If you’ve survived Covid 19, you might be looking for a career change.  If you want to work without a formal boss.  Then starting a home computer repair business in Las Vegas might be the best idea you have.

It can make you more self-sufficient when going up against tough computer problems because there are also many expert computer repairers out there.

Perhaps, competing against big-box retailer operations like Best Buy’s Geek Squad or Circuit City’s Fire Dog services is the most difficult aspect of thriving as a self-employed computer repair person.

However, you may be able to undercut your competition and achieve success in the process by being confident in your work and knowledgeable about many types of computer problems.

Home Computer Repair Business Las Vegas

 

How to start a home computer repair business in Las Vegas.

It’s simple you should follow the instructions below:

Things you will need:

  • Desk
  • Workbench
  • Surge protectors
  • Supplies
  • Repair parts
  • Licenses, of course.

Take these steps.

Determine your services

Start with working out the services that you want to offer clients.

As there are many experienced repairers out there as your competitors.

Making a list of the knowledge and expertise you have in the area of computer repair is highly important, which you can use to show the clients that you are capable.

Also, decide if you want to offer both hardware and software services. Hardware component upgrades, virus and spyware removal services, and operating system re-installs are all included in examples of possible computer repair services.

Decide if you want to offer house calls or simply want people to bring their systems to you.

Have an established work area

Devote to your computer repair service, a space in your home must be created before you start a home computer repair business in Las Vegas.

Once done, an office desk and computer system must be placed in your office to help stay organized with paperwork and invoices. In order to hold clients’ computer systems and towers, You will need a workbench or other sturdy frame.

Do you have the tools?

Since you are competing not only in knowledge and experience but also in tools.

Supplies for your computer repair business in Las Vegas should be prepared and cheaply purchased. Powering multiple systems requires electrical surge protectors. Anti-static wristbands, screwdrivers.

You will need other tools for opening computers as well as additional computer monitors are all included in other supplies you may need.

Set prices for your service

To determine the current market rate for various computer repairs, call or research your local competitors in the Las Vegas area.

As most clients will be paying for your “time” to fix computer problems, an hourly rate for labor should also be determined.

Or, for performing certain jobs, such as computer troubleshooting or virus removal, set a flat rate because it may only take ten to twenty minutes.

Get your supplies sorted

A list of vendors and suppliers which you will use or fixing computers is also important to be made. A place to buy computer repair parts that provide cheap prices should be found.

Appropriate licenses and permits

The appropriate licenses and permits for your business must also be acquired. Register a business name with your state and pay any fees for setting up as a sole proprietorship or limited liability company (LLC).

To determine if any specific permits are needed for computer repair businesses in Las Vegas, you might need to call the local city or country departments then acquire them as needed.

Massages can be a fantastic way to relax and unwind or get some kinks worked out of a tight muscle.  However, there are rules to follow for massage etiquette.

Receiving a gift certificate for a massage or just deciding to book one for the first time doesn’t need to invoke blind panic.

The fact that a perfect stranger will be seeing you in a semi-naked state for a half-hour or more is perfectly ok.  As that’s their professional job, and trust me when I say a good masseuse is hard to find.  but when you do, they can make such a difference to your quality of lifestyle.

As blokes, you can be a little unsure as to what etiquette to follow for a massage, here are 10 rules you need to follow to get the perfect massage every time that will have you coming back for more.

massage etiquette

10 Massage Etiquette Rules

So, let’s get into how to make sure you get the most out of your massage.

First let’s look at the obvious, things you need to know before you rock up for your first massage experience.

Male or Female?

There are plenty of male masseuses out there that do a perfect job.  So, get over the whole not wanting a man to rub oil into your body for an hour.

They are doing the job that they are trained to do.  No, if you are straight and a guy is massaging you, that does not make you GAY.

It makes you a well-adjusted person that enjoys a decent massage.

If you have a female masseuse no you are not cheating on your partner. Again, it’s a professional doing their job.

Just stick to picking someone that makes you comfortable.

Where do you find one?

