Does shaving make my hair grow back thicker?

When you shave, the hair is cut from the surface of the skin not the root and the hair is already thicker in the root area and thins to the end. So when it grow back, it does look thicker but it doesn’t mean it becomes thicker.

Some people have thick and dark hair while some have fine and light colored hair and this is determined by their genes. You will never see a person with fine light colored hair become having a full head of thick dark hair one day unless he or she is wearing a wig.
