No pain no gain: Eyebrow threading
One of the reasons why I started this blog was to share my experiences with readers so that when they enconter the same thing they have something to compare to. This last week, for the first time, I experienced eyebrow threading. Whoa, this thing hurts like no other! I have never experienced as much pain in the name of beauty as this. That been said, I love the results and I will do it all over again (with some change to my pre-procedure routine).
For many years, I have been having my eyebrows waxed. Lately though, I have been getting
neurotic health aware (thanks to an episode of Dateline) and monitoring the waxing process. I noticed that they dip the wax stick in the same wax pot for everybody! That can’t be hygienic, it’s like double dipping chips in a shared dip! I am not saying that there is germs sharing involved, but why take the chance. So, I said sayonara to eyebrow waxing and hello to threading.
The fact that it’s very clean (they use only a cotton thread), the hair takes longer to re-grow and it arches the shape of the eyebrows nicely, makes me give this a big PLUS in my books. I will definitely do this again but next time I will make sure I take a Tylenol hours before the procedure to alleviate the pain. They say no pain to gain people.
Here is a picture of my eyebrows I took right after the threading.