 If you have a gift card, well that’s easy, your choice has been made for you.  If you are looking for a massage in your local area, Try google, or just ask friends if they know anyone.

There are a lot of people that offer massage services from their homes as a way of supplementing their income.

There are also massage therapists that offer mobile services.  Which means they will come to your home. You might pay slightly more, but the convenience is fantastic.

Make sure you have showered.

If you go straight from the gym to a massage, the fair chance is you might be a little stinky.  Let’s face facts no one wants that at all.

If you do physical labor before your massage time, make sure you have a shower so you are fresh.

A decent full-body massage will cover most of your body, including your feet and head.  So make sure your toenails are clipped and you have washed your hair within 24 hours before.

You don’t want to turn up wearing clothes that have last night’s tea spilled on them and you are smelling.

Make a time and stick to it.

Massage tends to work on 15 minutes blocks.  So, if you make time, don’t turn up late, Chances are they already have a client booked in behind you.

Try to get there about 5 minutes early. So, you are prepped and on the massage table ready to go.

If you turn up 10 minutes late.  That’s 10 minutes that will take from your massage time.

Keep in mind their time is how they make money.

Turn off media

 Massage is as much about relaxing the mind as it’s about the body.

So, turn off your phones or tablets.  You don’t want to be 30 minutes into stress-free bliss and have your partner calling you to pick up milk.

It’s also a courtesy to the masseuse.  Trust me this includes vibrating.  Turn off completely and enjoy the moment.

Dress for success

This is where you need to follow your instincts and the instruction from the massage therapist.

Most massage therapists will give you instructions on stripping down and then leave the room so you can prepare yourself.

If they say strip down, and If you feel comfortable leaving your underwear on that’s ok.

Don’t feel obligated.  They will tell you if you leave your underwear on or not.

It’s easier for a massage therapist to work without having to worry about clothes.  But they are also really well trained to work around them.

Just don’t make it weird.  They will not laugh at your body.  They see plenty of flesh and different body shapes all day long.

Try talking to them

Clear communication is important.  They will often ask if the pressure is ok.  If you are wincing in pain, tell them.  A very hard massage can cause internal bleeding.

They do not want to hurt you.  They want you to relax.  Tell them if you have a tight muscle group. A lot of people store tension on their shoulders.  Tell the massage therapist about it.

If you have a body part that is funny to touch, tell them that too.

Nothing worse than if you have a phobia about people touching the back of your legs.  The first time a massage therapist touches you.  You scream in shock.

Some therapists like to work quietly. Others don’t mind chatting away.  So work out what you like.  It’s always fun to talk to someone new. You never know what you might learn.

Happy endings massage

If you are looking into a legit massage.  Asking for sexual favors at the end is the worst thing you can do.  You might find that your massage is caught short.

Now there is no judgment here either.  There are plenty of places that cater to Adult massage, also known as erotic massage.

Just don’t be a douchebag, and grab the masseuse’s hand put it on your crotch, and say ” how bout it “.  If that’s the type of massage etiquette you want, then google “adult massage near me”

Some men do get an erection when being massaged. Don’t be embarrassed, just relax and enjoy.

Just stick to the boundaries that the massage therapist has.  You will be fine.

Bodily functions etiquette

If you are relaxed and let a small fart out.  Just be polite and say please excuse me.

If you ate a bowl of chili the night before. Do not start gassing up the place.

Also, don’t make stupid jokes about pulling my finger.

It can happen when you are completely relaxed so just enjoy yourself.

If you need to pee, try to do that at the start before you start to get ready. Most massage places will have a toilet you can use.

If you need to go halfway through.  Then just say “excuse me I need to use the toilet:  And go.

Massage Tipping isn’t a town in China

Tips are perfectly ok to leave.  Most places cater for credit cards. If you have a gift certificate you might want to carry some cash in as well.

Massage is hard work, so paying them for the services will be appreciated.

That’s it really simple 10 things to consider for massage etiquette, stick to the above and you will be fine.

