The Origin of Threading
Threading has long been popular in many Arab countries, and was well known from indian and Persian culture. It is an Ancient technique used in Egypt in the time of Cleopatra. It is a popular hair removal technique in India and the Middle East. This Ancient technique is becoming more popular these days, as it is a safe, non-toxic, fantastic hair removal method for facial hair and eyebrows primarily for ladies with unwanted facial hair, allergies and skin irritations.
Threading For Keeping the Skin’s Elasticity
Threading Hair Removal helps with the circulation on the area of skin that gets threaded and so this improves the skins texture, keeping the skin tighter, retaining its glow and elasticity. Threading lightly exfoliates the skin. After a Threading Hair Removal Treatment your skin will feel soft and smooth.
Threading vs Waxing
The reason why Threading Hair Removal is preferred over waxing, bleaching, depilatory creams etc, is because these methods may not suit many skin types. Threading Hair Removal is fantastic for those who have sensitive skin (that is too sensitive for waxing, bleaching, depilatory creams), allergies, dry skin, rosacea and that are on medication such as Retin A, isoretinoin of Accutane, it is also great for those who have recently had a Fruit Peel/ AHA Peel/Glycolic Acid as the treatment uses no chemicals whatsoever, that could cause irritation or loss of elasticity. It’s so much softer on the skin then most hair removal methods. Threading hair removal saves your skin from any risk of reaction from chemicals, because it is 100% natural.
Threading is Great for Eyebrows
The cotton thread precisely shapes the eyebrows, giving a perfectly desired, neat, clean, defined look. It is a faster then tweezing. The cotton slides over the skin pulling out each hair in groups or individually.
Lesser Hair Growth Through Threading
Regular threading hair removal treatments eventually damage the hair follicle causing finer, fewer, slower re-growth of new hair. It takes approximately 3-4 weeks for the hairs to grow back, depending on individual hair growth. Threading removes the hair directly from the root and eliminates the problem of ingrown hair in some cases.
Practitioners use a thin, twisted cotton thread which is rolled over usually untidy hairlines, mustaches and other 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 an entire row of hair, resulting in a straighter line. Because a large area of hair is removed at once, it could be a painful, though a Guardian columnist has declared that when done professionally “with a cat’s cradle of fine thread” it can be quick and painless.
