  • The waxing will make it grow softer the shaving will grow thick I just did my lip, underarms and the sides of my face and they grow back soft. I have been doing it for 1 year now and I love it. It hurts of course but you just have to be quick while you yank out the roots...LOL
    But hey it's worth it.

  • hello, professional stylist, waxing will actually make it come back less...if you bleach you can still see the hair,, google threading, and got and get it done, it does not hurt, no breakouts (like from depilitory) well money invested! If you shave you will be able to see the stubble, but nothing you do to the outside of your hair cand make it grow back thicker!!!

  • it will only grow back thicker and draker with shaving. waxing won't do that and it takes about 2 weeks to grow back