There is nothing better than getting a few friends together and hitting the green. We’ve covered of being fit and improving your golf game.  But what about the best golf accessories to have when you play.

With the right Golf accessories, you can take your golf game in a completely different direction.

5 Best Golf accessories that will improve your game

Here is a quick check-list of the best golf accessories that are must-haves. See if you have them in your golf cart, and if you don’t, put them right on top of your shopping list for golf accessories to have.

They also make great gifts if you have family and friends that are into golf..

Golfing Glasses

For rookies who keep losing their balls or golfers who cannot keep track of the balls they have hit, this is a god-send. People buy different types and brands of glasses that can keep the golf ball outlined against the grass.

These glasses remove light emitting from non-ball objects so that the only visible object in your line of vision is the errant ball.

Putting Greens

Putting greens that throw balls your way and provide inputs on your strokes are must-haves with serious golfers.

This is where pros will also invest a bit of money.  This allows them to practice every day, often, twice a day.  You can get them off Amazon pretty cheaply.

They also prefer using the same putter and same balls that they might use on the golfing green for better control.

Pros also watch other pros putting and swinging, which really helps with watching for your own errors.

So feel free to rent, buy, download, or borrow instructional DVDs, even get on Youtube for golf videos.  If you watch other pros then it might help you develop better swings which might help shave a few critical points off your total score.

Golf Tees

You may have thought that tees have become as sophisticated as possible but a new version is out these days.

This tee comes with a top surface that is made from a brush-like material. This prevents the tee from being ripped out or damaged because your club merely brushes past it instead of impacting it hard.

Scorekeepers

The hi-tech golfers all use the scorekeeper which looks a bit like the GameBoy but it keeps score and does all the mathematical calculations for them.

Watches

How about a golf wristwatch that displays your handicap? And ever thought about re-using your golf balls by cleaning them professionally with a golf ball cleaner?

Sneaky ways Weight Golf Accessories can help your handicap

Many pros will attach golf weights to the ends of their clubs. Then they practice their slow swings with the additional weights. This offers 3 distinct benefits –

One

They can quickly develop the correct set of muscles due to the additional resistance of the weights on the golf club.

Second

The extra weights add some zing to their regular golf fitness training and help in boosting motivation levels. This, in turn, allows the pros to come to the greens and practice regularly, without fail.

Third

It allows them to use the lighter clubs with greater power and accuracy so that their long shots cover a respectable distance with unerring precision.

Is your head already spinning and your mouth drooling? Well, keep drooling because there are probably more sophisticated golf accessories to have to hit the market even as you read this article.

Even as you read this article, there are golf fitness exercise programs that continue to positively revolutionize the games of many golfers around the country and indeed the world.

How to Improve your game with golf fitness

Having a decent golf exercise program that improves your fitness, will play a major role in helping many golfers achieve consistently good results on the course with their golf swing.

Go to any local golf course, and you will see many golfers who are yet to fully appreciate the potential of a golf exercise program and the impact on a golfer’s game that it can have.

A well-rounded golf fitness exercise program will concentrate on the muscles and parts of the body used when playing golf, especially during the golf swing.

improving golf fitness

How a Golf Exercise Program helps

A golf exercise program will be useful in helping the golfer attain more flexibility.  As well as strength on the course. It is important to remember that almost all of the body is used during a golf swing.

The obvious parts of the body are used in a golf swing.  Are the arms, upper body, and neck, however, the feet to the knees to the hamstrings and hips are just as crucial.

A golf fitness program will have a significant impact on the body to ensure that the muscles are ready for the strain that golf usually exerts on it.

Usually, a golf fitness program will combine dynamic strength and flexibility for your body.  As well as helping to improve stabilization and core strength.

Most of these exercises are able to be done with simple hand weights (dumbbells) and exercise tubing.

No gym required!

Too many golfers go to the gym. Plop down on a machine and rely on that to make their game better. That won’t help at all.

It’s important to keep the golf swing mechanics in mind when doing a golf fitness program.  Try talking to a personal trainer to help you with the right exercise program for you.

