Does shaving really make hair grow back thicker?

I’ve asked this to a lot of people (probably not the right people but still…) but everyone gives a different answer, and many of them seemed to have formed elaborate theories supporting their answer.
Can anyone get me the straight dope on this?

Hi non-native!

We actually had a thread on this very topic yesterday.

Hope that thread answers your question. If it doesn’t, feel free to post your questions to that thread.
