    i shaved my hairs on my face for the first time but i did it with an electrical shaver which was meant to be for nasal hair
    i know it was a bit stupid
    would this effect its growth or colour
    would i make it grow back thicker and darker and more stubbly
    also why is it burning

    no need to fret! i've been in your place haha. i really wish you hadn't done it as shaving does indeed affect both colour and growth. if i could meet 12 year old me, i would tell her to put down that shaver. when it grows back, it'll be thicker, darker and indeed more stubby. it grows out pretty fast too, so that means i've had to frequently shave ever since.

    it burns as it means the skin is thinner now, and it's more sensitve. my facial skin has become super sensitive after i started shaving and many times, cosmetics would end up 'burning' the thinned skin area. i suggest never shaving again and letting the area heal. after that, maybe start waxing instead? shaving rlly ruins skin
