It is commonly believed that shaving hair will make it grow back thicker or faster. Others believe that shaving your hair will have a negative effect on the rate of growth. Both of these beliefs are actually not true.
Shaving is just another form of cutting hair, both having no affect on your hair follicle. Your hair follicle is what is responsible for the rate of growth of your hairs. Because shaving and cutting don’t do anything to change or harm your hair follicle, hair growth remains the same. Very short hair that is just coming out of the hair follicle can appear to be thicker, which may be where this rumor stems from. This is because of the angle that hair is shaved at, leaving a long-angled cut at the end of each hair. It is only an illusion however and the hair is not actually any thicker than it was before being shaved.
If you have experienced hair loss and thought it was due to shaving, chances are that it is being caused by something else entirely. It is best to see your doctor as soon as possible to best diagnose the cause of hair loss. If you would like to learn about restoration options available, you should contact Bosley Medical.
