Threading is a method of hair removal dating back to ancient times. Extremely common in the Middle East and India, threading is becoming more popular in Western countries. The process involves removing body hair by the root, using a cotton thread. This type of hair removal is called khite in Arabic and fatlah in Egyptian.
Eyebrow threading involves twisting a piece of thread, usually cotton, into a double strand. This double stranded thread is used to pick up a line of hair and then remove it, creating a very clean, precise hairline. Facial hair removal is the most common use for threading, especially trimming and shaping eyebrows. Hair on the chin, cheeks, sideburns, and upper lips can also be taken off with this technique. Eyebrow threading is the technique preferred by Indian movie stars, who are often distinguished by their crisp brow lines.
Eyebrow threading can be used to eliminate a unibrow, raise the arch of the eyebrow, or add shape and definition to the brow. Because it removes hair by the follicle, it is a reasonably long lasting hair removal technique as well. Repeat visits after three to four weeks are standard. For women who would like to pursue a more natural beauty regimen, eyebrow threading is a good choice, since it does not use harmful products.
Eyebrow threading is a preferred hair removal technique for a following number of reasons.
Unlike tweezing or plucking, eyebrow threading removes one clean line of hair all at once, making it much quicker and easier to shape the brows.
Threading is gentle and does not remove the delicate eyelid skin, or cause burning or irritation.
Eyebrow threading also will not harm the skin like wax and some depilatory creams can. If done correctly, the skin should not be red or irritated for more than a few minutes after the eyebrow threading session.
When compared to other methods of hair removal like Waxing and tweezing require the use of instruments or substances to take the hair off, and contamination can lead to health problems.
This technique requires only a cotton thread, which is discarded after every use, thus eliminating hygienic concerns.
