AVOID WATER, CLEANSERS, STEAM AND HEAT FOR 24 HOURS
Natural hair is acidic, with a pH of 4.5-5.5. During the Lash Lift process, an alkaline lotion is used to break the bonds. Although the bonds are reformed with the set lotion, the hair is still a bit alkaline after the appointment and therefore the bonds need a bit of time to stabilize. The lashes can be cleaned with a damp cotton pad if needed. Water, steam and heat are things that can change the physical bonds of the hair. As the hair is still stabilizing, exposing it to these sources can prevent the chemical bonds from stabilizing. Exposing the lashes to cleansers, steam and heat prematurely can cause the brow hairs to become unruly.
Lash Lift is a chemical process in which the hair bonds are broken and reformed, during this process, it can cause the hair to become dehydrated. It is very important to condition the lashes daily to maintain the results until the lashes grow out. Failure to condition daily will result in frizzy and unruly lashes.
AVOID PHYSICAL CHANGE TO LASHES
• Eyelash curlers should not be used, as this can change the curl of the lash, resulting in unruly lashes. • Avoid sleeping on lashes. Clients should sleep on their back or side to prevent the lashes from being squished. Constant squishing will result in unruly lashes. • Avoid rubbing eyes, as the natural lashes can get ripped out.
