just a quick one, i have been shaving my head with a razor for a while now and every now an then, today especially, it comes up with loads of red blotches. i have been using olive oil to ease the dry skin but although the redness goes down a little, it is still there. anyone else get this??

Try letting the hair grow slightly longer each time, shaving when it's too short can cos me to come out in this rash however i never get it anymore as i always let the hair grow that little bit longer.

yeah, i used to use clippers all the time but i really like that close shave. may have to go back though if it continues, maybe give it a break for a couple of weeks and then start afresh. maybe its just some of us have more sensitive skin. it has cleared up a little, everytime i come out of the shower i cover it in olive oil, it does make your head look a little shiny though.

i always get a shaving rash on my face. the only advice i can give is to use a fresh disposable razor every time you shave and rinse will cold water to close your pores. dont know if the same applies to shaving your head- but its worth a try.
