A part of being a woman involves taking care of your eyebrows. Waxing vs. threading seems to be the big question. I know some people that say waxing is better while others say threading is better. So let’s looks at how each process works.
This involves taking a plastic strip with hot wax on one side. This plastic strip is typically a stencil that corresponds to the desired eyebrow shape (arched, flat, curved, etc.) The strip is the gently pressed on the eyebrow for the wax to take hold. Then the strip is quickly ripped off to remove the hair.
This can be done up to every 4 weeks and typically lasts up to four weeks.
A pro for threading is that waxing places are more abundant than threading places.
A con is that the wax can burn or peel off some of your skin (this has happened to someone I knew and it was not pretty!).
Threading is an ancient hair removal form. A piece of cotton thread is taken and looped around a row of hairs. Then these hairs are pulled from the skin.
This can be done up to every 10 days, but it lasts about four weeks.
Pros for threading is that it is typically cheaper, involves almost zero contact with your skin, process does not take as long, better for sensitive skin.
A con is that if there is a very small hair just starting to grow in, the thread cannot always get them like waxing can.
Threading is my preference. I tried waxing once and will not try it again. My skin was red for hours afterward, the process was painful, and tore a little of my skin. I love threading because I have a nice shape from it, it is very quick, and I can go in public afterward and not worry how red my eyebrows look.
So which do you think is better? Waxing or threading?
