Head Shaving Myths Debunked

Head Shaving Myths Debunked

Head shaving isn't just a fashion statement; it’s an attitude, a lifestyle, a choice.

But unfortunately, head shaving has also become the subject of many myths and misconceptions. Let’s debunk some of these myths.

Myth #1: Head shaving causes hair to grow back thicker.

This is a common myth that has been circulating for years. The truth is that hair does not grow back thicker or faster after shaving. When you shave your head, you are simply cutting the hair at the surface of the scalp, and it has no effect on the root of the hair. Hair growth is determined by genetics and hormones, not by shaving.

Myth #2: You can't grow your hair back after shaving your head.

Kind of contrary to myth #1 right? This is a myth that keeps many people from shaving their heads. They fear that once they shave their head, they will never be able to grow their hair back. However, this is not true. Hair growth is a natural process that occurs regardless of whether you shave your head or not. Your hair will grow back after shaving, but the rate of growth may differ depending on your hair type and genetics.

Myth #2: Head shaving is only for men.

Head shaving is for anyone who wants to do it. There is no gender restriction on this trend. Women and men alike can shave their heads and look great doing it. Don't let societal norms and stereotypes dictate what you can or cannot do with your hair.

Myth #4: Head shaving is painful.

Many people think that shaving your head is painful because of the potential for nicks and cuts. However, if you take your time and use the right tools, you can have a pain-free head shaving experience. The most challenging part is shaving areas you can't see like the back of the headOur manual razor, the SkullGlider, is specially designed for head shaving as it has a flexible shaving head. Our electric shaver, the BOLD 4.0, features a patented shaving head which flexes as you move across the skin. This is the easiest method of shaving as you can glide across the whole head and you don't need shaving cream.

As a society, we should support each other in our choices, whether it is to shave our heads or not. Let's break free from societal norms and embrace the beauty of diversity.
