You can’t catch a cold from going outside without a jacket, and hairs don’t grow back thicker after you pluck them. I swear.
In fact, repeatedly plucking hairs can scar the follicle, which over time can lead to permanent loss of that hair. It is actually a very inexpensive way to remove unwanted hairs.
Waxing, threading, and plucking hairs are essentially the same thing; the hairs usually will grow back (unless you perform this repeatedly over a long period of time).
Electrolysis and laser hair removal, in contrast, destroy the hair follicle. Most of these hairs will not grow back and repeated treatment will lead to permanent hair removal.
If you pluck your hairs:
- Start with good, clean slanted or straight tweezers. Be sure the edges are sharp, not damaged.
- Pluck in the direction that the hair grows.
- Grab and pull the hair out in one quick motion.
- Pluck only one hair at a time.
- Repeat again.
