Helpful Tips

There are many reasons you might choose to DIY shave your head; fashion, lifestyle, experimentation, or to mask a naturally balding head. There are many reasons why you might want to keep your face or body clean-shaven, too. Whichever reason you decide to use our Bald Buddy Wet Dry Ergonomic shaver, we're ready to share some great tips to make your shaving routine smooth.

Before You Start
Every time you unpack your Bald Buddy, and before you begin shaving, there are a few essential tips to follow. First, make sure your Bald Buddy's high-performing Lithium-Ion battery is fully charged to give you the full 75 minutes of powerful shaving.
If this isn't your first time using the Bald Buddy, brush the blades to keep them clean and free of stray hairs. Sanitize, rinse, and you are ready to shave. If you have been using the Bald Buddy frequently for three months, check to make sure you are not using a blunt head. Change the old head out with a new Bald Buddy replacement shaving head if needed.
Check the Condition of Your Scalp Before Shaving
Wash and moisturize your hair and scalp before you shave. If you notice acne, rashes, or bumps, be extra cautious of those areas before using the Bald Buddy. Make sure your hair is at a workable length. Stubble is perfect; for anything longer than a few millimeters, use your Trim Buddy first to avoid clogging your Bald Buddy.

Tips for Wet or Dry Shaving
The Bald Buddy is engineered to be used for both wet and dry shaving. However, deciding whether to dry shave or wet shave depends on many factors. Dry shaving without water or cream is best for certain hair types, head shapes, and the results may be impacted by your regular grooming routine.

Dry shaving works well for people who:
• Have thin hair.
• Have a round head shape.
• Have no issues with (or only rarely get) ingrown hair
• Have hydrated skin.
• Shave daily.
• Usually only need one pass of a shaver to complete the job.
While wet shaving is better suited for those who:
• Have very thick, curly, coarse, or tough hair.
• Have a different head shape than round.
• Frequently suffer from ingrown hairs.
• Have a dry or dryer skin type.
• Shave infrequently or only shave every two or three days.
• Need two passes or more of a shaver to finish and tend to use small, circular patterns as you shave.

What To Do if Your Bald Buddy Won't Turn On
If you attempt to use your Bald Buddy and note that the light is flashing but does not turn on, this indicates your Bald Buddy is Travel Locked. To unlock your Bald Buddy, push and hold down the on/off switch for three seconds until the indicator light flashes, and the lock state is released. If this doesn’t solve the problem, feel free to reach out to a Cut Buddy Pro for help.
To re-lock your Bald Buddy to prevent accidental activation, push the on/off button for three seconds until the light flashes two times. Your Cut Buddy will be Travel Locked.

When Should I Replace My Bald Buddy Blades?
For the closest shave and best performance, we highly recommend you replace your Bald Buddy's head every three months. Replacement heads and blades are available in our online store.


Step-by-Step Instructions

Step 1: The Bald Buddy is only intended to remove hair from head and face areas, although it can be used on other body parts with short hair. The product can be used on dry areas or wet areas (i.e., areas covered in shaving cream or shaving lotion). First, ensure that all hair in the desired shaving area is cut very low if it is not already. We recommend The Cut Buddy Clipper for getting hair to a desired length before using The Bald Buddy.

Step 2: If planning to utilize shaving cream (not required, but preferred by some), add shaving cream to your scalp or shaving area and exfoliate it into skin. While The Bald Buddy is designed for both wet and dry shaving, understand that NOT all people should dry shave! Dry shaving (without water or shaving cream) can work well for you if: hair type is thinner hair, head shape is rounder, you do not suffer from ingrown hairs, you have hydrated skin, and you shave daily.

Step 3: Remove the protective cap off of the product.

Step 4: Power on the product, and apply to the desired shaving area.

Step 5: Hold the shaver and place the shaving head on your scalp and start shaving in a short circular motion. Keep all shaving heads touching the skin with equal light pressure, You can shave as fast or as slow as you desire, and the shaver head will catch all stubble while shaving.

Step 6: We recommend rinsing the shaver head while running (powered on) after each use under running water to clean away stubble. You can also deep clean the shaver in a cup of Rotary and Shaver cleaner solution. Just turn on the shaver and dip only the shaver heads in a small cup filled with the solution, or if you only want to quickly rinse the shaver, you can use regular water. It is recommended to use Rotary and foil shaver cleaner to disinfect blades properly. These cleaners can be found on Amazon or eBay. Warning: Before cleaning in water, please be sure the appliance is separated from the USB charging cord.

Step 7: To replace the blades, simply pull off the entire blade head at its base:

Step 8: Taking your Bald Buddy replacement blade, line-up the center blade with the shaver and push until they click together:
