Does Shaving Hair More Often Make It Stronger?

Many males believe that shaving the beard makes it grow stronger.

Hair Shaving and Hair Loss - Loss of hair is one of the biggest cosmetic problems faced by countless men and women across the globe. Once hair fall starts, both sexes look for easy and effective ways to counter the problem. There are many theories and so-called solutions for premature hair fall, and many people believe that shaving hair more often makes it stronger and can prevent hair loss before time. Reputed surgeons from top hair fixing clinics such as SHIFT Hair Transplant throw some light on this thought.

No impact on strength of hair

Shaving of hair has no impact whatsoever on its strength. Shaving only does away with the external part of the hair that is over the skin and does not have an impact on the living part that is below the dermis. The growth of hair is regulated by hair follicles located under the skin. The follicles that remain hidden from view actually determine the growth rate, colour and thickness of hair. Shaving does not affect the follicles in any way.

Having your hair ends cut makes it look healthier.

Reason for darker, thicker appearance

Many people say that they can see thicker and darker hair growth after shopping. Shaving only cuts hair at a blunt angle, and as you can view only the cross section of your hair it feels like your hair is growing darker and thicker this time. Once there is growing back of the hair, you can see thicker and coarser hair due to the bluntness of the re-grown hair. It can be more apparent, and thus look darker against your skin.
It is actually the size of your follicles and not how thick your body hair is that determine the thickness of your body hair. On the other hand, the darkness of your hair is decided by the melanocytes or the melanin-producing cells. Too much shaving should be avoided, in order to prevent premature fall and opting for hair transplant in Turkey.

Strength is an illusion.

Strength is an illusion

It so happens that after shaving, the hair base feels broader and stronger for a short time. However, it is of the same thickness and size as before. The strength is only an illusion, and women find that the shaved hair leads to re-growth of bristly and stubbly hair strands. Every man and woman have to realize that shaving has no relation to higher thickness or growth of hair. As the follicles are located deeper within the skin surface, they can only be affected by what goes on in your body.
