WILL MY CHEST HAIR GROW BACK THICKER IF I SHAVE IT?
Contrary to popular opinion, no type of body hair grows back thicker after you shave it! What actually happens is that the hair grows back with a blunt end, rather than tapered which is how it naturally grows. This can give the appearance that the hair is thicker and darker, when actually it isn’t at all!
IS IT BAD TO SHAVE YOUR CHEST?
Of course it isn’t “bad” to shave your chest - it’s all a case of personal preference and style! Whilst there may be some discomfort when the hair grows back (or if done improperly and it causes razor burn), shaving your chest hair will do you no harm. Following our guide above will help to minimise any irritation whilst shaving and when it grows back.
HOW OFTEN SHOULD I SHAVE MY CHEST?
As with whether to shave your chest hair at all, that’s completely up to you! You might shave your chest hair once, and then decide you don’t like it. You might also decide that this is something you’d like to maintain, and therefore wonder how often to do it. Regrowth is completely dependent on the individual, meaning there is no one correct answer. The best thing is to not allow too much regrowth if you intend to shave it again, but leave a day or two between shaves so that your skin can recover.
