What is a Lash Lift?
A lash lift, also known as a lash perm, semi-permanently lifts and curls your eyelashes using a chemical solution, giving the result you’d get from false lashes or a curling tool. The solution used has keratin, collagen, and other natural ingredients deemed safe for the eye area. The whole process takes about an hour and offers a lash tint add-on.
What happens during a lash lift?
In the first step the a setting glue will be put on your lashes onto a silicone shield, which will be used to mold the curl shape. The applied perming solution will break up the disulfide bonds in your lashes, making it possible to reshape the hair. It sits for up to 12 minutes, depending on how resistant your hair is, and then another solution will set the desired shape and stop the initial process of reforming the disulfide bonds in your hair. If you’re combining your lash lift with lash tinting, the darkening process is the last step.
What to expect after the lash lift?
For the first 24 hours after your lash lift, you should avoid showering or getting your lashes wet in any way (stay away from steam and humidity). It’s also recommended that you not wear mascara or eye makeup. The results last about 6–10 weeks, so you’ll need to get a lash lift every few months if you want to maintain the results.
