If I trim a few hairs near my breast would they grow thicker or more?

If I trim a few hairs near my breast would they grow thicker or more?

Or just pluck them: New hair growth after cutting may seem thicker & stiffer. That's because the "cut end" of the hair feels coarser. The previous hair ends that were older (and softer & thinner by being "worn down" by friction of day-to-day life) have been cut away. The part of the hair that is outside the hair follicle is not alive, so cutting hair does not change what is happening in the hair follicle in the skin. ...Read more

Would my monobrow (unibrow) grow back thicker if I cut it with a pair of scissors and not shave it?

Would my monobrow (unibrow) grow back thicker if I cut it with a pair of scissors and not shave it?

No: If one could make hair grow back thicker by shaving, i'd be shaving my head twice a day. You'd do well to have an aesthetically oriented plucking regime: never move the inner end of the eyebrow outside of a vertical line thru the inner corner of the eye. Don't thin the height too much. There's alot more to it. In my opinion, it's most often done wrong especially if waxed. Male brow should be lower. ...Read more

I have ingrown hair in my pubic area so i let them grow out, now their is few bumps but a lot of the hair are paired together to grow, should I rip them?

I have ingrown hair in my pubic area so i let them grow out, now their is few bumps but a lot of the hair are paired together to grow, should I rip them?

Ingrown hair: If the hair has grown out, it will not pierce through the follicular wall or the curly end will not stick back into the skin to cause a folliculitis. Let the hairs grow out and don't cut them or pluck them. If you do, they will stick in the side of the skin and cause inflammation, pimples, and cysts. If some are sticking back into the skin try to pull the end free. ...Read more

I can't let my chest hair grow for more than few days. Gets way too itchy, can't even wear a t-shirt. So is shaving my chest ok? Or do I need a doc?

I can't let my chest hair grow for more than few days. Gets way too itchy, can't even wear a t-shirt. So is shaving my chest ok? Or do I need a doc?

It's your choice: Nowadays, many men shave their chests -- in Hollywood, it seems to be the norm. It's perfectly safe -- do it after a good shower with soap. You're probably too young to have it removed -- there may be someone special in your future who likes what Nature gave you. ...Read more

Using a facial scrub I noticed that my beard was becoming more and more sparse so i quit using it. The hair growing back looks thin.Will it grow back?

May not: If substances in the scrub damaged hair follicles, full growth may not recur. Time will tell. A dermatologist often can tell the cause of hair loss and whether hair will grow back. ...Read more

If a 14 year old boy has chest hair and facial hair that you can see a little bit the day after shaving can he grow 3 more inches?

If a 14 year old boy has chest hair and facial hair that you can see a little bit the day after shaving can he grow 3 more inches?

Growth: this is not really related. Depending on several factors, genetics being the biggest determinant, growth can continue into the mid-teen years for males. A little bit of chest or facial hair won't determine if there is more growth potential. Talk with your pediatrician who can review your growth chart with you. ...Read more

Will shaving my head help my hair to grow thicker and better. I am 21yr old having damaged hair that would never grow ?

Will shaving my head help my hair to grow thicker and better.
I am 21yr old having damaged hair that would never grow
?

Likely not: Shaving your head will not help you grow your hair thicker or better. This is a common misconception that many people have, if there is something that is causing you to have bald spots or damaged hair. I would advise you to visit your doctor to have a general physical exam and see if there is anything that might be causing this condition. They can do a history, physical and any lab tests ...Read more

Hi, I have an underarm cyst possibly from an ingrown hair because I shaved recently. It's slightly bigger than a pimple and visibly contains pus, however I cannot see the ingrown hair. I read on some websites that cysts are harmless and will go away on it

Skin infections: Pus filled bumps on the skin are usually the symptom of a skin infection. When they become red, warm to touch and painful it is called cellulitis. Treatment of this includes oral antibiotics and occasionally drainage. See your doctor, because resistant infections are becoming more common and require special treatment. ...Read more

I have had small breasts forever. Is there a way I can make them larger without implants or a push up bra? I'm in my mid 30s and I've stopped growing.

I have had small breasts forever. Is there a way I can make them larger without implants or a push up bra? I'm in my mid 30s and I've stopped growing.

No: There's no safe way to increase breast size other than surgery or a push up bra. Any pills or potions that tell you they will increase your breast size are dangerous. Genetically, these are the size breasts you will likely have. Sometimes pregnancy can increase or decrease one's breast size (after pregnancy). Good luck and avoid scams! ...Read more

I have red ingrown hairs in my pubic area. They go away for a while then just come back. should I let the hair be and let it grow or remove them?

Don't remove...: Don't manipulate the area. In other words don't remove them or try to pick on them due to the risk if infection. If you see that the base of the hair gets inflamed use warm compresses over it for about 10-15 minutes few times a day, and if it gets worse and does not resolve have your PCP evaluate you. ...Read more

If i get a hair transplant from my beard to scalp, will my beard grow back? I ideally would like my beard to grow back

If i get a hair transplant from my beard to scalp, will my beard grow back? I ideally would like my beard to grow back

No beard to scalp : The beard and scalp have completely different types of hair, and beard hair is not suitable for the scalp. Also, scars are left in the hair donor site. Even if the beard was a suitable donor site, you would not want to have these scars on the face. Donor hair should be taken from the back of the head where the hair density is sufficient. I use the Neograft technique, which leaves no linear scars. ...Read more

Stay healthy: The best way to grow hair naturally is to stay healthy: regular exercises and eating a well-balanced diet to provide your body with the necessary nutrients for it support growth and repair. If u recently had a baby or went off the pills, hair loss can occur, but will get them back. Stimulate/massage your scalp regularly to keep a good blood supply. There isn't much else you can do. Good luck. ...Read more

If i shaved the coarse facial hair off would it grow back thicker and leave stubs in between shavings?

If i shaved the coarse facial hair off would it grow back thicker and leave stubs in between shavings?

It won't change: If you shave it, it will grow back. Initially it will be short and feel more stubble like but then will be as it was before. It may be worth considering shaving and then having a laser hair removal treatment series to permanently reduce the hair. ...Read more

You are okay...: Glad to see you do well in developing secondary sex characteristics as described since physical growth will naturally stop soon after reaching adulthood as predetermined by genetic codes - for men, roughly at 18. So, don't worry and enjoy your youth and teens to unfold your life in decades to come. ...Read more
