You will be required to have a patch test at least 24 hours prior to your appointment. Your chosen beauty professional will dab a little perming lotion on a small section of your skin to test your reaction. If you do happen to react badly, it's far better for the reaction to occur away from the eyes in a contained area of your body.  

Eyelash perm aftercare

This procedure requires very little maintenance and is perfect for anyone that doesn't have time for regular upkeep. However, there is a little extra care required over the first 24-48 hours.

An eyelash perm could last up to six weeks if you care for your lashes properly. You are advised to follow the following eyelash perm aftercare tips:

  • Refrain from getting your eyelashes wet for at least 24 hours after the treatment.Swimming should also be avoided during this time.

  • Avoid rubbing or touching the eye area as you could irritate the eyes.

  • Don't spend too long in direct sunlight straight after your treatment, as this could weaken the perm lotion.

  • Be very gentle with your lashes. No rubbing or itching. Sleeping on your back is best if you are a face or side sleeper.

  • Allow 24 hours before applying any type of product to your lashes. After 24 hours, you may apply regular mascara, eyeliner, eyeshadow, or any type of makeup products you desire; it will not affect the lashes. However, NO WATERPROOF MASCARAS.

  • Do not use any oils, lotions, creams, shampoos, face washes, makeup remover wipes or pads on your lashes for a minimum of 24 hours.

  • NO heat, steam or sauna use for a minimum of 24 hours. Use of steam/saunas is possible after but may weaken the effect of your lash lift.

  • No other facial beauty treatments for 24 hours.

Eyelash perm/lift pre&after care


Providing your patch test goes smoothly, you'll be invited back to the salon at a later date to have your treatment. Your beauty professional is likely to administer your eyelash perm in a number of simple steps, as outlined below:

  1. Eyes and eyelashes will be cleansed with a non-oily make-up remover.

  2. An appropriately sized rod will be selected depending on the look you wish to achieve (bigger rods for a gentler curl).

  3. A thin strip of glue will be applied to the main body of the rod, which your beauty professional will then bend and shape to fit the curve of your eyelid snugly but comfortably. Your lashes will then be pushed upwards and secured to the rod.

  4. Once your lashes are fanned out over the curling rod without tangles or cross-overs, your beauty professional will then apply the perming lotion evenly over every lash using a brush

  5. Once coated, your eyes will then be covered with either a plastic film or a lint-free pad to generate warmth (heat speeds up the perming process).

  6. Once activated, your beauty professional will remove the perming lotion with a pad, using a gentle blotting motion.

  7. Another disposable brush will then be used to apply the fixing lotion over all the lashes.

  8. Again, a plastic film or pad will be used to cover the lashes and generate warmth. This will be left on for 10-15 minutes.

  9. After the allotted time, the fixing lotion will be removed with a pad. Your beauty professional will then gently remove the curling rods by rolling them downwards back over the lashes.

  10. A moisturising product will then be applied to sooth and cool your treated eyes.

  11. After any excess lotion is removed with damp, clean cotton wool, you'll be ready to admire your new look in the mirror.