For most guys, it’s not surprising that hair loss myths are more well known than hair loss facts.

Since hair loss is such a common and unwelcome condition.  The public has been flooded with hair loss myths to promote sales of hair loss prevention products.

Many companies have jumped on the hair loss bandwagon because of our own enormous desires to eliminate hair loss from our lives.

Not to mention the unlimited amount of money that we (the public) are willing to spend on trying to save our hair.

This makes the hair loss market ripe for perpetuating myths that will increase sales. But, for the most part, they are just that, myths.

hair loss myths

5 common hair loss myths

Myth #1

Male Pattern Baldness comes from the mother’s side of the family and skips a generation. Not true.  There is no single gene that causes baldness.

Most researchers believe that MPB is a result of several different genes, inherited from both parents, interacting with each other to cause hair loss.

Hair loss myth #2

Pattern baldness affects only men. Just ask any woman suffering from pattern baldness, it’s not true. In fact, hair loss is just as common in women as it is in men.  It just usually occurs in a less virulent form and is easier to hide.

Also, women’s hair tends to thin out over the entire scalp area, whereas men’s hair thins in patches and at the forehead.

Hair loss myth #3

Poor blood flow to the scalp area causes hair loss. This is a misconception that has been perpetuated by companies selling hair loss products for years.

Ask any dermatologist and they will tell you, bald scalps have just as much blood flow as scalps full of hair. It is because of this blood flow to the bald scalp that hair transplants work so well.

Hair loss myth #4

If you haven’t lost your hair by 40, you aren’t going to. Again, not true. Age has nothing to do with it. If you are genetically predisposed to lose your hair, you are going to.

Just be grateful you made it to 40 with your hair still intact.

Hair loss myth #5

Stress makes your hair fall out. Okay, in some parts, this is true, but it takes a very traumatic event to cause enough stress that your hair falls out.

The common stress we experience on a daily basis will not make our hair fall out. In fact, some stress can actually increase the production of hair.

The Washup

Okay, I could go on and on about hair loss myths and not run out of things to talk about. My point is this. Most of the facts we think we know about hair loss are actually hair loss myths.


If you are suffering from hair loss and are worried.  Then consult your doctor.

Your physician will be able to give you a factual reason for your hair loss.  Then advise you on what types of treatments would work in your specific case.

One in nine men in America will be diagnosed with prostate cancer.  The prostate gland in men is a male reproductive organ that is about the size of a walnut, found at the base of the bladder. And possibly one of the areas men will neglect if their health is suffering.

prostate gland checkup

How to ask about the prostate gland in men

Next time you see your father, your uncle, or any older gentleman over age 60 or so, ask them about their prostate.

If you know the guy well enough, and he feels comfortable enough around you (some would say too comfortable).  He might just share a whole litany of the common prostate problems that are troubling him, or have troubled him, or will trouble him in the near future.

That’s because an enlarged prostate, benign prostatic hypertrophy, and even prostate cancer can be in the cards for every man past a certain age.

Getting older and the prostate gland

It’s the scary but true fact of getting old as a man. For instance, every man should know that prostate cancer is one of the most common prostate problems out there.

It tops the list of cancers that afflict men, happening in nearly as many men, roughly speaking, as breast cancer in women.

Prostate cancer doesn’t get the press that breast cancer does, however, probably because most men would rather not speak about what’s happening down there.

Do you know what a prostate is?

The second thing most men don’t but should know is exactly what that prostate is. A prostate is actually part of a man’s sexual organs.

Located just below the bladder in a man, wrapped around the urethra, the prostate is about the size of a walnut. Its main job in the birds-and-bees scheme of things is to add fluid to your sperm during ejaculation.

And most of the time, men don’t even realize they have a prostate because it’s a hidden internal organ.  But all men find out quickly what and where their prostate is when they suffer a common prostate problem.

Prostate problems aren’t just for the elderly

For instance, all men should know that prostate issues aren’t just for older men. Men under 50 can get prostatitis or an extremely painful infection of their prostate.

This is a swelling of the prostate that can cause fever, a burning sensation during urination, and fatigue.

