Are lash lifts damaging to eyelashes?

A lash lift is essentially where we use solutions to give your natural lashes a lift & curl. The solutions work by breaking down the bonds in the hair structure, allowing them to be reshaped. 

The chemicals used in lash lifts can be harsh if not applied correctly, they can cause irritation or allergic reactions. This is why a patch test is recommended at least 24 hours before to prevent any allergic reactions, we also say to leave it 6-8 weeks after having a lash lift before having another as this could lead to over processing & damage your lashes. 

The skill of the technician also plays a a significant role in the safety of a lash lift, as an experienced professional will know how to do the treatment properly minimising the risk of any damage. Improper application can lead to lashes being damaged or over processed. 

Lash lifts can be a very safe & effective way of enhancing the appearance of your natural lashes as long as you follow these precautions. By choosing a professional, undergoing a patch test & following aftercare instructions given after your treatment means you can minimise the risks.
