Why Use a Shavers for Back hair?
It’s safe to say that not everyone has the same level of back hair on their body, but that doesn’t mean back hair shavers are only for the worst cases. Even if you have a few stray hairs spaced out on your back from time to time, finding a way to remove them can prove troublesome on your own.
You can always get it waxed, or maybe have someone help you, but neither of those is an ideal approach for most guys. It’s better to simply take care of it on your own, but the means for this needs to be something that actually works well.
That’s where shavers for back hairs come in. Designed to be used on your own, these shavers are made to quickly and easily back hair removal by using either a razor blade, or an electric blade similar to what you’d find on a beard and neck trimmer.
The concept is pretty simple: a shaver and razor with a longer handle so you can reach those awkward spots on your back. Problem solved.
Types of Back Shavers
For the most part, back shavers are classified in two different categories: manual and electric.
The majority of the products found on this list are manual shavers, which in a way are basically bigger versions of a common leg or facial fazor.
With manual back shavers, you have a long handle, and then a razor assembly mounted on the end that does all the work. These blades are usually wider than a conventional razor, and have a more flexible design that is more accommodating to the curves on your back.
Due to the design of the razor, most manual shavers can be used on both wet and dry skin, but it’s always best to double-check each product first.
Electric back shavers are essentially modified versions of beard and neck trimmers. They use the same type of motor, and most of the same blades, but comes with an extender you can attach to the device so you can reach all the areas of your back.
While electric back shavers are similar to beard and neck trimmers, the slight difference in build and blade assemblies means they are more geared for the softer, less coarse hair on your back. If you try to use on on your neck or face, you’ll get poor results, so don’t purchase one thinking you can use it just anywhere.
In the end, make sure you consider all the points we mentioned about what to look for in a back hair shaver before investing in one. You ideally want the shaver to last you at least a year; you don’t want to be stuck with the wrong kind.
The Bakblade 1.0 is an all rounder. It is our top recommendation after having surveyed a good 20 shavers from the market. Its design is straightforward and it gives a pretty admirable finish when it’s done.
The MANGROOMER Ultimate Pro is neat for people looking for long reaches. It can be operated easily at various angles which makes it all the more convenient. The Razorba is well reviewed and so you can buy it if you’re looking for the market’s most trusted shaver. Mangroomer Do-it-yourself perhaps works best for regular household use, since it isn’t as fancy to look at but is pretty affordable. The only problem is the batteries, as we’ve come to know from online reviews, though we didn’t personally face an issue. When talking about longevity, the BRO SHAVER definitely stands out owing to the huge stock of refills that it ships with the package. Beardeur Ultimate is another good budget deal, coming under 20 dollars. Users with sensitive skin may prefer the Evantek Back Hair Shaver, since it is well padded at the grip (making pressure more even at the zone of application) and ships with a nice sponge and brush to exfoliate to prepare for neat skin. Philips Norelco Bodygroom Series 3100 is perhaps the most versatile of the lot we surveyed, thanks to its hypoallergenic tips and continuous cordless use that lasts as long as 50 whole minutes. YISCOR is the one a beginner should buy since it is so durable and convenient to wield at the handle. And our final selection, the Potou Back Shaver gets its place because of its design, padding and neat price.
