Is it safe to shave?

Posted on March 15, 2014 at 12:00pm 2 Comments

I haven't had a full head of hair for nearly three years now, and have only just come to terms with shaving my head whenever the straggly hairs come to light (it makes wearing wigs a lot more comfortable).

But recently a lot more hair has started to grow, mostly due to a new boyfriend and generally feeling better about myself.

I'm worried that the shaving may be discouraging the hair to grow, has anyone else experienced this? Should I just let it grow and cut it all the same…
