Ancient technique provides healthier hair removal future

Threading, an ancient hair removal technique thought to have originated in Asia, is gaining increasing popularity within Australia because it is less damaging to the skin.

Threading involves doubling a cotton thread, and then rolling it over areas of unwanted hair, removing each hair from its follicle.

Australians are discovering the benefits of threading as opposed to other hair removal techniques, particularly shaving, waxing and depilatories.

By removing hair at a follicle level, threading prevents the normal pitfalls of shaving, such as pimples and ingrown hairs.

As threading does not require the application of heat, it also prevents inflammation, burning and bruising typically associated with waxing.

"Threading is perfect for people with sensitive skin," says Amby Suneel of Instyle Glamour Beauty Salon.

Threading is arguably the most 'natural' form of hair removal, because it does not involve harmful chemicals, as commonly found in depilatories.

"It only requires cotton thread, talc-free powder before treatment and soothing aloe vera after," says Suneel.

Eyebrow threading can cost as little as ten dollars


Threading is traditionally used to remove hair from the eyebrows and upper lip, however it can also be used on broader areas such as the arms and legs.

"Threading gives the eyebrow a defined and precise arch, because it removes hair in segments," says Suneel.

The origins of threading have long been debated, with most accounts pointing to India and a gradual shift throughout Asia and the Middle East.

In Australia, more and more major beauty salons are including threading within their services.

"Definitely threading is taking over Australia with a bang," says Suneel.

So next time you're feeling more Yeti than Betty, look to this ancient hair removal technique for a natural and skin-friendly solution.
