What is a lash perm?
Curl, lift, define
A lash perm softens the hair and allows your lashes to be reshaped into a curl. The process involves placing a silicone pad on the eyelid and using a special adhesive to attach the lashes to the pad. The lashes are then neutralized to lock in the curl and set the shape, and a nourishing solution is applied to condition and hydrate the lashes. The result is curled, lifted, and defined lashes that can last for several weeks.
How does it work?
The first step in the lash perm process is a consultation with a trained and experienced technician. During this consultation, you will discuss your desired lash curl and any allergies or sensitivities you may have.
Before the lash perm solution is applied, the technician will clean and prep the eye area to remove any dirt, oil, or makeup that may interfere with the process.
The technician will apply a special solution to the eyelashes, which typically contains a perming agent and a neutralizer. The solution is applied using a small brush, and the lashes are separated and positioned onto a silicone pad that adheres to the eyelid. The solution is left on for a few minutes, depending on the desired curl intensity.
Once the desired curl is achieved, the technician will remove the solution using a damp cotton pad.
After the lash perm process, the technician may apply a nourishing serum to the eyelashes to promote growth and prevent breakage.
How long will it last?
The effects of a lash perm can last anywhere from 4-8 weeks, depending on your individual lash growth cycle. It is important to avoid using mascara or other eye makeup for at least 24 hours after the lash perm procedure to allow the lashes to fully set.
Keep in mind
Overall, lash perm can be a safe and effective way to enhance the natural curl of your lashes. However, it is important to choose a trained and experienced technician who follows proper safety and sanitation protocols to minimize the risk of complications. Additionally, it is not recommended for individuals with sensitive eyes or those who have previously experienced an allergic reaction to lash perm solutions.
