why, when you shave, is the regrowth coarser?

    maybe because you chop off the hair at an angle when you shave and so it feels sharper and stuff when it regrows?

    Because it hates being cut and its the hairs revenge on your face.

    Or perhaps because unlike with the first hair which has a fine tip, like the hair on your head you are cutting it. This means the top of the hair is flat and its edges sharp.

    Also a longer hair will bend and move, a short one will not, thus making it feel more tough.

    obviously because your cutting off the tapered end and leaving a blunt end..

    Your not that flexable? I thought all women were, all the women I've been with have been.

    if it hasnt already been answered to your satisfaction, basically:

    uncut hair:

    ...../|
    ..../.|
    ....|.|
    ....|.|

    cut hair:

    ....|¯|
    ....|..|
    ....|..|
    ....|..|

    as you can see by my excellent diagrams, from the top the cut hair has a flatter profile and thus looks darker. Also, because it is thicker it is more rigid, so when you feel it, it feels coarse rather than fine.
