Differences Between Waxing and Threading

When it comes to unwanted hair, there are many ways to get rid of it. Waxing and threading are two popular methods. While these are typically lumped into the same category, they are very different. Here’s what you need to know about the differences and benefits of waxing and threading.

Waxing vs Threading

Waxing, as the name suggests, involves apply wax to the skin. The wax solidifies and traps the hairs. It is then pulled off, ripping the hairs out of the skin.

On the other hand, threading involves using cotton threads the pinch the hairs and pull each strand of hair out of the follicles.

While waxing removes the hairs in only one direction, threading doesn’t. threading removes the hair innumerous directions which may have a negative side effect on the follicle and the skin around it.

Can Either Method Damage Your Brows?

Threading is extremely damaging to the hair follicle. It tears the follicle, which is why many people find it so painful. If the follicle is damaged enough, the hair removal could be permanent. While that may seem like a good thing, it’s not always good. Especially when it comes to your brows.

What’s more, there is the chance that the hair isn’t removed at all, but just broken off at the skin’s surface. Furthermore, threading breaks the hair, causing it to grow in different directions.

Benefits of Waxing vs. Threading

When performed correctly, waxing is much more gently on hair follicles and skin. This hinges on you taking the proper precautions, like a pre wax treatment. This helps the wax remove the hair easier, and gentler, with much less chance of breaking or tearing.

That’s not to say that there are no benefits of threading. Since it has little to no contact with the skin, there is less chance of irritation or burns. This makes it a good option for anyone with skin prone to chemical or allergic reactions.
