NO! Let's clarify this issue once and for all. Hair is always thicker at its root than at its ends. When you use a razor, the hair is cut almost at its base, where it is thicker. So when the hair grows back, it grows from that base and gives the impression of being thicker.
You can test it out yourself and remove hairs with tweezers, you’ll see that it grows back as before, so shaving doesn’t change anything.
Tip: For those who only shave, you need to understand that hair will always be thick while it is growing back. In addition, with this type of removal, hair grows much faster than when waxing. There are other options, such as depilatory creams, which dissolve the hairs from just below the skin’s surface. Your hair won’t grow back as fast as it does when shaving, or as slow as traditional waxing / honey.
If you do not like waxing or you’re too lazy to make an appointment, keep in mind that there are tons of hair removal machines on the market, some electric. They are very practical, fast, and leave no traces of wax on your skin. Don’t forget that laser hair removal is always an option, which removes hair forever after just a few sessions.
Yes! It is true that waxing hair for years makes it increasingly more fragile, and therefore thinner and weaker. But not only that, with age, hormones make hair weaker and thinner, and in some areas hair may even stop growing.
Tip: This process affects all body hair. Keep that in mind when waxing your eyebrows – don’t overuse waxing to get the perfect look. Your eyebrows could lose their thickness long term.
Yes. The more you cut your cuticles, the more they will grow and become more noticeable. This may make it seem like you always have extra cuticle, growing constantly. It is also true that the less we cut it, the less it grows. The cuticle is a way of protecting our nails. If our bodies notice the lack of such protection, they quickly replace it. If our cuticles are intact, our bodies do not need to produce as much skin. Our cuticles grow up to a point and stop. Because of that, it is so important to moisturize and care for them. Obviously some cuticles grow more than others, depending on the person, just like hair.
Tip: If you do not have time for a manicure or are between manicures, it is important to moisturize your cuticles often. You can either use specific products for nails and cuticles or any other hand moisturizer. If you’re more au natural like us, apply a few drops of plant oil (like macadamia or argan) to your cuticles, especially in winter. It prevents dry and neglected cuticles.
It depends on the ingredients in the shampoo you use. Most shampoos and treatments contain silicone. Over the months, our hair loses its shine and volume. Try a silicon-free shampoo and you will see that your hair never "gets used to it" and will always be shiny.
