That is a myth, actually. Hair does not come back "twice as strong" if you shave it. That's an old wives' tale, and generally perpetuated now by people who are ignorant of grooming standards.

Again, not true. The way the strands are cut with a razor, particularly a multi-blade razor (at an angle, rather than blunt) only lend the appearance that the hair grows in faster or thicker. That statement is like saying that the hair and nails actually grow post-mortem (after death).

Hair regrowth depends on the individual. I've known women that can shave their legs, arms, whatever and be smooth for 2-3 days, or women like me who can have slight stubble at the end of 24 hours. Of course, the hair on my head also grows slightly faster than the average person's hair, so it's a trade off.