All men over 50 should be aware of their number one most common prostate problem.  Which is an enlarged prostate, or benign prostatic hypertrophy.

This benign, or nonfatal condition, is actually far more common in older men than prostate cancer.  Which should provide relief to older men when they know it.

Men should all be aware of the symptoms of benign prostatic hypertrophy, such as leaking and dribbling during urination, a weak urine stream, trouble getting started with urination, and even small amounts of blood in the urine.

Get it checked sooner than later?

Although benign prostatic hypertrophy is more common than prostate cancer, men should be aware that the two can go hand in hand.

It’s not always the case, and many men with an enlarged prostate will never develop cancer. But it’s good to keep your eyes out for both because they can have similar symptoms.

Make sure if you or somebody you know are having issues. Get to the doctors as soon as possible.  The prostate gland in men issues can be treated if caught early.

As men, sexual health problems are never easy to talk about  We grew up thinking that Men need to be tough and ignore problems we might be facing.  Learning how to beat erectile dysfunction doesn’t need to be embarrassing or difficult.

Those sexual health problems might be tough to talk about, but they are a whole lot tougher to live with.

Learn how to beat erectile dysfunction

Healthy and fulfilling sex life is mandatory for a content existence. It is a very important part of the cement that holds a relationship together.

In fact, it adds the spark that any great relationship needs. However, too often, men keep quiet about their sexual problems, leading to embarrassment and frustration.

This is just silly because modern medicine has made many conditions curable.

Medicating erectile dysfunction

One such condition is Erectile Dysfunction.

The consistent or frequent inability to achieve an erection or sustain an erection is called Erectile Dysfunction, or ED for short.

Essentially, the rush of blood to the penis during arousal, which causes the penis to become turgid, is interrupted or insufficient.

There are many different reasons that can cause Erectile Dysfunction. Such as:

  • Many physiological conditions, neural or otherwise
  • Psychological disorders
  • Stress,
  • Too much to drink
  • Side effects to some medication.
  • Etc

Erectile Dysfunction is treatable

At any rate, Erectile Dysfunction is treatable and can be completely cured in most cases.

What’s needed is a quick trip to the doctor for a consult.  They will confirm if you do suffer from Erectile Dysfunction.

Once ED is confirmed, your physician may opt for several treatment options. Depending on the cause of Erectile Dysfunction, medication, minor surgery, therapy, or a combination of these could be the choice.

It is important for the patient to have a complete understanding of his condition and treatment routine.

Going the Medication route

If medication is chosen, your physician will probably recommend a prescription PDE5 inhibitor. The most famous of these is the revolutionary pill from Pfizer called Viagra.

That’s right the same Pfizer that created a vacation for Covid 19.

Viagra, when it hit the markets, was a sensational success with consumers. And, with good cause. It revolutionized the treatment of Erectile Dysfunction.

These drugs allow increased blood flow to the penis during arousal, leading to a successful and sustained erection.

If your physician prescribes Viagra, you will want to find out where to buy Viagra. You can fill your prescription at any pharmacy with ease.

However, if you are looking for a more cost-effective option, one that won’t strain your budget, then you’ll want to get on the Internet and look at online pharmacies.

Online pharmacies are the perfect way to buy Viagra from the comfort of your home at a significantly lower price.

The Washup up

How to beat Erectile Dysfunction is simple.  It’s curable.  All you have to do is speak to your physician about it and asking if Viagra is right for you.

Viagra may just be the perfect solution to your sexual problems.

Having and maintaining a shiny bald head is something that can be accomplished in a number of ways. Men who have gone bald over the course of time or through the decision of their own both face the same desire of keeping a shiny bald head.

Those who have gone bald because of medical reasons can also be desirous of maintaining a shiny bald head. Being bald has a number of perks and benefits. The benefits can be purely cosmetic or they can be practical such as the athletic advantages that come with being bald.

Whatever the reasons and background for a man being bald are, it is important that we know how to maintain a shiny bald head.

