Shave the myth away!

Myth: Shaving hair makes it grow back thicker

Truth: When you shave hair, it does not grow back thicker. Shaving has no effect on how dark your hair is, or even how quickly it grows. Whether you use a straight razor or an electric shaver, it does not matter. It is genetics and hormones that influence hair color, location, thickness and growth.

    I didn’t know about it. I have seen many people shaving their head in hope that it’ll help growing more hair.

    But everyday ordinary shaving really makes hair grow hard and harder. I know it’s true:)

    :-)Nishant – it still has to do with genetics and hormones 😀 apparently. For some people, no matter how regularly they shave, the hair grows scantily 🙂 – so there must be truth in the statement.
