Earlier this week I tried an innovative cosmetic procedure - eyelash curling with permanent eyelashes.
Because I have short, straight lashes, I use the eyelash clipper every time I put on my make-up, but after I apply mascara, the lashes are left on for a very short time.
The procedure for bending the eyelashes is quite complex and meticulous, so it cannot be done at home, but only in a salon and by a specialized person and it takes about an hour if you want to dye them.
I chose to do this service in the salon Hair Wellness from str. Sibiu Nr. 17 because it is the only salon in the area where I live (Dr. Taberei neighborhood) with a team of only experienced specialists and in which my favorite products are used.
Eyelash curlers are available in three sizes and are made of a kind of sponge and are not reusable. Of course, the smallest size suited me.
First I had my make-up removed and then I was asked to close my eyes and not open them until the end of the procedure to avoid contact with the solutions. Then an adhesive was applied to my eyelid just above the lashes, but avoiding contact with them. The adhesive is much weaker than the one for applying false eyelashes and can only be removed with water. The little eyelid curler was glued over the adhesive and then a little more glue was applied to the curler. The eyelashes were glued to the curler by a rather meticulous procedure because they each had to be placed in an upright position, and we know that the eyelashes grow in all directions.
After arranging the eyelashes on the curler, the permanent solution was applied. The product is very different from the one for the hair, because it is much weaker and does not affect the root of the eyelashes in any way. The action time of the eyelash perm is 15 minutes and the eyes will be covered with an osmotic foil, after which the solution is removed with water and a neutralizer is applied which aims to stop the previous solution and which must be left to act for another 15 minutes. . After removing the neutralizer, the lashes are cleaned with cleansing disks with water until they come off the curler. The effect is immediately seen even in people with light eyelashes.
After finishing the bending procedure, the eyelash dyeing procedure followed. First I was applied a protective cream on the eyelid and under the lower lash line and then a protective plature. The operating time of the paint is 15 minutes after which it was removed with water. The effect is best seen after applying the first coat of mascara because I have very thin and short lashes.
I am very pleased with the result. My eyelashes are curved all the time and they seem to sweeten my eyes. It's weirder when I remove my make-up and forget that I painted them and I still insist on cleaning the mascara. I'm not used to having such black eyelashes yet :))))
The curving effect will last 2 months, and the procedure costs 70 lei without painting and 90 lei with painting. I really like the salon Hair Wellness and I love to get my pedicure there. I am mega in love with the massage chair (which really does massage), and Ioana, the girl at the manicure, has a very light hand. The hands also work with Opi, Zoya, Jessica and Kiko products.
