Does Shaving Make Your Hair Grow Back Thicker?

In our daily lives, we sometimes feel very confident in some advice. For example, each person needs to sleep 8 hours a day, can eat food on the floor if picked up in time, chewing gum will stick to the gut when swallowed … Today, let us decode the advice ” legend “from mothers:” Dear daughter, do not try to shave her legs will grow thicker and darker tomorrow “.

It is indeed difficult to find the starting point of the story. Many mothers recommend their children that way. And when asked why they know this secret, the answer is that it also comes from mothers. So from generation to generation, every mother believes that when shaving her legs, she will grow thicker and darker. To verify this, many scientists have done a lot of experiment. And they all realized that the growth of hair and hair wasn’t affected after shaving or any other kind of bleach.

Does Shaving Make Your Hair Grow Back Thicker?

“Women wax their legs very often. If the legs grow thicker each time, soon they will turn into gorillas, ”Amy McMichael, a dermatologist said . “Moreover, if we shave the hair to make it grow thicker, we will not have to worry about hair loss anymore.”

As early as 1928, there was a clinical trial showing that shaving didn’t affect their growth. The study, published in the British Medical Journal, says that “shaving off the hair, beard or dead hair does not affect the part of the body that lives below the surface of the skin.”

At this point, you may not believe and insist: “Oh, but I see my mother is right, they have regained black and thicker.” That is indeed the case, but before explaining this, I will tell a different story.

Eat a lot of ice cream, drown much? It is a startling statistic made in many places. When looking at the correlation graph of ice cream consumption and number of drowning people, it’s easy to realize that it is creating a positive trend. As the amount of ice cream consumed increased, the number of people drowned also increased, similarly in the opposite direction.

Will you find correlation here? Not at all, the problem is that everyone eats a lot of ice cream and goes swimming more when it’s hot. Accidentally temperature is a deciding factor that is not in the graph.

Going back to the story of clumps of legs, its thicker and darker growth comes from an element that is not present: the hormone.

Most girls start waxing at puberty. Similarly, the boys began to shave. And then mothers appear with the “legendary” advice. After many shaving and waxing, the children realized that they were indeed growing thicker and darker. However, the reason behind this phenomenon is hormonal fluctuations during puberty. When hormones increase, they affect the thickness of the hair and many other factors.

Besides, part of the reason you are deceived is the feeling. The hairs are made up of horny proteins that protrude from the body and they taper at each end. When you shave them, you impact and cut hairs in the middle. It will form a sharp and rough surface when touched. And your feeling after the first few days is that they have grown bigger and thicker. You have been deceived.

Then, before you can verify this, there are opposite statements. Waxing vendors say their products will cause obnoxious hairs to grow back thinner and slower. If you believe this, your feelings are once again fooled.

“Plucking and waxing with cream or wax products causes the hair follicles to be removed. This will take them a while to regenerate. They will grow out with a slenderer head. However, the thickness and color remain the same, ”Michael Vagg said , a doctor on The Conversation.

“However, there has been evidence that repeated waxing can permanently damage some hair follicles and prevent them from regrow. This only happened after a process lasting several years, ”Paul Willis, a science reporter explained in Catalyst Magazine.

“Like many other functions of the body, the appearance of hair, beard and hair reflects your overall health and genetic makeup. Unless you do something that affects the skin epidermis or interferes with hormones, this process is turned upside down. You can’t make them grow faster and thicker with a razor, ”said Michael Vagg.

Conclusion

In short, it can be claimed that shaving or waxing does not actually affect their development. Won’t hair clusters, hair, or beards grow thicker and darker after each shave? Maybe this only happens during puberty and its cause comes from hormones. If you are a mother, you should understand this when talking to your children. If you want to get rid of those disgusting hairs yourself, basically pick up the razor and there’s nothing to be afraid of anymore.

Hello, my name is Amy and I quite clearly have a problem with leopard print clothing right now.

Following on from Friday’s post, there seems to be a little theme going on with my wardrobe at present and I can’t stop picking up printed pieces. This coat was actually a gift for Christmas after spotting it go on sale at a crazy price a few days prior. I’d been toying with the idea of getting one for a while and when I spotted this one I couldn’t resist – it’s swing coat shape is my absolute favourite cut. It’s not as warm as it looks (these photographs were taken when it was -1 outside with ice everywhere so things were a little chilly…) but needless to say it’ll take me happily into Spring. I thought it was going to be a tricky one to style, however, I love how it’s just slotted nicely into my existing wardrobe like it was meant to be.

