Is it safe to wax my legs and my thighs? will the hair stop growing for a while than shaving? what waxing do you recommend?

Yes

Extremity-lower-one_side
It's safe to wax in general. Some people do get skin irritation from it though so be aware if you tend to have sensitive skin. The hair won't stop growing but your skin will remain smoother longer as it will take longer for the hair to grow back. As for which type to recommend- that I really couldn't say-sorry !

What caused hair to stop growing on my face in one spot?

Alopecia Areata

Head-face
Alopecia areata is an acquired skin disease that can affect all hair-bearing skin and is characterized by localized areas of non-scarring hair loss. Alopecia areata, as a rule, is rarely associated with any other external or internal medical problems. Most often these bald areas regrow their hair spontaneously.

What is best treatment for dandruff? does it cause hair loss ? and how to make my hair thick and longer coz it seems stop growing?

Dandruff shampoo

Baldness
Regular washes with dandruff shampoo are the best way to prevent dandruff. You may need to shower daily or even twice a day. In order to make your hair thick, eat well (fruit, vegetables, and protein) and take a multivitamin. If that doesn't work, you might try taking folic acid or biotin which are essential ingredients for hair growth. Thyroid or other medical problems may also thin hair.

Shouldn't...

Vp_shunt
A VP shunt shouldn't stop hair from growing. Only probably at the place where it's inserted in the scalp.

can deprovera stop your hair from growing?

No

Follicle
Your individual hairs grow at different times (dyssynchronous growth). However, pregnancy or being on depo can cause the hair follicles to synchronize their growth. Old hairs fall out to be replaced by new ones.

When does a young man stop growing body hair?

Older age

Alopecia
All existing hairs continue to grow throughout life as long as they exist. In older age (and pattern baldness) hairs start to fall out and the follicle atrophies. When that happens, the hair at that point disappears.

Dr. David B. Fink answered:

Will waxing make your hair stop growing back?

No, it won't

Skin
Waxing rips the hair from the skin (hair follicles) but the hair will grow back. Laser treatment can usually remove hair permanently.
