    Waxing is simply plucking. Instead of plucking hairs one at a time, waxing grabs and plucks multiple hairs in a single pull.

    Plucking removes the hair but it doesn't change the structures beneath the skin surface which produced the hair. Those structure keep right on producing hair and eventually that hair will emerge from the skin surface. That is, the plucked hair grows back.

    Firstly: your hair does NOT grow thicker and quicker after shaving.  This is a myth. Your skin can't grow extra follicles and single follicles can't grow two hairs. The number of hair follicles you have at birth is the number you have all your life and each follicle produces one hair. 

    Waxing yanks out hair at the roots and this does damage hair follicles. People who wax frequently notice that many hairs never grow back. This is because the follicles have been damaged to the point they no longer produce hair.  One or two waxing won't do this, but frequent long term waxing  does men's fewer active hair follicles in the long term

    Shaving cuts the hair at the skin's surface. It does nothing to the roots or hair in the skin.  The hair will grow back again. The re emerging hair will have a dark blunt tip rather than the  transluscent fine pointed tip it usually has. This blunt dark tip gives the illusion of thicker quick growing hair. Shaving doesn't damage the roots and follicles

    If you want to to be hair free forever waxing is better. If this is a one or two time thing and you want your hair to return then shaving is better.

    a) yes...................

    Yes, when you shave, hair grows back quicker and thicker than before.

    So the next time you wax and shave, you will have even more hair to remove.

    Yes.  Because hair grows.  Unless you remove the roots,  which basically takes surgery, it will grow.  Making it shorter (by shaving, or wax) does no stop it growing.

    Yes, shaving and waxing are not a permanent hair removal method and therefore the hair grows back after some time. It depends on the hair growth in how many times it grows back.

    Hope this will help..
