Hair removal Body hair grows in all kinds of places where people do not want hair to grow. Shaving does not cause hair to thicken or grow back thicker. That is an old wives tale. Shaving is an effective hair removal method however, it is temporary and will lead to stubble that grows back and sometimes people with sensitive skin will have irritation from shaving. Shaving should be done in the direction of hair growth with a fresh razor and a good shave gel or cream. If hairs a few and far between, you can pluck them out with a tweezer. These will grow in soft, not stubbly and won't grow in for several weeks, like waxing. If you'd like to go 4 to 6 weeks without hair growing back, wax it off.however A new hair will always come in, even if from a different, nearby follicle. Electrolysis is an option, but is expensive and painful and NOT permanent, no matter what they tell you. Laser hair removal is supposed to be permanent
