SmoothI only made one mistake when I first started shaving my head. That was to start shaving it days before the coldest winter in a decade. I quickly learned to love hats.
Aside from that, I LOVE the feeling my scalp has. Sleeping that first night was one of the most restful sleeps I have ever had. The pillow- that same pillow I had for years, felt so soft against my newly-bare skin. For months afterwards I would find myself just feeling the smoothness of my scalp. It is comforting.
And many women love it. I've had women I've just met not be able to keep their hands off my head. And the ladies I've dated even more so.
It has even been the cause for at least 3 different men I know to try shaving their heads. Only one kept the look, but it made me feel good to know that the others tried it out after they talked to me about it.
I highly recommend trying it out. Worst comes to worst- the hair will grow back and you'll have a few silly photos and an interesting story to tell people.
