Eyelash lift and tint for natural looking eyelashes
is the process of lifting the lashes around a rod then perming them to the perfect curve then tinting them with a safe color giving the result of a beautiful natural looking lash.
Its a great alternative to Eyelash Extensions for a natural healthy approach to growing your lashes. Eyelash extensions are great for the person that can maintain a 2 week schedule to having them refilled.
The eyelash lift and tint and provide many benefits:
- lifting the lashes making them look longer
- separates the lashes spreading them out. We find that shorter lashes can be swaying towards one direction or another giving the appearance of a shorter lash but in reality if they are lifted and spread out, they will be longer.
- no need for mascara unless you want to use it lengthen and thicken
- no need more eyelash curler. After many uses the eyelash curler rubber piece may break off, breaking lashes at the same stress point time after time of repeated use
- healthier lashes
- lasts from 4 – 6 weeks.
Very relaxing procedure. Chemicals are not in the eye, they are on the lashes brushed up with a thicker product that doesn’t move. Eyelash lifts can be done on different size rods to accommodate the actual lash texture.
Short, brittle, and sparse eyelashes
can be caused by physical rubbing the eyelashes then they eyelashes break off. Brittle eyelashes could be a result of medications and expose to the sun. Biological stresses including application of makeup improperly, aging, sickness, poor nutrition (big one) always dieting and eating less nutrient foods without supplements or over supplementing, hormonal shifts from menopause or just hormonal imbalances.
Cristy from York, Pa says:
“my lashes were see through and disliked that I had to always put mascara on before I went to the pool. I didn’t realize how long my lashes looked after I had the Eyelash Lift and Tint” People used to ask if I felt ok, I did, but since my eyelashes were transparent I looked like I was ill”. I have had eyelash extensions before the Eyelash Lift and Tint but I like the ease of not worrying about a two week appointment. I love them.”
How do we help our natural lashes grow?
We utilize lash conditioners such as Glow Skin Beauty Lash Conditioner, they help provide support of nutrients to the lashes with the result of appearing healthier within weeks. “Lash conditioners help stimulate lashes and brows at a cellular level, enhancing follicle penetration of key ingredients and improve the health of the lash follicles,” stated by Samuel Alioto, president and CEO at MediNiche, featured in American Spa magazine. One ingredient that is used to strengthen lashes is Peony. Who knew?
With regular use of lash conditioners they can protect eyelashes and brows from damage by providing moisturizing hydration. “When you moisturize the lashes, you protect their health,” says Melissa Jansma, vice president of sales and marketing at Blink. “At the same time you are growing new lashes, leading to stronger thicker-healthier looking lashes.”
The eyelash cycle has 3 phases:
- anagen stage is the active growth phase
- catagen is the transitional phase
- telogen is the resting phase
Eyelashes cycle through every 30 – 60 days losing a minimum of 3 eyelashes per day.
Eyelash conditioners are designed to extend the life of the anagen (growth) phase therefore keeping your lashes longer. At some point they will be replaced with a new lash.During this phase, keeping the lashes longer, fuller and moisturized will slow down the fall out stage.
What if you are using Latisse? It’s prescription only, contains prostaglandins, which mimic hormones to stimulate growth in eyelashes and increase the duration of the anagen (growth) phase. While these are effective, these ingredients may produce some side effects including the eyelid or iris discoloration.
Due to the potential side affects manufacturers have developed formulas that are alternatives that seem to be safer and just as effective. Some of the ingredients such as amino acids, peptides, fatty acids, vitamins and minerals nourish, condition, strengthen (those are the peptides) and improve the overall health and appearance of the eyelashes throughout the entire duration of the eyelash phases.
These phases are important especially if you are constantly wearing eyelash extensions.
Lash Conditioners-do they work?
Things to look for in eyelash conditioners are peptides to help up regulate the androgen receptor and stimulate the follicle to grow, hydrating ingredients keeping the eyelashes movable and healthy so that they don’t break, mild exfoliants to clear buildup of dead skin cells at the base of the lash around the follicle. This allows the thicker hair to evolve and giving the lash conditioner a better absorption environment to live and breath in. In many cases, we have discussed the fact that lash mites (little bugs) live off the skin cells on the actual eyelashes. This is important with your lash maintenance.
Ingredients to look for in Lash Growth Conditioners
Growth factors are found in eyelash conditioners and in many skin care products to turn over cells. This ingredient helps increase the keratin genes that promote hair growth and biotin, a B vitamin that promotes healthy hair growth, protects against dryness and thickens the cuticle for fuller looking eyelashes and brows.
Nutrients for hair skin and nails
Improving Collagen and elastin in the skin also helps encourage eyelash growth, which i why hexapeptide-11 is the key ingredient in Lash Advance. It is a bio-fermented peptide derived from yeast that improves collagen and elastin production, enhances elasticity. At Indulge Salons, we are a firm believing in Collagen because of the fantastic results that we have seen with overall improvement in skin elasticity, hair growth plus general health improvement. We carry CollagenBlu which is a natural marine collagen that promotes and restores hair growth over a period of time. It comes in 30, 60, 90 supplies. Enhancing the energy in the body to turnover cells, helps improve the hair bulb (in the skin) promoting hair growth and the ability of the eyelash hair to function during the the anagen (growth) cycle of the hair fiber.
Natural ingredients such as soybean oil rich in vitamin E and phytosterols. Provides a protective barrier against harmful free radicals and provides a level of resistance against the appearance of aging. It also imparts a sheen and luster to eyelashes making them appear lush. Amino acids help replenish the building blocks of eyelashes by boosting the protein structure and helping them appear fuller and healthier. Pumpkin seed extract which contains a high level of zinc as well as amino acids and fatty acids and vitamins will enhance the appearance of eyelashes. Our product Pumpkin E from Rhonda Allison is an exceptional smooth vitamin product to apply to skin and lashes when doing your regular skin care regime in the morning or evening.
Panthenol is a natural humectant (means it attracts water and retains it) It helps coat the eyelashes and seal in moisture. Peony extract helps strengthen the lashes for durability and Castor seed oil and glycoaminoglycans to soften brittle eyelashes and green tea to protect eyelashes and brows from oxidative stress and UV radiation damage provides soothing properties to the lashes. Hyluronic acid is a beneficial ingredient that helps strengthen and hydrate eyelashes.
We also carry Hyluronic Serum within our Rhonda Allison skin care line. We have seen the powerful results Hyluronic does to the crepey skin. In our research for the best Lash conditioners available, one of the ingredients that popped in our search was extracts from apple, lemon, and sugarcane which offered a natural mild alpha-hydroxy fruit acid exofoliation that clears the follicle which we spoke about earlier. A copper complex for anti-hair loss and natural plant and herb extracts to nourish and counteract breakage.
We found at Indulge Salon that the hair companies and manufactures such as Wella have copper inside their hair color formulas to protect the actual hair while processing. The results are healthy shiny hair. These companies expect their ingredients to perform for the consumer and are always looking for the best most trending ingredients towards a natural approach to healthy hair, eyelashes, skin and nails.
