Threading is an acquired skill that one must learn from a trained professional. It is a craft that requires time and practice in order to perfect. It is also an art form, creating clean lines with precision and refining the quality as well as the appearance of the face. Threading is the answer for those who are looking for a natural and beneficial technique of hair removal.
Threading, or Khite, has been around for many hundreds of years and continues to be a traditional way of removing hair in parts of Asia and the Middle East. A few years ago, it experienced a sort of come back in the West as all sorts of Eastern things (including Rumi and hennaing) became popular. It is still widely available in ethic salons and salons specializing in natural hair removals.
The Process of Threading Hair removal
The procedure utilizes a length of thread, which is twisted back and forth along the hairs, which are to be removed. The twisting action of the thread traps the hair and lifts it out of the follicle. This method of hair removal is more effective and less painful than tweezing. At Salon Rupa, when the threading is completed, we apply our own blend of essential oils to the area.
What does threading involve?
Threading involves quickly rolling a twisted piece of thread back and forth across clean skin. Hairs become trapped in the string and are ripped out or break off. This process generally needs to be done by a professional, since speed and technique are important – although there are Khite kits out there if you want to learn how to do it yourself. Someone who has done the process many times can manipulate the string expertly, causing most hairs to be ripped out (rather than broken off) and causing hairs to be removed only from those areas they are not wanted. This process is most often used for eyebrows and facial hair.
How effective is threading as a hair removal method?
If nothing else, threading is a very interesting and effective way to get rid of facial and brow hair. Watching a professional at work is really fascinating since the hands basically race across the face, threading and twisting the thread. In many cases, the aesthetician will have the string looped intricately around their hands, to better be able to control the string. Some salons now use machines that hold threads during Khite. This method is environmentally friendly and far quicker than tweezing alone. It is less expensive than waxing. Since many hairs are pulled so quickly, some women find that there is less pain than tweezing, partly because the whole thing is over so fast. Results last up to three weeks or as little as two weeks. If someone who is not very proficient attempts threading, there may be more broken than pulled hairs. The results, in this case, will last only days.
Will threading cause any pink and puffiness?
As with tweezing, the skin may be pink and puffy after threading. A simple ice cube can help reduce the temporary problem. More seriously, infection and irritation can follow if the area is not clean and hygiene is not properly attended to. Those who live far from metropolitan centers may have a difficult time finding a reputable practitioner.
Shall I choose to thread or tweezing?
Hairchick highly recommends threading or khite to anyone who plucks their brows and can find a reputable practitioner of this technique. It is a truly unique experience and makes a twenty-minute tweezing chore a fun five minutes!
