Would removing hair with a pumice stone leave black spots like shaving? Have light complexion and dark hair

Would removing hair with a pumice stone leave black spots like shaving? Have light complexion and dark hair

Pumice stone: The pumice stone may or may not basically grind the hair off the surface of the skin but it would take a lot of friction which will primarily affect the skin surface and not the hair. All that rubbing can cause a pretty significant rash and erosions of the surface. That can result in infection and later when it heals in darkening or blotchiness of the skin. Definitely not recommended. ...Read more

Hi m south indian.Why doesn't shaving my head restore my grey hairs with black ones?The black hair cell died?

Gray Hair: Hair turns gray because of age and genetics, in that genes regulate the exhaustion of the pigmentary potential of each individual hair follicle. This occurs at different rates in different hair follicles. For some people it occurs rapidly, while in others it occurs slowly over several decades. Once the pigment is depleted, the hair will be gray or white and will never have pigment again. ...Read more
