If I shave my head, will it grow back faster???

So ah... I remember from high-school that they said if you shave your moustache, it'll grow back faster? Some girls seem to be saying that about their legs as well, thus the waxing and yanking.

So... if I shave my head bald, will it grow back faster?

I wish my screen name was something cool, like "Lord Font Leroy" or "The Professor" or maybe "Der Wille Zur Macht" or perhaps "All your base are belong to us."

They say that you know whether you're going to go bald or not based on men on your mother's side of the family. None of them lived long enough to go bald, so I guess my future is up in the air.


As far as hair loss is concerned. Every other aspect of my future has been . . . . foretold.

Nothing grows back faster if you cut it off....if that was the case, guys the world around would be cutting their wangs off repeatedly until it becomes roughly the size of a 747....then cry because they can't do anything with it.

I shave my head, and I am bald on top, so no, that is a myth.

I started going bald in my early 20's. One of the side effects of too much testosterone; it kills off the hair follicles. About a year ago, I started shaving my whole head every morning. Shaving does not make the hair grow faster or fuller.

I'm 20 and getting a swift kick in the ass from male pattern baldness already. I thought I had it beat with diet and exersize because I think thyroid problems are to blame, but the stress of working 60 hour weeks got it falling out again. Its not too bad yet, but its getting more and more noticeable. Theres a place near me that does a full transplant for a couple grand. I might just go for it next summer. Until then, I'll take the shave it short route too.

It's reasons like that why I went to a straight razor....only one blade, and it still shaves closer than a Mach3, or whatever other craptacular idea they come up with.
