Originally from Asia, threading hair removal is another method used to get rid of unwanted hair. Threading makes use of a thin cotton or polyester thread which is doubled and then twisted. It is then rolled over areas of unwanted hair, plucking the hair at the follicle level. Unlike tweezing, where single hairs are pulled out one at a time, threading can remove short lines of hair.
It’s not permanent. One needs to have threading treatments every 2-6 weeks depending on one’s hair growth.
Benefits of Threading
- It’s extremely sanitary. Nothing but the thread touches the skin, and it’s thrown away after use.
- Great for people with ‘trouble’ brows. Threading has this amazing ability to be so precise in getting each hair it’s after. It has a cult following from those who say that other shaping methods, like tweezing, waxing, or sugaring, could not make their brows look even.
- No chemicals are applied on the skin. Many have allergies and skin sensitivities, which make it a gamble anytime they put product on their skin. With a string, there are no chemicals or products used, and it can prevent a lot of unnecessary irritation. (Sometimes the tech will cleanse skin or apply powder before removing hair, so please alert them of any allergies.)
- It’s very fast. Although every technician is different, it takes the person two minutes
- Temporary results can turn into permanent. Over time, frequent threading can cause the hair follicle to become damaged and stop growing hair.
Areas that can be treated with threading, include the brows, chin, upper lip and full face.
