What to Know Before Using a Lash Lift Kit

 

So, you are thinking of using a lash kit to enhance your already beautiful lashes! Good on you, girl. We will tell you everything you have to know. In order to make your lash treatment last, you will have to make sure that you do pre- and post- maintenance properly. 


To have an effective lash lift treatment, you will need to make sure that your lashes are long enough, wash your lashes before the treatment, follow the instructions to a T, make sure that your lashes are straight, and keep up with your lashes afterwards by avoiding water for 24 hours, oily make-up remover and waterproof mascara! 


In this article we will go over everything that you need to know before giving yourself a lash lift! Happy reading :) 

Length of Lashes


It turns out that the length of your lashes matter when using a Lash Lift Kit. If your lashes are too short, you may need to wait a bit before giving yourself a lash lift. According to Total Beauty, “People with really short lashes, on the other hand, aren't great candidates for a lift. If you have a stubby fringe [we] recommend using a growth serum and waiting eight to 12 weeks before getting a lift.”


Luckily, ForChics has an amazing, natural eyelash enhancing serum that you can easily use to prep for your lash treatment! Just apply once a day, nightly, before bed. Your lashes will be longer in as little as 3 weeks, then you can go ahead and do your lash lift treatment. 

Right Before Application

Make sure that you wash your lashes thoroughly with an oil-free makeup remover, to get any make-up or moisturizers off of the lashes! This step is absolutely vital in making sure that the perm solution works its magic! 


Also, the lash pads may be a little bit uncomfortable. You can cut the lash pads. You should feel free to customize however you see fit. You can cut the lash pads and apply as many times as needed to make sure that you are comfortable and that your bottom lashes are protected!

Make Sure Your Lashes are Straight! 

Ok, this part is key! Whenever you are brushing your top lashes over the lash pad, you need to make sure that they are as straight as possible! Once you start perming them, the lashes will set where they are placed, so if the lashes are not straight, they will perm crooked, and you don’t want that! 

After the Lash Lift

After the lash lift, for the first 24 hours, you shouldn’t get your lashes wet. Also, please avoid sleeping face-down. Yepp, make sure to sleep on your back just to make sure that the lashes set the right way! Also, for best results, try not to wear any eye make-up for the first 24 hours as well. Once those 24 hours are up, you are free to do as you choose! 

What Does it Feel Like?


Overall, the treatment is not painful, but it may feel strange. The lash lift kit will not harm you, provided that you follow the directions for the pre and post upkeep! Make sure to keep all chemicals out of your eyes! If you get any chemicals in your eyes, please immediately flush them. Also, do one eye at a time so that you can see! The eye that you are perming will need to be closed!

When Should I Not? 

If you suffer from chronic dry eyes, or have conjunctivitis or eye infections, you should not give yourself a lash treatment! Really, if you have any eye or skin conditions which might impede the treatment, it would be best to consult with your doctor first. 

Upkeep Afterwards


For the weeks following your lash lift kit, there are a few different things that you can do to affect the longevity of your treatment. For one, you can keep your lashes tangle-free and smooth by brushing through them with a spoolie daily. Also, using oil-based makeup removers may reduce the longevity of your treatment, so try to avoid those! 

Conclusion


In conclusion, you should prepare for your lash lift before doing the treatment. If your lashes are on the shorter end, you should use an eyelash growth serum for a few weeks beforehands. Make sure to wash your lashes before the treatment, and follow the instructions of the lash kit. Don’t get anything in your eyes. After you finish, maintain the treatment by avoiding oily make-up removers and water-proof mascara!
