Will shaving make hair grow back faster?Updated a year ago

There's a common belief that shaving hair can change its thickness, color, or rate of growth. But, according to several credible sources (including Lawrence E. Gibson, M.D), this is simply not true. 

When you shave your facial or body hair, 
it gives the hair a blunt tip that may feel rough or stubbly for a while as it grows out. During this phase, you may notice the hair more and it may seem darker or thicker, but that's just an optical illusion. In reality, shaving doesn't affect the hair's thickness, color, or rate of growth. 

So don't worry, keep shaving, and enjoy your smooth skin!
