Eyelash permanent wave, or more commonly called an eyelash perm, curl and lift eyelashes using hair perming technology. It is a semi-permanent method for curling the upper lashes. This opens up the eye area, creates a look of youth and eliminates the need for daily eyelash curling.
Lashes are treated with a perm solution which is then followed by the neutralizer. Each being left on for about fifteen minutes. A soft curler, like sponge, in the shape of a rod is placed at the base of the lashes where the lashes take on their new shape. There are small, medium, or large rods depending on the natural length of your lashes or how curly you would like them to be.
The chemical reaction breaks and reforms the bonds of the hair. This reaction softens the lashes inner structure between the protein chains of the hair. The hair swells, stretches and softens, then it is moulded around the shape of the perm rod to form a curl. The over all procedure takes about 45 minutes to perform or 1 hour if adding tint.
As old hairs are lost and new hairs replace them, the curl will naturally diminish over time. Although eyelash perming is chemically based, it is far less damaging than regular use of eyelash curlers.
