The Mangroomer Do-It-Yourself Electric Back Shaver is absolutely the best way to get rid of unwanted back hair. This one-of-a-kind device features a large 1.5-inch blade that enables you to shave larger areas of your back with ease. The Mangroomer's cutting-edge blade design delivers extremely close and smooth results without the potential of ingrown hairs that are commonly caused by straight edge and foil shavers. And with the unique patent-pending design, the Mangroomer opens to a staggering 135-degrees so you can reach all areas of your back from different angles with ease.

Rid yourself of unsightly, unwanted back hair without waxing, chemicals, laser, or electrolysis -- all from the comfort and privacy of your own home.
Why is the Mangroomer Right for You?
  • One time purchase with one low cost.

  • Offers a fully extendable and adjustable handle that locks into place at various lengths to reach even the most difficult middle and lower portions of the back for men of all sizes.
  • Allows you to rid yourself of unwanted back hair in the privacy of your own home -- not some fancy or overpriced salon or spa.
  • Completely painless, unlike waxing, chemicals, laser, or electrolysis.
  • Folds into a neat, compact size for discreet storage or travel.
  • Shave your back whenever you feel you need it, and it is perfect for quick touch ups.
Mangroomer vs. Alternate Hair Removal Options
Before the Mangroomer, there were three hair removal options -- waxing, chemicals, and laser/electrolysis. Waxing is an effective way to remove hair, but it is incredibly painful. Waxing actually rips hairs right out of their follicles, violently removing them from your body. And since you certainly can't wax your own back, you'll need to make an appointment and pay someone to do apply the wax and rip it off your back with your hair.

Chemicals are also another viable option for hair removal, but it too comes with it's own set of cons. With chemical treatment there is a chance that skin irritation and scarring may occur, and similar to waxing, chemical treatment must be applied by someone else. Chemical treatments are also notorious for noxious fumes that make for an uncomfortable and embarrassing hair loss treatment.

The third treatment option, laser/electrolysis hair removal, is very expensive and, similar to the other treatment options, it cannot be done in the comfort and privacy of your own home. It requires multiple treatments and does not stop the growth of any new hair, plus it doesn't even guarantee that it will stop the hair growth of treated follicles. Combine these embarrassing option with expensive costs and you'll see why some many people are switching to the Mangroomer.



The Mangroomer folds out to whopping 135-degrees.


It is a breeze to reach those difficult, hairy lower-back areas.


The shaver even extends to tackle the hard-to-reach middle back.
Dispelling the Shaving Myth
Does shaving make your hair grow back thicker? Darker? Faster? According to a study from the Mayo Clinic the answer is no. In an article from Mayo Clinic dermatologist Lawrence Gibson, M.D. and his colleagues, the shaving myth is officially debunked: shaving hair doesn't make it grow back thicker. It also doesn't affect the color or rate of growth. The color, location, thickness and length of hair on your body mainly depends on genetics and hormones. After you shave body hair, it may feel coarse or stubbly for a time as it grows out. During this phase body hair may be more noticeable, and it may appear darker or thicker, but it's not. The Mayo Clinic article also stated that you should see your doctor if you have a sudden increase in facial or body hair.

How the Mangroomer Can Improve Your Life

  • Look and Feel Clean and Manicured -- Eliminating unsightly back hair presents a more refined, clean image to others.
  • Confidence -- Increase your confidence knowing that you are "back hair free" and no one will be staring or snickering at you, or get turned off by unsightly back hair.
  • Romance -- Start up that spark in your relationship or marriage by surprising your partner with a smooth, sexy back.
  • Muscle Definition -- Shaving the hair off your back shows your muscle definition in much greater detail. You'll simply look in better shape after using the Mangroomer.
  • Sweat -- Keep your back shaved clean and help keep your back dry with less sweat and less chance for body odor.
  • First Impressions -- As the saying goes, you only get one chance to make a first impression. Don't let back hair ruin the image you are trying to project.
  • Summer Essentials -- When your shirt is off this summer, no back hair is a big plus. Whether you're at the beach or a pool party, use the Mangroomer to avoid embarrassing, hairy-back jokes.
  • Avoid Embarrassing Public Treatment Options -- With the Mangroomer you can shave your back privately, easily, quickly, painlessly, and inexpensively by yourself, in the comfort of your own home.

