    Brushing, flossing, washing my hair, shaving the regular bits, and general bathing is enough self-maintenance for me. If I were to start doing anything else my life would be nothing but an ever repeating cycle of pulling bits off and sticking bits on. I'm a person, not a craft kit.

    it's partly a myth. it doesn't grow back thicker, the razor just frays the end of the hair and makes it appear thicker. although, even with this knowledge, it scares me lmao
    Ohh wow that makes sense! I never knew 🤔

    Exactly!!!

    It really depends on the type of hair you have. When I shave my legs they get stubbly when they start to grow back?!
    That's because hairs have tapered ends. If you shave you're slicing the top off thus it feels thicker.

    Lol nope! I know some youtubers do this and recommend others to do so too! If you normally have light, fine facial hair then doing this is not a bad idea... however, if you have darker facial hair and it's not so fine, definitely don't do it! Unless you want to end up with a beard. Ok, I'm exaggerating slightly, but it will make your facial hair look darker and coarser and much more noticeable!
    Yeah that's what I thought-I have quite dark hair on my face-I'm a brunnette-so I am not sure if I should try it...

    well guys, In a nut shell we can defiantly say that shaving your face is a bad idea, unless you want to look like Hagrid. On the other hand you get a nice soft face.

    few of my female mates who wax their face have hair growing back thicker than they did before they waxed it .... I wouldn't shave either in case it grows back like how it does on males, despite others saying it doesn't I wouldn't risk it as we all have different body types.

    Threading is good ive heard .
    Not to sound racist but white females are lucky since their hair colour is either blonde or matches their skin colour where as asians/ethnic minorities have black hair which is much more visible on their skin colour.

    Definitely no conflict of interests there.
