1. Trim before you shower
If you have some growth on your hair already, the first step is to use a trimmer to trim it down. Wash your hair, dry with a towel and then trim it down. Remember, this is before you shower.
You do this before you shower to give the hair enough time to dry for the trimmer to work optimally. Washing the hair removes all dirt and oil that could hamper the trimming and not give close cuts. Brush off the head with a brush and then jump into the shower.

While in the shower, shampoo your hair.
3. Lather with a shave gel
Lather your head with a shave gel to hydrate and soften the hair to make it easier for the blade to cut of the hair and achieve a close shave.
4. Shaving your head
This is how you check for dullness, look at the blade to see if it has an indication strip which would fade to white if its no longer sharp. If so discard the blade and add a new one.
Use the mirror to shave the back of your head, using upstrokes to help the blade do the work and avoid pressure to the skin.
Rinse the blade often and when done feel the scalp to see if there are any isolated areas of Hair left behind. If there is re-lather your hair and shave that area. Wash the scalp with cool water after shaving to close the pores and pat dry with a towel.
Apply the Anti bump aftershave lotion immediately after you are done and continue with the aftershave lotion on days you do not shave to keep the scalp hydrated and moisturized to avoid flaking and dryness and ..you guessed it razor bumps
You are done!
