Introduction

Introducing the Complete Guide to Lash Lift and Lash Lifting.

Lash Lift, also known as Lash Lifting, is a beauty treatment that lifts and curls natural eyelashes providing a beautiful curve to the lashes for about 6-8 weeks, depending on individual differences.

This procedure is popular among beauty enthusiasts as it maximises the use of natural lashes without the need for additional features like eyelash extensions or false lashes.


The treatment is performed in specialised salons. First, the lashes are cleaned and shaped, then a special solution is applied to curl the lashes. This process keeps the lashes naturally curled for 6-8 weeks.


One of the advantages of Lash Lift is its low maintenance.

After taking care during the first 24 hours, you can quickly return to your normal routine, making it suitable for people with busy lifestyles. It's also considered a relatively safe option for those with allergies or sensitive skin, and ideal for clients who prefer a natural look.


Another benefit of this treatment is that it enhances the appearance of the eyes, creating a brighter and more open look. This reduces the need for makeup, saving one’s time and effort. As a simple and effective way to bring out natural beauty, Lash Lift is supported by many beauty enthusiasts.


Section 1: What is Lash Lift or Lash Lifting?

The basic process of Lash Lift (Lash Lifting) and the expected results and benefits.


1. Consultation:

The Lash Lift(Lash Lifting) experience in a salon begins with a consultation discussing the condition of the client's lashes and the desired outcome. A professional knowledgeable in Lash Lifts will advise whether you want a lift or a stronger curl, and what shape suits your bone structure best. This is a good reference point when choosing a salon.


2. Lash Cleaning:

Lashes are cleaned with specialised products to remove oil and sebum.


3. Rod Placement:

A rod is placed on the eyelid to curl the lashes. The selection of this rod determines the shape of your lashes.


4. Lash Setting:

Lashes are set onto the rod, preparing them for the curl formation.


5. Application of Curling Solution:

A solution is applied to the lashes to create the curl.The professional will choose the best solution from a variety of options based on the condition of the client's lashes.


6. Use of Setting Lotion:

A setting lotion is applied to fix the curl in place.


7. Finishing:

Finally, the lashes are thoroughly cleansed, and products are applied to reinforce and nourish them.


8. Aftercare Instructions:

You will receive clear and informative instructions on maintenance, and how to care for your lashes following the Lash Lift.


The Lash Lift Benefit is evident in the expected outcome:

Naturally curled and lifted lashes contribute to an appearance of larger and brighter-looking eyes. This enhancement not only beautifies the eyes but also offers practical advantages. Typically, the curl from a Lash Lift can last about 6 weeks, significantly simplifying your daily makeup routine. Furthermore, it presents a more natural look and requires less upkeep compared to eyelash extensions, making it a convenient and attractive option for enhancing natural beauty.



Section 2: Basics of Eyelash Treatment

Lash Lift Results

Maintaining the health of your eyelashes is essential for keeping a beautiful and attractive eye appearance. Eyelash treatment becomes especially important before and after a Lash Lift. Let's delve into the details of eyelash healthcare and the recommended treatments before and after a Lash Lift.


1. Eyelash care:

- Eyelashes are delicate and susceptible to damage from daily makeup and environmental factors.

- Regular healthcare can keep your lashes strong and healthy, preparing them for beauty treatments like Lash Lift.

- Using serums and products containing nutrients that strengthen the lashes is advised. These promote lash growth and help prevent damage.*1


2. Treatment Before and After Lash Lift:

- Before Lash Lift: It's crucial that your lashes are healthy. It's recommended to use products that strengthen and moisturise the lashes. Since Lash Lift curls your natural lashes, the outcome varies depending on the length of your natural lashes. If you desire a more dramatic result, ensure your natural lashes are healthy, thick, dense, and long, or you might be disappointed with the results.


*1 However, highly moisturising serums can greatly impact the effectiveness of the solution on the day of the Lash Lift treatment. At my salon, we explain to all clients that they should not use highly moisturising serums or face masks around the eyes the day before and on the day of the procedure.


After Lash Lift:

Keeping the lashes moisturised and nourished is important to maintain their shape and minimise damage. Avoid oil-based makeup removers until the lashes return to their natural state, as rubbing or applying strong friction can cause breakage. Most Lash Salons advise avoiding water for the first 24 hours after a Lash Lift to stabilise the solution and improve retention.


3. Types of Serum Offered at Salons:

- Many salons offer various Serums (treatments) to promote eyelash health.

