Threading

What is Threading?

Threading is 5000 years old very common hair removal procedure used in several Asian countries like India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Nepal, and Persia.
Threading is based on twisting a cotton thread to make a loop. By the motion of loop we pull the hairs out. If done correctly Hairs are pulled out from the roots.
A threader uses a pure cotton thread which is rolled over hairs to pull the hairs out at the follicle level. Unlike tweezing where a single hair is pulled out, threading can remove an entire row of hairs.

History

It is found mainly in Asian and Middle Eastern countries. In Persian culture, it is called BANDE ABRU (ABRU means Eyebrows and BANDE means Thread).
The history of threading is not very clear, some says it stared in China, Turkey, or Persia.  In Ancient Persia threading was a sign that a girl reached adulthood and become a woman.

How it works?

A cotton thread is pulled along unwanted hairs in a twisting motion to trap the hair in the mini lasso, and lifts hair right out of the follicle.

Type

Common method is to make a loop by putting one end in mouth or instead of mouth it can be pulled by putting in neck.
One other method is a twist in between fingers in both hands.
