THREADING AND WAXING

Ridha says…

What is threading?

Threading is an ancient hair removal technique using cotton thread, practised for centuries mainly amongst the Asian and Middle Eastern regions.

How does threading work?

A thin cotton thread is twisted into a double strand which is then swept along the skin in rhythmic movements. The unwanted hairs are secured in the thread and lifted from the follicle with precision & finesse.

Is threading painful?

Many of my clients and myself would agree that threading causes less discomfort than brow waxing as it targets individual hairs instead of removing it as a whole strip. Waxing can also break the hairs whilst be being pulled out the skin which will cause ingrowth and if having to repeat the wax over a waxed area, some irritation. Whereas the thread can be run over a certain area multiple times without causing any irritation and also no chance of broken hairs. But of course, every individual’s pain threshold is different so it varies from person to person.

How long does threading take?

A simple eyebrow threading can take up to just 5 – 7 minutes, upper lip 3 – 4 minutes and a full face can be completed within 20 – 30 minutes.

Is Threading better then Waxing or Tweezing?

Yes! Threading is known to be a superior option to waxing and tweezing. This eastern method requires less discomfort & eliminates the chance of irritation such as wax that is too hot. Threading keeps skin irritation to a minimum, excessive pulling around the eyes is eliminated. One of the major drawbacks of waxing and tweezing is that it’s easy to remove the wrong hairs. Threading offers the best solution as the main attribute of threading is precision.

How long does threading last?

Hair is removed from the root so there is a slower regrowth process. Depending on your hair type full regrowth can take from 2 – 6 weeks. Hair will grow back finer and sparse after repeated threading because the hair is pulled out at the root, which causes it to weaken through the process. In the long run, this saves time money and mainly maintenance.

Beauty-waxing Regular waxing will eventually lead to much finer hair and more sparse re-growth.
