Waxing Vs. Threading

-Used in Eastern countries, like Egypt and India. It has become very popular here. It removes the entire hair follicle, lasting up to 6 weeks.

How it works-A cotton thread is pulling against the unwanted hair in a twisting motion, traps the hair in the thread, and lifts the hair right out of the follicle. 

  • Much cleaner. Nothing but the thread touches your skin and its thrown away as soon as its done being used.
  • There are no chemicals being used. So if you get very badly irritated as some as my friends do by the wax itself this has nothing like that involved. 

Waxing-Removes hair using a wax product to remove entire hair follicle from the root. Can last up to 6 weeks.

Hot it works-A warm wax is spread over your hair (in the direction of the way your hair grows) and a paper strip is put on top of the warm wax and it softens out. Then you PULL and it removes your unwanted hair. 
  • Done very quickly 
  • Can easily be mastered by yourself at home 

I have done both. I don't only do my eyebrows but I also do my face. I am Greek and was "blessed" to be very hairy lol. When I would wax my face and my eyebrows my skin would get very very irritated and stay read for a few days. I wouldn't mind the pain because thats the only thing I knew would get rid of the hair, so I stuck with it.
Yesterday I went threading for the first time ever! I was so scared but thought what the heck let me give it a try. Fist off I fell in love with the girl who did it for me. She was so nice and made me feel very comfortable (for me thats a big factor). She threaded my eye brows that came out awesome. I asked her if they wax or do the threading for the face and she said it is up to me and whatever I decide. I decided to thread. Did not hurt as much as I thought. My face came out looking so smooth and clean. 
For me I am defiantly leaving waxing as a thing in the past. THREADING ALL THE WAY!
