Your eyelashes can be styled in different ways with the help of a bunch of lash treatments that are quite popular these days. The most important one is lash lamination. In this blog, we’re going to unveil some bits about lash lamination and guide you through the whole procedure if you want this treatment for yourself. So stick around.
What exactly is lash lamination?
Lash lamination is a cosmetic procedure designed to enhance the appearance of eyelashes. It’s a chemical treatment that lifts and curls your natural lashes to make them longer, more lifted, and more open-eyed look. It is a relatively recent beauty trend that gained popularity as an alternative to eyelash extensions. The treatment is the same all around but different stylists call it with different names like lash lift, lash perm, lash lamination, permanent lash curl, etc.
What is the procedure for lash lamination?
The treatment is done by applying several products to your natural lashes. These products penetrate deep into the lashes to achieve maximum results. Here is a step-by-step guide on how this process is done.
Step 1 – Lashes are cleaned to get rid of all the makeup, skincare, and sebum residues to provide a clean canvas for chemicals to penetrate evenly.
Step 2 – Lower lashes are covered with patches or tape and a curling rod which is a soft silicone pad in the shape of a rod is placed above the upper lash line.
Step 3 – Lashes are lifted upward and glued onto the curling rod.
Step 4 – Eyelashes are coated with a perming solution for about 10 minutes that will soften and relax them into a straight shape.
Step 5 – The perming solution is wiped off and a fixing solution is applied for 10 minutes as well which neutralizes the perming solution and hardens the lashes into a curled shape.
Step 6 – The fixing solution is cleaned off and you get your lashes laminated. However, if you want to make your lashes darker then a lash tint can do this job better. A tint in the desired shade is applied to the lashes for about 20 minutes just like a hair dye.
Step 7 – The curling rod is removed and the lashes are cleaned from product residues. Now you can open your eyes.
What are the tips for maintaining lash lamination?
You need to follow certain tips to help your curl set and be long-lasting. A typical lash lift lasts up to 6-8 weeks.
- Don’t get your eyelashes wet with water, sweat, steam, or tears for 24-48 hours.
- Avoid touching them for 24 hours.
- Don’t wear eye makeup for a day.
- Don’t clean the lashes harshly, especially in scrubbing or rubbing motions.
- Always use a gentle, oil-free cleanser to remove eye makeup.
- Avoid wearing waterproof mascara as it contains oils that are hard to take off.