I was kindly sent these Black Hi-Top Converse from the lovely people over at Cloggs a few weeks ago, and there’s been attached to my feet pretty much every day since. When I was 13/14 I was a little emo kid (P!ATD fan girl, forever) with skinny jeans, band tees and Converse being my uniform, so I’m totally smitten to have my hands on another pair. I’d forgotten just how comfy they are. I love wearing them with this pair of cropped kick flare jeans I picked up in Topshop sale on Christmas Eve. I’ve somehow managed to lose weight over Christmas so these fit me perfectly and nip me in in all of the right place and I’m already eyeing up the other colours. They seem to be in sale in some stores so keep an eye out! (And if you spot any blue ones, let me know)

Of course, I couldn’t help but go back to my emo roots and reach for my nearest motif tee, this A initial t-shirt was my first choice. I never thought a t-shirt could be flattering but I was so wrong, who knew!? This whole outfit in general takes me back to my gig days which hold some of the best memories (apart from the 12 hours spent queuing in the cold…). So the temptation to whack out the eyeliner is very real whenever I’m wearing it..! Of course it wouldn’t be an outfit of mine without a hat and I have a new one this time. Move over fedoras, I’m all about the berets at the moment. Admittedly it often takes me about 10 attempts just to get the hat on right, but you know, you just gotta do these things, right?

I’m super happy to be back photographing my outfits again, they’re one of my favourite posts to do but weather and anxiety haven’t been on my side the past few months or so making it really difficult for me to just leave the house some days. However, I have many more planned so hopefully they’ll be up very very soon!

So does anyone else have that piece of clothing that brings back lots of memories?

THE BEST PLACES FOR CAKE IN NEWCASTLE

PetLamb5

If there’s one thing I probably couldn’t live without, it’s cake. I absolutely love meeting up with my favourites and catching up over cake or taking a cake break whilst in town taking outfit photographs. I’ve lived in this city for my whole life now and it’s always been a little poor in the cake department, but in the past few years many places have opened much to my taste buds delight. So when I was contacted by the lovely people over at Travelodge challenging me to name where I’d recommend to anyone visiting Newcastle, I thought it would be fun to tell you about my favourite places for cake. One which is more of a sit-down cute cafe and the other a small shop which have the best selection of cupcakes to go – both which are independent and both which are incredible!

GB Cupcakery 1

GB Cupcakery 5

The GB Cupcakery

Easily my favourite place to visit for cupcakes and the biggest slices of cake you can imagine is The Great British Cupcakery. It’s located a stones throw away from the iconic Newcastle Quayside, so is a must to anyone visiting the city (and anyone local who just hasn’t been). Often quite busy, you sometimes do have to wait a few minutes or so for a table to become free but it’s well worth the wait as they have a huge selection of cupcakes, cakes and scones available. Oh and the biggest milkshakes known to man, like, seriously. I’ve rather shamefully worked my way through half of their menu (not. even. sorry.) and my favourite so far have to be the Red Velvet cupcakes, Salted Caramel and Chocolate cake and Carrot Cake cupcakes – they’re all equally wonderful!

PetLamb2

PetLamb4

Pet Lamb Patisserie

If you’re looking to pick up a cupcake/brownie whilst you’re exploring the city centre then The Pet Lamb Patisserie located in the Grainger Market is a great shout. Unlike The GB Cupcakery this is a small store without seats, but their brownies especially are not to be missed. I’m talking they have Nutella, Peanut Butter, Salted Caramel and even Raspberry variations here, all which are as amazing as they sound. Everything is baked behind the counter too, meaning you’re met by the most incredible sweet smell when you walk in too, which is a total bonus. Alternatively if you’re looking to try these goodies whilst resting your feet, there’s a cat cafe in Newcastle City Centre called Mog On The Tyne (yes, you get to spend an hour cuddling little kittens) where you can enjoy some cupcakes/brownies from Pet Lamb Patisserie there too!

So where are your favourite places to eat cake? I’d love to hear your recommendations – whether you’re local to Newcastle or not!

