Does Shaving Make the Hair Thicker and Darker?


Have you ever noticed that after a clean shave, once your hair begins to grow back, it feels different? The truth is that shaving does not cause the hair to grow back thicker or darker. It simply puts all of the hairs in the same growth cycle, causing them to grow at the same rate, which gives the illusion of a thicker beard. Shaving also blunts the ends of the hair, which can appear lighter due to sun exposure. With the less pigmented ends gone, your hair may appear darker when it grows back in.

I'm a freelance writer, makeup artist and brow expert with nearly ten years of professional experience in the beauty industry. Eating healthy, trying new beauty products and writing personal essays are a few of my favorite things. I can usually be found roaming the magazine aisles of bookstores or sitting at the café compulsively shopping online for shoes, books, clothes, and makeup. If I went to the gym as often as I talked about wanting to start exercising, I would have a 12-pack by now. I believe that having a good skincare regimen and expertly groomed eyebrows are two cornerstones to being naturally beautiful.