Customer Reviews

The man groomer makes reaching my back so much easier, with zero in grown hairs.
Scott Dishner
It takes a little getting used to the manuevering in a mirror to get the angles right to cover your entire back but it is worth it.
R. Hageman
Second, It pulls on the hair only enough to cause pain but not to cut it or even rip it out.

The first time I used this product, I had mixed feelings. On the one hand, it is not easy to master and the first time out can be frustrating. On the other hand, it is a unique and helpful tool. If you are too modest to ask your significant other (or your kids - not!) to give that hairy back of yours a buzz cut, you should give this a try. There are several challenges, but all can be overcome with care and practice.

First, read the directions. The main guidance provided is to shave against the way the hair is growing - the "grain" of the hair. Most of your back hair grows down, so that means shaving "up" by extending the arm on the product and pulling it slowly up your back. However, that is not the only direction that your back hair grows. Anyone who has tried this product now knows the several directions that the long-ignored back hair can grow.

Next, don't get hung up on the red splotches that you will see (in the mirror) on your back when you first start using this. They go away real fast. Your back is just not used to coming in contact with something this sharp. And it is not dangerously sharp, just irritating sharp at first.

Further, once you get a feel for this, I recommend NOT looking into the mirror but use this like you would use a back-scrubber or loofah for washing your back -- visualize it on your back and use long "up" strokes. Doing it by "feel" will help keep the cutting edge flush against your skin to get a cleaner cut and avoid the red marks that you make when the cutting edge is slanted against your skin.

Using a hand mirror and the bathroom (or other fixed) mirror is the only way to get started. However, everything goes backwards in the 2-mirror arrangement.

This is the most impressive product design I have seen in a long time. The engineering is amazing -- kudos to the team that put this together.

It does a good job, although it does irritate my skin. I have a hard time getting the right angle. "Works best with a 3-way mirror" -- now that's funny. Most people do not have a 3 way mirror in their house, and I am not about to go shave my back at J.C. Penny haha.

I use a handheld mirror and my bathroom mirror. It works well. Even though it irritated a lot, it didn't cut, and as I learn how to do the angles better, I will have less irritation.

I am surprised that this doesn't mention shaving the neck. I used it on my neck and it did a good job. It also did a good job on the shoulders, upper arms, and underarms.

After placing the order I regretted it -- I thought it would be $40 down the drain, but I was happily wrong -- this product is EXCELLENT.

I ordered this product yesterday after reading everyone's reviews here. In my last relationship my girlfriend use to nair my back for me...but alas all good things come to an end. So when I saw this I thought it was a God send...and sure enough once I used it it was.

The product is light and made out of plastic but don't let that fool you. You will thank the makers if you have a lot of back hair, like me, cause it took a bit to do the whole thing. The blade is awesome and I even used it to shave my chest (also very hairy) and it did a great job!

A tip, try going back and forth with the blade instead of in just one direction (i.e. Kinda like a vacuum)

I am really pleased with this product and thank everyone here for helping me make my decision. Sometimes you order something and don't have any user opinions and it is a shot in the dark with some products!

I was very excited to order the mangroomer, it seemed like the perfect solution to a long time problem. I have hair on my back. The upper back is quite easy to get to, and I use a regular trimmer there. However, the middle back is very difficult to reach. The mangroomer looks like a great idea, and it is contructed well enough, though it seems a bit light, however, I found it to be well made. The clipper however, would not clip my hair. I tried it from all angles, slowly, flat and alligned to my back, against the grain, with the grain, sideways, but the trimmer was not very powerful. I used my regular trimmer over the same areas that I could reach and it took the hair right off.

Based on my experience, I would not recommend this product. Though I commend the innovative design, the clipper itself is too weak to cut hair. Also, it was a bit painful to my skin, perhaps that is because it was just grabbing at the hairs and not clipping them.

I will return it to Amazon and post an update as to their service. I expect a full refund, given that I tried the product and it does not work as Amazon advertised.

I commend the designers for their innovative idea, and only hope that they better design the clipper in the future. I really would like this to work realiably.

Thank you.

EDIT:

I returned my mangroomer and got a full refund from Amazon (minus shipping of course). I would recommend you try the product even if it didn't work for me, given that the most you will lose is shipping. I hope the designers come out with a new design because I will definitely try it then.
