Does shaving hair cause coarse hair?


Shaving causes hair to grow back coarser, darker and faster.


How about another hairy myth that just doesn't make any sense. The most obvious answer is the individual is just noticing the rapid appearance of hair regrowth on their own body.

Human Hair

The hair above the skin is actually dead and the hair living below the skin is alive. Since shaving actually removes the dead portion of hair and not the living portion lying below the skin’s surface, it is not likely to affect the rate or type of growth because its dead hair. Just like the hair on your head is dead hair (all of it) and the hair below the skin's surface on the scalp is alive. This is strongly supported through scientific evidence.

Shaved hair lacks the fine taper that is seen at the ends of unshaven hair which gives it the impression of being coarse. Not to mention the new hair growth has not yet been lightened by the sun or by other chemical exposure, resulting in an appearance that seems darker and coarser. Remember, shaven hair does not have the fine tapered end. (See the unshaven hair in the pic that has the tapered end.) It has also been found that shaving does not affect the thickness or rate of hair regrowth.
