Lash Lift Aftercare 101

Lash Lifts are growing in popularity in the lash industry. The treatment works with your own natural lashes and provides little to no maintenance unlike its sister lash service of extensions. Eyelash Extensions can be a little more high maintenance in terms of their aftercare. Lash Lifts require very little in terms of aftercare, so if you’re a low maintenance type of gal this is the service for you. Just check out this before and after below! How gorgeous is that lash transformation?!

Our Lash Lift treatments take approximately 1 hour to 1 hour and 15 minutes depending on whether or not you choose to add a tinting treatment. Once the treatment is completed you must keep the lashes dry for the next 24 hours. This is crucial because the treatment needs time to fully set into the lashes. Think of it as an old school perm, you weren’t allowed to get your hair wet for 24 hours so the curls would set. Same thing with a Lash Lift, we are curling your natural lashes up so the curl needs time to fully set. 

Serenity Beauty Bar offers a 48 hour satisfaction guarantee policy. If anything happens during the first 48 hours after your treatment such as the curl falls for your Lash Lift, we will redo the service complimentary. Due to this policy we ask our clients who receive a Lash Lift treatment to keep the lashes clean of any makeup for the first 48 hours so that we can determine if the curl fully set or if it didn’t set due to water or stubborn lashes. 

What I mean by stubborn lashes is that some lashes are naturally very thick or straight. Sometimes lashes like this need a double treatment for it to fully penetrate the lashes and keep them curled up. Its not common for people to have to return for a second treatment, however it is possible. This is why we provide the 48 hour satisfaction guarantee policy, to ensure the treatment takes and you love the way your lashes look. 

Once the first 48 hours is passed and you haven’t lost any curl to your lashes, your daily maintenance for your lashes is no different than what you were doing prior to the treatment. You don’t have to use any special cleansing products or aftercare treatments. Its your natural lashes so you can clean them as you normally would when  you wash your face morning and night. The only thing we recommend is using a Castor or Coconut Oil on your lashes before bed 2-3 times per week. If you forget its no big deal, you won’t loose your lashes or anything. We recommend this because it will help keep the lashes hydrated. Just like an old school perm, Lash Lifts can dry out the lashes slightly so by applying Castor or Coconut Oil 2-3 times a week will help boost the hydration levels in your lashes significantly giving you soft, healthy lashes. We will provide you with a mascara wand to take home with you so that you can apply the Castor or Coconut Oil with it or to brush through them to keep them straight.

We also get questions regarding makeup use after a Lash Lift. You can use any makeup you want after the 48 hour period is over. You can go back to wearing mascara, eyeshadow and/or eyeliner like you normally would. Most clients find they don’t need to wear any mascara for at least 2-3 weeks after the treatment, especially if they get their lashes tinted as well. 

Thats it! Simple isn’t it?! Lash Lifts are literally a no maintenance game so its perfect for those who are busy and always on the go, moms who don’t need to worry about aftercare or touch ups, or those low maintenance people who want a natural enhancement without any work. If you haven’t tried a Lash Lift yet, I highly recommend it! You won’t be disappointed!
