    Head shaving question

    *grin* Yeppers an odd question from me. Imagine that.

    Gave myself a regular cut and looked like Friar Tuck so I just shaved it all off. I was using some disposables my wife picked up (cheapest where ever she got them) that were aimed at women but do a darn good job. I had an older Gillette Fusion with a almost dead blade and decided to throw it on my sons Fusion Power (the one with the battery that vibrates, not "sonic" as they claimed) and it was a surprise. Even with an old blade it worked so darn good.

    BUT the dang refills are $20+ for 8!!!!! So anyone out ther shave their head with cheaper blades that can recommend something?

    Or even a cheap place to pick up refills for the Fusion. A fast online search found some but they are a whopping $4 cheaper. Add in shipping and wait time and it's a wash.

    Get whatever you feels best, and you'll be able to afford the initial cost if you will simply dry the blades after each use.

    Cutting hair isn't what dulls the blades, but the rust from the water. Your blades will last a lot longer if you'll simply dry them well each time.

    Don't skimp on blades. Our shiny heads deserve the best!

    When i shave my head i use, (1) blades from walgreens that fit the fusion, (2) a razor called head blade that will use the same blades, kinda like the weight of the fusion feels better in the hand than disposibles, also you can find head blade at walgreens

    +1 - I dry mine off with the towel then hit it with the blow dryer to get the drops out from between the blades. They last a long time.

    Don't know anything about blades. I've still got all my hair and have a full beard! My brother shaves his head and uses something that looks like a computer mouse.

    I have been using the Gillette since they came out as 3 then 4,and now 5. I will use them till they quit making them I guess. I can use 1 blade for 3 or 4 weeks and I have a full head of hair and beard. I had a friend that used this HeadBlade® | Ultimate Head Shaving Razor & Head Care Products but I don't know which blades it uses.

    I consider myself an expert as I've been shaving my head for 20+ years now.
    The best shave I have found comes from these:
    Schick® | The Complete Line of Xtreme3® Products

    They function better than any refill or disposable I have ever come across.....the best part is the price.......Around $1 each in Sam's Club or $1.20 each in Walmart.
    They come in 4 packs and 8 packs, and most of the time you'll see a bonus pack on the shelves.

    Let me tell you Sarge -- the only time I ever shaved my head was for the Army, and it was not my choice! Best of luck with the razor though.......
