Here Is A Little Known Secret – Back Shaving Is Easy!!!
I’ve been shaving my back for close to ten years now and owning a website dedicated to back shaving so I like to think I have a little authority on this subject. I would like to address a common question many new to back shaving men might have, what is the easiest way to shave your back?
I started this website to help men with back hair and to provide honesty and transparency.
Dude, Trust Me It’s Not Hard But It Sure Can Be…
Thankfully, shaving your back can be easy with the right tools and knowledge. But it also can be a lot harder with the wrong tools and also the wrong information.
When I first started trying to shave my back there were no real back shavers to buy, there just wasn’t a market dedicated to this “weird” and “unexplored” hygiene product. I often tried to tape beard razors and hair clippers to a stick and tried to shave my back hair with little success. This (back shaving) back then was hard and not working at all.
I will lay out the best tools as well as cut through the bullshit knowledge floating around the internet pertaining to shaving your back.
Time & Safety
With modern design and engineering, shaving your back is easy and takes usually less than 10 minutes. Most importantly it is very safe as long as you follow the instructions provided by the manufacturer.
Important safety note: you should avoid shaving any moles, scars, or pimples on your back to avoid cutting yourself. Just shave right up next to them with going over them. Just take your time when first using a back shaver for the first time. It is not a race, just make slow and straight deliberate controlled strokes and you will be just fine. I know I was kinda scared the first couple of times using a dedicated back shaver but you will become a seasoned pro after just a few times of using it.
Like I said it is easy, don’t let other people make it seem hard.
The Right Tools
I am just going to come out and say it if you want the best back shaver on the market right now get the Bakblade 2.0 Elite Plus.
Now there are nuances in the world of back shaving and I understand that the Bakblade might not be for everyone. But for most men out there that want the best back shaver to get the job done with the least amount of hassle to it. Just get the Bakblade 2.0 Elite Plus! It is my highest-ranked back shaver to date. Every model of Bakblade (there have been a total of 3 models so far) has been great and for each model you have seen vast improvement, this only comes from passion and integrity.
If you want to find out more about the Bakblade 2.0 Elite Plus before purchasing read my full in-depth review of this amazing back shaver here, Bakblade 2.0 Elite Plus Back Shaver Review.
I have basically reviewed, used, and owned every back shaver on the marketplace. So, yeah I know what I am talking about here. I have bought most of these with my own money to provide knowledge to my visitors and to help make a better-informed decision. On a selfish note, I wanted the best back shaver out there.
If You Want To Make A More Informed Decision
If you want to know all the nuances and there are some important ones head on over to my post, Which Back Shaver Is Right For Me? Different Back Shavers Explained. I go over all the different styles of back shavers and their positives and negatives. This will leave you with the type of back shaver you personally will want as well as what back shaver to buy.
The Wrong Tools
There are many back shavers to avoid buying! In fact, I wrote a whole article on ones to stay away from here, Back Shaver’s You Should Avoid Buying. The world of back shaving is riddled with cheap Chinese junk and most of the time these should be avoided.
Some General Guidelines
You get what you pay for. This is a general consensus for everything, right? No different in the world of back shaving. I would much rather pay more money for a quality product than spend the money wasted on an inferior product.
Any back shaver that uses a standard beard razor attached to the end of any handle is the WRONG TOOL! These types of back shaver can make back shaver a real chore because a standard beard razor is not designed to handle the length of back hair and it will quickly clog with hair. Leaving you to constantly have to clean the razor out and feeling frustrated.
The Right Knowledge
Dry shaving is the easiest and most effective I have found for shaving my back.
What does dry shaving mean?
Dry shaving simply means just taking off your shirt and shaving your back without any creams or water, your back is completely dry. Simple, right?
Disregard videos, websites, or people that tell you to shave your back in the shower or to use shaving creams on your back. Complete nonsense!
Dry shaving is simpler and more effective. The hair just falls away to the floor instead of clogging the razor blade when dry shaving, as opposed to shaving wet. When shaving wet you have more clogs as the hair stays attached to the razor and doesn’t fall away from the razor. Thus leaving you with more clogs.
Plus shaving in the shower can potentially clog up your drain leaving you or a plumber to fix the problem. Uhmm yeah, I don’t that headache.
You can prep the skin for back shaving by taking a shower beforehand and drying off completely before shaving your back. I personally find this unnecessary.
Just dry shave your back and keep it simple.
The Wrong Knowledge
Most websites with information about back shaving state all these steps you need to take to shave your back. Well, it is good for some general information and knowledge it often leaves the person feeling like it is more complicated than it really needs to be. This isn’t brain surgery, it’s shaving back hair. Not too complicated.
They tell you to prep your back and use shaving cream. No, no, no! Again making it more complicated than it needs to be. I even fell into this trap myself as I wondered maybe it will work better. It didn’t and it took some time before I realized that it wasn’t helping it was making it worse.
The Worst Knowledge
By far and away the worst knowledge out there on the internet are websites that promote and review back shavers without ever using or even owning a back shaver. They just write a review about a particular back shaver from information provided online, not from personal experience. I’m not kidding here at all. Most reviews never post any unique picture of the product showing proof of ownership. Just writing about it. I have any seen an article of a woman writing about a back shaver.
Not only that but some of the worst back shavers I have reviewed are listed in their top back shaver lists. This just infuriates me to no end. The best advice is to avoid reviews without solid proof they own the product. A unique picture or video showing ownership, then at least you know they own it.
The Final Shave
Back shaving is easy! Just remember to keep it simple and you will have the best results.
