Holiday Hair removal myths debunked
‘Shaving Will Remove My Tan’
Myth! Natural tans result from melanin production deep within the skin. Shaving only exfoliates the very top layer of skin, meaning it absolutely won’t remove a tan.
‘Shaving Daily Will Make My Hair Grow Back Thicker, Darker And Faster’
Myth! Scientists at Gillette have tested the effects of shaving on hair growth, texture and colour. Results proved that shaving does not affect hair regrowth in any way. Shaving may alter the way hair initially feels after removal because it’s altered the tip shape of the regrowing hair.
‘Laser Hair Removal Causes Ingrown Hairs’
Myth! It’s actually the complete opposite. Laser hair removal significantly reduces the chances of getting ingrown hairs because it destroys the hair follicle, effectively killing the ingrown hair.
