Links for the Hairless
These links are all about head-shaving or have something to do with being bald-by-choice. Product sites are listed at the bottom of the page. Links for and about bald women are on this page. If you want even more links, check out the ShaverLog, as I sometimes link to pages that I haven't gotten around to adding here.
Inspiring posts about the bald and bald-by-choice, from the blog Hair Loss Geeks.

The website for those who believe that God made a few perfect heads, and on the rest he put hair. They reject the idea that hair equals happiness, with which I agree fully and completely. Be proud!
This site describes itself as a commercial-free source of information about hair removal methods. A major part of its focus seems to be exposing false claims made by companies and people who sell hair removal products. Definitely worth checking out if you're looking at alternatives to shaving.

A large site detailing many methods of removing hair from the body. They have a brief section on head-shaving as well.
A Yahoo! Club intended for the intentionally bald gentleman, with a message board, chat room, and links. A wonderful site, especially if you're looking for encouragement or advice on shaving your own head. Definitely worth a look!
Another Yahoo! Club, but this one is for men who are bald (either naturally or by choice) and, well, proud of it.

, and the review is here
Somerset's produces a fine shaving oil, which I was fortunate enough to find in a local store recently. I've posted a review of Somerset's
This company makes a product that claims to be "effective for razor bumps, razor burn, ingrown hairs and other shaving irritations." It's also supposed to soften and soothe the skin. I've received a sample, and will post a review soon.
This company cryogenically tempers razor blades. They claim that the blades last 3 times as long as regular (non-cryo'd) blades. I shaved with one for around 2 months before switching it out (it wasn't too dull to use, but I wanted to test a different blade and didn't want to wait). The guy in charge also sells them on Ebay, and has had excellent feedback
from buyers. They definitely seem worthwhile.
A company in California designed a razor specifically for us head-shavers. My review is here
