    Default Popped my cherry

    First SR on my head this afternoon and it went pretty good I only nick myself once on the back off my head the razor I use is just a no name blade I got for 6 bucks and it's OK I guess but would rather use a good name razor but can't afford it right now what is the best way to get BBS on my head and can I strop my razor right after a shave or do I let it sit 24 hrs before a strop thanks

    Welcome to the club. Best way to get bbs on your head is same as on your face. Learn the direction your hair grows. An slow practice. The back of the head is a challenge. Some guys use double mirrors. I just go off feel. When in doubt flatten the blade to lessen the chance of cuts. Also some guys strop during their shave if they feel it's needed. Stick with it an bbs will happen. I save the sr head shave for the weekend. Just don't have the time through the week. Don't rush it!

    Man there are so many good ones out there. You don't need the fanciest or highest priced. I have several lower end models that shave just fine. It's all in how well it is honed. Look in the classifieds. There are several good shave ready blades for low prices.
