Lash Lifts Everything You Need to Know

Long, curly lashes look exquisite, don’t they? Unfortunately, using an eyelash curler day in, day out can be a tedious process. Not to mention, it won’t always have the desired effect.
Of course, you can simply get a lash extension or even a falsie; however, they require significant maintenance. Not to mention, getting a lash extension is an expensive endeavor. Fortunately, there’s a solution, which is to get a lash lift.

Lash lifts are a form of chemical treatment that lift and curl your lashes on a semi-permanent basis. As a result, your lashes will look fuller and longer – the kind of effect you’ll get with a lash curler – for several weeks.

How Do You Get a Lash Lift?

Getting a lash lift is an easy and straightforward process. The first step is to visit a technician. When you go for your appointment, do the following:

– If you have lash extensions, get rid of them at least three days before your visit.
– Stay away from mascara or curls, at least two days before your appointment.
– Do not apply makeup on the day of your visit, be it eyeliner, eyeshadow, or mascara.
– If you use makeup the day before your visit, get rid of it with oil-free makeup remover.
– You might not be able to wash your hair until two days after the process, so if your hair needs a wash, it’s a good idea to do it beforehand.

At your technician’s place, there’ll be a consultation to determine the type of curl you want. After this, your technician will purge your eyelids and lashes of whatever residues remain on it with a protein remover solution. Next, they’ll separate your top and bottom lashes. Then, they’ll place a silicone patch on your eyelids, after which they’ll attach your lashes onto it with an adhesive.
Once the lashes are in place, they’ll spread the perming solution to the root of your lashes, after which they’ll reshape them with a curling rod. Once this is done, they’ll add a setting solution to ensure the curl stays in place. Finally, they’ll add a conditioning agent to strengthen the hair and soften your hairs.

From start to finish, the entire process will take less than an hour.

Can I Do a Lash Lift Myself?

The short answer to this question is no. Yes, it sounds easy and straightforward; however, you’ll be dealing with chemicals and a rod. Given how close to your eyes you’ll be operating, it is in your best interests to seek a certified beauty technician for a lash lift.

How Long Will My Lash Lift Last?

There are several factors that determine how long a lash lift will last, from how fast your lashes grow to how well you maintain them.
Depending on these factors, you can expect your lashes to last anywhere between four and eight weeks.

How Do I Maintain My Lash Lift?

After getting a lash lift comes maintaining it. Here are some tips on how to do that:
– Hydrate your lashes with castor oil twice or thrice a week
– Avoid water-proof eye makeup, as it can weaken your mascara
– Brush your lashes daily
