This is false.

Shaving does not make hair grow back thicker or faster. Shaving cuts hair at its lowest and thickest point, so it just may appear that way. This illusion depends on the method of hair removal. Between the time you shave to the time it begins to grow back fully, you may have grown more, so more hair and hair follicles grow and appear. But the hair growth is due to normal development, not shaving.

If this myth was true, there would not be a baldness problem in aging men, and all guys (in and past puberty) would have extremely thick beards and mustaches.
