“The ramblings and grumblings of author Ad Hudler”

Toy or grooming device?
Sunday, September 12, 2010

Often, when I can't sleep, I watch youtube videos. A few nights ago I typed in "shaving bald heads" and up came a video of a guy using this new device to shave his dome. As a bald man I am always interested in ways to, ahem, SHAVE off a few seconds from a time-consuming regimen, and I thought I'd give this a try.

First of all, it's kinda cute, isn't it? Looks like one of the Matchbox cars (specifically, a loader) that I had as a kid.

You simply lather the scalp and -- vroom! VROOM!! -- roll this little vehicle from the forehead, up, across the head, then down the back and ending at the nape of the neck.

Problem with this technology: Hair growth and grain changes direction, moving from front to back, so while I got a great shave on the front, the back of the head was left all stubbly.

I will stick with my Mach III, thank you. I can shave my entire scalp now in under two minutes. Soon I'm going to set up a page of home movies on my website, and I will include this demonstration of skill and bravery.
