Is lash lifting damaging to the lashes?

Posted on 30 Apr 2021

The chemical process of breaking the disulfide bonds within the lash is damaging to the lash if not performed correctly. Over processing the time on the lashes means the bonds are either not able to be reformed well enough or they break so far that they over-process. Applying the lotion to the ends of the lashes (which is not the area we want the re-direction of the lash to occur) can also cause damage to the lashes. The inclusion of lanolin in the lifting lotion offers moisture and nourishment to the lash while the bonds are being broken in order to soften the hair and provide support.
