Shaving Myth?


“Shaving your hair makes it thicker.”


Ruling:
False. Old wives’ tale.

Analysis:
Regrown hair is not thicker, coarser, or darker, it just appears so because it is no longer tapered. Consider, if shaving caused all those things, wouldn’t hair continue to grow thicker until individual sprouting follicles looked like hedgehog-like keratin spikes?
