to the Classic definitely impact how the Sport razor functions during shaving. If you haven’t had a chance to try the HeadBlade Sport then I suggest you do so right away. The experience will definitely change the way you decide how to shave your head, so come on and just #Shaveyourhead.  Love your products and you will definitely love the results. Thank you and have a #Baldtastic day.

Menthol Project Week Two Summary

Menthol Project

32160135576_5bd6a28541_o

At the end of week two of the six week menthol project the skin on my dome and face feel as smooth as ever. I decided to add Soap Commander to the project. I’m a huge fan of Soap Commander and I love mentholproject_32257659561_owhat their soap brings to your shaving routine. Soap Commander produces a lather that is very creamy and has an above average cushion that helps decrease the risk of razor, cuts an nicks. The Soap Commander ‘Vision’ Aqua, Amber and Mint shave soap may not contain Menthol or Peppermint but it still feels very cool on your skin so that’s why I decided to add it. I decided to focus on blooming my shave soap every night to unlock the true potential of each soap I used for thementholproject_32227485292_o week.

If you haven’t  bloomed your shave soap yet I suggest you try it. The purpose of blooming is to soften your soap so you get a creamy and thick lather right away. It’s really easy to bloom shave soap. First off you don’t bloom soft shave soap because it ruins the consistency of the soap, you only bloom hard consistency shave soap. You cover the top of your soap with hot water and let it soak for 10-15 minutes. Once the soap has soaked long enough drain the excess water into a separate container and sit it off to the side for later use. Now your ready to start building some lather.mentholproject_32000448090_o It should only take a couple of rotations of your shave brush to create a shave ready lather with a good cushion and slickness. If the soap becomes to dry use some of the water you saved in a separate container to rehydrate the lather. The water you saved is infused with soap and helps to keep the lather creamy.

I bloomed each soap with the same results every time. Each soap produced a thick lather that felt luxurious on my skin. At the end of the second week of the six week Menthol project my skin still feels soft and smooth. Love your products and you will love the results. Thank you and have a #Baldtastic day

I decided to focus on the High Desert Breeze and Santa Fe Cedar shave cream for each shave during the week. The Colonel Conk shaving cream is soft and smooth. It only takes a small amount of product to fill my shave bowl 27203491440_18fd99f963_ofrom the bottom to the top with a creamy and robust lather that feels soft and smooth on your skin. The thick and creamy lather filled the bristles of my shave brush blooming them like a flower. The lather spread evenly across my Dome and face providing a shave with a lot of slickness and comfort. I decided to heat the lather up for every shave by filling a round plastic container full of hot water and half way submerging my apothecary porcelain shave mug. Warm lather helps to open up the pores in your skin creating a smooth shave. Week two has been a great week full of fantastic shaves. Week three I’ll be focusing on shaving every day with the puck of glycerin based shave soap to see what kind of value it adds to my shaving regimen. Love your products and you will love the results. Thank you and have a #Baldtastic day.