There are many different products, techniques, and methods to maintaining a shiny bald head. Each person should find out what works best for them.

It is important to consider our specific needs. Developing an effective routine for maintaining a healthy and glowing bald head is essential. We always want to look our best, and a bald head can be a major positive focal point for our image.

It is very attractive to have a shining and lustrous bald head. It can be a very captivating thing to look at as well. Maintaining a shiny bald head can be accomplished in a multitude of ways according to our different individual needs.

We will take a look at all of the possible ways to ensure that no one is left out.

Maintaining and caring for a bald head

There are a number of vital things that go into maintaining a shiny bald head. It is important that we consider all of our different options when it comes to caring for our heads.

Doing basic things such as staying hydrated or keeping the skin moisturized can go a long way in keeping a bald head looking healthy and glowing.

It is also important to make sure that our bald heads are protected from the sun’s harmful rays on very hot days. Making sure our vulnerable and exposed bald heads are well protected cannot be understated.

One of the first things we can do to maintain our shiny bald heads is to shave it regularly. It is important to shave it with care and attention.

Pick the right razor

Finding a nice and clean shaving razor is one of the first important choices and decisions we have to make in maintaining a shiny bald head.

Once we have found a razor that suits us well, we should make sure to use a shaving cream that we prefer so that we can begin the shaving process.

We should also make sure our skin is warm and moisturized to ensure the best possible shaving experience. It would be wise to consider using a shaving balm as well to help with any post-shaving problems that may occur.

It will help our skin be in the best possible condition.

After we are done shaving, there are many after-care products to consider to maintain our shiny bald head. There are a number of different moisturizers that are specifically for keeping the skin healthy and strong.

How to maintain the shine

Another aspect to focus on is the way we maintain our shine. There are many different cosmetic products to help produce an attractive shine.

A few examples of these products are:

  •  Hairsprays
  • Oils and waxes
  • Exfoliants
  • Shampoos
  • Scalp care products

Hairsprays are a simple and effective way to have a shiny bald head. Some men might not prefer them and opt to use other products.

Other popular and common products to use for our bald heads are oils and waxes. Oils and waxes are very effective scalp care products.

There are many different types of oils to choose from when considering this option of skincare. Coconut oil, baby oil, and avocado oil are three very beneficial oils that can help with maintaining our shiny bald head.

Maintaining our shine with these oils will help replenish and revitalize the skin. The oils have many helpful nutrients and vitamins in them as well.

Picking the right Shampoo

Finding the right shampoo is also vital to caring for our bald heads. It is important that our skin is well-nourished and not dehydrated.

Shampoo with ingredients that are helpful in maintaining a moisturized bald head is something that needs to be seriously considered and purchased. It’s crucial to find a shampoo that does not remove the essential moisture from the scalp.

Avoiding a shampoo with harmful chemicals and unwanted side effects is a key step in maintaining our healthy and glowing bald head. Having a shampoo with natural ingredients instead of artificial and chemical ingredients will ensure that our bald head is as healthy as possible.

Another important part of maintaining our shiny bald head is making sure it is exfoliated. Finding the best exfoliator to fit our needs is something that should be taken seriously. It is an important step in caring for our bald head because it removes unwanted dirt, skin cells, and oils.

Don’t forget to exfoliate

An exfoliant is a great way to remove the dead skin cells and make way for the healthy skin cells underneath. Using the exfoliator by rubbing it in circles and being gentle is very important to keep in mind as well.

The exfoliator will help our skin breathe well and help keep the pores open so that they do not become clogged. It will also help create a healthy shine for our heads.

Taking care of our shiny bald head can also come in the form of a scalp massage. Using a massage oil will aid in this process.

It is also important to not use your bare hands. We should massage our heads with circular repetitions as we do with an exfoliator, but in this scenario, it is beneficial to be a bit more firm to massage the scalp.

Massaging the scalp can help create a wonderful and shiny bald head.

How to keep a bald head smooth without shaving

Some men may prefer not to shave at all. In this case, we actually have many options if we prefer to not go the shaving route.

