As women, we all have our own unique relationship with body hair - sometimes hair growth can be a frustrating and never-ending battle. So first let us give a tribute to this very essential part of our being - our body hair - that is as wild, fierce & glorious as we are.
From the bush to the pits to the brows to the 'stache, these artists prove that few things are more beautiful than natural beauty and a little bit of moxie.
Being in the business of hair removal, we realise that appreciating and understanding our hair and the science of hair growth is a great first step towards making more informed choices and be comfortable in our own (often hairy) skin.Firstly, let's talk about the hair growth cycle.
Each hair on our body goes through three phases: the anagen (growth) phase, the catagen (transition) phase, and the telogen (resting) phase. During the anagen phase, the hair is actively growing, while during the catagen phase, the hair stops growing and begins to transition to the telogen phase. Finally, during the telogen phase, the hair is at rest and ready to fall out, making way for a new hair strand to grow in its place.Now, let's bust some shaving myths.
One common myth is that shaving makes hair grow back thicker and darker. This is simply not true. When you shave, you're only cutting the hair at the surface of the skin, so it has no effect on the hair follicle or the hair growth cycle. The new hair that grows back after shaving will look and feel the same as before.
Another myth is that shaving causes hair to grow faster. Again, lies we say!! Shaving has no effect on the speed at which hair grows. The only thing that can affect hair growth speed is genetics and hormones.So, let’s get the ultimate shaving experience going?
One way is to choose the right razor. A razor with a roller, for example, can help to provide a smoother, more even shave by helping to lift hairs away from the skin. This can reduce the risk of irritation and razor burn, making for a more comfortable shaving experience.
Another tip is to exfoliate regularly. Exfoliation helps to remove dead skin cells and other debris from the skin's surface, which can help to prevent ingrown hairs and other shaving-related problems. By understanding the science of hair growth, women can make more informed choices about shaving and enjoy a smoother, more comfortable experience.
In conclusion, don’t shy away but shave away ladies - Science is on your side! By choosing the right razor and exfoliating regularly, one can achieve a smoother, more comfortable shave or you can go ala hair and still slay the day!
