hey i was reading arnold encyclopedia "the bible" and theres a section on hair removal and i am just curious who shaves so you can see there muscle definition better and how much of a diffrenece does it make anyhow, i was just curious and no one has mentioned it i dotn think
ive found like im sure you will that when you shave body hair it ends up growing back thicker and in more places than it was before
I'm a very hairy beast, not freakish like some people I know, but very hairy. I've tried shaving, which just does look very natural on me, but does show A LOT more muscle definition, but like I said it doesn't look real natural and I get ingrown hairs etc's. So what I've found works best is using an old beard trimmer of mine, setting it to 1/8 an inch and just doing almost everything. Looks very natural, shows a lot more muscle definition, avoids the ingrown hairs and my wife thinks it looks great too. Mind you I'm the kind of guy that when I used to work full time had to shave twice a day if I had an evening meeting so I sometimes have to trim once a week.
if you had done a little search, you would have seen that this subject has been discussed up the ying yang and back.
That's a load of crap, and when it's shaved it looks significantly better.Originally Posted by theperfectbeast

nah Vido, i gotta disagree, when you start shaving your chest your hair does grow back thicker. at least for the few guys, myself included, that i know. perhaps you got lucky you bastard!!!!!!! LOL
i wish i got lucky... wait a minute.... DOH!!!!!!!!
If you never shave, the hair you see is the "fine" end of a hair taper. When you shave, you cut it down to the thick end, so when it grows out it appears thicker. Its the same hair though, not new growth.
Vido is correct. It does not grow back thicker. When you shave you remove the natural taper of the hair and are, in essence, cutting it at its base. As a result it appears thicker. Think of it as cutting off a tree at it's base. The base is thicker, the top limbs are narrow and skinny.Originally Posted by not_big_enuf
*edit...despite being hair master I must give credit where credit is due. I think Alex (Belial) came up with the analogy in a previous post.

well damn. thanks for the lesson. i am humbled!
glad i learn something everyday. so in reality the hair just gets thicker correct?
It doesn't actually GET thicker when it comes back. It's just real fine at the tip before you shave it, but the hair follicle has matured since it first started growing hair, and thats why when you shave it, it grows back as the dark/thicker matured hair.Originally Posted by BlingMeter
