I've heard that shaving makes hair grow back thicker, is there any truth to this? I have a little bit of hair under my lower lip, but I wan't it to be more prominent, so if I shave it regularly will it grow back thicker?
No, shaving doesn't make the hair grow back thicker, but it looks thicker, because new hair tapers to be fine at the tip, but shaved hair is cut off full thickness at the end.
Does shaving make it come back faster?

No this an old wives tale, it relates to the fact, that when a baby gets its first haircut, the hair looks longer because the long straggly bits have been removed to make the hair look nice.
