If you do not damage the shaving follicle, if you are using a good sharp machine who pulls hair, no changes to your hair will not get any. It just seems that the hairs become darker and thicker as you see them only at the base, and there they are much thicker. To the ends of the hair thinned, and you just compare the thickness of the hair at the base of the thickness of the hair at the ends. A darker color is due to the fact that the newly grown hair has not been subjected to ultraviolet and other external influences. But, believe me, it's the same hair!
