To Baccy


#1

One good way to tell new hair from ordinary regrown shaved hair, is to examine the end of each hair.

The hair that was growing all along, but which had been shaved close to the scalp, will be pretty uniform in diameter along its length up to the cut end, which would be even more apparent when viewed through a magnifying glass or microscope.

Newly sprouted hair will taper near the end of its shaft, until the last little bit is almost invisible to the naked eye.

But still remember that because of hair cycling, any hair showing this tapering could simply be hair that was regrowing normally anyway.

When I originally looked at Baccy’s photo, I noticed that many of the new terminal hairs do seem to taper at the tip which potentially could indicate new growth. It is very hard to truly tell from the photo and I may be wrong but this could be a positive indicator if true.
