If your lash lift has gone too curly, the first thing you will want to is:
1. First Relax
If your lash lift has turned out too lifted or too curly, the first thing you need to do is relax. It is very easy to fix, and there is no need to panic. Remember that lash lifts are not permanent, and they will eventually grow out. In the meantime, there are a few things you can do to help fix the problem.
2. Warm compress
If your lashes feel tight or uncomfortable, try using a warm compress for a few minutes. This will help to loosen up the curl and make them more comfortable.
To make a warm compress, simply soak a clean cloth in warm water and apply it to your lashes. You can do this for a few minutes each day until you see an improvement.
If you have sensitive skin, make sure the water is not too hot before applying it to your lashes.
3. Cottom or q-tip with vaseline
Use a cotton swab or a q-tip to apply some petroleum jelly onto the lashes. This will help to loosen the lifting a little bit.
4. Cotton or q-tip with coconut oil
If you have coconut oil on hand, you can also use this to help loosen the curl. Simply apply it to a cotton swab or q-tip and lightly swipe it over your lashes.
Both of these methods should help to loosen the curl and make your lashes more comfortable. Give them a try and see which one works better
5. Mascara brush
If you do not want to try oil or vaseline around your lashes, another option is to use a mascara brush. Simply brush your lashes with the brush to help loosen the curl.
Do this carefully so you do not cause any damage to your lashes.
Next, you will need to take a clean mascara wand and lightly brush your lashes.
This will help to break up the lash lift and make it look more natural.
6. Eyelash curler
Finally, use a lash curler to curl your lashes in the opposite direction of the lift. This will help them to lay flat and give you the desired look.
Start by gently pressing the curler at the base of your lashes and hold for a few seconds. Then, move it up slightly and repeat.
Do this until you have reached the tips of your lashes.
If you find that your lashes are still too curled,
7. Gently swipe your lashes with a cleanser
You can also try using a cleanser to help break up the lash lift. Simply apply it to a cotton swab or q-tip and gently swipe it over your lashes.
Normally, your lash technician will tell you to NOT wet your lashes for at least 24 hours to keep the lifting effect, so we want to do the opposite to break it down.
8. Redo your lash lifting with a bigger shield
Yes, it is possible to redo your lash lift at home, but we only recommend doing this if you are experienced. If you are not comfortable doing it yourself, please consult with a professional.
To redo your lash lift, you will need to purchase a bigger shield size than what was used originally. This will help to make the lashes get the perfect curl.
Make sure to follow the instructions that come with your lash lift kit and be very careful when applying the product to your lashes.
NOTE: Not all lashes will be in good condition to get a second round of chemicals. If possible, avoid a redo and wait until your lashes grow.
9.Get a keratin lash lifting process
If you want a more permanent solution, you can get a keratin lash lift. This is a professional treatment that will last for several months.
During the treatment, your lashes will be treated with a formaldehyde-free keratin solution that helps to strengthen and protect them.
The solution will also help to break the bad lash lifting, but I recommend to go with a professional to do this as well.
A keratin lash lift will eliminate any kinks, frizziness, or unruly curl in your lashes and should provide you with the look you desire.
10. Call your lash technician
At the end, you got a service that you paid for with the hope a satisfactory result , so the best way to deal with a bad lash lift is to call your technician and have a conversation.
Be calm and explain what you are not happy about. In most cases, they will be more than happy to redo the service or give you a refund.
Remember, it is always better to communicate with your professional and consider that everyone makes mistakes before leaving a bad review.
And while you call them, let’s try more things to repair our lashes
11.Apply a lash serum to nourish your lashes
Let’s take care of our lashes that have recently got in chemicals .
A good way to do that is by using a lash serum. This type of product will help to nourish and strengthen your lashes, making them more resistant to future damage.
Look for a serum that contains ingredients like biotin, keratin, or vitamin E. These will all help to keep your lashes healthy and make them less likely to break in the future.
There are many different lash serums on the market, so find one that suits your needs and budget.
Why has your lash lifting gone wrong?
The best thing to do to avoid something from getting wrong is to prevent it in the first place. Let’s talk about why your lash lift may have gone wrong.
There are a few reasons this could happen:
–The first reason is that the lash technician may not have applied the silicone rod correctly. If the rod is not placed correctly, it can cause your lashes to curl in the wrong direction.
-Another reason why your lash lift may be because the technician didn’t use the proper size of pads.
Because the chemicals alter the way your natural eyelashes curl, I propose waiting for your natural lash growth cycle to complete before trying anything else.
Let them shed naturally until they’re all replaced by new lashes.
And then. If you want to try eye lifting again, make sure your technician use correctly-sized silicone pads used rather of rod-style ones next time.
How to know if you go a bad lash lifting
If you are reading this post, this is the first signal that your lash lifting could have gone wrong. Otherwise, you would be super happy with your final result.
But let’s be more specific and talk about the symptoms of a bad lash lift: If you experience any of these symptoms, then it is likely that you have had a bad lash lifting experience.
Your lashes look shorter than they did before
If your lashes look shorter than they did before, it is likely that the lash technician applied the chemicals for too long.
This can cause your lashes to become brittle and break off at the base, which will make them appear shorter.
If you notice this happening, you should contact your technician and explain the problem immediately.
They may have an unnatural shape.
If your lashes look like they have an unnatural shape, it is likely that the lash technician did not apply the chemicals correctly, the shield correctly that is causing your lashes to be lifted in the wrong direction.
Your lashes may also look like they have an unnatural shape if the technician used the wrong size of pads.
They are excessively curled or lifted
As we mentioned above, there are some tips to fix this at home, but as the same as the others, this is not normal in a regular lash lifting process. And it means that your lash lifting gone wrong.
You have lost a lot of lashes in the process
If you have lost a lot of lashes in the process, it is likely that the lash technician applied the chemicals for too long, damaging your lashes in the process.
If you have lost a lot of lashes, you should contact your technician and explain the problem immediately. They may be able to offer you a discount on your next lash lifting treatment or I’d ask for a full refund.
This is so unfortunate and unprofessional. I personally never had this problem before, but I’ve seen many people that have gone through the same thing.
Lash lifting is a process that needs to be done only for professionals to avoid this from happening.
I’m sorry if this has happened to you, and I hope you can find a way to fix it. Remember that you are not alone in this and there are many ways to fix it. Just be patient, lashes grow again.
There is redness, swelling, or irritation around your eyes
If you have redness, swelling, or irritation around your eyes, it is not NORMAL and you should seek medical help immediately.
You feel your lashes touching your eyelids.
If you feel your lashes touching your eyelids, it is likely that the lash technician used the wrong size of pads.
This can cause your lashes to be lifted too high, resulting in them touching your eyelids.
This feels so uncomfortable, and it can irritate your eyelid skin. So try to fix the exaggerated curl as soon as possible.
In conclusion, these are some of the symptoms of a bad lash lift. If you experience any of these problems, it is likely that you have had a bad lash lift experience.
