    It’s hard to understand before shaving though, because hair, being at its original length, stops growing, with some hairs shedding and growing back from scratch like everywhere, but it’s hard to pin point their growth in the middle of a lot of longer hair :). It’s much easier after shaving as hair “needs” to grow back all the way up to its original length and we can compare it to the smooth just shaved skin.
    Fun trivia, hair is not actually thicker, of course, but without its tip it seems like so, as the follicle keeps pushing out the severed blunt end which is more rigid. Especially noticeable as it reaches its original length with this blunt tip :), but it also starts to soften back and tip also starts wearing and tapering out, some hair which is old falls off. But the root remains more or less the same :).
