Threading is an ancient method of hair removal which originated in the Indian subcontinent, spread to the Middle and Far East, and is now gaining popularity in many Western countries.
Eyebrow threading results last 2-3 weeks and hair tends to grow back finer and lighter.
There are no risks associated with threading – it is a very gentle hair removal method, and it is actually the best way to remove ingrown hair.
In comparison, tweezing needs to be done regularly, if not daily.
Waxing, on the other hand, has longer results, but can cause burns or redness on sensitive facial skin.
How is it done ?
Threading is a technique for removing hair at the root and is used primarily on facial hair.
A cotton thread is used in a twisting motion to trap and lift hair right out of the follicle.
