What You Must Know Before Threading Your Eyebrows For The First Time?

Waxing is one of the better ways to do away with excess facial hair. However, if you are not comfortable with the same, you can always opt for eyebrow threading, which is an ancient way of removing hair.

In this article, let us find out what are the few essential aspects that you must take into account before you can go for this ancient technique of hair removal. So, read on for better insight.

Threading your eyebrows – Know specific facts

Go through the following information so that you have a better idea about the entire process.

1. Threading is a simple process

In this process, you use a thin thread, which when twisted and rolled pulls out the ingrowth hair from your eyebrow area. The hair comes out from the follicle. It does not cause any mess and takes lesser time as compared to waxing, which requires some preparation.

2. A good solution if you have sensitive skin

Unlike waxing, which is painful and messy, if you cannot tolerate pain caused by waxing, this is perhaps a better option. Also, if your skin is sensitive, you can opt for eyebrow threading. Another advantage of threading is that you do not have to use any cream that removes hair from the skin. Often, these creams contain chemicals that may cause more harm to your skin than good.

3. Eyebrow threading allows for better shaping

Unlike waxing, which will not allow you to shape your eyebrows, threading will undoubtedly allow you that freedom. You can ask your beautician or therapist to shape your eyebrows and choose to keep it thin or thicker.

These days, you will find that eyebrow blading has also become a very common and much sought after option for giving a facelift to your eyebrows. However, if you are looking for a faster or a quick fix, threading is a better option. 

4. Scrub your face before eyebrow threading

To get better results, you must exfoliate or scrub your entire face before you go in for threading. That is because it will allow your therapist or beautician to work upon your eyebrows better.

5. Expect some redness after threading

If you have never done threading before and you experience redness after the process, you might be confused and misinterpret it as some adverse reaction. However, if you see any redness, it is a very common effect.

This condition usually goes away after some time, and you can always apply cold gel or ice water to the area so that the redness goes away quickly.

6. Avoid makeup before threading

Before visiting the therapist, make sure you do not apply any makeup at least in the eyebrow area. That is because threading becomes easier and smoother if you do not have any makeup on. And even if you have some, it will be removed before starting the process. Last but not least, if you are threading your eyebrows for the first time, make sure you get it done from a reliable therapist. This will help you to not take an aversion to it due to unnecessary pain.
