Hi I'm Amelia and I'm here to talk to you about if shaving causes your hair to grow back thicker. That is a myth, it does not. You can shave your arms, your head, your legs, your chest, anything and you will find that hair will not automatically start sprouting. One way to prove it is try shaving the back of your hand and you know that you really don't have much hair back there if any, so if hair just automatically starts sprouting, then I'm wrong. But the fact is that it's a myth. Hair growth and placement all depends on thickness, thickness length and color and placement all depend on genetics and your health and your hormones. So if your hormone levels are doing this, then your hair growth is going to be doing the same thing, you'll start noticing something wacky going on. But you'll notice as women age, we start to get hair in weird places and losing it in others. So it's all really, hormones are the biggest factor so if all the sudden you started changing your birth control or your, you've just had a baby, then you're going to notice that your hair is definitely affected by that. So no, shaving does not cause your hair to grow back thicker.
