why does my hair grow so fast after shaving

You asked: Whenever I shave my leg hair, it grows back thicker, darker and worst of all quickly! I want a smooth shave that lasts for at least three days, but it just doesn t work. What can I do to get a long-lasting smooth shave? GL answered: Welcome to the wonderful world of shaving. It can be a bit hairy at times (get it? ), but that s why we re here to help you. Unfortunately, what you re describing is a perfectly normal side effect of shaving. Luckily, there are other ways to remove unwanted hair. To better increase the results of shaving, make sure you re using a moisturizing shaving cream or gel.


Soap can leave your skin dry and more prone to cuts. You should also try shaving against the grain (in the opposite direction of the way your hair is growing) to get a closer, cleaner cut (though, if you notice redness or razor burn, you should actually do the opposite). Of course, you should always use a fresh blade. The result will be a smoother shave that lasts a little longer. On average, shaving usually lasts between three and five days.


Though, depending on the color and thickness of your hair, it might not last as long. You could also try a depilatory, which is a cream, such as Nair, used for removing hair. Try a small patch of hair before applying the cream to your whole leg to make sure you re not allergic. Typically, you keep the cream on for about five minutes before washing it off with water. Follow the directions on the box closely and don t be afraid to ask your mom or big sis for help. Waxing is another method to remove hair.


Unlike shaving and depilatories, this is probably the most painful technique and best left to professionals. Hot wax is applied to your leg, a white piece of paper is applied to the wax and then ripped off really fast like a Band-Aid. If you re brave, you can try an at-home waxing kit, but you should definitely ask for assistance. Best of luck, hon!
I dont think it grows any faster after shaving or not, its just more noticable after shaving He's right. it's a common misconception that shaving makes hair grow back faster.


It grows back neither faster nor 'thicker'. However, the ends of your hairs that have been bleached by exposure and age are removed so when your hair grow back it will be more visible (until those ends too are bleached) This exactly, combined with the fact that hairs taper to a point, and that shaving cuts off the thinner end of it - leaving the thicker base to grow through until it falls out, as it would normally do. Makes the hair look darker and thicker when it grows out, for a little while at least.
