Does Shaving Make Hair Grow Faster?
The idea that shaving makes your hair grow faster is a popular one, but is nonetheless not factually correct.
There are many things that can an increase in body hair growth, including hormones, pregnancy, puberty, medication or an underlying medical condition; but shaving in itself will not cause the hair to grow faster, thicker or darker.
However, it is true that shaved hair can soon feel to be coming back. The reason is that when the hair is shaved, the hair is literally chopped off leaving a blunt tip. When this regrows, it can feel coarse, prickly or stubbly. This can be noticeable within as little as 24 hours of shaving, which is why it feels like a never ending battle.
Other hair removal methods tend to last longer and leave hair regrowth feeling softer. For example, when you wax your hair or use a depilatory, the hair regrowth doesn’t have that blunt end and so it feels softer.
Laser Hair Removal
One of the most effective ways of hair removal is via laser hair removal treatment.
The key difference here is that the laser light energy actually destroys the hair follicle, helping to reduce hair regrowth altogether. The hair that does regrow tends to be thinner, sparser and softer. After treatment, patients can rarely banish the razor altogether. However, the frequency with which any maintenance is required is massively reduced as there is so much less hair growth and it is far softer and less noticeable.
