What exactly is a lash lift?
It's like perming your lashes into a lifted, curled state. But unlike the harsh formulas that were once used to perm the hair on our heads, the treatment for lash lifts is more gentle.
It's also not quite the same thing as previous lash perm methods, which have existed for years.The old method of lash perming included a different formula and a different tool for actually curling lashes. The treatment was even banned by a number of states in the 2000s, and the Food and Drug Administration issued a warning against one perming cream in the late '80s.
