With so many bald shaving products available to choose from, how do you know which one is the best skull shaver? We’re here to answer that question! We know that if you’re a frequent shaver, you want to know that you’re purchasing a high-quality product that’s going to get the job done right each time. In this blog post, we’ll be sharing an in-depth comparison between our best bald shaver (the Bald Buddy) and three similar products from our top competitors. We’ll share both the good and the bad about each rotary shaver, from their overall designs to their flex-blade capabilities, so you get an honest idea of how our Bald Buddy stands out from the rest.
What Are Bald Shavers?
Bald shavers were invented because traditional razors can cause excessive irritation, ingrown hairs, and other cuts and nicks, especially for people who need a close shave. While only a razor can provide you with a completely hairless look, bald shavers can get you pretty close. They leave a very small layer of hair above the skin, which helps you avoid any injuries to the skull. Due to their ergonomic design, a rotary bald shaver allows you to maneuver the blades around your head comfortably without irritating your head as much.
Top Four Bald Shavers
Now that you know a little bit about bald shavers in general, let’s get into the comparison. Here are four of the top bald shavers on the market today, and how they compare to one another.
- Freebird FlexSeries Electric Shaver
One of the most highly-rated bald shavers comes from the company Freebird. Their electric shaver features a palm design and a flex blade for getting to hard-to-reach areas. The blades can also be unhinged for easy cleaning. The palm design is pretty ergonomic, but the downside is that there isn’t an alternative way to hold the shaver. There’s no slot to put your fingers in if you wanted to do so. This shaver is waterproof, has a good battery life, and is ergonomic overall. It features a pull-head removal, but you’ll need to replace the head every three to six months. It also comes with a small trimmer, but it’s impractical. Overall, this is a good option for beginners.
- Remington Balder Pro Head Rotary Shaver
This is another popular bald shaver option, and it features the same palm design as the Freebird. In fact, these two shavers look almost identical! You’ll find the same flex neck for reaching hard-to-access areas, however, with this shaver, the individual blades do not flex. The neck of the shaver flexes, but that doesn’t allow you to easily reach all the nooks and contours of the head. As with the Freebird, the Remington features a pull-head removal, and the head should be replaced every three to six months. It also has the same small trimmer, but it’s not a practical option. It’s important to have a good trimmer, especially if you’re someone who grows their hair out for more than 5 days between shaving (or if it reaches more than 5 millimeters in length). Despite these flaws, this is still a really good shaver, and it’s popular for these reasons.
- Pitbull Skull Shavers
Out of all the bald shavers on the market, the Pitbull Skull shavers are probably the most popular. This shaver is unique because there are multiple ways you can hold it. You can either palm it or you can tuck your fingers underneath the base. It has similar flexing features to the Remington shaver, but instead of having a center flex, it’s more toward the outer edges of the blades. There isn’t any individual blade flexing, though, so if you have an irregularly-shaped head, it might not flex to fit the full contours of your skull. The Skull Shaver has a twist-and-pull head removal process, and you’ll also want to replace the head every three to six months. This is a great brand and one of our top competitors. Skull Shavers are pricier than the other options, but you’re getting everything you need.
Bald Buddy Ergonomic Bald Shaver
Finally, we’re going to see how the Bald Buddy compares to these three competitors. We’d say that the Bald Buddy is currently the second most popular bald shaver. Its ergonomic design features a full handle, allowing you to ride the head with ease. Having an ergonomic design is key when it comes to getting a controlled, comfortable shave, especially for those with disabilities. If you don’t want to use the handle, you can also tuck your fingers underneath it for an alternative grip. The Bald Buddy has a flex neck and individually flexing blades. You can easily change out the shaver head using the pull-head removal process. Did we mention this is the cheapest option out of the four shavers? We may be biased, but we think it’s the best bald shaver out of them all.
Our Final Results
As you can see, we really do value our competitors and believe it’s important to recognize other brands that are making great products. That’s why we wanted to perform this comparison to see which company offers the best skull shaver. Here’s a summary of our results:
The Bald Buddy is the most ergonomic shaver option and the best for addressing all areas of the head. It’s also the cheapest option, while still providing an exceptional shaving experience. The Pitbull Skull Shaver is also very ergonomic, but it doesn’t have a handle and is more expensive. All four of these shavers offer a similar battery life and have nearly identical RPMs. They can all be used for both wet and dry shaving. Ultimately, you can’t go wrong with any of these razors, as long as you take care of the product and make sure you’re cleaning them properly. These shavers trap the hair in their blades, so you need to make sure you clean them frequently to avoid blockage and damage to the shaver.
