HAIR GROWTH & COARSE HAIR
When puberty hits so does the growth of body hairs. It seems to show up everywhere and the growth isn’t slow. It usually hits you fast before you even know how to use a razor. It’s too much to manage at a young age and especially when you get older and your life becomes a lot busier. Besides setting time aside during the week to get that not-so-perfect shave you might end up with razor bumps, ingrown hairs, itchy skin, and stubble a day later.
One of the biggest myths about shaving is that it will grow back thicker and faster. This isn’t exactly true though… Regrowth of hairs just appear different from existing hairs. Think of it like this, the hair on your head is not as coarse or even as dark as pubic hairs. The reason for this is newly grown hair no matter what will appear darker, thicker and coarser but as it grows longer it will soften out and look lighter. Obviously this is a problem for those that don’t want their leg hair to grow out as long as the hair on their head. Body hairs also grow at a much quicker rate than the hair on your head. But interesting enough it doesn’t grow much faster it just seems that way because we are constantly shaving. According to express.co “Leg hair begins to grow again on average after around 24 to 72 hours, whereas armpit hair starts to grow much sooner and grows up to 0.27mm a day”.
