Question: Does shaving make hair grow back faster?
No doubt you have probably heard the myth that shaving makes hair grow back faster. Fortunately, this is not true. When you shave your hair it creates a blunt end, which may make it feel thicker or as if it is growing faster. In reality, shaving helps to remove the dead part of the hair, but not the living part, which is located below the skin, so the rate of growth is never changed by shaving.