Outfit Details: Leopard Print Scarf – c/o Laura Ashley, Jumper – Primark, Skirt – New Look, Hat – c/o Laura Ashley, Bag – Zara

As the darker nights are really starting to cut in, it’s that time of year where copious amounts of blankets scarves become a must have (I mean, it is Christmas next month after all..!). From silk scarves, to neckerchiefs, wooly scarves to fur snoods – I have a bit of thing for them and how they add that extra something something to an outfit. I’ve been incredibly lucky in the last few weeks to acquire quite a selection, all which I’ve really been enjoying styling up. I love their versatility and how many variations they come in, so when I spotted this leopard print wooly number (we all know that classic print is my fave) I had to snap it up.

I wear a lot of leopard print in my wardrobe, and although it’s often seen as being quite daunting, it’s really one of the easiest prints to incorporate into your outfit in my opinion. Whether you like to wear a more neutral colour palette, it always really complements autumnal shades such as camels, navys and burgundys (and reds, dusty pinks, bottle greens, the list goes on). Choosing to let this scarf be the main focal point, I decided to pair it with a fail-safe high neck black jumper and suede skirt combination which are both real outfit staples. And it goes without saying that this Berry coloured Fedora was the perfect addition to finish this outfit off. What can I say? This girl gotta have her hat #fivefingerforeheadproblems.

Ps – Fun fact, I shot these photographs on Halloween… it turns out the street I was shooting on was called All Hallows Lane. Spooky or what?!

NEW IN: JEWELLERY & WATCHES FOR AW 2015

New In Jewellery 1

New In Jewellery 4

I’ll happily admit to anyone, that I’m a bit rubbish when it comes to wearing jewellery and watches. Don’t get me wrong, I love seeing other people wear them – but I tend to forget to wear them myself most days. When I cleared out my room earlier in the room, I had a massive jewellery sort out (turns out I still owned many necklaces from my emo/scene days…) and cut my collection down to very few pieces. Since then, I’ve been trying to make an effort to grow my stash and pick up some classic pieces which are going to complement my current style and see me through this autumn/winter. I’m on a real tight budget at the moment so buying new clothes is really out of the question – but thanks to end of season sales and some wonderful collaborations there’s a few pieces I thought I’d talk about.

One of my favourite places to pick up jewellery is the ASOS sale. For some reason, I’m really loving hexagons right now and from hexagon prints to design to shelving (yes, I caved into the hexagon shelf hype) I couldn’t help but pick up this ASOS Hexagon necklace when I spotted that it had went into sale. I’m actually wearing it in my latest post for an eagle-eyed reader out there, but I love how it complements my outfits right now when I’m wanting to dress up something a little casual. Another ASOS find is this 70s inspired necklaceI picked up last week at a total steal (£2 to be precise – I know right?!). Apart from it slotting nicely design-wise into my wardrobe – as we all know I’m a total sucker for 70s pieces right now – something about the fact that it’s detailing is dark brown caught my eye. It’s not really like anything I’ve seen before and it’s a great colour for this season, I’m already excited to get styling it up.

A few weeks ago, I was kindly invited along to the Tatty Devine #tattyontour jewellery making event at the Baltic. It was a little bloggers preview and a small group of us met the lovely team behind the brand to make ourselves a Bunting Necklace each. There was a huge choice of colours to go for, but with copper/rose gold and grey being my favourite colour combination of the moment – I stuck to this when picking out which bunting I’d like to create the necklace with. I love how it came out and I’ve worn it many times since as it’s such a versatile piece in my collection, plus I’ve never worn it out and not received compliments, so that has to be a good thing!

Watch-wise, I’m all about classic styles. I think watches are certainly more of an investment piece and one that you’re going to like throughout each season is the best idea. Daniel Wellington are one of my favourite brands, so when an email popped into my inbox asking if I’d like one of their watches to style on my blog – I jumped at the chance. Going for the Classy York in Silver, I love the dark brown crocodile leather band on this and how many of my pieces it pairs nicely with. I have quite small wrists so I tend to stay away from larger watch faces that often don’t fit right, but the smaller face on this is perfect for me.

What are your jewellery/watch essentials? Anything you think should be on my wishlist? I’d love to know!

