Will my hair grow back thicker?

No, this is physiologically impossible. The soft, fine vellus hair will grow back slowly usually in about 4-8 weeks.

There are two types of hair that grow on our bodies:

  • Vellus hair is the thin, fine, soft hair that typically covers the entire body
  • Terminal hair is the course hair that grows on the head, face in men, underarms, legs and pubic areas