- These include moisturising treatments and fortifying serums containing nutrients.

- Receiving professional advice at a salon can help you choose the best serum (treatment) suited to your individual lash condition. Consult a professional for the best advice.


Appropriate application of these treatments can keep your lashes healthier, maximising the effects of the Lash Lift. Eyelash healthcare should be a vital part of your daily beauty routine.



Section 3: Lash Care – How to Keep Your Eyelashes Healthy

How to Keep Your Eyelashes Healthy

Maintaining healthy eyelashes requires a holistic approach. In addition to serums, it's essential to reconsider these basic daily routines:


Balanced Diet and Hydration:

Consuming foods rich in Vitamins A, C, E, B-complex, and essential fatty acids supports the health of your eyelashes. Adequate hydration also helps to flush out toxins from the body, which in turn promotes lash health.


Foods containing vitamins A, C, E and B and essential fatty acids include
Vitamin A: carrots, sweet potatoes, pumpkin, spinach, curry, liver, etc.
Vitamin C: oranges, kiwis, broccoli, peppers, strawberries, tomatoes, etc.
Vitamin E: almonds, sunflower seeds, spinach, avocado, kiwi, etc.
B-complex vitamins: whole grains, legumes, nuts, poultry, eggs, dairy products, green leafy vegetables, etc.
Essential fatty acids: salmon, tuna, avocado, walnuts, linseed oil, olive oil, etc.

Quality Sleep and Stress Management:

Quality sleep and effective stress management contribute to overall health and positively impact the condition of your eyelashes. Finding methods for relaxation and stress reduction is crucial to maintaining mental and physical health.


Though briefly introduced here, incorporating these healthy habits into your daily life can significantly strengthen and maintain the health of your eyelashes. I hope you find this information helpful.



Section 4: Eyelash Growth – Naturally Enhancing Your Lashes

Supporting the growth of eyelashes can be effectively achieved through specific products and methods. Notably, the ADVANCED.byK serum has been developed to foster the health and growth of lashes.


1. Enhancing Serum:

- ADVANCED.byK serum contains ingredients that support and elevate eyelash growth.

- Regular use can help strengthen, lengthen, and thicken your lashes.


2. Lash Lift and Eyelash Growth:

- Lash Lift, which curls natural eyelashes, underscores the importance of lash health.

- Strengthening your lashes with growth-enhancing products like serums can maximise the effects of Lash Lift.

- While Lash Lift does not directly affect lash growth, maintaining healthy lashes can significantly enhance the visual impact of a Lash Lift.


To ensure both the health and beauty of your eyelashes, a combination of using the right products (like serums) and professional treatments (like Lash Lifts) is most effective.



Section 5: Salon Treatment - Trusting the Professionals

Here's an explanation of the key points to consider when choosing a Lash Lift treatment at a salon and the expected results.


1. Selecting a Lash Lift Treatment and Expected Outcomes:

- When choosing a salon, focus on the experience and reputation of the practitioners.

- For a beautiful finish, ideal lashes are healthy with even length. Short or damaged lashes may limit the treatment's effectiveness.

- A well-executed Lash Lift features uniform curls and a natural appearance. The solution's application time varies based on individual lash conditions, and appropriate adjustment is crucial. Improper timing could lead to damaged or prematurely loosened curls.

- Typically, a Lash Lift's curl lasts about 8 weeks. However, lash growth (lash cycle) can cause curl directions to vary over time. It's normal for the curl to gradually lessen, but skilled professionals use techniques to minimise this variance, keeping lashes looking beautiful until the next appointment.


2. The Importance of Professional Treatment:

- Professional salon treatments assure safety and high-quality results.

- It's risky to perform this treatment yourself.

Self Lash Lift treatments come with several hazards. First and foremost is the need for expert knowledge and skills.

Without proper training, you risk damaging your lashes, including breakage, excessive curling, and uneven lengths or densities.


Moreover, incorrect chemical use can harm not just the lashes, but also the eyes and skin area. Misuse of solutions, excessive application, or inappropriate timing can lead to excessive lash dryness, breakage, or eye irritation and infection.


In addition, poor hygiene increases infection risks. Professional salons ensure proper sterilisation of tools and materials, which is deemed a challenging task at home.


For these reasons, self Lash Lift treatments are discouraged. Opting for a professional with the requisite skills and knowledge is the best choice for safe and aesthetically pleasing results.
