If I shave does my facial hair grow back thicker and faster?

If I shave does my facial hair grow back thicker and faster?

No: Hair is dead. It does not know if you are cutting it or not. Neither does your body. It is an old wives tale that started because when young boys became men and started shaving, their hair got thicker due to testosterone increases, not shaving. Short hair can feel stiffer but that is a mechanical issue, it just feels stiffer, it is not thicker. ...Read more

Can you tell me if i trim my facial hair, will it grow back thicker?

Myth: No — shaving hair doesn't change its thickness, color or rate of growth. Shaving facial or body hair gives the hair a blunt tip. The tip might feel coarse or "stubbly" at first but will thin out as it grows. During this phase, the hair might be more noticeable and perhaps appear darker or thicker — but it's not. Another option to shaving is laser hair removal if you want to remove the hair. ...Read more

Will my facial hair grow back after radiation therapy?

Will my facial hair grow back after radiation therapy?

Possibly: Assuming you lost the hair from treatment for a cancer in the oral cavity or pharynx, it would depend on the technique. These days most radiation doctors use imrt for head and neck cancers. This distributes the radiation widely and therefore less dose directly to the skin versus older methods. Often in this case the hair will grow back but sometimes more sparsely. ...Read more

I have fair short facial hair, will it grow thicker and longer?

Beard characteristics do tend to run in families, however, so take a look at your father and your grandfathers -- if they can grow a long, thick beard, you will probably be able to as well. ...Read more

How can men make their facial hair grow longer and faster? Any natural medicines that can be used?

Vitamins: I don't believe there is much you can do to make facial hair grow faster or longer. How much and how fast your facial hair grows is a genetic trade and you can't change it. Obviously, however, if you are having a problem in this area, you may need to have your doctor run some tests, such as thyroid studies or even hormonal studies, such as testosterone levels, etc. ...Read more
