shaving-myth

I heard that old overused myth again the other day about hair growing back thicker if you shave. A woman told her twelve year old daughter she should not shave her legs because the hairs will grow back as thick as her father’s beard.

It was the first time I had met this woman and she was in front of her whole family, so I didn’t correct her (I would have done a few years ago when I was a bigger nonconformist). But if a person, male or female, shaves any part of their body; legs, face, anywhere; the only thing that will happen is that the new hairs will grow back with a blunt end instead of a fine tapered end.

Shaving never causes hairs to grow back thicker for as long as you live. Here’s a few more incorrect myths including that one.

Here’s a shaving fact that isn’t a myth: A money saving tip (or should that be money shaving tip?) would be to ditch your overpriced shaving foam or shaving cream. Use hair conditioner instead – all it has to do is soften the hair and skin, and hair conditioner does that perfectly well, at a fraction of the price.