Outfit Details: Shirt – H&M, Skirt – Miss Selfridge, Sunglasses – Primark, Bag – Primark,
Neckerchief – Primark
Something I love to do at the weekends is travel to local historical sites/beauty spots with my family, so when I was recently contacted to talk about a place you’d recommend to someone visiting the North East of England, Cragside sprung into mind. About a 45 minute drive away from Newcastle, Cragside is a stunning house and gardens, with lakes, history and incredible scenery aplenty. It’s under the National Trust, which for young adults is only £2.50 a month membership – making it an absolute bargain, and the perfect location to visit on a sunny afternoon. Yesterday graced us with clear blue skies and the most incredible sun, so I jumped at the chance of shooting some outfit photographs with this picturesque background, the photographs just don’t do the place justice!
Lens-flare aside, this outfit has quickly become my go-to. With a relaxed-fit shirt and this comfortable button up denim skirt, it’s practical and yet oh so easy to mix it up at little. As well as my trust skinny scarf, I picked up this neckerchief the other day at Primark and would seriously recommend it to anyone wanting to add that 70s flare to an outfit on a budget. I have a post coming up all about them and how I style them, but for this outfit, I thought it would look perfect around my neck – giving a little nod to the surroundings, whilst looking a little like a scout. We all know I have a thing for leopard print, but there’s a new print in town and I think it’s here to stay – the snakeskin. I was browsing my local Primark (you know, as you do) and I spotted this snakeskin, fringed backpack just sat on it’s own. I’ll be honest, I wasn’t quite sure whether someone had left theirs or something as it seemed a little too good to be true, but lo and behold I turned the corner and found a few others hiding away. Not even looking at the price tag (oops) I quickly ran to the till and it’s been on my back ever since. It has already stepped up to the title of my Autumn bag, I can’t wait to get styling it!

SIMPLE STEPS TO SORT OUT YOUR WARDROBE

20906042171_c1c10a4ec8_o

Maybe it’s just me, but I really enjoy sorting out my wardrobe. I find there’s nothing more satisfying than an organised rail of clothing which is easy to navigate through. Not only does it look good, but it helps encourage you to wear those pieces you may have forgotten about. For myself, getting ready in the morning and deciding on what to wear that day is one of my favourite things – and having a wardrobe that reflects my style at that time is a must.

Whilst it’s not everyone’s favourite chore, I thought I’d go through some of my top tips on how to get rid of those pieces that are gathering dust and make room for new seasonal items.

1. First thing first, empty your wardrobe completely. I think it helps to be able to visualise each piece of clothing you own, because chances are, you’ll be surprised at just how much that wardrobe was housing. From this I tend to put aside the clothing I definitely want to keep and which pieces I’ve been meaning to donate to charity or sell on depop for a while – leaving me with a pile of clothing I’m on the fence about.
2. Ask yourself, have you worn the piece in the past six months? If the answer is no, you’re probably not going to wear it in the next six months either. Apart from the occasional formal dress that may be an exception, be tough about it. Would you rather a piece of clothing taking up space in your wardrobe that you never wear, or something new that could be your dream find?
3. Does the clothing even fit you properly? It might be your favourite piece of clothing you own, maybe even the best bargain you’ve come across. But if it doesn’t fit you right, and doesn’t make you feel the best you can be – then it’s not for you. I always say, that if you don’t feel excited (or even just comfortable) wearing something, then why keep it? Especially when there may just be someone out there desperately looking for that exact piece!
4. Think of three pieces in your keep pile that you could pair the item with. I tend to do this mainly when shopping for new clothes as it helps prevent me from impulse buys, but I like to imagine three separate outfits that I could wear each piece. If you’re really stuck on whether or not to keep something, then plan out at least three different outfits where you could wear it. Let’s be honest here, we’re all not made of money and we’d all get bored of wearing the exact same outfit day in and day out, so if there’s nothing but a certain skirt or shirt to wear it with – then I’d say it was time to donate it. I’m a huge advocate of having a rail of clothing which you can easily mix and match, it lessens then days of not having anything to wear and makes those mornings where you have five minutes to pull together an outfit all than easier.
5. Consider the upcoming seasons. We all own those pieces that may have been all over social media last season, but are you going to pick it back up the next time around? Probably not. I always try to restrain myself to only a certain number of ‘trend’ items a season, because they’re exactly that – pieces that last the trend and then fall to the back of my wardrobe. So whilst the seasons are transitioning over, I like to strip back to the utmost basics and staples (post coming soon on this!). And then you’re able to see what you have, what you’re missing and which things you’d like to add to your clothing rail for the months ahead.

