If I shave my head will the hair grow back thicker?

QUESTION: Hi Dr. Jones,  If I shave my head will the hair grow back thicker?  My wife says it will, just like her leg hair grows thicker after each shave.  Is this true?  Thanks!

ANSWER:  No no, it’s an old wives’ tale !  Shaving your hair will not make it thicker or stronger. I promise.
