Many people use waxing as the preferred method to remove unwanted facial hair. Unfortunately, waxing is harsh on sensitive skin and can cause chemical burns and skin damage. Not to mention the fact that many of the chemicals contained in traditional wax formulas are dangerous for your health. Threading, on the other hand, is better than waxing in the following ways:
1. No Dangerous Chemicals
Store-bought and salon wax contains chemicals that might damage your skin. These ingredients include resins, carcinogenic parabens, artificial fragrances, and dangerous dyes.
With threading, you don’t have to worry about any of that. The removal method uses only pure cotton threads and nothing more
2. Good for Sensitive Skin
Those with sensitive skin often struggle with hair removal due to chemical reactions and skin damage. Waxing, depilatory creams, and even tweezing can leave skin red, raw, and inflamed.
With threading, there is little contact with the skin so there is no skin damage. It’s an ideal alternative to waxing for those on prescription acne medications as skin is thinner and more prone to sensitivity in those areas.
3. Works Faster
Another great thing about eyebrow threading is it works much faster than plucking. Instead of pulling each individual hair out one by one, threading grabs one line of hair at once, removing it instantly.
Threading eyebrows and other unwanted facial hair is faster than sugaring and even natural waxing methods because there is no wait time for anything to dry or harden. The hair is just gone.
4. Lasts Longer
Another great thing about threading versus waxing is it lasts much longer. After eyebrow threading, your hair will be gone for 3-4 weeks.
5. Better Overall Value
With traditional salon waxing, your unwanted facial hair (and some of your skin) gets yanked out and you’re sent on your way; oftentimes with painful skin burns and watering eyes.
With eyebrow threading, the process is quick, less painful, and lasts longer. Threading eyebrows also beats waxing for the attractive arch and shape you get the moment you step away from the chair.
