LATROY HAWKINS - DOMECARE SOLUTIONS BRAND AMBASSADOR
Hometown: I was born and raised in Gary Indiana, 30 miles to the East of Chicago, right on Lake Michigan. I married my wife in 2000 and moved to Frisco, Texas where my (now 15 year old) daughter, Ms. Troi Lesley Darlene was born.

Career History: I was drafted by the Minnesota Twins in 1991 as a pitcher. I pitched in the minor leagues for four years and made my Major League debut in 1995. I pitched in the Major Leagues for 21 years with 11 different teams including: Minnesota twins, Chicago Cubs, San Francisco Giants, Baltimore Orioles, Colorado Rockies, New York Yankees, Houston Astros, Milwaukee Brewers, Los Angeles Angels, New York Mets, Colorado Rockies  (for the second time), and the Toronto Bluejays. I made 1042 pitching appearances and I am number 10 on the all time games pitched list in Major League history. I won the National League Championship in 2007 with the Colorado Rockies.

Favorite DomeCare Solutions product: My favorite product is the Dome Shave Gel. I have been shaving my head for 18 years and Dome Care Solutions Dome Shave Gel has given me the smoothest shave head shave that I have ever had. I also love the finishing serum. It gives my head that last bit of care that I need before I walk out the house and it keeps the wrinkles away.

Favorite Razor: Mach3. I've used this Razor for 16 years. I've tried other razors and I don't get as smooth of a shave as I do with Mach3.


Grooming Tip: My grooming tip for men is to whenever possible shave in the shower. The head is soft from the water and it makes for a great shave.  

Favorite Past Time: Spending time with the family, traveling the world, hunting, and doing whatever my family wants to do.

Favorite Book: Ego is the Enemy by Ryan Holiday. 

Music Currently in Rotation: Drake, Florida Georgia LINE, Zach Brown band, and all music from the 90's.

Head Shaving and Razor Bumps
There is nothing worse than ingrown hairs and razor bumps on a bald head and neck. They’re uncomfortable and they look awful. Here are a few tips to help you keep razor bumps and ingrown hairs at bay.

Shave with the grain - Shaving with the grain is gentle and ensures hair is cut above the skin’s surface. Shaving against the grain is a recipe for ingrown hairs; it causes the razor to pull and lift hair cutting it below the surface of the skin. Hair can become trapped under the skin’s surface resulting in ingrown hairs and bumpy inflammation.

Exfoliate - Exfoliating removes dead skin cells from the surface layers of the skin revealing healthier smooth skin. Exfoliating can also help to dislodge ingrown hairs. Choose you exfoliant wisely. Salicylic acid, glycolic acid and sugar are great options.

Be gentle - Avoid shaving & skincare products with fragrances, coloring agents and harsh preservatives. Even some natural ingredients are far too harsh for the skin. Harsh ingredients trigger inflammation resulting in less-than smooth skin. Spare your bald head and spray your cologne elsewhere. See our article Aftershave for the Head-Shaver for a helpful list of ingredients to embrace and avoid.

Shave hydrated -  A moisturizing shave gel or cream will keep your skin and hair soft and pliable. When the hair is soft less pressure is needed when shaving. 

These tips will have you on your way to a smooth and bump-free bald head. 








DOMECARE SOLUTIONS BRAND AMBASSADOR: NOTCH

Hometown: New Orleans. I’ve been in San Francisco for 9 years.

Barbering Experience:I’ve been a barber for 13 years; 7 years as the owner of Details Barbershop

Grooming Tip: A grooming tip specifically for men who shave their heads is to shave consistently. Shaving on a regular schedule encourages a consistent growth pattern. This helps reduce irritation because the scalp becomes accustomed to the shaving routine. When you shave your head, you shouldn't let it grow out too much because it looks sloppy. I personally shave my head every other day. Another grooming tip is to use Aloe Vera, preferably directly from the plant. Aloe reduces irritation, treats blemishes, moisturizes and relieves ingrown hairs, especially for men of color.

Favorite DomeCare Solutions Product: Dome Shine-Absorbing Anti-Aging Finishing Serum is my favorite product to use personally and on clients. It makes a shaved head feel satiny smooth, and you can feel the difference in the health of the scalp. The Dome Shave Gel is another favorite. I like using the Dome Shave Gel on my clients because it’s clear and I can see exactly where I’m shaving. A small amount of Shave Gel goes a long way; it doesn’t clog the razor and it’s clean. You can’t see through traditional shave creams so there is room for error and they can be messy. Many of my clients work nearby in the Financial District & Union Square; they come to my shop for shaves and haircuts on their lunch breaks. My clients need to leave my chair fresh and clean to go back to work.

Favorite Razor for Use on Clients:  MD Dragon Straight Razor with Dorco blades.

