What is Lash Lift?

Lash lifts, also known as eyelash perms, are rapidly gaining popularity as a simple yet effective beauty solution.

This procedure lifts and curls our natural eyelashes, giving them a longer, fuller look without daily curlers.

Beyond the convenience of waking up with beautiful lashes, it's the time-saving aspect that's winning the hearts of our clientele.

For a more in-depth exploration of lash lifts, including their benefits and maintenance, please read our informative blog post below.

Why is the Lash Lift so popular?

Lash lifts are gaining immense popularity for several compelling reasons. 

Firstly, they offer a natural enhancement of your lashes, giving them a longer, fuller appearance without the need for daily mascara application. This is a major draw for individuals seeking a low-maintenance beauty routine. 

Secondly, the results are instant and can last several weeks, making it a practical choice for those with busy lifestyles.

The simplicity and effectiveness of lash lifts make them an attractive option in the beauty world.

Now, let's explore the main concept of this blog.

Lash lifts typically last for about six weeks, though this can vary based on several factors. For first-timers, the effect may last around 3 to 4 weeks. This shorter duration is due to the eyelashes' inner core being tightly closed, exerting a force to revert to their original straight shape.

With regular lash lifts, typically done every six weeks, the inner core of the eyelashes begins to open slightly. This weakening of the natural straightening force extends the lift's duration to approximately six weeks. Regular maintenance helps sustain this effect. Indeed, many of our regular clients return every six weeks to maintain their beautifully uplifted lashes.

Eyelashes naturally shed about five lashes daily, and renew every three months.


As new lashes grow over time, the effect of the lash lift gradually decreases.

Therefore, to maintain beautifully curled lashes, we recommend redoing the lash lift every 5 to 6 weeks, aligning with the natural eyelash renewal cycle.

This routine ensures lashes remain aesthetically pleasing and uniform. As beauty professionals, understanding and educating our clients about these aspects can greatly enhance the overall experience of their lash lift.

Lash Lift After Care

▼Post lash lift treatment, it is important not to wet the lashes for the first 24 hours


Setting of the Chemical Treatment: 

In a lash lift, solutions are used to alter the shape of your eyelashes. These solutions need time to fully adhere to your lashes and fix the desired curl.

Impact of Moisture: 

Exposure to moisture can destabilise the chemical changes applied to your lashes. Since the shape hasn't fully set yet, moisture can disrupt this shaping process.

Effects of Heat and Humidity: 

Water from showers, pools, saunas, and steam can weaken the effectiveness of the treatment due to the heat and humidity they bring. High temperatures and humidity, in particular, can cause the eyelashes’ curls to loosen prematurely.

*Lash lifts temporarily alter the natural structure of your eyelashes. Eyelashes are made of a protein called keratin, and within this keratin are special bonds called disulphide bonds. During a lash lift, these bonds are temporarily relaxed to add curl to your lashes. Afterward, these bonds re-form to maintain the new curl. High heat and humidity can disrupt the stabilisation of these bonds, causing the curl to loosen more quickly. Therefore, it's essential to avoid such environments for a while after the treatment to preserve the lift's effect.

Therefore, by avoiding wetting your lashes and staying away from heat and humidity in the first 24 hours post-treatment, you can maximise the longevity of your lash lift. This step is crucial in preserving the shape and health of your lashes after the treatment.

After a Lash lift treatment, it's crucial to avoid any friction on your eyelashes

Lash Lift Process

Rubbing or vigorously brushing them can disrupt the newly formed curl and potentially weaken the eyelashes. This is because the lashes are still settling into their new shape, and any excessive force can misalign the keratin bonds that were restructured during the treatment.

When washing your face after a Lash lift, be gentle around the lash line. Make sure not to scrub your lashes. Instead, trace around them softly. Also, when drying your face with a towel, don’t rub. Gently dab or pat to absorb the moisture without applying pressure to the lashes.

Moreover, when sleeping, take care to avoid pressing your lashes against the pillow. The pressure can cause the lashes to bend or crinkle, which can alter the shape of the lift. It's recommended to sleep on your back for the first few nights post-treatment to ensure the lashes maintain their perfect curl and alignment.

Being gentle in this way helps maintain the longevity of your Lash lift. It's all about preserving the shape and ensuring the lashes don't get disturbed as they set into their new curl.

The effectiveness of a Lash lift can vary from person to person due to several factors

Quality of Natural Lashes: The results of a Lash lift can be influenced by the natural length, thickness, and density of your eyelashes. Each individual’s lashes have unique characteristics that can affect how they take to the lift.

Lash Growth Cycle: The natural growth cycle of your eyelashes also impacts how long the lift lasts. As the curled lashes shed during the lash cycle, they are replaced by your natural, uncurled lashes.

For more detailed information on the Lash Growth Cycle, check out our blog here.


Care Routine: The way you care for your lashes post-treatment can also affect the duration of the lift. Proper aftercare, including gentle cleansing and avoiding certain products, can extend the life of your Lash lift.
