Cutting hair makes hair grow, this is a completely wrong belief. In the research done in 1928, it has been proved that cutting hair does not make hair grow faster. Even after shaving, hair grows at its own pace. There is no change in the thickness, color, and speed of growth of hair by shaving.

When the hair on the head is shaved, initially the hair growth may look different, but then gradually the hair becomes the same as before. Hair cutting does not make the hair thick and neither does it grow.

When body hair is shaved, it can take about 1 month for these hairs to reach full length. This happens because the hair on the body is much shorter than the hair on the head. At the same time, the growth of hair on the head passes through four phases - anagen, catagen, telogen, and exogen. Therefore, it may take up to 1 year for the hair on the head to fully grow. Hair begins in the hair follicle. Hair follicles are located under the skin.

Hair roots are made of protein. As soon as the hair starts forming from the roots. They pass through the sebaceous glands along with the follicles. Sebum i.e. oil produced in the glands helps in making the hair long and shiny. When the hair comes out from the surface of the skin, it becomes dead. In such a situation, when a person shaves unwanted hair, he is cutting dead hair. That's why there is no pain in them.

Shaving removes only the upper hair. Shaving does not remove the hair under the skin. That's why when these hairs are long, there is not much change in their color or texture, but there is a gradual growth of the hair under the skin.
