    Stopped DE shaving on head for a while, back to cartridge and electric tell I can get my face in order, then go back and get my head together.

    That could make sense, to tackle one problem at a time. Can you describe any problems you are having? We may be able to help.

    Hi, I saw this, and your other post. Im not on here as much as I should be... I was pretty lucky, I picked up a "Lord L6" as my very first DE, and it was super mild, and I was super scared lol. I used pre-shave oil that I made from the DIY on this forum and have gotten great shaves with little blood loss ever since. I dont use pre-shave oil any more, and Ive found a few shaving creams that I like after i got used to making lather, but when I was just starting out I really liked "Head Slick". It was easier to get a nice slick layer on my face and head, and I got better results (it doesnt matter nearly as much now, but if Im at the gym, and shower shaving, head slick is my go to for ease, and great results).

    I bought blade sample packs, and have been lucky enough to have acquired many razors over the last two years (lucky, or metal instability, Im not sure...) As everyone says on here... everyone is different, but what I enjoy using the most to shave my face and head Is a Gillette tech, and a Derby extra blade. I change the blade after about three neck up shaves, and I try to remember to shave my face with it the first time out. I've tried many blades, and razors, and they're all fun, but for speed and simplicity I stick to the Tech/Derby combo. It takes a multi-pass shave, but I usually dont have irritation, or nicks.

    Good luck! It just takes a little time to get used to it, and finding the right combo. let me know if I can answer any questions for you.

    I can echo Schwanks words on Head Slick. When I first started head shaving it was my go to cream also. I still use it every now and then. It has a nice menthol kick to it, and is super slick. And fairly cheap, usually can be found at around $6 or so a bottle.

    First few weeks of head shaving here, and I love Head Slick (and Head Clear, for afterwards without any perfume). I bought it through the Head Blade web site, which is nice because they always throw in something extra... coupons, stickers, or trial size samples.

    I echo the Tech. I know in another post I stated to use the Slim, I no longer have it but if you do I suggest you use that. Just make sure that the lather is thick and slick. The hardest part for me is the back of my neck. It will come to you Bob.

    This thread is a couple of years old, but the product is still around. Walgreens lists it on their website and may be able to order it in for you. It's also available on Amazon.

    You might try some Eli's Extracts too, especially if you are using a cartridge. His creams are formulated for head shavers.
