3 Common Shaving Myths Debunked

3 Common Shaving Myths Debunked

Find out the truth behind 3 shaving myths that you’ve always thought were true.


Myth 1: Shaving Makes Your Hair Grow Back Thicker, Darker and Faster

Fact: Hair actually grows the same before and after a shave — one-third to half of a millimeter per day, on average.

The optical illusion has to do with the dimensions of an intact hair. Those that grow out untouched have tapered ends and thicker bases, just as a tree branch does. When you shave those hairs down to size, only the thickest, most aggressive-looking portion is left behind.

Myth 2: Pressing Harder on Your Skin While Shaving Gives a Closer Shave

Fact: Nope. It’s actually probably causing more nicks and cuts. Keep the blades flat against, but not pressing into your skin, so the razor can work effectively. Use a light touch to get a close shave.

Tip: Let a specially designed razor like the Venus Embracedo the work for you.

Myth 3: Shaving over the Same Area Repeatedly Will Result in a Closer Shave

Fact: Shaving one spot over and over will likely cause irritation — fast. If you’re having trouble with rough spots or stubble, try changing out your blade.

I used to shave my legs and I would have strawberry looking legs. I think it's because my hair are coarse. My leg would feel smooth to touch but looks dirty. Epilating my legs sort of solve this problem. Still not getting a flawless look
