Will using a razor comb make hair thicker?

My friends are telling me that using a razor comb on your hair makes it thicker. Is this true?



***********

Actually, razor combs do quite the opposite.

Their use is best suited for people who already have extremely thick hair and want to thin their hair. Razoring hair reduces the volume of hair, and helps thick hair lay down and behave better.

When you razor hair, it degrades the actual structure of the hair and can lead to split ends and basic damage. Over time, razoring can obliterate the hair altogether.

The use of razor combs should be limited. If you razor your own hair to close to the scalp for example, it can cause your hair to look poofy and frizzy and stand up.

Razor cuts are done to fringe hair or to give curls more definition. Any type of razor cut should be left to the professionals.

Thinning shears can be used to increase volume but you have to know how to use them. Since there are so many variables, there is no 'one size fits all' recommendation for using them.

Instead of using razor combs, consume foods that help grow thicker hair.
