Lash Lift Con: There Can Be Wear and Tear
Like with lash extensions, you need to see a professional who has had a lot of practice. In most states, it is required that you have a cosmetology license. (Check your state board to learn the qualifications needed for those administering lash lifts.)
"When the lash lift is overprocessed, it can damage the natural lashes, giving a frizzy look," Christina Son, a lash lift specialist in Los Angeles, told POPSUGAR. "It is important that your lash lift artist assess the natural lashes first to give the proper lash lift."
I get my lash lifts every three or so months — my lashes hold the curl well — but I notice that if I don't wait long enough, the treatment can make the tips of my lashes brittle. It is a chemical service, after all. My technician is very careful, and once she noticed this, she has advised me to wait and give my lashes a rest, because as you probably could guess, this treatment is addicting.
