Do you avoid shaving your body hair, because you're afraid it's going to grow back thicker? We all do. And every day, when I look in the mirror after I get out of the shower, I'm transported back to the sexy, bushy '70s.
Scientists at a hospital in Winston-Salem, North Carolina just proved we've all been believing a MYTH. Shaving or waxing your hair does NOT make it grow back thicker.
They say people believe the myth because shaving CAN make your hair SEEM thicker . . . because the little stubble that's left is darker or coarser than the hair before it's cut. But . . . shaving doesn't have any effect on how the hair grows back.
Their study also found shaving doesn't make your hair grow back FASTER . . . that's a myth too.
