A bald head is a uniquely stylish look. And while there are many reasons why someone might choose to shave their head, one of the most popular is the aesthetic of a shiny, polished dome.

Find out how you can create the perfect shine for your own head!

Plus, we've got you covered if the shine is not your style and you'd rather go matte!

The Scientific Reason Behind the Shine

Bald heads are often described as looking "polished" or "well-kept." And it turns out that there's a scientific reason behind that perception. When hair is present on the head, it actually absorbs some of the oil and doesn't reflect light.

This means that when you have a bald head, there is a thin layer of oil that is reflecting light back, creating that beautiful, healthy shine.

Whether your prefer some shine or something more matte, we recommend that you use products designed specifically for bald heads. These collections will offer better options to get your desired result in both cases.

How to Create the Perfect Shine

Whether you want your bald head to look like a mirror or you're just looking for a little extra polish, there are a few things you can do to create the perfect shine.

  1. Make sure your head is clean. This means using a gentle cleanser and exfoliating regularly to avoid buildup on the scalp.
  2. Apply a quality oil or cream to add hydration and help create a smooth surface.
  3. Just remember not to overdo it—too much oil can give your head an unwanted greasy appearance.

Tone Down Shine and Rock a Matte Look Instead

Bald men know all too well the challenges of being bald, one of which is the infamous shine or glare of your skull. While some bald men prefer a shiny look, others would rather have a more matte appearance. There are a variety of ways that one can achieve a matte appearance on their bald head!

1. Rather than shaving closely, leave a little stubble on your head to reduce shine.

2. Exfoliate your scalp regularly while washing to remove dead skin cells and achieve a matte finish.

3. Choose products that are not oily or greasy to reduce the shine on your bald head.

To Shine Or Not To Shine

A bald head is an impressive and stylish look no matter the shine!

It's all about personal style and preference. When you look in the mirror, which look makes you smile with confidence?

As long as you keep your bald skin healthy, you're going to look great either way!
