Myth #1: Shaving makes your hair grow back thicker and faster
The truth is that once the hair has left the body and entered the outside world, it is actually dead. Therefore, it cannot possibly be affected by anything that happens to it as it has no contact with the brain to cause any changes.
So cutting the hair at the skin level during shaving or trimming the hair does not affect the color, texture or speed at which it grows.
Myth #2: Men inherit baldness from their mother’s side of the family
We don’t know where this old wives tale came from but don’t worry; your mom’s side of the family doesn’t predict the future of your manly mane of hair. Hair thickness, color and thinning are really all down to genetics and therefore can come from either parent’s side.