Favorite Razor for Personal Use: Gillette Fusion

Tips for New Barbers:Be consistent, considerate and professional. Availability for clients is key.

Favorite Pastime:Golfing. My favorite golf course in The Bay is Tilden Park in Berkeley.

Favorite Book: 48 Laws of Power

Record on Repeat:Jay-Z’s Magna Carta. Favorite song is Somewhereinamerica.


You can catch Notch Tuesday-Saturday 10am-7pm at Details Barbershop in San Francisco’s Union Square. 166 Geary St. Suite 1204 San Francisco, 94108.

Head Shaving & Anti-Aging Skincare

Sun spots, discolorations, a leathery texture and fine lines are tell-tale signs of an unhealthy bald head. The good news is with a proper shaving and skincare regimen any man can have a healthier bald dome. The main culprits of visible damage are exposure to harmful environmental elements such as UV rays, pollution and the use of irritating grooming products. Anti-aging skincare is the practice of using gentle, multi-functional grooming preparations that reduce and prevent the signs of aging. Embracing the following types of ingredients in your head shaving routine will have you on your way to a healthy bald dome.

Antioxidants are ingredients that neutralize damage caused from environmental factors such as UV rays, smog and smoke. Some antioxidants can stimulate collagen production, help skin generate healthier skin cells and fade discolorations. Antioxidants can also boost collagen production and strengthen the support structure of the skin, softening the appearance of fine lines.

Embrace: Vitamin C, Vitamin A, Vitamin E, Niacinamide, Alpha Lipoic Acid & Coenzyme q10.

Anti-irritants are ingredients that reduce skin irritation and inflammation. Irritation can be caused by shaving, using irritating ingredients or simply from having sensitive skin. Skin irritation is problematic because it breaks down collagen, destructs the skins natural barrier, can cause the skin to become even more sensitive and can even trigger oil production. Anti-irritants can quickly calm skin and reduce inflammation which balances skin improving its overall health.

Embrace:Allantoin, Aloe Vera Extract, Centella Asiatica, Green Tea Extract & Willow Herb Extract.

Exfoliants work by removing dead and thickened surface layers of the skin and some exfoliate inside the pores. As skin ages,  so does the process of shedding skin cells. Exfoliating removes these thickened layers revealing a more vibrant and evenly-toned bald head. Exfoliation inside the pores can treat and prevent ingrown hairs. Regular exfoliation can also reduce discolorations.

Embrace: Glycolic Acid, Salicylic Acid & Sugar.

Sunscreen protects skin from photoaging from damaging UVA & UVB rays. Exposure to the sun is the quickest way to damage the scalp and cause premature aging such has wrinkles, discolorations and a rough texture. Applying SPF daily, even on cloudy days, will keep a bald head healthy for the long-term.

Embrace: An SPF product labeled "broad spectrum" will provide UVA & UVB protection. Sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher is best. Don't forget to reapply! 

Embrace: When spending an extended time in the sun and at times when the sun is most intense (typically 10 am to 2 pm) take protection a step further and wear a cap.

It's never too early or too late to start using high quality, multi-functional shaving and skin care products and embracing these excellent ingredients. There are many exceptional skincare ingredients available. We encourage you to research, experiment and find a regimen that works best for you. With little effort, you will have a noticeably healthy bald head.

Aftershave for the Head-Shaver
Choosing the right aftershave is an important step of a balanced shaving and skincare routine. This is especially true for men who shave their heads as the scalp tends to be sensitive. Numerous aftershave products on the market touted as being invigorating, cooling and fast-acting are packed with irritating ingredients. Many men confuse the tingling and sometimes burning sensation these products create as “working.” Tingling, stinging and burning are signs of irritation. Harsh alcohols and fragrances are highly irritating and drying. Many naturally-derived ingredients are harsh and can trigger inflammation, dryness and flakiness. Constantly exposing skin to irritation damages the skin's natural protective barrier, breaks down collagen and destructs skin cells. This structural damage leads to unhealthy skin, which can appear dry, bumpy and uneven. Not a good look for a guy sporting a shaved head.

A post-shave product should feel comfortable and soothing while helping skin return to its natural moisture balance. A well-formulated aftershave product should include anti-irritants, skin healing agents, emollients and antioxidants. Anti-irritants & skin healing agents soothe skin and help heal minor nicks. Skin conditioning agents and emollients immediately relieve dryness and soften skin. Antioxidants neutralize free radicals, boost collagen production and encourage the development of healthier skin cells. Treating the scalp with an irritant-free aftershave liquid, balm or lotion that includes a winning combination of ingredients will promote a healthier better-looking bald head.

Here is a list of ingredients to embrace and avoid

Vitamin C
Glycerin
Vitamin E
Vitamin A
Allatoinin
Niacinamide
Sodium Hyaluronate
Acetylsalicylic Acid
