Summary of My Review on Wahl Professional 8061
Razors or blades work comfortably for white men and others whose hairs are straight and non-curly. But for dark-skinned men with typically curlier hairs and who often experience the problem of ingrown hair, blade or razor shaving is an ordeal that can disfigure the face causing skin discoloration and ugly razor bumps. This is something that can definitely affect someone’s self-esteem.

How To Use Wahl Professional 8061 Shaver
- Read the user manual properly before you use the shaver.
- Either plug it or use its battery as a power source. Turn it on in readiness for use and use a mirror when shaving yourself.
- Adjust its blade for the hair-length you desire, and make sure that the front and black blades overlap properly.
- Hold the shaver against the direction of hair growth and trim the hair by making straight and circular movements, pressing the shaver gently on the skin.
- Use your free hand to stretch the skin and allow the shaver to catch and cut the hair quickly and cleanly, and without nicks and cuts.
- After shaving, make sure to clean the shaver properly.
How To Clean Wahl Professional 8061 5-Star Shaver
- Cleaning the shaver is necessary to prevent dead skin and hair buildup, and to maintain the blades and motor in optimal running condition.
- Quick-cleaning is necessary after every shave. For quick cleaning, spray the blades with Wahl Blade Coolant and then brush out hair with the cleaning brush. Then use Wahl Oil to lubricate it before wiping out excess oil and coolant with a towel.
- For deep cleaning, you will need to disassemble the unit for proper cleaning, and then to use a screwdriver to remove screws from the top of the shaver to allow you to remove the upper plate.
- Take off both the bottom plate and top plate, lay them to the side, and spray Wahl Blade Ice Coolant on the blades and on the exterior of the shaver. Brush the shaver with the cleaning brush and then remove excess ice coolant with a towel.
- Re-align the top shaver blade with the bottom shaver blade, and restore them back to the top of the shaver. Put back the screws and tighten them.
