As a woman, you've probably heard some pretty wild shaving myths over the years. From razor burn being a rite of passage to the idea that shaving makes hair grow back thicker and darker, it can be hard to separate fact from fiction. But fear not, ladies! We're here to debunk some of the most common shaving myths and set the record straight.Myth #1: Razor burn is just a part of the shaving process.
Fact: Razor burn is not inevitable! It's caused by irritation and inflammation, which can be prevented by using the right razor, shaving with the grain, and using a soothing post-shave product.Myth #2: Shaving makes hair grow back thicker and darker.
Fact: This one is as fake as a unicorn riding a rainbow. Shaving has no effect on the thickness or darkness of hair. When hair grows back after shaving, it may feel coarser because the tip is blunt, but it's not actually thicker or darker.Myth #3: Men’s and women’s razors are the same.
Fact: While the first set of razors made for women were very much pinkified versions of the same male razor, it has come a long way now. There is a lot of technology and research that goes into making Women’s Razors – thickness and density of hair, need for longer strokes etc. For example, Bombae has a razor with a roller to enable faster, smoother and easier shaves!Myth #4: You need to shave every day to keep your legs smooth.
Fact: Not true! How often you shave is entirely up to you. You can go a few days or even a week between shaves if you prefer. It's all about what makes you feel comfortable and confident.
Myth #5: You can't shave certain body parts.
Fact: There's no rulebook when it comes to shaving! You can shave whatever body parts you feel comfortable shaving. Whether it's your legs, underarms, or even your face, it's your body and your choice.
In conclusion, don't believe everything you hear about shaving. Many of these myths are just that - myths. By separating fact from fiction, you can make informed choices about your shaving routine and find what works best for you. So, let's ditch the myths, embrace our inner badass, and shave & slay like the fierce bunch we are!
