Threading, which is now making a comeback, was vital in ancient societies

Threading is an ancient hair removal method. Threading was a traditional Chinese beauty technique named “Jiao Mian”,”Kai lian”, “Kai Mian”, even though many people believe that is from southern Asian and the Middle East, named “khite” in Arabic and “fatlah” in Egypt.

In China, a long time ago, threading was a vital adulthood rite for a bride before her wedding ceremony. This rite came along with a meal consisting of dumplings. Although most women received the threading rite from a senior family member only once in their life, now there are so many women who do threading before their make up so that the foundation or facial powder can be applied perfectly.facial threading is vital before giving make up

As threading removes facial lanugos (fine downy hair) without heating the skin up (unlike waxing), it results in a clean, tidy, brighter (whiter), smooth non-irritated skin. After hair removal by thread, the skin looks flush? and glamorous.

There is an ancient legend about threading: in the Sui dynasty, one girl’s family wanted their daughter to escape from being sent to the palace, so they threaded her face, then put lots of make up on her. No one could recognise her, then she was taken to her fiancé‘s home and became a beautiful bride. Since then people have copied the threading and make up idea.

What is threading?

Threading is using twisted cotton thread to twist away unwanted fine hairs. The threading practitioner holds one end of a cotton thread in her/his teeth and the other end in her/his left hand. The middle part of the thread is looped through two fingers (index and thumb or middle finger) of the right hand, and the loop used to trap unwanted hair so that it can be easily twisted or plucked from the skin. It is quick and powerful enough to remove hair from the root even for short hairs. Threading ensures that the hair removed grows back slower and thinner.

Threading eyebrows is becoming a better alternative to traditional hair removal – waxing – especially to those with sensitive skin. In recent years, many western people have come to realise that this facial hair removal method is a top choice when compared to other options. One reason for its continued popularity is that it is so much healthier for the skin and doesn’t result in ingrown hair.

The threading method of hair removal is used mostly in the facial area; however, it also works on any body parts with fine hair such as the belly button and the toes.

Advantages and disadvantages of threading

There are some advantages of threading over other methods – firstly it is fast and far less painful than some other options.
One of the best features of threading is that it is suitable even for skin which is too sensitive for laser hair removal or waxing.
No chemicals are involved so there is no risk of a reaction setting in.
There are some disadvantages of threading.  Threading can only work on firm flat surfaces. The client is asked to stretch their skin of threaded area, which can be uncomfortable. Threading is difficult to perform on body areas that are not flat, such as the skin with acne as it can cause acne rupture.
However, it takes a while for a threaded hair to grow back, so if some hairs have been threaded accidentally, this can be a problem. So it is vital to go to an experienced and skilled practitioner.
