|Unwanted hair for women is normal, maybe due to age,
colouring or even heredity, but it is still very unwelcome. Unwanted hair appears all over
the face for women, upper lip (moustache) being the obvious, misshapen eyebrows, the chin,
forehead and the sides of the face (cheeks). These are all areas that women find
embarrassing to have unwanted hair showing.
Once unwanted hair was dealt with by
shaving, which is not very feminine, and then the hair could return thicker. Cosmetic
companies then made available a multitude of creams to remove unwanted hair.
Other options that are available to women can be the obvious and painful waxing or even
electrolysis, whereas the bleaching option to disguise the unwanted hair just means the
woman ends up having just a lighter coloured moustache.
For women today there is another and more pleasant option to rid unwanted facial hair.
It's called Threading! This treatment can tackle the unwanted hair of the upper lip,
eyebrows, chin and sides of the face (cheek).
The Threading procedure consists of a very thin (cotton or polyester)
thread that is doubled, then twisted. It is then rolled over areas of unwanted hair,
plucking the hair at the follicle level. Unlike using tweezers where the single hair is
painstakingly and labouriously pulled out one at a time, the threading method can remove
short lines of hair. There are a few different techniques for threading. These include the
hand method, mouth method and neck. Each technique has advantages and disadvantages;
however, the mouth holding method is the fastest and most precise.
The face is a very delicate area and as several hairs are removed at once, Threading
can be painful if not done properly. However a good professional beautician can decrease
the chances of any discomfort from Threading for most women. The process removes the fine
and fuzzy hair right from the root. If it sounds painful, consider the options.
Threading is said to be like waxing in getting the desired look, except Threading is
more gentle and a more all round desirable option for women. Threading does not allow the
hair to grow back darker or thicker. That only happens with shaving. If a woman uses the
shaving option on her lip, the unwanted hair will come back stubbly, and eventually as
strong as a man's. The use of a cream means the woman would be subjecting themselves to a
possible chemical reaction, and also the cream option does not fully rid the hair at the
root, so that means it is more likely just to grow back faster and thicker.
The majority women that have experienced Threading say it is the best method of
unwanted hair removal from the upper lip. One other benefit is that you don't have to wait
for the hair to grow a certain length, so the woman can maintain the upkeep of the desired
Some of the benefits that a woman can gain from a threading hair removal: No chemicals
are used that will be applied on your skin, which could cause irritations or may
contradict with medications that a woman may be taking. Even if some women are suffering
from certain medical conditions that will conflict with sugaring or waxing, you can still
have Threading done.
It is also a very quick and sanitary procedure. This is because there is nothing else that
will touch your skin but the cotton thread and this is always thrown away after using it
on a client. The same cotton thread is never used on another client.
The temporary results from threading could also become permanent. This is because
frequent threading can cause damage to the hair follicle over time, so preventing hair
growth, unlike shaving and waxing that allows the hair to grow faster and thicker.