3 WAYS TO WEAR A DENIM SHIRT WITH NEW LOOK #3: DRESSY(ISH)

16512381433_b1d5763a57_o

Outfit Details: Denim Shirt – c/o New Look, Skirt – Primark, Sleeveless Blazer – Primark, Shoes – Primark, Hat – Primark, Sunglasses – Primark, Tights – c/o Uk Tights, Bag – Helen’s
(Quick apologies for the grainy photographs – I set the wrong camera settings, doh!)

Here with are with my final instalment of the styling challenge I was given by the lovely people over at New Look. I’ve had a really fun time thinking of different ways to dress up the denim shirt, and I’m happy with how they’ve turned out, especially this final one – the dressy version. Okay, so it’s not dressy-dressy, but it’s not too casual either, and it’s certainly very wearable during the day and at night. Pssst, if you haven’t already, make sure you check out my first and second outfits.

Onto the outfit itself, which, without me even realising, is pretty much all Primark (apart from the denim shirt of course, and the bag that I borrowed off Helen). What can I say? I just love Primark and I fully support that you can find some great things in there if you’re willing to root around. My latest find is this sleeveless blazer which caught my eye the other day on a quick visit. I’d been after a sleeveless duster or blazer for a little while, but didn’t want to pay too much – as I didn’t know whether it would suit me and my wardrobe. So when I spotted this Primark offering, I had to pick it up! I love what it adds to my style, and I’m sure it won’t be the final time you see it in my outfit posts. To add some print to this outfit, I decided on this palm print skirt which I bought last summer and got a surprising amount of wear from.

I’ll let you in on a little secret here, but in the majority of my outfit photographs that I’m going all bare-legged… I’m normally wearing a pair of skin coloured tights. I know, I know, it’s terrible right, but my legs are that pale that they tend to go over-exposed in photographs and cause a bit of a lighting nightmare (l o l)! And with that I’ve had the dilemma of wanting to wear open-toed sandals and not being able to, until that is, I was contacted by UK Tights whether I’d like to try a few of their toeless tights. I think it’s pretty safe to say that they are da bomb, such a handy thing to have and you can’t even tell I’m wearing them, which gets a thumbs up in my books. Finally, as this outfit is a little dressier than the others, I thought it were a perfect time to sport a red lip (Topshop Velvet Lips, if you’re wondering) and match it with this dreamy Mulberry bag.
Who says you can’t match your lip colour and bag? I’m all for it!

Which of the three outfits have been your favourite? I’d love to know!

A LIFE UPDATE

16615332240_1344076ed7_o

I’ve been a little quiet on the ol’ blog recently, and this isn’t me giving excuses – but I thought it would be nice to give an update and some insight into what I’ve been up to the past few weeks.
2015 didn’t start off in the most ideal way, but things are changing and I’m in a happy place right now.   Instead of wallowing in self pity and anxiety, I decided to get a grip and start fighting back at the negative thoughts – doing things that scared me, but more on that in a later post. Now I’m not saying I’m cured or anything, but I’ve started travelling alone again and regaining my independence and generally feeling a lot better about things. It’s only been a few weeks, but I’ve already had some incredible opportunities come my way and it really feels like things are starting to fall into place.
On Monday I’ll be doing a work placement for 3(ish) weeks, helping out with a local fashion magazine, attending shoots and even helping host their very own bloggers event. I’m a little bundle of nerves and excitement, but I’m ready to learn as many new things as I possibly can and tackle any challenges that get in my way. Obviously this will be taking up a lot of my time, although I’ll be updating via Twitter and Instagram, so posts may be a little over the place for the next few weeks. I’m trying to get as many posts ready and scheduled as I can, but please bear me!
I’ve also started to knuckle down with my university work, as some of you may know, I’m currently studying my third (and final – eek!) year from home. I’d originally planned on creating a fashion magazine as part of my dissertation, but I’m currently in the midst of a little crisis of indecision and may be launching a website instead. I’ll be looking for a team of writers and any creatives (MUAs, photographers, stylists, illustrators etc) so feel free to get in touch if you’d like to get involved – I’d love to have you on board!
And this is where I need your help. I’m currently needing to reach another 50 responses on this super short survey about web usage for creatives, blogging etc. – so if you could fill this in, I’d really appreciate it. It’s for my dissertation and it’s pretty important, and will certainly help with my final decision.
