Name: Denise Munk
My name is Denise Munk. My question is as follows:
Why is it the more you shave the faster your hair grows back?
I don't think this is true but is rather a illusion due to
sudden appearance of new growth. Similarly, newly cut nails grow no faster
"old" nails. If you find documented experimental evidence to
support your contention, please share it with Newton!
