What would you like to do?
If some arm hair was burned or cut off what controls the regrowth so that it grows back to the same length as the rest of the hair on the arm?
The length of all of your body hair, including arm hair is controlled by the growing cycle. A hair strands growth cycle consist of: a growing period a resting period falling out and start of new growth period with a new hair strand.
The length of the growing period is fixed for each type of hair (like arm hair). The hairs grow a certain amount every day during the growth period and then stop growing. When they stop growing they are all the same length since they have grown the same amount each day for the same number of days. Usually the hairs on your arm (or leg or head) are in a mixture of different periods; otherwise all the hair would fall out at the same time. This is why the hair on your legs looks thinner after you have shaved them; only the hairs in the growing period start growing right away.

Answer . I shave the hair on my arms, and it's perfectly fine. You just have to shave it like every two days at least.
Hair growth is an ongoing process. As long as the hair follicleis functional, hair will grow at approximately 1/2 inch a month - alittle faster in the summer and a little slow…er in the winter. Theidea that cutting hair or nails frequently will increase growth, orslow it down, or make the hair grow back thicker and darker are alla silly myths. They are stories designed by people to explainsomething that they didn't understand. HOW does the hair grown? It starts with a message in the DNA of theStratum germinativum at the base (papilla) of the hair follicle.After mitosis of the germinal cell layer, new cells undergo amaturation process (infusion of keratin into the cells), grow upthrough the follicle and finally spring forth into the outsideworld as a shaft of hair. Hair growth stops when hormonal messagesclose down the functioning follicle. It probably simply grows back up to its terminal length, justwithout the thinner tip, that's why it seems thicker, it simplylacks the part of the hair shaft which has been created first whichis tapered and much thinner, that's how the myth of it growing backthicker and darker originated, obviously at parity of length ablunt hair seems thicker than a tapered one, plus when it's veryshort it's rigid, stubbly and bristly.
Well, it's very hard to understand. Hair grows under your arms because we're mamals. Now, don't get confused. We are humans but we're mamals too. If you don't understand, you …could always ask a teacher or search it on Google. that's the most I know about this subject. But, don't worry, it's completely normal to grow hair under your arms.
Some people who want to rid of their hair on their arms can shave it with a razor and shaving foam, however once you have done that the hair grows back very long making your a…rms hairy hope this helps!
Hair grows back one way or another. Skin cells in the head will produce the material which sprouts out as hair.. If the scalp was burnt and it was scarred your hair may not g…row back though. The hair follicles would have been damaged. But if your hair just got burnt it will grow back.
yes **Edit** Yes, hair never stops growing, no matter what. Though the process may be a little slower when burned. I never had my hair burned, but it sounds rather painful….
26/May/2009 . There is no evidence that hair grows more quickly, or thickly, after it has been shaved.. See these related links:. http://www.pg.com/science/haircare/hair_tw…h_toc.htm. http://www.bodyhairremovalnews.com/Does-Hair-Grow-Back-Thicker-When-You-Shave.htm
Yes It Does Depending On How Bad The Burn Is.
I recently cut your hair off 2 months ago how long would it take for you to grow your hair back to normal length?
Yes, have plenty for proof
Women and men's arm hair are the same just if you shave them they come back darker and thicker.
