Nothing will make you feel more exposed or free than a buzzcut (or something close to it). It’s scary and exhilarating. It feels shocking and completely sane. A big chop is all of the things. After a lot of snips and fading, your face is suddenly, like, out there, and for a couple of minutes, you stare in the mirror wondering if you’ve made a huge mistake. I definitely had a panic attack the first time I did it, but this time around, I’m mostly concerned about finding the best scalp products and finally mastering faux lashes.
I knew ahead of time that my edges were going to look like a struggle fest because I went overboard with the braids and twists until they literally snatched some of them away. Thankfully, I’ve gotten over caring about how they look to other people and am concerned with simply treating them better. So for the past couple of weeks, I’ve tried a hefty amount of products whose purpose is to directly address scalp health. And no, I’m not just talking about scalp scrubs. My top favorites are a mix of cleansers, stylers, oils and one very pricey serum.
Ultimately, you don’t have to have short hair to use any of these. Your scalp needs love regardless of how much hair is covering it, so keep scrolling to get schooled.
