Known to have originated over 6000 years ago from India, threading has and still is a popular beauty procedure amongst women.
Lush eyebrows are instantly possible with this technique. Working in a similar way to a lash lift or a hair perm, brow lamination is being described as a keratin treatment for your brows. By hiding gaps, thinning and unruliness, lamination can solve almost every problem.
The treatment begins with a consultation with your stylist. You will establish your goals and gain a better understanding of the treatment. A brow lifting cream is then applied which relaxes the hair and breaks down the hair structure to make it straighter and easier to style. Next, the brows are brushed into the desired position then a treatment lotion is used to set the brows in place.
From there, nourishing oil is applied to prevent dryness. Your stylist will tint your brows using a colour that fits you, then map the brows with a combination of threading and tweezing.
The laminated brows can last up to two months but if you want to prolong the look, feel free to ask for a brow wax.
One of the main advantages of this treatment is that it works for almost every eyebrow shape and style. Meaning that every man or woman of every race can comfortably go through the lamination process and emerge with a pair of sleek eyebrows.
Lamination doesn’t use make-up or other semi-permanent techniques to add extra brow strokes. Instead, it uses your own hair, therefore creating a natural-looking brushed up brows with no downtime and minimal aftercare. Another benefit is that it produces long-lasting results often lasting up to 6 weeks.
Although lamination is perfectly safe, there may be minor side effects depending on the type of skin you have. This is why your stylist will ask relevant questions concerning your health and medical history to determine whether the treatment and products are suitable for you.
Dermatologists have expressed some concerns considering the eyelid which is prone to irritation after the treatment. This means that you might experience redness, dryness and inflammation right after getting your brows done.
Another concern is the possibility of the chemicals getting in contact with the eye itself which could cause serious damage. Dermatologists have also warned against lamination since it could do more harm than good, by causing breakage, dryness and hair loss.
With this said, conditioning and moisturizing the brows afterwards with a moisturizing cream will go a long way in ensuring you have the perfectly shaped eyebrows.
Your stylist will advise you on what you can do to maintain your fresh brows but it’s normally really easy to care for your brows. Generally, you should avoid getting them wet for the first 24 hours. Thereafter, you can go back to treating them naturally and showing the world your new set of brows.
