Contrary to perception, threading isn’t a modern technique by any means. This technique has been used in the Middle East and India for several years now. But it’s true that in the past few years, threading has certainly gained widespread popularity and this technique has proved to a great alternative to plucking and threading for most people. However, there are still many people who still don’t know what eyebrow threading is all about and how it can come in handy in daily routine.
Unlike other methods, threading does not use any kind of chemicals; only a soft cotton thread is used. There is no chance of any artificial ingredients or products touching your face and causing irritation. If you have sensitive skin that’s prone to itchiness or redness, you would hugely benefit from an all-natural technique like threading.
Perhaps the biggest benefit of threading is that this technique is capable of shaping eyebrows with stunning precision. Not only multiple hairs can be removed at the same time but individual hairs can also be targeted. Threading combines the ability of waxing to remove multiple hairs simultaneously with the accuracy of tweezing. Threading has the ability of removing a clean line of hair at once which allows the threading artist to shape your eyebrows perfectly. Since there are no other materials used other than the thread, there is no chance of any obstruction of view for the professionals to see what they are doing.
Most of you already know the fact that threading is not as painful as waxing or for that matter any other hair removal technique. This is due to the fact that the thread doesn’t necessarily touch the skin during the whole process. The skin around the eyebrow can be very sensitive which is why techniques that directly involve this skin can be really painful. Such a scenario doesn’t arise in case of threading.
For someone who is using acne mediations, threading can prove to be a much eager alternative to waxing. Those drugs have a tendency to thin the skin even further which will make it more vulnerable in getting damaged during a waxing session.
Have you wondered how long threading lasts? Well, it depends on each individual and how much time it takes for their hair to grow back. In most cases, the result usually lasts for about 2-5 weeks. You also need to remember that threading generally weakens hair follicles which cause the hair to grow less dense over time. In away, the more you thread your eyebrows, the finer your hair will grow.
As threading uses no chemical and is a pretty straightforward process, it is extremely affordable. You won’t have to make a dent in your pockets to get your eyebrows threaded.
Skill and technique
Threading is undoubtedly an ancient technique which requires an immense amount of skill and hours of practice to expertise. Due to the complexity of this procedure, going to a beauty salon is the best thing you can do. Getting a professional hand thread your eyebrows will not only ensure the best results in eyebrow shaping but also the fact that it will be done in the safest way possible.
