Going bald was a choice I consciously made and the reason for it were for easier maintenance due to my active lifestyle primarily. And of course the advantage it gives me when i am doing the sports as it would meant less time spend washing my hair after, and less time wasted trying to dry them. Also, I don't have to worry about having to comb anything, let alone worry if the gel, wax or cream I use would run out, or if I am past the "in-fashion" hairstyle. Heading to the barber can be an expensive affair as it will cost anything between RM10 to RM12 to get a cut.
Wahl Super Taper - Professional Clipper
I got this from a hair care supply shop after buying cheaper version from shops selling China (cheap) product. Those RM20 clippers does their job, but there is always the risk that the clipper were not built sturdily and risking your scalp to be trimmed off due to sub-standard finishing. This Wahl Super Taper is 12 times more expensive than the cheaper clippers and it was an investment. Moreover, this is made in USA as printed and verified in the unit (free of Made In China sticker)

This clipper came with a 1-year warranty and at the time I wrote this, I have been using this for the past 3-years. You must be wondering why I review something I bought 3-years ago? Well, truth was, this post was meant to be posted 3-years ago, but due to work/career change and having other priorities in life, 26 others draft blogs/review/report has taken a back seat.
Now, on retrospect, this unit, which was bought a good 3+ years (April 2013) ago has been used at least once a week - as I usually will shave twice a week (if i remember). If you go by that "Return of Investment" ROI, I already made back the initial RM240 investment I did after shaving/clipping for 24 times by year end 2013. So, yes, apart from electricity bills (minimal, say RM1 for a 5-mins buzz), I've been getting "free hair cut"done at home in the toilet/porch by myself.

|The manual comes with tips on cutting hair using the clipper - if you decide to make a second income as a barber.|
I considered the clipper's attachment as good to have/nice to have as I've not used it ever on myself. But if you are new to this, you may want to learn using it with attachment if you are fearful that the clips will cut you. if there is any comfort, I've not been injured using this.
