If you can think back to the first time you picked up a razor to shave you may have felt a little apprehensive about it. On the one hand it was a device that could instantaneously solve your hair problem, but you were probably told that same tool could actually make matters worse. As the myth goes shave your hair and it will grow back thicker; however is that true?

Let me begin by putting your fears to rest because this myth is so false. Shaving will not cause your hair to grow back thicker. What you are seeing when your hair begins to grow again is usually what causes many to believe their hair is growing in fuller.

Hair that has been shaved looks like it is growing back thicker because the razor cuts the hair off only on the skin
