One of the most popular procedures this year, eyelash lamination, can be called an alternative to eyelash extensions. We will try to present the most important nuances of this procedure asked among clients, but also to show the difference between gene lamination techniques, botox or microwave.
What does eyelash lamination mean?
Eyelash lamination is the extension, curvature and thickening of natural eyelashes with the help of special compositions, which allow beauty lovers to save time for makeup, because the lamination effect gives the feeling of applying a layer of mascara on the eyelashes. Eyelashes become longer, more flexible, with an ideal color and, at the same time, absolutely natural, subtly shaping the shape of the eyes.
How to do the eyelash lamination procedure
Eyelash lamination is a complex cosmetic procedure, which is performed in several stages.
- First of all , the eyelashes must be cleaned of cosmetics and degreased with a special solution.
This will allow the preparations to penetrate better into the hair. A special cream should be applied to the skin around the eyes to soften it and prepare it for the procedure.
Then, the shape is selected, which depends on the type of curvature we will have in the end. In this case, you need to be guided not only by your own preferences, but also by the natural length of your eyelashes.
- The most important step – positioning and fixing the eyelashes.
The lashes should be well stretched, separated from the roots to the tips, parallel to each other. Only in this case the result will be a beautiful one, and the eyelashes will look like millions.
- In the third stage, the master applies the chemical compounds consecutively.
The first composition acts on the keratin in the structure of the eyelashes in order to form the desired curvature.
The second composition neutralizes the action of the first, fixing the curvature. Between the first and second composition, care components can be applied.
- The next step is to color the eyelashes.
Depending on the type of procedure, the third chemical compound is applied at this stage – botox, keratin or nourishing oil.
- At the end of the procedure, the master must thoroughly clean the eyelid and the space between the eyelashes, to avoid allergic reactions.
The whole procedure takes about an hour.
Pros and cons. It is the lamination of harmful eyelashes
If eyelash lamination is performed by a qualified master, the procedure may not be harmful. On the contrary, lamination is safe and even useful to some extent.
Laminating the eyelashes nourishes the eyelashes, makes them healthier, and after this procedure the hairs do not fall out and do not change their shape after sleep.
Keratin and the oils in the composition strengthen the strands, the hair being covered with a thin film that protects it from the external influences of the environment.
However, before doing the rolling procedure, it is a good idea to consult a specialist. Even if they are few, there are still contraindications. If you have eye problems or are allergic to some components of rolling products, you may want to skip this method. Lamination is also contraindicated in pregnancy and lactation, when the effect of lamination may be unpredictable due to changes in the mother’s hormones.
What is the price for eyelash
lamination The cost of eyelash lamination depends on the level of the beauty salon, the skills of the master and the quality of the materials used.
The price of the service usually starts from 200-250 lei in salons, but it is much lower if you opt for the procedure done at the master’s home.
How long the rolling effect lasts The rolling
effect lasts on average 1.5 months, depending on the individual eyelash growth rate. Remember that your natural lashes are completely restructured for 3 months anyway.
Laminated eyelashes can be dyed
As the eyelashes grow, the lamination result of course gradually passes. So you can apply mascara without any problem.
How to care for laminated eyelashes Laminated
eyelashes do not require special care. You can visit the sauna, you can sleep on your stomach, you can swim in the sea and at the pool, you can apply eye care solutions, you can wear lenses, etc.
The only restriction is not to wet the lashes within 24 hours after rolling, as complete restoration takes place in about two days.
What is the difference between biowaving and lamination
For the lamination of eyelashes are used nutrients such as keratin, coloring pigments and other care components.
The biowaving method is more aggressive. Moreover, it does not dye the lashes black, but, on the contrary, can lighten them easily.
In contrast, the cost for biowaving is 30-50% lower than for rolling.
What is the difference between botox and lamination
Botox is an additional treatment for thickening hair due to the keratin and collagen in the composition. It can be combined with biowaving or rolling to get the maximum effect. The cost in this case increases by 20-30%.
Which procedure is more effective – laminar or eyelash extension
Both lamination and extension are suitable for any type of eyelashes – long or short, thick or sparse.
The difference between lamination and extension is very simple: if additional threads are glued during extension, then chemical compounds that give volume and length are sufficient for lamination.
Consequently, by lamination you get a natural effect, “my eyelashes, only more beautiful”, and by extension you can “add a little drama”.
Also, according to the extension of the eyelashes, the girls must follow certain rules: not to sleep with the “face in the pillow”, not to apply cosmetic oils on the skin around the eyes, not to go to the sauna and the pool. Lamination has no such contraindications.
