It's been a little while since I've written a blog post but I thought I'd shed a little light into what lash lifts are all about. Lash lifts are basically lash perms, with a new name and new process.
Previously, perms used disposable rods and they weren't very popular or well known. Lash lifts use silicone rods instead and give a more natural lift to the lashes rather than curling into itself.
They are an amazing alternative to eyelash extensions, especially for clients who may have developed an allergic reaction to Cyanoacrylate, the main ingredient in eyelash extensions adhesive. It's also great for clients who just don't want the maintenance of eyelash extensions and coming in for fills every 2-3 weeks.
Lash lifts will last up to 6-8 weeks, through one lash cycle. Keep in mind that each individual lash will be in a different phase of the lash cycle, so as they continue to grow and shed, you will have some remaining curled lashes and then your other lashes growing in with their natural curl pattern.
Maintenance is low, because you can still wear mascara and sleep on your face with no issues. After the service just keep your lashes dry and free from oils, shampoos, etc for the first 24 hours.
Adding a tint to the lash lift gives you that mascara look as well, so it's a great addition!
