In the Thick of It: Does Cutting Your Hair Make It Grow Back Thicker?

Ugh. Look at your hair – so thin, so brittle, you might as well cut it all off. In a few months, it would be just as long as it is now, except way shinier and thicker, right? Before you go rushing to your barber or salon, there are a few follicle facts you should know.

First and foremost, let’s get this straight: shaving or cutting your hair will not make it grow back thicker – but it does help make it look that way (which is probably why so many people believe in the old wives tale that it had to be debunked by Snopes, the Internet watch-dog that sets all of those darned rumors straight).

According to hair expert Philip Kingsley, you have to think of your hair as a “bamboo cane: a long cane flexes easily, but the same cane cut short feels harder and tougher”. The reason your hair looks so much thicker and healthier when it is freshly-cut is because the ends of your hair are the oldest on your head — they are thinner and more fragile than the hair closer to your scalp (simply put, it is dead hair). In addition, the more times you have straightened, teased, or curled your hair into submission with various styling products, tools, and treatment, the weaker your ends are.

Because of this, trimming your hair gives the illusion of thicker, healthier hair, and styling it with some chic layers can give your hair some next-level volume. These cuts for men and women create the illusion of thickness in your hair, therefore making it look like – you guessed it – your hair grew back thicker.
