Skin from the English band Skunk Anansie made it look hot. Kanye’s ex, Amber Rose, rocked it. Even Rihanna and LaLa Vasquez-Anthony have all put some sort of spin on the bald head. Seeing a woman with a bald head is no longer abnormal. More and more women are embracing the trend and looking for ways to sport the bald look.

There are many reasons why a woman may decide that they want to be bald. Some women do it for fashion or trendy reasons. Consider the model named Yoko. She is a beautiful woman from Trinidad that decided to shave her head in the 1980’s. She has been bald ever since.

Other women have decided to become bald because they are suffering from a medical condition. Alopecia and cancer are two common medical ailments that may be the determining factor in women deciding to shave their head bald.

It takes a lot of courage for a woman to walk around with a bald head. She has to have a high level of self-confidence to be able to handle the amount of staring eyes and naysayers that will come her way.

Some women are under the assumption that all they have to do to have a bald head is to shave their head. It is not quite that simple, but there are things that you can do to prepare yourself for the transformation.

Shave Your Hair Off

You can do this step by yourself, or you can go to a professional barber or hairstylist. This would be a great time to donate your hair to a worthy charity instead of throwing it in the garbage. At this point, you can decide if you want to go for a close-cropped style, or if you want to be as smooth as a cue ball. If you want a cropped style, an electric razor or a clipper without a guard can handle the job for you. A Nigerian woman that wants her head completely smooth should ask the stylist to use a razor that will get as close to the scalp as possible without cutting the skin.

How to Maintain Your Bald Look

Since you no longer have hair, you do not have to deal with the normal hair issues that most women do. But, you still have to maintain your look. You can use castile soap or raw black soap on your scalp to help exfoliate dead skin cells.

Protect Your Head

Now that you are bald, your skin will be exposed to wind, rain, and sun just like other areas of your body. Make sure you protect your scalp by applying sunscreen whenever you are about to go outside.

Rock Your New Look

You probably will not know how you look with a bald head until you actually have one. Once your head is shaved, you will either look amazing or alien. There are simple ways to enhance the features of your face. Start wearing more makeup and buy a few pairs of beautiful earrings. These two things will help take away the focus on your head and help others see your overall beauty.
