fact or fiction
Im thinking about shaving my arms. however, after my forearms the hair is very light. Ive heard that shaving light colored hair will result in darker colored hair. Is this true?
I dont post in this section much so if this question has been asked. sorry

its the same for most people , the forearm hair is darker and then gets lighter and finer to non exsistent as u go up the tricep. I was worried when i shaved my arms the first time, but u have to understand that once u shave then the hair will grow out, so shaving becomes a commitment, but the hair will not grow out thicker or darker, that is a myth!!! the reason hair APPEARS to grow darker and thicker after u shave it is because the hair follicle is thickes at the base near the skin, when u shave it you expose the thickest part of the hair!! if u wait for it to grow out again it will return to the normal thickness before u shaved it!! Take my word for it.

asking if hair grows back darker is a pointless thread? omg look at your post count... you must know since you have so many posts. My bad threadmaster. Ill make sure to not post anything you might think is pointless

it is a legitament thread, many people think if u shave hair it grows back thicker but that is not true, you could speed the growth process if you shave more and more over the years, but it wont be thicker or darker, like i mentioned before the only reason peple think it is thicker and darker is because they look at the hair after shaving it and they are looking at the surface base of the follicle which is the thickest part fo the hair follice, let it grow back and it will eb the same thickness as before. I shave my arms and the hair is the same thickness a sit was 4years ago, even the lighter hair on the tricep is still the same thickness