We might be wondering and thinking about how to keep a bald head smooth without shaving. Shaving is a highly effective and easy method to keep a bald head smooth and is used by many men.

However, shaving is not for everyone and can cause many unwanted and painful side effects. Finding the right method to care for our smooth bald head is essential.

Fortunately, there are ways to keep a bald head smooth without shaving.

Keeping a bald head smooth without shaving is something that is actually very simple because there are a multitude of different options.

Some of the options include:

  • Clippers
  • Tweezers
  • Creams
  • Waxing
  • Sugaring
  • Laser treatment
  •  Electrolysis

The above-mentioned options are all effective and possible ways we can maintain a smooth bald head without shaving.

Finding out which one is suitable for our needs and preferences is very important. It helps put our minds at ease when we realize that there are a number of different options.

Each option is unique in its own way. Taking a look at each of these options in-depth will help us understand how to keep a bald head shiny without shaving.

Tweezer or clippers for a bald head

Using clippers or tweezers is a very simple and accessible method when thinking about how to keep a bald head smooth without shaving.

Using clippers can be very useful, especially if shaving bothers or irritates our skin. Clippers might not give as close of a cut as shaving does, but it is something that should be considered if shaving is not an option for us.

Using tweezers afterward can also help pluck out the hair follicles that were difficult to remove while using the clippers. However, using tweezers can be painful for some people. If this is the case, then it is best not to use tweezers.

Should you use creams

Another method to consider when thinking about how to keep a bald head smooth without shaving is the use of creams.

There are special depilatory creams that will remove our hair follicles much like tweezing, except this method is much less painful. Simply wiping away the cream after a certain amount of time will remove the hair from our heads.

It is a very simple and effective method when compared to shaving. It is important to consider how our head and skin will react to the cream as well.

Some people may have an allergic or inflammatory reaction to the creams, so that is something to keep in mind.

The next type of method when thinking about how to keep a bald head smooth without shaving is waxing. Waxing can be a bit painful, but the results of it can last for a long time compared to creams or shaving. There are different types of waxes to consider if we choose this method.

The two main types of waxes are hard wax and soft wax. Hard wax is heated up and put directly on our heads. Soft wax utilizes strips, whereas hard wax does not. Whichever type of wax we choose will lead to us having a very smooth bald head.

It can be even more effective than shaving. When thinking about whether to use wax or not, we might ask ourselves if we should have it done by a professional or do it ourselves?

Do you need a professional?

Having a professional do it for us can be very helpful given how difficult and painful waxing can be.

Sugaring is another method we can use when thinking about how to keep a bald head smooth without shaving.

Sugaring is creating a paste that will help remove the hair from the scalp. Sugar, water, honey, and lemon juice are the common and simple ingredients that make up the paste.

The paste is used in a similar fashion as wax. Sugaring is much less painful than waxing. It is also easier on the scalp as well. It is important to see how our skin reacts to it before fully engaging in this method.

Laser treatment is an option to consider when thinking about how to keep a bald head smooth without shaving. This is more an option that may be expensive and not for everyone. It is a very effective method despite its cost.

When compared to shaving, laser treatment can remove the hair for several months. It is important to consider how our scalp and skin will be affected by the laser treatment before undergoing it.

Electrolysis is a very conclusive method to consider when thinking about how to keep a bald head smooth without shaving. Electrolysis is the permanent removal of hair follicles.

It uses needles and can hurt a great deal. It is also a method that might require several appointments to completely remove the hair follicles from ever coming back.

We would never have to shave, use a cream, wax, or any other type of method again because electrolysis is permanent.

Before embarking on this route, it is important to consider all of the ramifications involved with this process.

The washup

As we have explored countless different ways and methods of keeping our bald heads smooth and shiny, it is important to reflect on everything and make choices according to our needs.

Each one of us is different, and we each have different preferences and pain thresholds. Whichever method we choose, having a shiny bald head will be the outcome.

We should embrace our bald heads with confidence because we put a great deal of thought and time into maintaining their vibrant glow.
