Hey guys!! Today I’m going to bust some myths about SHAVING!! I was not at all shaving person. I used to use hair removal cream in the beginning but when I had an adverse effect of it darkening my skin, I shifted to waxing. Now to be very frank waxing was and is always a good option but it is painful no matter how many times you get it done, and if you are lazy like me then it’s always a pain to go to the saloon. So then I discovered shaving. I knew about it from a long time but was always apprehensive to use it because I also believed in the myths. I finally tried it and came to know whether the myths where real or not.
Myth 1: Shaving causes your hair to grow back thicker or darker
No it doesn’t, that is one of the biggest misconceptions. The texture of your hair has nothing to do with shaving the hair that grows back can never be thicker or darker.
Myth 2: Shaving causes your hair to grow back faster
I do believe that when we shave we are just removing the top layer of hair so the hair beneath your skin is still there. So it appears as though the hair grows faster but no it doesn’t. What happens when we wax is it removes the hair from the roots so it does take a bit long time for the hair to grow.
Myth 3: Shaving leaves skin dry and flaky
This depends on how you shave. Never use a razor on a bare skin, always apply a conditioning agent such as a body gel or shampoo, but shaving gel is always prescribed as it gives the best results. Do not forget to moisturise your skin after shaving as it tends remove the dead skin. A small tip is to always scrub your skin before shaving as it exfoliates and opens up your pores for closer shave and also avoids ingrown hair.
Pros of shaving
- Easy, you just need a razor and shaving gel
- Less time consuming
- Painless hair removal, unlike waxing
- Doesn’t darken your skin, like hair removal creams
- It even removes short hair which waxing doesn’t
Cons of shaving
- There are chances of ingrown hair so do not forget to scrub before shaving
So overall shaving is a very easy process to get rid of unwanted hair in your house at your convenience. You can even get the shaving gel according to your skin concerns [for sensitive skin or dry skin etc].To get a clean shave change your blades after every 5-10 shaves.
