Threading is an ancient way to remove hair that sprang from the east, in countries that are now known as Egypt and India. For many reasons, it's becoming very popular on the west side of the globe as the go-to method of getting rid of unwanted fuzz. It removes hair from the entire hair follicle, lasting up to six weeks.
How Does it Work?
A thread (often made of cotton) is pulled along unwanted hair in a twisting motion trapping hair in what can be described as a mini lasso, and uplifts it right out of the follicle.
About 1/16 of an inch of hair is needed for thread to wrap around.
