Depends, how old are u? We shave babies bald so that the hair grows back thicker than before. But once u are an aduly, it's a different story completely. I've a cousin sister who shaves her head bald for religious purpose every year & she doesn't seem to be balding. But again, it all depends on ur age & gender.

Shaving all the hair off your head will not increase or decrease the hair. Balding is not connected to shaving the scalp completely. Balding occurs due to genetic reasons and not due to shaving or not shaving the scalp.

Baldness is a genetic syndrome. For example, if your father is bald, and your mother's father is bald, you have 100% chances of getting bald. Shaving your head wil do nothing. Shaving does effect the thickness of the hair. The act of shaving enlarges the pore and makes the hair thick. However, even the pore can only be enlarged by about 10%. Shaving also keeps your scalp clean.

Hello Syamspai

Baldness occurs in human being due to various factors like chemicals mixed in food / drinking water, mental tension, heavy thinking (work with use of mind), hereditary etc... Some cases Age factor is also there but nowadays we may observe the boys even at the age group of 14 to 16 are also becoming bald.

If we shaves regularly the growing of hair may be more (There are no scientific proofs to confirm the same). For example Matured men regularly shave on face/chin but they cut moustache, so shaved hair area grows faster and the cutting of hair area grows slower. I personally observed the same when I went to pilgrimage tonsured my hair along with face/chin and moustache. Daily shaving part of area (Face/chin part) grew faster than moustache hair and the head hair slower then moustache.

No, shaving your head won't lead to baldness. I can vouch that many of the men and women in my family (of all ages) have shaved heads (for religious reasons) and seen hair grow back just as thick and strong. In fact, your hair will probably seem thicker and stronger when it grows back because it's not damaged at all! However if you are losing hair or balding you cannot gain back hair by shaving your head.

Shaving the head wud not cause baldness, rather hair tends to grow thicker. Poor nutrition or skin problems can be the factors in hair loss. Consult a dermatologist once before you shave your head. Ask him/her about why you are having the hair loss.

Age is primary factor for all the development and issues/problems to a person's body.Shaving one's head will cause the hair to grow back thicker but its depends upon greatly on your age currently.Growth volume differ to age. You can see the higher volume in goungsters and the volume will be too low as the increase in age. Probabaly a clean head shave can reduce so many hair irregularities that affect the growth of hair and its nature. Therefore a change in hair appearance can be felt when grow after shaving. The hair we see on our heads is dead protein. All hair growth takes place in the hair follicle, which is below the skin. When we cut or shave our hair, we're cutting or shaving the dead part of it that has grown out past the surface of the skin. This doesn't affect hair growth in any way, neither positively nor negatively. If shaving somehow did increase hair growth, you can be sure that we'd know about it, because it would essentially be a cure for male pattern baldness. Billions of dollars are spent every year by men trying to re-grow their hair. If all they had to do was shave it for a while, you'd be seeing a lot more shiny domes in the short term. Consider this situation: your hair is receding. You shave it all off and then, after some period of time, you re-grow your hair. You will almost certainly have less hair than before you shaved. Although this is attributable to natural hairloss, it may seem to some people that because they shaved, they lost more hair. onversely, one might shave one's head, live the bald life for a while, and then re-grow it without suffering any hair loss or gain. Some people, having become unaccustomed to the sight of their hair, might perceive even more hair than they previously perceived. In this scenario, a person might believe that shaving actually increased hair growth. While these perceptions might arise naturally, they do not reflect reality. Shaving your head will neither increase nor decrease the number of hairs on your head, nor will it affect their thickness or colour. All shaving will do is to make your hair really short for a while.

Shaving of ones hair will not increase or decrease the growth. Don't go through with the old saying like that. When all the griows together it'll look thicker. That's all. Thicknesswill not improve otherwise. Try out Kesavardhini Hair oil. Mix it with four times coconut oil and massage onto your hair every night before sleep. Take a little oil and massage wuith your fingertips. Leave the oil like that overnight. In the morning have bath. Shampoo only if you feel the hair sticky or dirty. You'll see improvement before the end of three months. All the best

Hello, Shaving will neither cause hair loss or make your hair grow thicker. It has absolutely no relation. If you have genetic hair loss, you may continue to have baldness or else not. Age is a factor for ahor loss but shaving, age and baldness has no relation. Saving will not help to make hair growth more thicker. The fact that growth after a shave is not a tapered shape like it would if it grew just from the follicle. It's like cutting off the top of a tree, as the new growth moves in, the top of the tree is wider than a tree of the same height that didn't get cut. So I hope this clears your query.

Best wishes.

Hi, Shaving your hair in your head won't lead to baldness,. If you have hair in your head, definately you will have the same.
