Hair isn’t always where you want it to be, but before we even get the chance to remove it, we’re constantly faced with the dreaded thought of it just growing back thicker, bushier and even grosser than before. But that’s not actually the case.
You may have thought that when you first started shaving your face, that stubble grew back a lot thicker than ever before and that you had more hair than you thought. You put the shaving and thicker hair together, observe it happening to other people and then instantly a correlation is made. But have you ever stopped and thought about it differently? The time that you began shaving probably overlaps with the time that your body began its hormonal changes such that your face grew more hair than ever before. It’s not because you started to remove hair from your body.
Shaving off your hair may have temporarily made it seem like it was thicker only because hair shafts are generally tapered. When you shave it off, it gets rid of the tapered tip and ends up becoming blunt. Which makes it look thicker and darker than before you cut it. Your hair will definitely feel coarser, which will contribute to the more hair mentality. But this cutting part does nothing scientifically to the growth process of your hair. The only way you can really change the way that your hair grows is if you wax off your hair and the hair follicles get taken away from your skin. Then you won’t be growing more hair, but actually less of it. You can’t physically make your body grow more hair.
